Entries in holidays (31)
Even though Jaime clearly won't remember this Christmas, I want it to be special. I want to be able to tell him stories about the magical moments from his first Christmas.
Of course stuff doesn't make the Christmas magic. And my little bug is not old enough for the magic of santa. So we shall be seeking Christmas magic in little outtings in our new city, some are sure to become new traditions (I can't wait to go to the caroling at Washington Square Park). But a few cute holiday onesies, pajamas and a beautiful baby's first Christmas ornament are certainly nice bits of stuff to add in with those magic moments.
For the holidays this year I am doing a lot of handmade/crafted gifts. As I am short on time and because there are some awesome handmade goods out there, I am planning to do much of my holiday shopping on etsy. Here are a few of my favorites that I think would make excellent gifts for women (I have already purchased a few or similar items as gifts or for myself)...

Thank you all for your sweet comments and thoughts last week; I sincerely appreciate it. They truly brightened my day.
The holidays are here! There are signs of it everywhere you look in the city...
I kind of just want to move right into this last house. Sure it would be super tiny... but it is so cute. And has an awesome location.
Old Town is charming, it makes me excited to be right there at that moment. Pretty awesome quality for a neighborhood, right?
