I’ve been trying so hard to stay away from posting anything political since the election, but man did this week make that tough. Pulling out of the Paris Climate Deal is a disgusting, short sighted act that disturbed me to my core. Yesterday I was watching the live stream with bated breath to see what Trump would do. The fact that he actually pulled out left me speechless and, frankly, heartbroken (a word I’ve used more in relation to this political year than ever before). I can only hope that companies, states, and individuals step up to do their part to protect this beautiful planet in the coming years.
In more upbeat news, we finally got some sunshine in Connecticut this week, and I pulled out my lemon Jack Rogers which made me so happy. These shoes were made for me! I probably won’t take them off much this summer, just a warning.
We also finished up and took photos of our nursery which I look forward to sharing with you soon. It’s now my favorite room in the house by a long shot. It has the best energy and is so bright and airy. My photographer loved it so much that she spent an hour taking photos because she didn’t want to stop!
I spent some time updating my shop page with a June wish list, an updated “maternity picks” section, baby girl outfits, and more.
This weekend, we’re planning to take take it pretty easy, see some friends, and work on our backyard garden. Thrilling, I know!
