WRITING & WORDS :: I’d like to rest my heavy head tonight / On a bed of California stars

Having a snack at sea world in May 2012

I’m tired. I’d like to rest my heavy head tonight on a bed of California stars. But around here, lately, when we’re awake and not falling asleep standing up, we’ve been…

…taking advantage of our Sea World passes.

I’ve also been…

…blogging for Babiekins.
Summer Style: 6 Must-Have Items for Boys

Spring and High Summer: Noa Noa
Get the Look: When Stella was Very Very Small

…fetching food from grocery stores, getting said food home amidst the rainy season downpours whilst attempting to maintain the toddler’s sanity as well as my own.

…somehow managing to cook food into edible, if not somewhat burnt, things. (Rinse and repeat.)

…running around in the sweltering humidity to take photos of Aveline (think of it as hot yoga + aerobics). She is a Mini Socialite at Mudpies & Fairytales this week!

…celebrating the launch of Missile Monkey, an iOS game/app designed and produced by Josiah and his dad (the excitement around here has been crazy! This is the culmination of more than a year and half’s worth of work! If you’ve already downloaded it, we’d love it if you’d rate it as well.)

…scheduling posts for Summer Vacation Tour, the virtual travel series which will launch here later this month. Paris, London & more!

…fixing a bridesmaid dress fiasco, in which a dress ordered months upon months ago never arrived.

…serving as a loungy-type piece of furniture for a certain small person. (You can find the sewing tutorial for her toddler harem shorts here.)

…not sleeping, courtesy of the same certain small person.

…rewashing clean laundry, again due to the same small person.

…supervising the multiple baths needed per day to keep small person acceptably tidy.

Now, if you’ll pardon me as I fall asleep to this beautiful song (a Wilco cover of a Willie Nelson number).
