One moment, he’s a baby, crawling and squawking for milk. A perfect picture of dependence. It was only a few days ago that I gave birth to him, right?

Christmas is coming people!! Can you believe that it’s December already? Because I can’t…. (cue the fast chugging of chai tea)
I don’t know about you, but each year I find myself more and more drawn to minimalistic ideas for gifts.
Gifts that don’t leave so much clutter behind. Gifts that are meant to be used, instead of stored after one month.
