i made a few small changes around here. the ABOUT page is now up to date. i hadn't changed it since i was pregnant and sylvie is almost 4 months old. there's no excuse for that! i also added a page with weekly and monthly picture updates of the girl. i've been meaning to do that for a while now.
posts may be slightly infrequent this week, but i will do my best to keep up. i'm super busy with commissions, which makes me happier than you could ever know. my cousin is getting married in chicago this weekend, which also means i have to get the three of us packed for a few days away. on top of that, travis has his big painting critique on friday morning. he practically lived in his studio all weekend!
i'm ready for you, winter break!
tonight is the first night of chanukah. travis looked and looked, but couldn't find our menorah. no worries.
thank you, free menorah app! sylvie's first night of her first chanukah went off without a hitch. we "lit" the menorah, said the prayers, and ate delicious butternut squash soup.
we're having latkes with all the fixings next week, once our cleanse is done.
today was a good day. simple as that. sylvie and i hung out this morning while travis painted. we watched muppet videos, sang songs, and read a few books. travis watched her this evening while i got my hair trimmed and ran a few errands (like buying candles for the menorah we couldn't find). we're getting ready for a lazy night in. i'm going to work on illustration stuff while we watch modern family. winter hit southern indiana today and i don't want to go anywhere! it snowed last night and was FREEZING all day. i can't wait to move to texas this summer, which i don't think i've mentioned here yet. WE'RE MOVING TO TEXAS THIS SUMMER! i'm so excited to raise sylvie around some family. my brother and his family live down there, as do a busload of travis' aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents. we're already counting down the days until june!
stay warm and have a pleasant wednesday!
