Pictures Of Recently Enjoyed Things

a new watering can and a dress from mexico to make for the cutest flower watering girl ever. 
gifts from kathleen... a dollar for alex.  
 first thing she does every morning is dress herself or come and wake us up to get her a "pretty dress"
she built a tower and wanted to take a picture of it. I'm not sure what is more amazing, the tower taller than her or wanting to take a picture of it. 
spring rolls to be made... okay, actually fresh rolls. 
sometimes you got to put on a suit and play in the rain.
lives in an apron.
well. 
let's drink hot lattes and pretend it's fall, okay south florida?
(this machine was the first purchase alex made for our house when he moved in. It was pricey, but holy cow it's saved us money and an espresso every morning is the best way to start the day)
the first time alex has ever-ever left work early enough to have dinner (and bedtime) with us. 
tacos, of course. 
 I find them everywhere. They're apparently good friends. 
I love how often I quietly find her reading. 
pho sho.
(if you're local, THIS PLACE is new and amazingggg)

  5. mmmm pho, looks so good! I just returned to nyc after a weekend trip to miami to see my boyfriend, miss it already. I know people always say the grass is greener on the other side, but I'm jealous of the consistency of florida weather. also marlowe is so cute! she sounds like such a good, sensible child too.

  7. Love all of her "pretty dresses" - maybe you can just let us know when you buy her a dress so we can buy the exact same ones for Violet? ;) Also - is she just one who naturally plays/reads on her own or do you have any tips on that? Violet has actually backtracked since I had Lucy - there's definitely a little jealousy going on there. For the life of me I can't get that girl play/read on her own for a bit or even be in a different room lol. I love playing with her, but sometimes I can't like when I'm nursing Lucy or getting her down for a nap, and I'd love for her to be able to play independently for a bit.

  8. I LOVE pho! I used to live near Chinatown/Vietnamese areas of Chicago and loved being able to walk somewhere to get delicious pho and/or bubble tea!
