Last week we finally had the nursery painted and wallpapered, and over the weekend we (ok, Anel) put together the crib which felt like a huge milestone! Things started to feel very real once there was a crib in the baby's room, so I thought it was finally time for an update.
I don't want to share every detail about the space because I want this room reveal to be epic, but I thought I'd give you a little sneak peek of the direction in which we're heading.
Perhaps for the first time in the history of the universe, we experienced a warm Easter Sunday in Connecticut. It was glorious! I was able to wear a dress without shivering, and we had the windows open with sun streaming in while we sipped on homemade lemon granitas (it was 80 degrees), and even sat on our back patio for a few hours.
I had a tough week emotionally although I'm not 100% sure why. A lot of things contributed to my cloudy mood, and I'm sure hormones played a big roll too. I felt unmotivated, uninspired, and anxious despite the sunshine. Instead of wallowing in these feelings, I did a few things to get myself out of the rut quickly.
Happy hump day! And it's made even happier by the fact that Shopbop is having their huge spring sale right now. What's the deal? Get 20% off all orders, and 25% off orders of $500 or more with code EVENT17. Pretty great deal! And with summer around the corner, I'm sure there is a lot on your wish lists...
I recently bought a gluten-free scone mix and was so excited to be able to eat one of my favorite pastries again. The mix I love is from King Arthur Flour which is located in Vermont, near my dad's house in New Hampshire. Since I can't always get up there to buy more, I thought I'd try creating my own gluten free scones without a mix.
