I love sitting at my desk at the beginning of a new week. Answering email. Making notes about possible blog content. It feels especially good after a holiday weekend. I like getting back into a familiar rhythm. And I like knowing there isn’t another major holiday/event at our house until this baby’s arrival. How about you? How was your weekend? Too short or too long? Anything particularly lovely happen?

My favorite part was dyeing eggs. It happened on Saturday afternoon. We did 3 dozen eggs total, but I reserved a dozen just for me. Because that’s how Design Mom rolls. I tried mixing dye baths in glass containers using NotMartha’s dye recipe for the first time (usually, we use plastic or metal bowls) and I was in love with how they looked. Gorgeous, right?
