A few things...
1. For my nieces' birthdays, I sewed them matching dresses (my first foray into kids' clothing, really) using the Geranium Dress pattern by Made by Rae. It is such a versatile pattern with a wide range of sizes and options. I totally recommend it, even for beginners.
Asking an almost 3-year-old to model her new dress looks a little like this:
And her little sister...
2. A few more pictures of when the family was all together. Had anyone told my sister and I five years ago that Kels would have two girls and I'd have a boy, we'd never have believed it. I was the girly girl and Kels was a total tomboy, so it's pretty funny this is how it worked out. And somehow pretty perfect.
3. Because we're moving, Brighter Day and Brighter Day Baby have to go on vacation mode for a few weeks. Before we do, though, we'll be selling lots of items we have in stock. I'll let you know when that comes, but it should be in the next week or so. A little preview... I'll be having one of each of these new messenger bags in the shop:The Fault in Our Stars this week and wow. Heartbreaking, hopeful, exquisitely written. I stayed up until 1am to finish it - I couldn't put it down. If you haven't read it, be prepared to laugh and especially to cry. That's all I'll say.
4. It's Friday! I'm headed to Cleveland for the weekend. Shawn will be in North Carolina, so I'll be taking my first flight alone with Liam. Should be an adventure. Do you have any fun plans?
