Well, I'm back - after a very needed 3 month break! I needed to step away for a bit and just catch up with life...and I'm glad to have taken the time. I'm working on "cleaning out my closet" a little bit - going through all the blogs I follow and removing ones I don't have much stake in. While many of them are beautiful, I've somehow ended up with over 200 blogs on my blogroll - and I think it's time to simplify!
I do have some exciting things that have been keeping me busy while I've been away. Mainly, this little guy:
This is Wally and he totally rules! He's so much fun - and also, a lot of work!
I'm also working on finishing up graduate school, which I'm hoping to complete in the next 4 or 5 months. I can't wait for that to be off my plate! The other exciting news is that I'm preparing to become an auntie for the first time in October! So, naturally, there have been plans for baby showers and searching Etsy for adorable little baby girl sewing patterns! I can't get enough of the beautiful patterns from TieDyeDiva - she has such cute patterns (including simple to follow instructions) and I've had nothing but great customer service from her shop!
I'll be back here and there - but will probably take it slow. I hope you're all enjoying this beautiful summer!
