So in other things that make me go hmm...gender issues. A vast topic, one I've attempted to write about only to have my post sit there in its unpublished inferiority. Basically though, it would be great, like super peachy keen if as parents, we could stop imposing limitations and/or expectations on our children based on heterosexist, cis-privilege, heteronormative tropes. M'kay?
Some things are awesome, however. Like my friend Jaisie's new tumblr. She also shares a passion for all things domestic (like matched sheet sets with the hems turned down properly), so naturally I'm loving her new blog.
Also, I was given a mention over at ReadyMade this week:
And, for eye candy's sake, one of my favorite rooms on the internet has gray painted floors and served as our initial inspiration.
So that was a little taste of rainbow this week, at least.
There's this bit of awesome from my friend, Tiff, too.
I was reminded twice this week of why I love Maine libraries (and the librarians) so, so much.
In the children's stacks at Portland Public Library.
Oh, and there was our first trip to Maine's one and only, newly opened Trader Joe's. It's great to have another, budget-friendly option for groceries, certainly.
A stop at Levinsky's with my best girl for $10 cozy Maine sweatshirts was pretty sweet, too. Both the kids have been living in them all week, pretty much. Speaking of Olivia, I promised to help her re-dye her hair today, so it's good-bye to the interwebs for a bit longer. Here's hoping that a weekend of connecting and being domestic renews my spirit for next week. (I should mention that Alex is at this moment, bottling up 4 1/2 gallons of blackberry wine.) Happy weekend to you All!
