Maude has her first guitar recital on Saturday. She’s playing Taylor Swift’s You Belong With Me. (Of course she is. She’s 11. When I was 11, my favorite song was We Built This City. Do you remember what yours was?) Maude has been working really hard on her piece and I think she’s going to have fun rocking it out in her first performance. I want to get this Jam Session print for Maude’s room — or maybe for our family room. It’s by Emily Dumas and is sold at The Working Proof. Every print at The Working Proof is attached to a good cause. Isn’t that cool?
While I reminisce about 6th grade music choices, here are a few things I’ve been wanting to share with you:
-Let’s make cool string light fixtures!
-I love this essay on what it’s like to raise children in Las Vegas. Thanks, Kristen.
-What a fun baby announcement.
-A hilarious contract about packing lunches.
-Could you go a week without wearing denim?
-Instead of a hotel, you could stay in a Swedish Forest Hut.
-Do you ever feel like this photo?
-Alexa Chung for Madewell. Dreamy.
-Turquoise and red.
-A neat clock.
-I want a Paul & Jordan cake painting.
I write a daily post for Babble’s Family Style blog. Here are this week’s posts:
-I have a love/hate relationship with my duvet.
-Super cute (and easy to clean!) kid-size aprons.
-Coolest baby/toddler snowboots in the world.
