my week in objects (mostly).

March 20, 2015

five little things that made my week.

1. this little bag.
bag {because it was filled with trail mix for getting through long days at the library}.

2. this upside down basket.
basket {because honestly, it’s the best twenty dollars we’ve spent. and because it’s faye’s favorite place to pull herself up these days.}

3. this book.
hey natalie jean {for being such an open-hearted joy to read.}

4. these backward books.
books {so faye can’t pull every single one out. also, sticky notes.}

5. james’s blue hat.
hat {because i appropriated it for myself. and because i’m holding out hope that i won’t have to wear it much longer.}

other things:
this post made my cry in public and take a deep breath. (this one, too.) (thank you, tara.)

christine got me thinking about coloring books. i think i might order this one (and maybe this one, too).

women on 20s.
more safe cosmetics, thanks to my friend hadley.
drenched in honey.
currently ogling.
beautiful, beautiful nettle bread.

me in other places:
living large in small places.

    I'm always amazed at how I can envision your week in just a few photos, and a handful of words

    Are you going to the central library? I manage the cafe there… you should stop by for pie! Ask for Mo!

    So inspiring, as always. I really enjoyed listening to the podcast. Thank you, Erin, and good luck with the writing. I'm looking forward to reading your book.

    I was listening to the podcast, and the part about babies, and was reminded of something my baby class teacher once said: you are your child's favorite toy. It's so true! My nine month old would rather play with me, my face, my hands, my hair (unfortunately), be held, be bounced, danced with, endless hours of mimicking expressions and sounds…than anything we've ever bought her!

    tara's words, yes. i am trying to do something so hard right now and she is exactly right that validation can feel like warmth. i know you are too and i cannot wait to read your words.

    Loved the podcast interview! And its so different to actually hear your voice after following your blog for years.

    Erin, could I ask where you got the Connecticut map print above your computer in your old apartment? I've been looking for one for a while!

    • Reply Erin April 2, 2015 at 5:51 pm

      It's from Raven Maps! (And it's actually of southern New England (CT, RI, and MA!)
