Maisie turns 3.

Our sweet, smart girl - last week you turned three. Just yesterday you were surprising us with your fast, early delivery, it seems. And yet here you are! All bookishness and frills. You are pink incarnate. A lover of words. Shy and fiesty and discerning and brave. You are your father's daughter, so much reason and introversion. And we love you so. More than you know. 


Beginnings of spring.

Spring coming alive in Guilford, and our move right around the corner. Hugo has started baseball and we've been taking bike rides around town as often as we're able, stopping in awe of the blossoms. Feels like we're nearing the end of a very long winter.


Moving: the beginning.

 From the moving process: the matching of socks (a marker of personality difference between me and Blake), the choosing of countertop stone, the filling of a dumpster. Small things to ring in a new season.


Easter 2021.

 from our Easter celebrations: three egg hunts and unreasonable amounts of sugar and living room church and bunny pancakes and more family time (!!) than last year. one really lovely day.
