Buying Virtue, Getting "Sexy" Back, and Cottage Industry

We went to the nursery and bought santolina. Santolina signifies virtue and we need lots of that along our path to the front door. We also planted more lavender for good luck.
Yoga for Energy is my early morning best friend. One second you're going from on-top-of-the-world exalted warrior to humble and submissive child's pose (and back again) which makes you feel like everything is going to be okay. And rolling with the highs and lows of life... that's super sexy, eso es el plano.
The result of a two day sew-a-thon: seven baby dresses for TamTam's soon-to-be-born baby girl! The dresses look much cuter in real life than in these pics and will look WAAAAY more adorable with the baby wearing them. Can't wait!
besos!

Bravo! three cheers for your sew-a-thon, looks like you and tam tam had a great time -- one lucky little niece-to-be- is getting born into a great wardrobe.

I love these so much. Did you know that I have sometimes fantasized about what I would sew for your babies if you ever had babies? Maybe because it seems like in your case there would be the possibility of some more interesting designs of which you might be an appreciator. Disclaimer: if your hypothetical babies were ever to become a reality, you should know that I mostly only fantasize about sewing these days. I made a few things in my head for Xan and Zina too.
