Why are even toddler breakfasts so cute? Get a load of that pinky!
A few things...this is the LAST Friday you'll ever see my blog looking this way. Next week my new design will be up and running and I'm so, so excited for the much-needed change.
I also wanted to ask you all if there is anything about Sometimes Sweet (blog design/navigation related ONLY please, haha) that you have had issues with. Please let me know so I can pass that along to my talented designer who you will learn more about next week too.
This upcoming weekend is jam packed with goodness and friends. I hope yours is the same! Tonight I am headed down to Phoenix for the evening to see The Gaslight Anthem play and I'm beyond excited. So think of me this evening as I'm singing along to my favorite songs! I'm counting down the minutes.
Here are some links to start off your weekend! xoxo
----------First things first, my wonderful blogging pal Emily launched a brand new, awesome (understatement of the YEAR) website along with two of her talented friends. Say hello to Small Fry. I promise you, you'll love it. And please report back here after checking it out and let me know, just so I can say I told you so! ;) But really, read this blurb from their first post and tell me you don't adore this:
"Small Fry is a declaration to ourselves and to our boys that every moment with them is a gift and also a choice. A choice to let the magic of childhood find us, and to look for it in everything we do. That the world is ours and there is adventure around every corner. To make the daily decision to look past the things we did not check off the list, but focus on the simple things we can do to illuminate our lives. To let the hard moments, minutes, phases, heartaches come when they may, but not break our stride or our desire to live vibrantly.
We’ve been told this season of our lives is fleeting. What if we could say that we soaked it all in, let it envelope us, looked into those big beautiful eyes of our children every morning and said 'let me show you something amazing today.'
Welcome to Small Fry."
And in other news, say hello to these super healthy raspberry peach pancakes. YUM.
Still Jux-ing...still in love with it. Have you made one yet?
Be sure to check out Melanie's amazing print sale going on. I'm obsessed with her art and I know you will be too!
