The other night Skylar thought pepper needed a bath. How he persuaded her to get into the tub will always remain a mystery to me. He was so proud and just radiating happiness. Can’t stop smiling at this.
I recently did an AMA on reddit about being a special needs parent. One of the questions asked was Skylar’s favorite things- adventure time, balloons, a very big fascination with the moon and stars. A wonderful person that read it drew this up for Sky and sent it to me in a message. I printed it out and showed it to him when he got home and he was so ecstatic! It’s hanging up next to his bed now. A very warm and big thank you again to Chandler for putting a smile on my sons face. There is always good in the world.
Added some more goodies to the shop! Vintage inspired knotted headbands, available for only $8 each. Always handcrafted with love in the USA. Shop here.
Romantic floral hair bow set. Available in the shop for only $8, and always handcrafted with love.
Skylar finally figured out how to use his harmonica. His laughter just radiates happiness in my heart.
Started dabbling in some men’s accessories a few weeks ago. Bowties available in 6 different prints, with an adjustable neckline of 14” - 18.5”. Always handcrafted with love. Available in the shop now.
This month marks a year of moving on our own, I’ve harbored so many doubts raising you by myself. I’ve always admired those who live so enthusiastically with an absent parent. I thought my heart was too fragile being laced with so much uncertainty, and there I was welcoming impending isolation. I was so carelessly fooled by empty promises, I embraced onto a painful truth and so much anger. Every day you are my reminder of all the beautiful things there are in the world, and that I never walk alone. Your smile heals every tarnished scar lining my skin. Your laugh washes away every little bitterness I hold onto. Your voice soothes all my woes and dries all my tears.
Thank you my sweet Sky for molding me into to woman I am today. With you I have loved so fearlessly. Through all we’ve endured and lost together, we’ll conquer countries and sorrow. There is no more room for misfortune and misery in this home. Only euphoria and love is welcome in our castle we’ve built with our eager hands.
You and I forever, and always.
Life has thrown me in thousands of directions over the past year, I really wish I would of kept blogging. I plan on getting back at it for the sake of sky. All is well on my end and I hope only the same for you. Thank you so much, & for reminding me of that, feel like that was decades ago :)
Lots of love to you xo
Don’t let someone steal your tenderness. Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to be truly affected by things.
Just came to the realization I have not posted a picture of myself in forever. Braces are gone, my hair has grown to my butt, down to 111 lbs and always working.
New oversized nebula bows available in the shop!
it is a cruel gesture to
enter someone’s life and
allow yourself to mean
the entire world to them
when you are still
figuring out who you are.
do not promise someone
a vast ocean when
you are unsure that
your waves are confident enough
to reach the shoreline.
