Good Morning

comments: 158













Sunshine! Eeeeeeeeeeeeee! It's the sun!!! That's exciting. I think we will go for a walk this morning. Things are blooming out there and we are missing them. I think we need to get out there and see some spring, stat!

Thank you for all of your incredibly nice and always generous and always gentle comments this week, and always, always. It's been a really busy and really tiring and really good week! All of the bunny kits will be at the post office by tomorrow, and I just couldn't be happier with how everything went (aside from the selling-out-too-fast part, which gave me a stomach ache). I'm really proud of this kit and the work we did on it, and I owe a HUGE and enormous thank you to Greta for everything that she did to make this happen right now. She is just utterly awesome, and keeps things running around here in an incredibly smooth yet seemingly effortless way. I am just beyond lucky and am so grateful for her. Thank you, dear G.

We will keep you posted on when another batch of bunny kits will be available, and again, I really am sorry that it won't be before Easter.

Andy's parents get into town tomorrow night for the weekend and if this sunshine holds . . . oh, wouldn't that be great! I had this memory the other night of what it's like to have the windows open at night. Remember that? How good it is to breathe fresh air? Spring. Spring in the woods. Spring in the yard. Spring in the garden. Spring in the park. Spring in the Gorge. Spring at the tulip farm. Spring is coming. I really, really cannot wait!

This baby girl. My sweet sunshine. I can hardly wait for her to wake up every morning. Dearest, sweetest, funniest, nicest, happiest, most lovely, adorable, wonderful, dearest dearest creature in all the world. Oh my stars. I adore her so. Still just . . . wow . . . I don't know.


I wish you a really great weekend in every way! Xoxoxoxo


Spring on your dining table!
I noticed your daffodils.
I just brought some home, too.
Amelia is blooming! What a sweet blossom.
Enjoy the light!

I adore Amelia's wardrobe...I want clothes just like hers! LOL...How wonderful that you share your joy with all of us...Thank You!

So nice to see Each Peach Pear Plum on the table. It's one of my favourite baby books.

Those cheeks! That hair! Miss A grows more beautiful by the day!

I spy Tom Thumb! We love that book around here too :) And Amelia is sooooooo adorable!

Oh my, Amelia is growing fast, isn't she?

She's so pretty and expressive and so clearly checking out what's going on in front of her. Lovely photos which capture it all.

Take care and enjoy your weekend,

Amelia is ready for sunshine, spring and bunnies...and mouses.

We love her too! Imagine:)

I'm glad to follow your blogg, sweetest baby ever... looking forward to every new picture from you. Even your house pic are so nice and different from our houses here i Sweden.

Oh sun! Spring really is pure magic, I hope you have a great walk and a beautiful weekend.

I spy Tom Thumb! Hope your weekend is amazing!

Oh my word...the dearest little legs ever!!!! Your joy is so infectious, thank you so much for sharing all of your happiness with us still. You could just have gone to ground and hidden away with Amelia and Andy, and to be fair we'd all have understood, but you have been so generous with yourself...thank you xxx

Good morning beautiful! Wishing you a sunny and happy visit.

Love the PJs in the last pic! We've got a baby girl due in about 2 months and I've been clothes shopping this week.

Your daughter is growing up so lovely. Glad to see Bee today. I took almost identical photo of my cat Tinka yesterday. Great minds think alike.
Yay for the sun. Hope you girls enjoy your walk today.

My baby girl is 19 years old and I still feel exactly what you wrote about Amelia. I love my husband but she is the grand love affair of my life.

sunshine in seattle too -
happy day!

Just checking in to see your little sweet pea. Give that precious little girl a big hug from Bentley and me!! Love to your family.
Susan and Bentley

The news from Casa Paulson is always, always a day brightener for me even when skies are grey!

We are expecting freezing rain, ice, and snow this week end.... Your glimpses of spring reassure us that spring is in fact just around the corner!

(Have you read... "Love You Forever" by Robert Munsch yet? It's a must read for any Sweet Husband has read it aloud to each of our children's first grade classes. It's a grab your heart and hold on tight story...that you really can't get until you gaze upon your own child's face and know in is possible to love deeper than you ever imagined possible!)

Man that girl has some style!

OMGosh!!! Can there be any cuter little bitty stockings hanging off little bitty feet?! Have a wonderful weekend enjoying the nice weather. :)

I can't imagine why you adore your baby girl, she is absolutely beautiful!!

we had sun on Tuesday. It made such a pleasant change, even though I am a confirmed cold weather girl.

raining again now though, well, it IS England!

Ah that little girl of yours is truly scrumptious.

I love your blog - have never left a comment before. But I had to this go 'round because
I read your last post 3x! It was a heartwarming tale for me. I'm 59, have Multiple Sclerosis, I craft (knit mostly), and don't have children. I continue - like everyone who reads your posts - to 'benefit' from your philosophizing! Aside from the fact that the
projects are so lovely and your sense of style a true inspiration, and Amelia is just a joy
to have a glimpse of! I am sad often with the crazy state of the world, climate change and the often horrible way people treat one another. Your little world is a spark of hope and sweetness; that goodness is not only possible - but happens!
