found this gem from the other day.

she didn’t like the polka dots. the plants polka dots, not mine. mine are fine.

she set the table and made us lunch— then got distracted by dinosaurs.

    Have a fantastic weekend xxx

  5. I don't know why but I don't like the plant polka dots either. Like, when you buy those cheap bouquets of flowers from the grocery and after a few days, these perfectly uniform, perfectly spaced polka dots show up on the back of the ferns? I can NOT deal. I can not deal one bit. They completely freak me out big time.

    • I have the same issue– you should check out Trypophobia- there's a video on youtube, where you sit through as much as you can. The further into the video you can stand, the less likely it is that you have trypophobia. I last about 30 seconds. And now I have goosebumps and chills just thinking about it. Ick.

    • haha yes. that is a real phobia. I get middy freaked out— but not at all enough to have it be considered a phobia by me— I actually LOVE the polka dots on those ferns 🙂

  6. Just wanted to let you know that I discovered you this week and I have been loving your blog. I grew up in Miami and now I'm living in MA for college, so I really enjoy all the places you show and your story throughout the years.

    Your little family is adorable and so is your garden! 🙂

    • how fun! I both places so much, for very different reasons 🙂 I basically did the opposite of you 🙂
