Radio Silence

Why hello. Miss me? (Maybe don't answer that.) I missed you. I could offer a whole host of excuses for my absence, but, you know, just life. I wasn't here and now I am. At the moment at least. Truthfully, I want to be here. I think. I want to be somewhere, writing and connecting with like-minded folks, and here is an obvious place to do that. So what have I been doing?

Elliot turned one year old (in January!) and we had a house full of folks to celebrate and eat cake with us.

Now she's 19 months old (this photo is a few months old) and is the sweetest, smartest, silliest little person. Her blond hair curls at the nape of her neck, and though she will climb onto a piece of furniture given the chance, she is kind of terrified of the swings at the park.


She's a total mess. And a joy! We laugh every day (both with and at her).


I've taken up sewing, and find it to be a very satisfying, yet sometimes frustrating, hobby. Most of my efforts lately have been toward a boom of baby girls born among my friends, but I've got some projects up my sleeve. Do any of you sew?

That's about it for now. Thanks for stopping by. I hope to be back soon!

Enjoy life... and blog about it when you can! Your little girl is precious. Time flies by way too quickly!

She is a sweetie!

I keep thinking that I would like to learn to sew, but I would need to invest in a machine first. The last time I looked into buying something it was a bit overwhelming.

I hope you are back for good!

Happy to see you're back! I love to sew, although I agree it can be vexing at times. Every mistake is an opportunity to learn something new(and a judiciously wielded seam ripper is your friend).

So glad to see you, Jennifer!!! Elliot is gorgeous, love the hair!! Can't believe she's 19 months already. (Maura's about to turn 2 in less than a month!) Isn't this such a fun age?! Oh darn, I wish I could sew. So many cool projects you can tackle. It is definitely really hard to fit in blogging but I'm trying to hang in there, even if its by a thread. Welcome back:)

YAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYY. You're back! Stay back- you're the best blogger! And I need to see lots more pictures of Egirl.

Welcome back! I have two little peanuts myself so I know how wild yet fun life can be! Enjoy every moment with Elliot (she is beautiful!) and blog when you can :)

So happy to see some new posts. I ran across your blog a while back and delved into ALL of you past posts and was then thrilled to, at least, follow you on Pinterest. Looking forward to reading more:)
