Behind the Scenes || No. 06

We are having so much fun enjoying everything this season has to offer. We love visiting the pumpkin playground at our beloved farm stand and had so much fun on Blake's school field trip.

Our BIG art shows are complete! We worked our butts off...seriously...but it paid off and we enjoyed a successful couple of days. My very talented friend, Catherine, stopped by early for Crafty Bastards to hand-letter some signage (and model our strong necklace!) for me - such a lovely final touch to our awesome booth. Selling was certainly fun - we love talking about our products and meeting customers but the highlight really was meeting and connecting with the other vendors including Erin for AwlSnap, Katie from A Childhood List, Melanie from Grey Moggie, and Sara from Girls Can Tell & Occasionette. And we loved seeing our products in print - thanks to Washington City Paper for the features!

SO, I got a Madsen Cycle. It was actually pre-ordered a long time ago so you can imagine my excitement when it finally arrived. The bike was a gift to myself when I made the big decision to stay at home with the girls. It deserves its own journal entry so I will write more later but I will say this, the bike was worth every penny!

Parker turned two years old! How did this happen? We celebrated with family, ice cream cake, and an inaugural ride on the big girl swing. We also got to meet our new nephew and baby cousin. Obviously, we are all smitten.
