I am taking the month of August off from blogging. I have found it really challenging, and at times draining, to keep up with posts while also being a full time mom to three year olds. While I have had moments to myself, I am looking forward to parent's day out starting back up so I have blocked hours twice a week to get all my busy work in. Until that glorious day comes, I want to continue living out this summer with my goal of setting intentions forefront in my mind and I think taking a long break will do just that. I will be working behind the scenes and the shop will stay open so that come September 1st this blog will be full of inspiration and work that meets my criteria again.
So have a great rest of the summer! I have a few videos lined up for my YouTube channel and you can follow me on instagram if you want to know what we are up in our every day lives. As always, thanks for reading, and see you soon!

We went on a fun trip to Colorado.
I shared how we are incorporating Montessori into our daily life.
I started comparing kit clubs (look for another video tomorrow!)
We painted hungry caterpillars.
I made and highly enjoyed a blackberry mint julep.
And elsewhere on the internet, here are some things that caught my eye
This drawstring bag tutorial looks like a cute way to use up random scraps of fabric.
I love this new site Indie Sew and their tutorials are always helpful. Keeping this one on how to bind a knit neckline for future reference.
The picture alone is worth getting Dafoe and Baryshnikov together.
This post by the Bloggess made me not feel so sad about the women against feminism hashtag.
Just for fun, great moments in Dystopian Knitwear.
An interesting article about the true price of fast fashion.
My friend Maryam made a toddler kimono and it's fantastic.
Seinfeld emojis. No other words needed.
Someone followed Solange around for four days and it just made me love her more.
Some resources to ways you can provide help to the children on the border.
And finally, Sunday afternoon I saw the movie Boyhood and it was amazing. Just brilliant and wonderful. My friend sent me this article about it and you should read it and then go buy your tickets immediately!

Three year olds don't really have any sense of time, and nor should they, but they are beginning to understand the concept of time and I thought a calendar would be a great way to help them grasp the different days of the week.
