My Latest Snag: New Sneakers for Mini.
I wrote recently (skip to post-scripts) that mini has all of the sudden outgrown all of her shoes (literally changed shoe sizes over night), and I just ordered her a slew of new shoes, but my favorite pair? These Liberty London Vejas. I find these sneakers pair well with these white socks.

Weekend Musings: Oplatek.
I recently learned about the Polish tradition of sharing oplatek (a flavorless, cracker-like wafer) on Christmas Eve. The idea is that each family member takes turns breaking off a piece of the wafer and publicly sharing his/her wishes for another family member for the upcoming year. I love this practice — how often do I take the time to share good will or gratitude with a member of my immediate family with the entire gang sitting around? Probably not often enough.
Today, dedicating a virtual and asynchronous oplatek wish for my angel mother, my anchor throughout the vicissitudes of 2020: I wish her a comfortable year of continued good health that is, unlike 2020, full of family.
Feel free to share your own below!

Post-Scripts: This Silver Skirt.
+This skirt!!!! Saloni just gets me.
+The color and design of these smoking loafers = perfect.
+OK, these pointelle floral leggings are a grandmillennial dream.
+Discovered these too late for this Christmas, but just ordered for next holiday season! Perfect for little hands enjoying hot chocolate!
+I mentioned these forever ago, but they have been a huge hit for several months now in our home. Hill started enjoying them as early as 15 months! He has now discovered that they attach (magnetically) to his Ubbi diaper pail, so he loves attaching them, porcupine style. So creative! A slow burn toy for sure.
+A solid snow mitten if you’re in a pinch — these arrived the next day for me when I couldn’t find mini’s Polarn O Pyret pair just in advance of the nor’easter last week.
