Lately

I really do miss blogging at this address.  I miss sharing glimpses of my life and having a journal of sorts for Henry to look back through someday to see what our life consisted of.  But I just can't seem to get myself to sit down and write.  What do I talk about?  What do I show you?  Our life is probably only interesting to us, and maybe my mom.  And that's only because she likes to see pictures of Henry.  Regardless, I thought I'd share a few things that have been taking up time in my life recently. A couple of weeks ago I went to Vegas with my siblings.  I have three brothers and one sister and we all went to celebrate my oldest brother's birthday.  I had never been to Vegas before (nor had my two youngest brothers) and what a weekend it was.  These are stories that we'll have forever.  The five of us didn't grow up together and over the last few years we've become closer and closer and taking a trip like this together was certainly a first.  I wouldn't have changed it for the world.  So many laughs, so many drinks, and one wheelchair.

Weather in PA has been like the weather I grew up with in Ohio and Michigan.  60's one day, snow on the ground the next.  We've had a VERY mild winter (as I'm sure most have) but we finally did get a good snow a couple weeks back.  I've been dying to take out Henry's snowsuit and introduce him to snow for the first time (he was too young last winter to care about playing in it).  He was a little cautious at first but after awhile he warmed up and then threw a temper tantrum when we made him go inside.

Now that it's stayed lighter out later in the day, Henry and I have made it a habit to play outside when we get home.  Swinging, soccer, racing up and down the driveway, it's all fair game.  (As proof of the weather thing mentioned previously, the above picture and the below pictures were taken within a week or so of each other.)

Now that I'm working four day weeks I relish those days that I get to have a whole day of just me and little man.  On this particular day we took my car for an oil change and inspection (thrilling!) and then had a breakfast date.  He's cuter than the average date, if you ask me.

These pictures have nothing to do with anything and are just random shots of our days but I love them anyway.

And finally the other big thing I've been working on is Holl & Lane- otherwise known as that thing that takes up all of my time.  Issue 6 launched this past week (please go read it!), and we have a bonus issue coming up for subscribers on April 1st followed by our 7th issue on May 1st.  Needless to say there's been a lot of designing happening for me lately which is my very favorite part anyway.  There are some BIG changes coming to H&L in the very near future and I'm so excited to see where this takes us.
