over the weekend…

this weekend we enjoyed trying to dodge mosquitos on family walks,
homemade muffins and dinner at taylor gourmet,
a breakfast and games at the park with our church group,
lots of rain, lots of messes around our house
(who wants to come over and help me clean?!),
and lots of the most adorable smiles from samson boy.
we also should have been sleeping (or cleaning?!) but
josh and i stayed up and watched the documentaries
because sometimes we’re dumb like that
and think we don’t need sleep.
have you seen either of those?
absolutely beautiful films. the world is full
of such talented and inspiring individuals.
hope your weekend was a good one!
happy monday.

    Great suggestion of films! I've been to a concert of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes recently, best concert I've been to in a while!

  5. Beautiful photos. Samson is so gorgeous!

  6. Taza, Where did you get your muslin blanket you have on Samson? I like it so much! I am having my first baby girl in September and I am having a hard time finding fun stores to buy kids clothes, pj's, and other stuff at. Where do you like to shop?
    Thanks! :)

  7. Hello lovely Naomi! Just wanted to stop in and say that. We think you need to come out to the "motherland" and this time 'somebody' will be there to see you guys. Hopefully you haven't written this 'somebody' off already for her flakiness. Anyway, loving the hat as of late (oh and sorry for posting under "ThreadEthic" I'm always signed in there). By the way you should visit Desi and Ryan if you're ever in NY. I'm sure they would love to see you. Love you!

    I can't believe I have yet to watch Big Easy Express! For my birthday last year, my husband and I actually took Amtrak [it only made sense to take the train!! :P] from Birmingham, AL to New Orleans for their last show on the tour and it was one of the best, most memorable experiences of my life. I wish I could live it over and over again, and I hope that the documentary may come close to that.

    Im sure lots of people have asked you this already but where do you get Eleanor's hair clips and where did you get your cute hat??
