When I was pregnant, and before that, when the subject of kids came up people would always warn me about how much work it was... "You think you're busy now... wait 'til you have kids!" I always hated when people said that because I'm never not busy. It was a constant slur of warnings about how much awful, drudging work it was. Never did anyone mention how sweet it was to snuggle with an adorable, warm little baby, how great you'd feel each time you see her smile or laugh... And though my time is divided differently now, and my priorities have shifted, I still have lots of time for the things I enjoy... There was a great article on the Huffington Post recently that articulated exactly how I have been feeling about parenthood. In so many ways, having a kid has been so much better than I ever thought it would be.
Time is a little tighter but everything is doable (I have way less time to spend on Pinterest Now...) I'm really enjoying my time with Izzy. She's pretty hilarious. Right now she's on this sticking-your-tongue-out-is-hilarious thing. She's learning how to make all sorts of different noises. Last night she said "Hi. Ikea" clear as day!!! haha... She loves it when you sing "If you're happy and you know it" and also likes it when I make animal sounds during "Old McDonald." She has recently started to full out laugh, and it is the absolute best sound in the world.

The last few weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind, with reopening my lingerie shop, working on new items, and updating my pattern shop with new photos and pattern bundles. I have a bunch of new patterns on the way too, which I can't wait to show you!

The other kind of crazy thing I've been up to was renovating my studio. I did it on a bit of a whim. With the help of my bff Abbey, we completely tore apart the room, painting all of the furniture, the walls, did a bunch of organizing... and now I have this awesome new space. I'll do a full on reveal in a future post... I have to say, it looks pretty awesome and is so much easier to work in!
