It feels like a lot has been going on over here, but nothing out of the ordinary has changed— maybe its just the approaching events that make it feel that way…. or the vacation time we got together that refreshed us and made this home and space feel even better. Whatever it is, this week, I felt and feel (maybe more than ever before) so grateful for this space.
I think I finally sat back for the first real time ever and said “Whoa, this is awesome. I’m so happy and pretty amazed I created this blog.” I don’t always give myself much credit, so it was definitely an awe and good moment. I’m so grateful not only for this space I’ve made, but I’m grateful for you guys. Silent or active, whoever you are, I appreciate you guys and everything I have here—the support, the friendships, everything. Thank you guys, you play a big part in this happy place.
As a big celebration to all good things in September (Marlowe’s 3rd birthday, a trip to Massachusetts, a nice job change for Alex), a celebration to all good things in this life in general, and as a THANK YOU for all the support and extra amazingness you guys bring to my life, I’m offering 33.3% off all medium and small side bar ads this month. You know, 33.3% in honor of Marlowe turning the big three 😉 You can find my ad shop HERE

&&&I don’t know how you guys feel about link list, I typically don’t do them, but I like them and figured it would be a nice way to end the week 🙂
-I get a lot (A LOT) of questions about my clothes. I say I don’t care for fashion, but I mean, is that true when I love project runway? (whatever happened to Andre?) I try to answer all “where did you get this?” questions as much as possible, but I know I’m not great at linking or mentioning them on the blog. (Please email me if I missed any questions— clothes related or not, anything.), I’m always happy to answer.) I won’t be giving fashion advice anytime soon (you don’t want or need it from me), but if I can recommend one item to have you in your non-winter life, it’s a nice pair of high-waisted shorts. You may have noticed, I live in them— all day, everyday. I’ve had the same three pairs for years now, they only get better with time. (hashtag floridalife)
-Did you enter our awesome giveaway yet? Not much time left.
! Realistically, I’ll probably never get to it, but I’ve gone back and forth with the idea of training to be a doula. Birth is freaking amazing. Doula’s are amazing! Maybe one day I can cross it off my maybe dream list.
-I love this single mama
. I read her blog back when she was a new mom, shit happened, she stopped blogging, and now she’s back at it and it’s amazing to see how well her and her little one are doing.
did a detox recently and documented/blogged about it
. You know, she wasn’t lazy like me about it. She did awesome and didn’t give into my texts about pizza. Let’s all do a detox kit
together soon, k? Maybe October first?
-In love with this little girls dress.
PS. I finally set up my instagram sale. half has been sold, but there are still a few of mine and marlowe’s items left for grabs!
Thanks for being here and supporting my family and this place 🙂
Have a great weekend, everyone!
