A stroll to the park

I think Spring has finally arrived in Minnesota! I was losing hope, especially since last week it snowed twice. (Inconceivable!) Today it reached a perfect sunny 70 degrees :) I was suppose to finish up some work at home, but I just couldn't, it was too beautiful outside. So we threw Grace in the stroller and took her to the park. I don't think we've taken Grace to the park for over a year now. We spent most of last Spring/Summer in the hospital for her surgeries, so I really can't even remember the last time we were able to enjoy a full Summer day. Hopefully this year we'll be able to experience the entire summer 

Jeans: 7for all Mankind      Sweater: Jcrew      Flats: Tory Burch

Headband: Handmade by my talented friend, Samantha Bartlett. She's a good friend of mine from college, mom of two incredibly cute kids, and super talented at all sorts of DIY projects. She made this head band for Grace, but also fits my head too! How fortuitous, I think I'll wear it until Grace asks for it back. I keep telling Sam she should start an Etsy shop, I would totally buy all her cute hand-sewn stuff. I mean, wouldn't you?? :)

Getting so big

Sipping some beer... 
I MEAN, Pellagrino

After we returned from the park, I was doing some work in the study room. All of a sudden it got real quiet. From a distance, I could hear people talking and Grace giggling outside, accompanied by a buzzing sound. What the heck? I stuck my head out the back door to see this: Grandma giving Grandpa a haircut (buzzing sound) and little Grace keeping them company playing on the deck :) 

Keep in touch? :)
