So I took off from any attempt to blog this whole fall and into winter because, well, I’ve been busy. REALLY busy.
Kiddo started kindergarten and one would think that having 1 less child around the house for 2 1/2 hours a day would aid in my productivity but one would think wrong. It’s just more stuff added to my daily schedule.
Oh. OH! And I forgot to mention my new mode of transportation.
Yup. I bought a bike. A cargo bike. Fits the kids, groceries, international packages. All in style. Since Kiddo’s school is 3/4 of a mile up the road and the post office is just over a mile, I thought I’d give it a go. We went everywhere this fall. Our weekend trips to downtown Minneapolis or up the Mississippi river on the plethora of trails are definitely some of the better parts of living here. So easy to get everywhere (I’ve even loaded the bike down from trips to Target a few too many times).
They love it.
And then winter happened. It happened hard. What did I expect? I live in Minnesota…
But Kiddo still needed to get to school.
So we built a snow cover. In our kitchen.

Then it got REALLY cold! Bitter cold. I can handle riding in temperatures down to about 21. That’s my personal threshold. After that it hurts to breathe and I want to punch someone at the end of the trip. No bueno. So the bike is parked for a few weeks till it gets up in the 20s again and maybe even stops snowing (wishful thinking).
|Yes. I rode like that a few days. With 2 pairs of gloves.|
That’s a glimpse into what’s been going on around here behind the scenes. We’ve been busy with sewing and keeping orders going out. I have a few new things in store (y’all should go join the newsletter to find out what new products are coming!) and am constantly searching for new prints/designs/inspiration!
