while in north dakota for the holidays, eva had her first experience with snow. she liked it just fine until we decided it would be cute if she made a little tiny snow angel. apparently she likes the snow to be a minimum of 18 inches away from her. (it's not that she was terribly upset, she just gave us one of those looks that says "seriously? you really think i'm enjoying this?") sometimes these things are more entertaining for the grown ups.
this morning eva laughed with this beautiful, lilting giggle i've never heard before. the sound of pure, unqualified joy. add that to my ever-growing list of things i love about being a mama.
I'm a life-long amateur crafter who can't quite seem to focus. You can find me decorating a cake, crocheting, quilting, sewing, embroidering, dying eggs, or generally just making stuff into other more interesting stuff. I love applying traditional techniques in new ways (with apologies to my grandmother).
