A Cute and Festive (But Not-Too-Girly) Baby Shower

This weekend we hosted a cute and festive (but not-too–girly) baby shower for some dear friends that are expecting a baby girl in July. (Obviously she will be Ford’s future girlfriend. Duh.)

I’m 39 weeks pregnant today – which… Read more »

Baby Bumpin’

So in addition to all the art and design that fills my days, I’ve also been busy growing a baby.

I’m 28 weeks pregnant today (that’s a little over 6 months)… Read more »
