Brett and I celebrated our 5th Anniversary on June 22nd by getting away from the city and our son (bless him) to remember how much we like each other. We were supposed to go on a guided tour but hit a traffic jam on the way and missed our group. So, we wandered around on our own for awhile and had an adventure. It was beautiful. We needed it. We talked about what we want to be different this year, what we need to work on now, how much things have changed since Sebastian...We flirted and teased each other like we used to when it was just us.
Sebastian will be one year old on the 4th of July. We've been parents for one year. It feels much longer. Not ready for any more right now. I want to savor this little one while he's little.
Brett is in the best shape of his life right now since he's been running with the club. I'm weaning the boy. We're taking it slowly. We're planning to see the rest of our family next month in the Midwest. Elsie and I will finally be able to play together again!
I've got the fabric for a commissioned quilt bought, washed, ironed and almost completely cut. Its going to take over my room! It was a good week of catching up (slightly) with the many details in the crafting compartment.
Our Art Journals did so well! I appreciate your comments about them and thank everyone who was able to buy one! We're doing a pretty fun July Paper Kit with some imported tape, vintage plastic flowers and unique robot illustrations from an Etsy artist!
Its good to be back. Thanks for reading!

It's soooo important to spend alone time with your husband even though it's hard to leave the kids. But,you'll discover that you're even a better parent by getting away.
Happy Anniversary!
My blog is a surprise for my husband today. He's still sleeping but I know how tickled he'll be when he reads it.

Yay for us having our anniversaries one day apart :)
Kevin and I think we are finally going to have a date night, since Katie will be 6 months on the 4th and we still haven't left her.
Glad to have you back blogging! :)
