Looking forward to another year at Carrboro’s ELF!  Speaking of elves, life is busy making stockings, Christmas aprons and fabric surprise balls for Saturday’s market.  It’s been a great way to get into the holiday spirit!


life of late


a BIG congratulations to my amazing dad for helping his team win the gold at this past weekend’s senior olympics!  these two cheerleaders were sure proud of their papa!



so it looks like mister monroe is going to allow me 20-30 minute increments to do something besides tend to him.  pretty cocky for a 2 week old! but it does force me to prioritize and focus on the task…this time around i chose to revisit our family beach trip.  what an amazing time.  i can smell the salty air now…

these days

big sister lovin’ at its best:

friends introduced us to this great little park behind the raleigh little theatre.  it has a nice flat loop for riding bikes…olive’s latest obsession.

2 weeks down

olive’s friend made a beautiful big sister cake and came over to celebrate olive’s new role!
