the bliss project - one

>> Thursday, December 10, 2009

maybe it's the freshly fallen snow. maybe it's the sunshine. maybe it's the fact that i got 3 1/2 hours of sleep in a row. i've decided to start a "happiness project" - a random image from my everyday life that means happiness to me.

so here's today's. the mini, in my relatively clean living room, with our itty bitty christmas tree, and the sun shining through the snowflakes outside.

pure bliss.

thoughts on the mommy track

>> Wednesday, December 9, 2009


i always thought that i'd be one of those mothers who would be chomping at the bit to return to their job outside the home. i even told my boss that i'd probably be back early. well, i've surprised everyone - most of all, myself - at how i love being at home with the mini. even though being a stay at home mom is one of the hardest "jobs" i've ever had - and believe me, i've had LOTS - it definitely is the most rewarding. they should PAY moms to stay home and raise their babies!
the husband and i have been through a lot to get to where we are now - about 20 different apartments, career changes, a move cross-country and back, several vehicles, medical conditions, a separation, buying a house, and more credit card debt than i would have liked. however, it is all worth it when i look around at our crooked little house, full of things collected on our journey (and tons of baby stuff!) and the sweet little face of my mini!!!
my boss emailed me yesterday and asked when i'm thinking about returning to work. it made me really sad to give her a date - it's not that i haven't been thinking about it (and sometimes really missing my job!), but i really wished that i could have told her that i wouldn't be coming back at all.

i heart niminami!

as you remember, structuredchaos hosted a promotional swap on her blog and my second swap partner was the fabulous niminami!
she says that she is a simple girl who has a love for illustrating! currently a fastion design student in jakarta, she finds inspiration in fashion and nature. wanting to share her art with everyone, she started her etsy shop, which is full of her whimsical original illustrations!
niminami sent me a lovely little handmade notebook decorated with one of her beautiful fashion illustrations. her business card is also adorned with one of her drawings - just gorgeous!
she says that she really enjoys the process of creating, and the feeling of owning her own business. hoping to do this in the future as her full time job, i wish her all the best!
