ethan turned 1 last week. ONE. whenever possible i refuse to dress him in anything other then onesies (and shoes of course, he is after all running around everywhere now). my sister and her husband some how don't seem to mind. he is starting to say a few more things. as of last friday night when they arrived at our house late i hadnt really heard more then 'mumummummumm' and 'daaaaaa' i was thrilled to hear him repeat after my sister 'ahhh cchhaa cha chaaa.' he just said it. like he was asking for a raspberry muffin. i guess he started saying if a couple of weeks ago and now giggles afterwards.
i have extremely recently been heavily exposed to the-almost-entire 'buying' a house process. i never would have imagined that there could be so much stress, frustration, lack of consideration and caring and PAPERWORK - especially when the owners are a holding company-no feelings involved.
so clearly i didn't buy it, lets face it, i dont read paper work. i am constantly asking my sisters to only send books on dvd.
my boyfriend is finally the pleased owner of an amazing townhouse. this four floor gem is tucked in a beautiful area a bit out of philly. filled with all the things (but lakes) that someone from new england would ache for when away as long as he has been. flowering fruit trees, lush deep woods and a blue starry sky above, almost perfect.
thank you mr and ms e_____ for leaving your high end curtain rods and finials. :)
i am thrilled to say that i sent out 129 flower today (yesterday). 1 for a brides fascinator, 1 for a ring pillow, 5 for a different brides gown, and 122 black and white flowers as favors for a july wedding in long island ny.
i made 9 more flowers tonight for a woman who plans to add them to her Vera Wang wedding gown. ill take it as a tiny sign that i might just being drifting down a path i would be happy to follow.
'hushabye and goodnight...'
