let’s not

That time we moved the bed and that night neither of us could sleep because we had a new side, and after midnight we flipped and tried sleeping at the foot of the bed and it still didn’t feel right, and the only good things that came out of it were you found your chess set, and I found where I put all the kitchen cotton, and the next day I made your sleepy face some coffee and a bedroom colored dishcloth, and yes I love you, but no, I still don’t want to play chess.

(P.S been trying every excuse to work these lovely cafe hooks, going back to my very beginnings of utility crochet 💕)

March Special

March has always been special, mostly because it’s my birthday month and I am a total present & cake HOG!

I’ve been blissfully in love with the boy I met when I was just a girl and we’ve been together longer than we’ve been apart (aww I love you!) We have an unbelievable daughter who is our best parts gathered into one, who bravely left the familiar comfort of the Midwestern landscape, headed East to find what completes her and is becoming more and more absolutely incredible in every way (and I am handling it so much better with each passing day ..happily with much less woe!) I’m in such a fantastic place and want to be even more grand from here out!

In other fantastic Marchy things, I’m excited to announce that I’m featured in the March issue/volume 18 of Knitsy Magazine. I always thought my self-descriptive of “I live in a tiny little house, in a tiny little town, my life is calm and quiet ..I am perfectly content being a bore.” was really pretty accurate and that no one would ever be interested in me or my silly junk ..well, thank you so much guys xoxo
