life hasn't settled back into a regular routine yet, but we slept in our own beds last night and the final car-full of family drove away this morning. (sniff, sniff.) it was a whirlwind. the services were beautiful. saying goodbye is difficult and my heart is with our cousins.
also, enzo was intensely curious about the holy water. i ended up with wet feet.
my first contribution for beautifully rooted, an ombre embroidered mobile, went up on friday afternoon while we were out of town. you'll find it and my future posts in the create category where i'll be sharing handmade goodness. i was wowed by the response from a few readers who have already made their own versions. that makes my heart happy.
