Weekend Bits

nesting. redecorating. sunflowers from didz. 

It's been a little while since I've shared bits of our weekend on the ol' Flamingoblog... partly because we haven't been doing much of anything noteworthy, but mostly because I'm being selfish. I'm keeping these moments to myself - enjoying every bit of "me" time that I can without the noise of a guilty conscience nagging me to respond to those unanswered emails or updating the blog. I'm savouring every minute alone with Didz, while it's just the two of us, knowing that our life is about to be flipped upside down with the arrival of Didzette. I'm appreciating the stillness of the apartment first thing in the morning and quiet walks through the park taking note of the rapidly changing color palette, while bundling my scarf just a little tighter with each whisper of a cool breeze through the trees.

not too chilly for gelato.
afternoon stroll through the art museum.
individual banana bread stars. 

Happy October, dear friends... enjoy the crisp autumn air and the sweet cinnamony smell of banana bread baking! 


  1. It's never too chilly for gelato :)

  2. Never ever too chilly for gelato!!!

    Glad you are savoring these moments. Keep doing it while they're here. <3

  3. Maybe we should make t-shirts that say "it's never too chilly for gelato"... oh, and stella, we will absolutely need a gelato man to live with us at our Italian countryside commune. Duh. :)

  4. OH MY GOSH HOW DID WE FORGET GELATO?!?!?! We can't self-sustain without it. Noted and working on recruiting. :)
