note to self

Rhona Mitra Haircut

As bad ass as I'd like to be I'm no Eden Sinclair. Rhona Mitra is a serious la femme nikita in this not so great really but kinda fabulous anyway zombie meets mad max meets twenty four days later type flick called Doomsday. I was totally seduced by her fabulous hair. I never fall for stuff like that. I didn't run out and get the Rachel cut even though I adore Friends and have seen every episode (embarssing confession I realize). I think I had a mid-life crisis moment, one of many I'm having and expect to continue acting on with blind abandon. I cut my hair off. May sound blase to some, but I haven't had hair above my shoulders in probably twenty years. This was huge. Seriously. See photos of the big event.

I'm writing this weeks later with twenty twenty vision as they say and I now wish I hadn't hacked it off. I love Rhona's cut but I don't' have her hair or her Hollywood stylist. Taking the time to do my hair each morning causes me grief and frustration. I am a pony tail, french twist, barrette wearing mama. Note to self, know thyself.

fishing pond

Fishing Pond
Max and I spent the night at my studio working on this sign for his school's May Festival which is happening this sunday. The letters are still yet to be glued and some fish need to be added. Not sure which midnight hour I'll get the finishing touches done — wish me luck.

Max has a new swim teacher named Chad. He is very calm and supportive and Max is thriving. Here he is doing his first jump into the deep end of the pool! He was nervous but brave.

glamoured gushing

Ooooh without slighting my own gorgeous and practically perfect offspring : : wink : : can I just gush over my deliciously handsome and glamourizing nephew Caetano? Case in point, just look deep into his big brown eyes and behold his inner (and outer!) beauty. If you only you knew, this boy is a delight to hold, he's super mellow, loves to be held, taken for a walk or bounced, and will fall asleep and stay sleeping peacefully in your arms for hours — ok hours in a crib not being held would make his mommy happy and give her a much deserved break, but still he's nothing less than practically perfect. Oh baby you are stunning. I miss you xoxo — auntie
