I have been feeling a huge sense of relief since telling you all that I’m moving this blog in a new direction. Big changes for big dreams can be scary and exciting at the same time. I feel like there is SOOOO much I want to do and share (and I will), but I’m trying to get all my little duckies in a row. Part of that has been updating my new shop on Society6. (Free shipping + $5 off through March 9th by clicking HERE) Still a work in progress, but at least it’s progress. Thinking about having a shop on my page instead of just using Society6. Thoughts?
On Monday I headed over to the flower market with baby E in tow. So many flowers. I’ll have to take a picture for you the next time I go. I went knowing exactly what I wanted. Pink peonies. Sure…. its not the right season for peonies, but I had a vision. That vision was instantly squashed when I couldn’t find a single stem. Not one.
I did find some beautiful cabbage roses, but there were pricey. Thankfully that same vendor sold the most gorgeous ranunculus stems in shades of cream and pink. I was sold. I walked out with 3 bunches of ranunculus and 2 sad looking bunches of anemones just for fun. These are a few of the shots I came up with.
I still had an hour before I needed to go pick up V, so I made myself a little bouquet. I remember when I was planning my wedding, that I specifically wanted blush ranunculus, white anemones, and big fluffy peonies. My florist said it wasn’t possible in December, so I stuck with an all white bouquet. Thankfully this pretty bouquet sort of fills those dreams and now sits in my foyer. In fact, I can see it from my desk right now. I love it.
I had to get E up from his nap and loaded up in the car shortly after I finished taking photos. V had a really great first day back at school and special requested cheeseburgers for lunch. So cheeseburgers they got. A little rare fast food treat. I’m not sure how it’s possible, but she’s able to eat two easily. Baby boy finished his in record time as usual. Boy can eat.
It’s time for me to sign off. Lately, the little guy has started throwing mini tantrums whenever he wakes up from a nap. I blame the crabiness on cutting incisors and molars. Either way, he’s not happy and I have to go.
