i’ve been a bad blog mother. i began this tumblr journey when i first left facebook, and now that i’m back on the fb, i’ve neglected this sweet, little, creative outlet. oh, and not to mention i now have twitter, an instagram account, and oh yeah, A BABY. (although not a social medium, that last one is the happiest and purest of addictions.)
life is crazy. but beautiful and good and happy. not to say the last 11 months haven’t been the most challenging months of my life, but they’ve been the most rewarding. and i’m thankful for all the sweet moments - the ones i used to overlook.
no need to get heavy here.
work has kept me busy. real busy. and i still love every minute: whipping up ads with photoshop, whipping up media buys for event promoters… but my latest and greatest pastime is whipping up baby food. (damn, i love the food processor. sweet potatoes for dayz.) and yes, i’m aware of the non-parents who roll their eyes at this type of jargon. i used to be one of them. but seriously, being a working mom is the best kind of crazy. you’ll see.
anyway, i’m making a more concerted effort to provide this little blog with enough tlc that my husband won’t have to again ask, ‘hey, what about your blog?’.
so here’s to more youtube vids and cell phone pics, and not overlooking the little tumblr app on my phone.
it’s been far too long since I’ve blogged, but having a baby is a valid excuse, methinks. little jovie was born on 12/9/11 - 4 weeks early. what was supposed to be a routine dr. appointment turned into: “surprise! let’s do this tonight.” so after the initial shock for the mr. and myself, we prepared for the longest, yet most rewarding, 23 hours of our lives. life couldn’t be any sweeter and our family feels complete. and yes, henry is a great big brother. thank you to everyone for the continued prayers and love. we are blessed!
LOVE the theater fire’s cover of elliott smith’s “say yes.” doesn’t it make your heart swell?
a few years ago i took jj to see these guys live. he was hooked. this will get your tuesday thumping.
dr. dog - “heart it races”
my sweet jovie is loving this song right now.
