Although I haven’t been here much I wanted to pop in and say I promise to be back soon with a whole lot to say. I’ve just been taking some time to process my thoughts on my own. Sending you lots of love and kitten kisses 😘🐱 #thebrothersdar #sjcALWAYS

With a little bit of news to celebrate I decided to leave hibernation and treat myself to a little something cute at the vintage store up the street. I ended up getting something other than this sweater but I’m taking inspiration from its marled yarn anyways. #knitabit
p.s. check out my stories to vote on my thrift store finds 💙

Things have been slow around here lately. I’m sticking to my new mantra of one day at a time. I’m trying to control my anxiety over things I can’t control and treat my body right when it’s asking for the opposite. And just when I feel like I’m failing I come across a moment like this. Where anxiety melts away, and the only thing we truly have, is to nurture each other emotionally and physically. Whether that’s morning coffee made with love or a snuggle with a loved one, even if that loved one is 16 lbs of pure mischief ✨ #mycatdarcy

When I’m feeling sad and low one of the biggest things that lifts me back up is the little glimpses of the father my husband will one day be. He has the kindest soul and when he’s around my niece, I melt. I’m keeping the hope that one day our kids will wait by the door and have this much delight when their dad gets home ✨ #myniecelucyloo

This is more than just a blanket to me. I cast on the first square on Mother’s Day when I found out I was pregnant the first time and finished it while I was recovering from the surgery that ended that pregnancy when we found out that baby wasn’t meant for this world. That soft white cashmere square is the center, and it symbolizes to me when I first became a mother. Circling around it is the square I started when I found out I was pregnant the second time, and all the ones I knit during that pregnancy and ultimately the yellow square I finished right after her funeral. Each square tells a story of a baby loved and lost, each stitch holds my hope for the future. I bring it with me everywhere and people ask me what I’m making, I tell them “a rainbow baby blanket,” because that’s what it is. With hopes it will wrap a little one up one day and tell a story of all those we’ve loved. #ourrainbowbabyblanket ———————————————
I’m so excited to finally do a #fringeandfriendslogalong.
I decided to knit each square individually to make the project more portable and seam them together in the end (although knitting them together sounds way more fun I needed to be able to throw this in my bag). I went with a pastel theme. Light colors ranging from cream, yellow, pink, blue, and sea foam green. I have plans for it to be a crib sized blanket. ✨

I wish I could end this year on a positive note. Write an uplifting paragraph about how loss and grief help you grow. But honestly, 2017 was the worst year of my life, hands down. I’m happy to stamp a bookend here and say Bye Felicia to 2017 and hope it doesn’t repeat its negativity in my life again next year. I’m hopeful that I’ve hit my bottom and I’m climbing out to a brighter new year. See you in 2018 ✌🏻

I won’t bore you all with the saga of my heat getting fixed (let’s just say I’m glad I’m renting and it’s a domino effect of electrical failure)... but today may be the day! I’m celebrating by trying to relax with a good book and not sneaking downstairs every 30 minutes to ask how it’s going. #mycatdarwin #bobbleheadeinstein

Suddenly in the middle of the day. Mid-Elf, mid-cookie baking, the sky darkened and the snow came down in a heavy blanket, for only a couple minutes. Long enough to lift my heart and Christmas spirit. And just like that, the snow stopped, the sun came out. And we cuddled in deeper on the couch. Magic is real ✨
