Let me tell you about my day.


Hubby and Carter snuck out this morning to bring us breakfast. Our family eats lots and lots of hashbrowns.

We hung out in the living room together for a while. I wanted so badly to get my camera but I just decided to live in the moment. Then eventually I couldn't stand it any more and Noah brought it to me and I snapped away at my beautiful life.

We drove to my in-laws' nearby to hear about my Mother-in-law's recent trip to Israel. I love taking pictures of people I love's hands.

She brought back necklaces for the boys with their names in Hebrew, and a pashmina scarf for me.
Oh and King Solomon cologne for hubby oooh la la.


In Israel she ate lots of salads and falafel, even for breakfast. I love Mediterranean food. I kinda want to go there just for the food.

I nursed Ivy.

Hubs took the boys to hit some golf balls and I came home to put Ivy down for her night-night-nap.

The house was so quiet.

A dress I ordered for Ivy from etsy came! Maybe she'll wear it on Easter.

Flowers were delivered from my friends at Old Navy, just to wish me a happy spring, (along with a generous Old Navy gift card.) What a nice surprise!

The deliveries woke sleepy Ivy and she wasn't too happy.


I made a little bed for her on the couch by me and she fell back to sleep.

I needed to finish a bunch of laundry,

but I hated to squander all the quiet!

Soon, though, hubby texted : Gray threw up. We're on our way home.

Dot dot slash. : /

We were supposed to have a big dinner with our favorite friends and their families tonight, I've really been looking forward to it, and now what?

I think it was from bad strawberries he ate earlier. But I don't know for sure.

I was super bummed so I took off to Starbucks for an iced latte and lemon bread. Then to Target where I got new pretty rugs for the entryway and kitchen.

Now hubby has Ivy napping again in his recliner

the boys are playing nicely upstairs

Noah set fire to French toast sticks in the microwave and I threw them in the yard,

I've got my earbuds in and I'm listening to my friend Steven's new album on repeat (I love it)

and no matter what we decide about tonight,

things are pretty ok.


  1. wow that was quite a day! lots of fun, nice ans sweet moment and some other not so nice (hope that the sickness won't stay!)

    thanks for sharing!

  2. The everyday is so beautiful.

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. Ah stink for Gray getting sick. I love days like that though (not when the kids get sick but days when we can just be together) and I love quiet time :)
    Those flowers are beautiful. How very thoughtful of Old Navy. And nice so you can get some much needed clothing for your littles :)
    That dress is darling. Reminds me of the strip skirts I have started making. What shop did you get them from?

  4. An ordinary day of love. Beauty in the midst of the common.

    I love how you see things, Steph. You teach me to be more aware.

  5. I love you, my friend.

    Your eyes are very clear---seeing to the simple truth.

    And that makes me really really like your words:)

    Happy Spring Stephanie.
