Hello Again!

Well, apparently I subconsciously decided to take a year off from my site. Sorry for the hiatus. It has been a very crazy but happy year.

On October 8, 2014, my husband and I welcomed our baby boy Jack to the world. For those of you who need stats, he was born at 6:38 am, weighed 6 lbs 13 oz, and was 20 inches in length.


Since his arrival, I have been lucky enough to enjoy being a stay at home mom. We spent the winter hibernating, cuddling together with blankets in my rocking chair, and generally just getting to know each other. Spring consisted of building and planting my raised vegetable garden and Jack’s realization that tummy time is not actually evil and can be quite fun once you learn how to roll over. Summer was all about crawling around, learning how to interact with everything, taking walks together, and (on those sweltering hot days) staying indoors with the ac on while baby wiggles around in only a diaper. Fall is now here. We continue going on walks, but our big project is Jack’s first birthday party! Our little man is growing so fast!

Throughout this year, my craftiness has not abated. I will share with you all some of the things that I have been working on. One new thing for me is the Etsy shop that I have opened. If you have seen some of my paintings on previous posts, I am now selling prints, so feel free to check it out here: ArtsyAro.

And of course, I cannot end this post without sharing a picture of my little big boy Jack!11753700_10102532020272929_8311412558419177986_n
