never leave the stream of warm impermanence

song of the day: 'changes' by david bowie
it's lightly snowing right now. thankfully there's not enough to have closed schools, because after a weekend playing single mom I'M READY FOR MY BREAK! he's a joy, seriously :) but it is pretty seeing the world dusted with white. there's supposed to be more coming our way and i'm excited to go on a snowy run.
thanks for the awesome feedback about the new layout and weekend post featuring matilda! it feels good to make changes and it is most definitely getting me out of my funk. it's so funny how even the smallest things can make a big difference. but yeah my mood is getting back on track and i'm so thankful for that.
but this weekend was a good one for me. i got a lot done with updating the shop and am forming a plan that will help me be more consistent in that. i think using the dress form and taking the photos at the shop are the keys to getting it done. i'm just terribly lazy when it comes to taking etsy photos!
and i took outfit pics this weekend so i have them for the week ahead. this is what i wore on saturday to the shop. isaiah and i went across the street and he climbed on the rocks while i snapped pictures! it was nice because i had more time and i felt more organized. feels good, you know?
and the kiddo and i had a good time just the two of us. we had a movie night on friday, got him some new shoes, he kept me company at the shop and then we watched a lot of football. i spent a ton of time on twitter and laughed a lot. but i was so thankful to get matt back last night. the world is so much better when he's around :)
so that's a lot of words for a monday morning. have a great day!

Oof. I'm so late in commenting!! Well, I still wanted to comment and tell you that I adore this outfit. The plaid and faux fur are so perfect together, especially perfect for a cold winter day.

And I'm so glad Matt's back!
