Hello! How are you? Happy January! It's been quiet around here. I'm relieved, and I might even say thrilled. The house is disheveled and so am I. I had a birthday last week. It was lovely. We went swimming over the weekend at an indoor water park and it was awesome. We were there for three hours and Amelia didn't want to leave (and that's a first — usually she's ready to go and they have to drag me out). It felt like a little mini vacation. At night I've been crocheting a little bunny guy. It's time to get back into a regular routine (apparently) but I'm gonna try to hibernate for as long as possible. I'm just not ready to get up and at 'em yet, you know? New books, hot baths, and plenty of yarn. Thumbs up, January.

***The bunny is a pattern I am working on. I'll let you know when he's done. :)



Happy Birthday, Alicia! Your cake is a stunner as always. Love the flower selections too! Happy January from a fellow hibernator.

Happy Birthday to you! I hope you had a lovely day!

Happy Birthday!
I agree. I could hibernate for 2 straight months and be perfectly happy.
That work thing gets in the way, but I do love the slower pace of these
winter days.

HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ALICIA! So many sentiments already shared, that I wholeheartedly agree with! I come to your blog to be inspired, to relax, to smile at your soothing life, calm colors, rich photographs... and your girl! What a special world she lives in. You are so, so talented, in so many ways! Enjoy your new year of life!

Happy belated birthday and happy year ahead. xx Disheveled is a superb word. It suggests a wonderful air of abandon and dilettante-ness; a great way to start the year.

happy (belated ) birthday wishes Alicia

Hope you and yours are okay. It's been a while between posts.

I've been checking your blog and instagram lately, nothing new. Everything ok? I hope you are taking a vacation disconnected from the internet =)

Happy Birthday! Your cake is a masterpiece (recipe please)? Beautiful photography as usual. And I might need the bunny pattern --haha, love it.
