MY BABY GIRL IS ONE

somehow the day that felt so far away is already here. my baby girl is one year old today.

i can't even begin to explain the happiness, laughter, exhaustion, and tears that have come with becoming part of our family. she makes my heart so much more full on a daily basis. i'm so thankful to have her in my life.

happy birthday baby hazel.

A FLIGHT TO THE HOMELAND

cancelled flight
we're heading to missouri tomorrow to celebrate hazel's first birthday (and my 33'rd) with family in the park i grew up in.

we'll be spending the week having fun with grandmas and grandpas and cousin's and aunts and uncles and we couldn't be more excited to see everyone again. 

just hope the flight situation will be better than when we traveled in march and everything was cancelled.

WELL CRAP

looks like i've completely forget to keep up with the blog again.
it happens.

maybe it's because i worked full time for two months at the new york times? or maybe it's because i can barely keep up with balloon production on my etsy store (who knew so many people love emoji balloons!?) or maybe it's because we bought a house and are in the middle of negotiations? or maybe it's because i'm gearing up for renegade craft fair so producing a ton of stuff to sell? or maybe it's because i've been planning hazel's first birthday?

hmm. i'm sure it's one of those things

BABY MEETS FISH

back in march when our flight to atlanta was cancelled due to weather, we decided we still needed SOME kind of adventure that weekend, so we took hazel to the new york aquarium for the first time.

we had no idea what we were about to witness. she was in awe of the fish swimming back and forth literally inches in front of her face. she would have stayed there for hours if we could have.

seeing her excitement and joy and watching her entire face light up is exactly why being a parent is so amazing.
