Every Day I Love You
For the good first 6 months of Kins' life, I felt guilty if I were not spending every waking second of my time with her. If she were not being held by me, laughing hysterically, playing with her toys, or learning in some capacity, I felt I was not doing my duty as a mother. I have realized very recently that doing "my own thing" every now and then is really okay and actually very healthy. Kins is learning to be more independent while playing on her play may by herself, self discovery just might be her most important lesson - and I get to take hold of my sanity. Just 10 minutes a day is all I need, which is why I am so excited about this "blogging thing." 10 minutes of "breath, blog, glass of wine", and done. Ready to go again strong with my ever so rambunctious little one.
I love chalkboards. I love the idea of beginning something and being able to erase whenever you feel justified. I would love to give Kins a giant wall of black to draw on.
Below, I am loving these two color combinations. Sea foam green and vibrant yellow and magenta with sea foam green. If anyone can tell me where to find these curtains, I will forever owe you. I love them.
I find beauty in the details, even down to a spice rack. And although there is nothing particularly special about this rack, everything seems well placed and homey. Same with the shelving. Wacky but absolutely beautiful. Because of those shelves, everything has a home.
And who wouldn't love this child's room. He/she seems to have everything in it. What a fantasy. Very eclectic and sheik at the same time.
