february days

"isn't the negative space in this bowl just so sexy?' i asked robbie when i brought home this thrift find.  look, he didn't have a lot to say about that...but, you know, we all have our passions. 

his: gastronomy. 

presenting: a lou who has just (triumphantly) kicked off his socks, a mum whose blush sweater matches the sofa (...almost always). i will reassert: we all have our passions. mine include: laundry, rattan, the bachelor, color schemes. 

i have approximately 4500 photos from this snowy morning, i'll make a post soon. but these two. oh heart puddle of heart puddles. uli slips that sly, suppressed smile all. the. time. and it always cracks us up, the way he holds in this huge sunburst grin...and then it just alllllll comes out with a magnificent squeal. i knew i wanted these somethings but i never knew what exactly they would be. how and when they would arrive and how much of my soul they would re-write. and that's motherhood. 

and the next morning brought more snow to a once-again happy boy. 

and these forest friends.

pastel forest birds

just two forest birds in pastel joggers, bout to go on their hike to the post box.

i recently treated myself to the 70s mama puffer coat of my dreams for all our nature walks...my first true cold weather coat after living in washington for so long. it was just the thing. i live for matching my boy ~ uli and i both had pastel leggings layered with thigh-high socks under our pastel joggers with buttercream sweatshirts and matching pink puffball hats. a sight to behold! 

p.s. a few have messaged me about this coat, pricing, sizing, etc. so!! my usual sizes were sold out so i grabbed on medium on super clearance -- oversized but so cute and cozy!

a good book: pablo picasso

for a long time now, i've wanted to share books we are loving, be it kid's books, poetry, memoir, what have you. but it always feels daunting and information-heavy. so i decided to keep it brief and light-hearted! no long reviews, no book round-ups...just a good book now and then. 

right now we love (loooove) this one: Birds & Other Animals with Pablo Picasso.it's part of the "first concepts with fine artists" which really has such a cool philosophy. rob and i are big picasso fans so we flipped when we stumbled upon a board book of his animal sketches. it is so beautiful and honestly i'd recommend this to anyone. literally anyone. kids or not. modern art enthusiast or not. it's so fun and funky!
