Weekend Musings: It Doesn’t Have to Be the Blue Iris.
This Mary Oliver poem, titled “Praying,” struck a chord with me:
“It doesn’t have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch
a few words together and don’t try
to make them elaborate, this isn’t
a contest but the doorway
into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.”
Post-Scripts: Cocktail Napkins.
+These battery-powered, rechargeable table lamps are SO chic for an outdoor dinner party! The height and colors are so dramatic!
+Love all of the prints that this skirt comes in. Wow! So fun and so easy to pair with a white tank/tee now or a button-down when a little cooler.
+Speaking of skirts — guess I’m in a skirt mood?! — still swooning over this gorgeous full white skirt, this slip skirt to pair with a crewneck cashmere sweater in fall (look for less), and this stunning drop-waist floral.
+Adore this “lime cherry blossom” print!
+Great striped basic tee for micro’s fall wardrobe. $6! Love it in the olive/white. I also have to say I have bought multiple batches of the face masks from Old Navy for mini over the last year — they are inexpensive, come in fun seasonal prints/colors that coordinate nicely, and I find they are the easiest for mini to wear. I think they’re the perfect mask for everyday use at school. Not so precious you’ll cringe at buying replacements, too! Will be buying a new set for fall!
+Such a fun sweatshirt for a little one!
+Love this simple gray rug! I almost impulse-ordered it for my office, but I’m still not sure what color palette I want in here.
+Mini has proven to be highly prone to carsickness. I have heard children’s dramamine works well, and I might consider that for longer car rides, but this is a case where sometimes we’re just driving twenty minutes and she starts complaining that her stomach “feels funny” and I don’t want to give her dramamine all the time. Any suggestions? I did order her these anti-nausea wristbands to try — when I was having my c-section, the anaesthesiologist had Landon press down on the same pressure points on my wrist to help with nausea/shakes, so I’m willing to give it a go. I also found these anti-nausea lollipops but I have a feeling she’ll claim she’s not feeling well all the time if it means a lollipop is at the other end? (In the meantime, I did order emesis bags for the car, and THANK GOD for her washable carseat!).
+This cleansing oil is an instant-reorder for me as soon as I finish a bottle. I use it every single morning.
+SERIOUSLY chic gold and pearl ring. Looks one-of-a-kind!
+This gingham dress comes in such great colors. Especially love the sage green.
+Love the brand Mushie for unexpectedly chic children’s mealtime finds. This little snack cup is amazing!
