What my baby baby gets

Hey, y'all.  Nope, I'm not dead.  Nope, I didn't give up on Gimlet.  I just pray that y'all didn't give up on me. I swear I am trying.  I just have this tiny distraction that lives with me AND am starting a new job very soon.  Yay!  So...poor beloved Gimlet has suffered.  I know.  I hope I am not talking to cyberspace alone. 

Anyway....Happy Mother's Day!  I got the best presents ever for my first one.  Did I mention that these presents were delivered in scavenger hunt form?  Beau and Miller are the best dudes. 

Present No. 1....the. most. amazing. gift. ever. 

Simple Human TRASHCAN!

I have been asking for a new trashcan for about 2 years now. is mine!  And, it is no ordinary trashcan. It be fancy.  It be Simple Human.  I exclaimed to Beau, "I can't believe it is Simple really went all out."  His response, "What my baby wants, my baby gets." 

Present No. 2...

Wrapped Canvas Photograph of the Mill Man by Twirl Photography

It is pretty really does look like a piece of art.  His little face now stares at us while we watch TV.  I am excited because this is the beginning of a photo wall that has been 1,000 years in the making.  I am shopping on West Elm today for frames and will, of course, keep you guys updated.  I promise!

Please hang in here with me....if you are still here.  My posts will likely not be as substantive as before life as I knew it changed, but I really hope to get back on the stick.  I hope you will be with me for the ride.
