Monday Blues // 41

July 1, 2013

Happy Monday! We're coming off an amazing baby shower high with friends and family over the weekend. I must say it again -- my cup seriously runneth over. I'd been feeling like preparing for this wee one was a bit like planning a wedding. (I may or may not tend to put a lot of pressure on myself when it comes to - oh - everything.) But I have to say that now I just feel so so grateful not only to have a healthy babe on the way, but such an incredible extended family to introduce him or her to! Even though we still have many things to do and figure out, I just feel this overwhelming sense of calm. Finally. It's wonderful.

I'm sure a week or two out, I'll be a complete wreck all over again. 

I digress.

Gaby just posted this space last week, but it was so good that I couldn't help but use it for today's Monday Blues. Smitten with the brightness, the pattern play and that grounding black of the chair.


 Hope you are all in for a fabulous week ahead!

I'm so behind on all of my magazine reading. I love this space and wish I had seen it when I blogged about using lattice on walls a few weeks ago.

That is so fun Tobe, congrats on the baby shower and your feeling of serenity. I am so happy for you. This is such a special time and those hormones I know are all over the map. Just take good care of yourself and surround yourself with positive energy.
