well, hot dog! i have the most wonderful cheerleaders in my life. thank you so much for all of your sweet sweet votes! when i see you francisco i'm giving him the biggest hug.

what i've been doing:

making lots of dresses! i am so happy to be making dresses for birthdays, pictures, every day! when making this dress for ava i thought of her uberstylish mama maryann. she has the best taste and loves fun prints. i'm so excited to see ava in it! this print reminds me so much of my le sportsac makeup bag!

good news! after racking my brain, looking at a million tutorials, comparing with similar patterns, consulting my mentor lindsey, i am finally able to offer my dresses in sizes 2-6. hooray! i will have to charge an extra $10 because of the extra fabric. just convo me here if you're interested!

what i've been getting in the mail:

what i've been overhearing:

today miss m. was reading her zoo book and i hear her going "ahh ahh ahh" and see that she is looking at the page with the monkey and i always go "ooh ooh ahh ahh" and it was thrilling to see her mimicking me while she thought i wasn't looking! heart=melting.

what i've been researching:

places to go for our five year anniversary. remember we were gonna go here...yea. i just can't leave matilda for that long. we're looking for a long, romantic weekend in the states. totally up for suggestions! here's what i've found...

i commented on your blog a few posts ago wondering how the lovebird dress would look on a 28 year old... you must've read my mind... ;) i too would love a dress, but seeing as though i just had a baby i am not yet back to a size 2-6... something to look forward to!

Oh goodness! I meant 2t to 6. Haha! No plans for womens, sorry! I would never be that size exclusive if I did pursue it either!!

Will you make a dress in a woman's size 4? Pleassseeee. Baby you might put A out of business with a pattern like that!

Just wanted to tell you that I have enjoyed reading your blog, and that dress is absolutely adorable! I love that print! I have looked through the other dresses you have made as well and although they are fabulous this one is by far my favorite! You should definitely make a custom listing in your store for it. Take care!

i've stayed at AVIA in Savannah last year and loved it!! Only thing is, there was a lot of construction around the hotel...don't know if it's still going on or not. look at Sonoma, CA too! it's lovely!!
