As you guys know (and have heard a million+ times), I've been pretty busy around here. Besides the cookbook (!!) I have another BIG project I'm working on--- I've been working on it for a few months now, lots and lots of planning---- and well, I'll be sharing that new adventure, very soon. It's a new territory for this space--- but one that I know can and will be amazing. I'm nervous and excited (like I am with all new things), but it's a dream that I can't wait to share the details on soon. I hope you guys like this adventure as much as I do.
SO, while I've been busy busy, Alex has been working working on the back yard and Marlowe, well, I think she's adjusting pretty well to all this extra busyness. She's been helping out quite a bit (best taste tester I know), still building a zillion towers---- and I've been doing my best to keep her entertained by simple and easy crafts here and there. (pom pom box, anyone?) Lucky for us that we have an extra space, for messes of all sorts---- sewing, painting, paper, yard, just overall MESSES (so many messes!) and now: food photos and toddler crafts. As many of you guys know, we don't have a TV. That's not to say, we don't watch things, because we do. We have a netflix account that gets used every couple of nights where we can put mindless stuff on a computer. It just doesn't happen often. And it's very, very rare (think: never) for it to happen in the daylight hours. Soooooo, we're working on that balance. On every balance, all the time. And hopefully I can keep thinking of fun projects that she can do mostly by herself. It's always a give and take, but so far, these easy things have been working :) Also great to keep a toddler busy? A camera. As you guys saw last week, she's bee quite the photo taker. I have a few more (think hundreds) of Marlowe gems in my camera and phone, that I'll be sharing more of every once in a while. There's a good amount of laughs when you see our (my) life, from her point of view. ;)
