This has to be my favorite onesie I've seen of all time. I love it.
For reasons I'll share later, I haven't done any nursery work for the little guy on the way but I am envisioning some cool decals above his crib. I've had a simple tree in mind but wouldn't a collection of mixtapes be awesome?!?! Haven't seen any online though. Might have to get my bestest friend to draw me some (hi Dianna! ;)
For months I've been loosely thinking about the music I want to have ready for the birth. I've jotted down a song or artist here or there but not done any gathering yet. Need to get on that. Will be funny if we don't end up listening to any of it but I hope it's part of things. Music and smells really hold an experience with you - add to it so well, don't you think?
The title of this blog was inspired by the utopian novel by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, author of The Yellow Wallpaper. The word itself has went further and captured for me a special sense of "place" for me and my daughter Eleanor. A free copy of the book can be read online by clicking the image.
