Lucy is 3!
Did you know? Lucy turned 3 this week! (Just kidding, it’s all I’ve talked about.) Her one request was a unicorn cake – although when she says it, it sounds like unicoin cake, my heart! – and I used this kit atop a pink + purple cake to make her wildest dreams come true. She loved it.
Of course, this year was different than years past. We celebrated over pizza and unicorn cake with our nanny’s family, so that Lucy could be with her best friend (our nanny’s 3-year-old son, whom she’s known since she was 6 months old). We Marco Polo-ed with family. We received the sweetest texts and video messages from friends, sharing each one aloud with Lucy. Although it was different than we imagined, it was a day filled with love and celebration. I still got misty thinking about the day she was born (does that feeling ever fade? I hope not!), and I squeezed her tight at the time of her birth.
Happy birthday to you, Goose! We love you to the moon and back.
I can’t stop, won’t stop watching roller skating videos on Instagram. They’re calming, remind me to pause, and they’re so, so beautiful. @neonkeon and @frankvinyl_skates are my current favorites. They’re like potato chips – you can’t watch just one.
This year has already proved to be the emotional equivalent of an ultramarathon. To help you hit the reset button, it’s key to know some quick, efficient stress-reducing strategies. Here are a few ideas[…]— How to Reset (or at Least Lower) Your Stress in 5 Minutes
Already wishing for the transition from winter to spring so that I can throw on my new cropped coat! (I got oatmeal to help conceal the Catfish fur I also wear every day.)
Last week, I shared in Stories that I needed to take a mental health break. When I thought I couldn’t possible have one more feel, Lucy reminded me that being creative is fuel for the soul. (Turned out, she was right.) And when I asked you to tell me something good, you showed up in droves! Out of the hundreds and hundreds of replies, these perked me right up, and I’m hoping they’ll bring a smile to your face, too.
I ordered these Madewell jeans during a holiday sale, and holy cats. I love them! I ordered a size up (whether that’s due to sizing or quarantine, I can’t say), and the petite hits me right above the ankle – no small feat in petite sizes! It’s my favorite wash, loose but not frumpy, like a perfect pair of boyfriend jeans. 10/10, would recommend! Speaking of which, Madewell is hosting another secret stock sale, and it’s good.

Have a Relaxing Weekend
It’s been an eventful year, friends. Take care of yourself, breathe deeply, and seek out the time you need to recharge – however that looks for you! We’re hoping to make some progress in the snug and play room, with a lot of downtime mixed in. What are you up to?
