flowers and babies

  • cappuccino in one of my new dishes.... it's like a beautiful rainbow in my cupboards
  • dried straw flowers from my mother in law's garden and a pincushion made by eislee's teacher brighten my desk
  • paperwhites in my windowsill make the entire room smell of sweet flowers.... aaahhh
  • and a special visit from my sister, brother in law, and new nephew.... oh, baby snuggles.... he really is as sweet as he looks. there is nothing like a newborn baby.

life is full of sweet little things and i am loving them.

what an amazing way to bring in the new year. this is the first birth that i have witnessed from the outside and i am in awe. there was so much love, strength, and such deep feeling. i think every one of us walked away changed forever by this amazing experience. one beautiful loving couple becoming a family. i cannot wait to tell my nephew about all of the love surrounding him on the day he was born. oh sweet jude... we love you.

at the end of it all

what a crazy wonderful holiday we had. it all happened so quickly with so many things going on. and in a flurry of paper and lights suddenly it is all over and we are left feeling thankful. thankful for many gatherings with friends and family that we haven't seen in far too long. thankful for so many very, very thoughtful gifts that have already brought us much joy. and feeling very humbled and reminded of what is truly important as yet another year comes to an end so very fast.
