I got some happy mail and want you to as well! The bundle of fabric that I curated for Fat Quarter Shop arrived and they have generously donated a bundle for me to give away too. Head over to my Instagram page and see how easy it is to enter for your chance to win!

I've mentioned how busy this little family of mine is lately. Super busy. And I'm so resistant to it.
Aggressively resistant you could say.
Unwilling to budge. Some people might call it stubborn.
For example, it only dawned on me yesterday (YESTERDAY!) that I could make quick and easy dinners that allow us to still sit down together and are easier on me. Uhhh..... DUH!
Stuck in the weeds I tell ya. And looking for time.

I have work to do but find all sorts of reasons to wander out to the greenhouse in search of that heady, loamy, earthy smell as I sprinkle the seedlings with water. I examine each pot for new growth. Rescue trapped butterflies. Move and shift and rearrange. And generally tinker for immeasurable amounts of time. Some of my best thinking is done out there.
Growth. The seedlings and mine.

Teenagers. I've got two of them. They are busy. And dramatic. And in an ongoing power struggle with each other (or is it with themselves?) And distracted. And, often times, frustrating.
Optimistic. Energetic. Ambitious. Hilarious. Hungry! Adaptable. Curious. Intelligent. Willing to try and fail. And try again.
And mercurial. For I write this on a morning filled more with paragraph one, knowing paragraph two is just moments away.

I've been telling you about the remodel of our master bathroom since late January. You can see the before here and an update here.
See a peek of the transom window I was telling you about? And the vintage concrete utility sink?
We've been using it for over a month now but it's not done, done. Not done in the sense that I'm still finding all the pretty things I want to have in there. And once it's done, done, I'll share it more properly.
Being a blogger and all.
