WW #44: Pink and Peace

Hello everyone…Very saddened by the events in Paris but figured that for the sake of consistency I would try to get our Weekly Wrap Up out. More thoughts on Paris at the end of this post.

The big news from our house is that after much reflection, we decided to paint the girls’ room pink. I breastfed and nursed all my babies from this room and you might recognize it from other videos since it doubles as my studio. So stayed tuned for a pink background in future videos.

In keeping with the pink theme, I headed out to dinner with some pink drop earrings! Of course, as is my style, I confessed to the other moms that I had scored these fun pink accessories at a neighborhood store for $8.

More pink — and lavender and white – from a luscious store window that caught my eye.

The girls were invited to an early “friendsgiving” and insisted on bringing their dolls. Each donned a vest -Annaliese’s was a hand-me-down from my pal Tamela and Marielle’s a gift from Grandma.

Hedley went to a dance with GIRLS and we settle on this old, favorite shirt since it’s his most comfortable.


Beckett celebrated his final soccer game with a cupcake and donut lunch!

Our hearts are with the people of Paris as they grapple with the horrible events of last Friday. We have so much to do in this world, so much to change and so much to learn. Let us all try to practice kindness and bring peace into others’ lives.

Sending peace and love to your family,
