and you thought Steve looked good in a bow tie

When I look back at the summer of 2013, I think that I will remember it both as the summer we became parents, and also the summer that I sewed bow ties almost non stop.  My days revolve around both toddler and bow ties and sometimes, sometimes, I get to combine the two. 

Can you even stand it?  This is what I'm working with over here.  

Coming soon to Plumfield Shop- bow ties for boys.  Because I have a boy.  And he looks darn cute in a bow tie.

I promise I'm coming back

Friends, there have been so many times over the past two months (two months?!? really?) that I've wanted to blog about all we're experiencing, but something else always seems to win out.  Sometimes it's cooking or cleaning or showering, but most often it's playing trucks or running in the yard or snuggling.  

But I've had so many sweet friends over the past few weeks mention that they have been checking the blog for updates, so I thought I'd post a quick one and hope that there is time in the future for more.   

There's so much I'd like to tell you about our trip to Taiwan and the weeks that have followed, but for now I'll just say that life is so, so good.  Sure, we have sleepless nights and I manage to end up with big gobs of lotion in my hair at least twice a week, but we are living the dream over here.  

The other night, the three of us were in the kitchen cooking dinner together.  We had music playing and were laughing and talking (some English, some Chinese, lots of babbling) and I had one of those rare and precious moments where you look around you and realize that you have exactly what you've always wanted.  I just wanted to stay in the kitchen with my two best guys forever.  

So that's the short version.  Soon, perhaps, I'll regale you with tales of international wonders and trying to sew bow ties with a toddler.  I've had several people ask if the shop is still open and I'm pleased to say that it is and I'm actually working on a few new items this month.  I've also got some great stuff in the Sale section that you should totally check out because I need to move it out of the house now that we fill our closets with things like diapers.  You know.  

With any luck, I'll be seeing you again soon.
