Days with My Dapper Boys

posted on: Tuesday, June 19, 2012

Man, the past two weeks have been really full. Full of goodness and lots of plans for celebrations. Samuel and I have been in full gear of preparing our house for 2 boys. We bought another crib, cleared out our guest room/office to transform it into a play room and made space for Sam's workspace in our room. (Can you say amazing desk that I LOVE from Ikea?!) I know I've said it before, and will say it until the new little mini is here, but I'm trying to soak up every minute with Kael - extra book readings, play days and silly crazy moments. Today, we spent the whole day at the pool. We splashed, made "soup" with lots of buckets and soaked up the sun together with friends. I finished the afternoon with a spontaneous drop by at my mom and dad's, which turned into a coffee and cupcake date. Life is so much more enjoyable when I relax, stop juggling everything and everyone and truly living presently in the moment. Here's to more simple, happy, summer days.
One of my besties Kristina sent this sweet dapper hat to Kael for his first birthday and it has been re-discovered with lots of smiles. <3

Elmo slippers, 4T rock t-shirt, hat...everyday perfection ;) 

Sam, myself and our amazing friends, Kate and Jason, spent the day in Asheville last week. The boys had some filming to do and we had some eating and shopping to knock out. ;) Kate is expecting her first little sweet boy this mid-September!  We are bumpies together!!! She is so lovely. 
Kael hoop dancing with some cool hippies in downtown Asheville. My heart was pretty much bursting and they were the sweetest; totally encouraging him to join them. <3
 I found a pretty awesome beat up copper bell at a little shop in Asheville for $ fav necklace. ;)  (Plus some pretty sweet Mala beads from Tiny Devotions.

Took my guy out for Father's day breakfast. 

Spent the rest of the day with my amazing folks for Father's dad is pretty much the bomb. 
Playing with daddy. (Sam is the most amazing guy. Best dad, friend and everything else. It's so fun learning how to be a parent,  grown up and better artist alongside of him. ;) 
Sketched and designed a tattoo for a girlfriend. (She wanted 3 arrows for her 3 boys)
Helping daddy put together our amazing new desk! (Ah! We are having SOOOO much fun nesting and really putting time and purposed energy into making our house more personally ours.) 

From our pool day today...
(Gran, did you enjoy all of these pictures!? I'm going to be sending you lots of copies of them, so get ready!)
