    "Kids are super easy. It’s being an adult that’s hard." @girlshbo @lenadunham This was taken one year ago. It's hard to believe that she was so little. At 2.5 months old, I felt like I had already known her for years. Yet, I still had no idea what I was doing. I was a new mother, and I felt completely on my own. I told myself to take it day by day, and so I did. Somehow, she and I made it through and although she's still so young, our bond today is so unbelievably strong. 
If it's not yet apparent, I'm in an extraordinarily sentimental mood. This morning I found a notebook that I had purchased when @omgkersh and I were seriously considering adoption. I was planning on detailing our journey for our future child. Looking at the date of the receipt, it read 02/25/15. Little did I know that exactly one year later, my daughter would be born on 02/25/16. 
I truly believe that we are constantly being shown signs, we just don't always pay attention. I view what happened today as a reminder to stay strong during times of uncertainty. Things usually work out for the better. I just need to have faith.

little green does hallowe’en.

IMG_1.jpg

dear readers,

i realize that it is only october 2nd, and that most of you are already getting tired of hallowe’en posts. well guess what? here comes another one!

IMG_2-3 IMG_5-6

first of all, we grew two pumpkins! with all of the rain that came over the summer, and because our garden is mostly in the shade, i did not expect anything except rhubarb to grow. how wrong i was! mother nature sure surprised us this season. (actually, i think that pumpkins flourish in the shade. am i wrong?) regardless, it was a happy surprise. :-)

with hallowe’en comes our trusty fall wreath and two little wire pumpkins. like little green, they are small and somewhat bare, but i consider my style to be a whimsical minimalist. thus, i am very happy with these items.

truman started playing with the broom and rather than deleting these photos, i thought that they were somewhat reminiscent of a witch and her broom. that is why i have included them here for you. :-)

i could not forget about what we have laying around the house! i love this holiday so much that i regularly collect hallowe’en items and keep them on display all year round. call me crazy.

really, how could you not like seeing little green all decked out in festive wear? it’s like an outfit post, but for a house. maybe i should do more of these. ;-)))

p.s. if you have already made a hallowe’en post on your blog, please leave a link to it in the “hello comments” field below. i would love to see your creations!

  1. Wonderful Halloween outfit for little green! It’s fit’s the occation perfectly (only St.Patricks day would have been a better match =) … Truman is also so cute! I’m so jealous..I badly want to have a pet but think it would be cruel to leave him alone in this little flat the the whole days… Long-term plan! Hugs Bella

    • yes, canada in the fall really is very pretty. while little green still needs much cosmetic work, the area that we live in is the oldest in the city. old = character = beauty.
