Spring plans.

Oh, Stella. You're beautiful, but a colossal pain in the 🍑.

I got to witness the joy a perfect mud puddle can bring today. It was a beautiful thing. ✨

Really missed my mom today. Grateful for the happy distraction of a day with our best friends and the overflowing, joyous love that is family. Of all sorts. I am the luckiest. ❤️

My little music lover wanted to make maracas for his class Valentine's Day treat this year. Luckily, he only has seven classmates! This project was a lot of fun and very easy. We used mini water bottles filled with 1/3 cup couscous each. The handles are toilet paper rolls, hot glued to the bottle lids and covered with pretty paper. They sound great, I just hope the other parents agree! Pretty adorable that he wanted to share his love for music with his class, I think. 😍

This, I believe.

Focusing on this incredible human for the rest of today. No news, just joy. #whoimfightingfor

Remember that feeling on @barackobama's first Inauguration Day, when he and Michelle got out of the car and walked forever in the cold? So much hope. I'm holding tight to that feeling today.

My heart aches, can't believe it's over.

I guess you could say I've been in a hibernation of sorts. I've been trying to process the current state of things while funneling my anxious energy into sharing something positive. I can happily say that good things are just around the corner for my little shop. I wish I could say the same for 🇺🇸. But I'm finding hope in the knowledge that there are a lot of really good people out there. And here, too. I'm so grateful for this incredible community and all the support and encouragement that happens here every day. ❤️

As we approached the top of the hill and saw what had to have been 1000 people waiting in line, George said, "It& #39;s a celebration, mommy!" and I cried. This beautiful boy of mine waited with me in line for two hours to place our sticker on Susan B. Anthony's headstone. Somehow he understood how important it was to me that I say thank you.
