I'm grateful for a (relatively) new niece as well. Her constant love and curiosity for the world around her is an inspiration. She gives every plant her undivided attention.

Oh Aja, how exciting! I can't wait to see the posts for this. Think of all you'll learn, see, and do! I love campfire smell so much I often prolong washing my clothes after I've been around one so I can keep smelling it. :) Love the Finches by the way.
Well if you decide to make one you could send me a pic. I'd love to see it. :)

I put this together in no time at all. I was looking for a jewelry holder to put in my bathroom but I can see this serving a number of purposes to display whatever you want. I'm imagining dried flowers arranged on it. Here's what you need: An assortment of... Continue reading

I loved this post. Mine told me to chill out and soak in the tub. So in went lavender, lemon balm, chamomile and rose petals. It was bliss.
Thank you Aja!

Me too. I love how ridiculous the size is, especially when someone doesn't know you brought it with you. "Hang on a second, I want to take a picture," and then you pull out a camera that covers your entire face. :) I thought about posting my instax photos on my blog before. Thanks for the inspiration.

My recent trip south I saw this band as an opening act. Very mellow listening. Good for wind down times and country drives.
