Lovely Lilacs

Where have we been?  Man, time flies. I owe you a lengthy post with a lot of updates! So much has been happening, more than I could probably remember to fit into a single post. I guess that means I'll have to post more frequently! I know we keep saying it -- pretty soon we'll start living it. Here's a glimpse at what has been taking up most of my time these days photo(10) Bet you thought you were going to see a baby in that picture huh?  Ok, here's one for ya! image_1 photoimage That was more than one...oops. I could go on for days. Brooklyn is doing really great. She is still such a great baby and tolerates her mother very well! We have been very busy between moving into a new house and working, but "Brookie" just goes along for the ride with very few complaints.  We are so lucky and very much in love. I am doing some of my working hours from home (our new home) and I love it.  Last week while sitting in my new office letting the warm breeze come through the window, I caught a whiff of these beauties. photo(9) Turns out I have a lovely lilac bush right outside my office window.  And speaking of Lilacs...I was asked to test knit a beautiful bonnet called Lilacs.  The pattern comes from Knitted Bliss (a favorite of ours) and will be released soon.  See the original Lilacs here. 192A0043 192A0027 Brooklyn_lilacs Brooklyn knew she looked pretty cute in it, maybe because I told her so about 50 times while taking these pictures. Once it's released, download it. Make it. It's a quick, easy, enjoyable knit and makes a great gift!

Love the hat, but Brooklyn is by far the cuter of the two! She is such a honey!! And yes, being her grandma makes me happy!
