“We were together. I forget the rest.”
Hello friends…if any of you are still out there… (please still be out there!). I can chalk my absence up to two things: a new job and some technical difficulties. The technical difficulty was embarrassingly easy to fix, while the job has required a bit more finessing. First, let me say, it’s an incredible job. I am a teacher of eighteen 4 and 5 year -olds at a new, gorgeous Reggio Emilia preschool. We have vegetable gardens planted by the littles, art hanging on all surfaces, organic food cooked for us everyday, and we are housed in an old Episcopal church that is all red brick and cozy little nooks. Most importantly, it is an incredibly progressive, aware school that treats it’s teachers the way all teachers should be. I am very lucky, and very excited. That said, it requires more work than I have done in a long, long time. Add to that my considerable commute, and well… let’s just say it’s no wonder it took me so long to hammer out my little technical difficulty. If you’ll forgive my shameful photo taking skills, I would love to share a pic of our beautiful classroom… deal?
Pretty sweet, isn’t it? And so calm without all my little Huckleberries :) And speaking of the small ones, I came across this a few weeks ago. I can’t get it out of my head, which is a good thing; I try to remember it every day at work. (FYI, Peggy O’Mara is the Editor of Mothering Magazine, which is based out of Santa Fe, NM, my hometown! Fun fact ;) Oh, AND, Jora has a lovely post today about her son returning to school… go see for yourself!
So now that THAT”S out of the way, let’s indulge in some good ‘ol ‘Things I’m Loving’, shall we?
French 75 popsicles… something to make in the last gasps of Summer… though we might have already passed those.
The perfect Fall outfit. Elbow patches, especially.
Love, love, love these two clutches. And proof that the details always make it… that little rectangular bead!
And the monogram on this CV! (methinks a great gift for a new bride, complete with new initials ;)
Thakoon S/S 2013. Perfect colors, stripes and layers. Yummy.
I love all the different materials and textures used in this kitchen, but mostly the subway tile that goes all the way up to the ceiling. Amazing.
