I’m up way too late considering that Nora and I are going off island tomorrow for a very rare vacation. We are flying to Kansas City where we are so excited to get to see a ton of family from both my mom’s side and my dad’s side. I’m just about done packing (just a few odds and ends left for the morning), the iPod is loaded with Nora’s favorite music, and I actually dug out a purse (which I never carry), but before I crash I wanted to share a quick run down of what we’ve been up to the last few days.
We’ve had time with friends
at the beach
and at birthday parties
(which is the perfect excuse to wear a fancy dress
and, of course, eat cake!).
I’ve been working like a madwoman on a website for Nora’s new preschool, which included a photo shoot of the building and some kids playing.
The shoot was a great way to introduce Nora to the space
and another opportunity for her to interact with her new teacher, Miss Melanie, which means when September 10th rolls around hopefully she’ll be nothing more than excited.
Now that World Breastfeeding Week craziness has come and gone, I’ve also gotten back to doing something I love: sewing. I made a curtain for my friend Jess’ little boy’s room
and Nora’s third birthday dress, of which I’m only going to give you a peek.
But I will tell you that this year’s dress is made to match her party theme: her favorite character, Maisy. I’ll share party details shortly after we get back, assuming I can manage to finish everything I want to do in just five days. For now, I am off to bed before our big day tomorrow through airports and across the country with way more luggage than two people should need.
