Life Lately // In Snapshots


1. 43 days 'til spring  //  2. i've been wearing this christmas gift from robbie almost everyday  //  3. blog editorial planning for the month  //  4. this little creature had her first cold. she beat it fast.  //  5. 4 inches off my hair and an especially awkward facial expression  //  6. our pals at minnetonka sent essley the best gift - these adorable baby moccasins  //  7. my old + dear friend christine's little girl violet drew this special picture for essley  //  8. fondue and awards shows  //  9. my final daily blood pressure reading/bidding farewell to gestational hypertension  //  10. my little business errand running buddy  //  11. coffee at essley's grandma's house after her very first sleepover  //  12. packing lots of v-day card wholesale orders this past week  //  13. traditional superbowl foods - made 100% vegetarian  //  14. absolutely beautiful gift from essley from my soul sista laura  //  15. ess posing for the camera  //  16. i waited 4 months to get my gold 5s. totally worth it.  //  17. winter sunset in the suburbs  //  18. love this little raccoon butt


And 3+ months after my last 'life lately' update, here we are. (For new readers, these posts document some bits and pieces of recent day-to-day life via good ol' non-fancy cell phone pictures.)  Between the holidays and business/order madness, the end of my pregnancy, Essley's birth, and taking care of a new baby, I suppose I've been so focused on the 'big things' that I haven't really stopped and taken much notice (at least not here on the blog) of the smaller pieces of my life.  In all honesty, over time I've really been utilizing Instagram more for this purpose anyway.  I know that not everyone is an Instagram user, however, so I'll do by best to continue to share now and then on the blog as well.  (If you are on IG and would like to follow there, you can do so here, under user name bubbyandbean.)

Who else has been forgetting to slow down and pay attention to the smaller moments lately?

  8. what sweet pictures! It does take a bit of time to return to 'normal' life, but oh is it worth it to enjoy those first few weeks of your baby's life. Enjoy!

  10. Those moccasins are just way to cute!
    I love how the 5s phones look, but I'm such a newbie with phones, the 5c is just fine for me. =0) Although, I really do like the gold.
