Hello, friends! All that unraveling sure made the week fly by 🙂
Before I dive into TGIF, I have a few modeled photos of Hadley. I’m really pleased with how it turned out. and finally using the beautiful Nani Iro linen I bought at Purl Soho back in June.
FO selfies are hard … but here’s a little view of the back – and more of the slightly raised neckline (I cut a size 4 top, except for the V-neck where I traced the opening for the size 18.)
Thinking about holiday plans. (yes, finally.) We are delighted that Sara is going to be here for a few days after all; and now we need to figure out how to make the most of her visit. #goodproblemtohave
Grateful for Marc’s encouragement. about the sewing (and the serger!) and my new ‘do. I shared a teaser on Instagram last week about my new pixie cut. One of my goals for 2019 is to go gray (gracefully) and having super short hair seems the quickest path. Taking care of this cut is super easy, but short hair and the “new” color are going to mean changes in my wardrobe choices and make-up. #workinprogress
Inspired by all I’ve seen and read about George H.W. Bush these past few days. I especially liked these words, from Washington Post columnist Karen Tumulty,
“Grief has two dimensions: one, the magnitude of what is lost; the other, the inadequacy of what is left. That was the tension woven into the tributes. His funeral … managed, like the man himself, to do something that is nearly impossible — to be both regal and modest at the same time. … [The overarching] message was more a summons than a censure. It was a coda to the closing lines of George H.W. Bush’s 1989 inaugural address, in which he said: ‘Some see leadership as high drama and the sound of trumpets calling, and sometimes it is that. But I see history as a book with many pages, and each day we fill a page with acts of hopefulness and meaning. The new breeze blows, a page turns, the story unfolds.’ Bush’s own final page has turned. The book is closed. But the story continues to unfold, and perhaps reflecting on his better qualities might help us find them in ourselves.”
Imagine what a better place this world (this country) would be if we all set out “each day to fill a page with acts of hopefulness and meaning.”
Fun … Charlie visited Santa last weekend and finally smiled about it.
He even shared a picture he’d drawn of snowflakes.
It’s quite a change from previous years!Katie didn’t post this year’s photo of Sam, screaming in Rob’s arms “No Santa Me!” 😉
Hope you’re up to something fun this weekend! I have grand plans to sit on the sofa, with a view toward the twinkle lights, and add many rows to my ADVENTurer wrap. Happy Friday!
