A Good Saturday

Sometimes, even though the fog of sleep deprivation is thick, you just have to get out. Break the rhythm. Break the routine. Get some fresh air. And have a little fun.

The sunny skies of the first day of October, coupled with an Open Streets event, provided the pull we all needed to break out of our home and enjoy the day.

Slow strolls. Train rides. Sandboxes. Giant building blocks. Running around. Lunches out. Dunk tanks. Sidewalk chalk. Music. Dancing. And the Puppet Bike (my personal favorite).
Yes, it was a good Saturday. When can we do it again?

This Moment

Inspired by Amanda over at Soulemama, I’ve chosen to spend Fridays taking the chance to record a single moment from the everyday around here. One moment that I just don’t want to forget.

On the weekends we’ve been making special efforts to have some fun family adventures. The weeks have been a little tough around here (part of the reason for the silence this week). Balancing two kiddos. A husband in grad school. A handmade business that I’m trying to get off the ground. The best way for us to really enjoy each others company is to get.out.of.the.house. So we do.

Last weekend we visited a Chicago landmark, the Crown Fountain.

The whole time I watched Ewan play I was reminded of our visits last year. And how big he has gotten.

And now I’m going to get all weepy. Great.

Happy Friday, my friends. I hope to be back with some shop news and an uber-delicious recipe to share next week.
