Happy Weekend!

Happy Friday everyone! And happy first week of Autumn! Are things starting to cool off where you are? It still feels like summer here in DC during the day, with wonderful cool evenings and the most gorgeous sunsets. I’m looking forward to diving into some Fall and Halloween projects over the next few weeks! But in the meantime…

Happy Friday everyone! I’m in full birthday party prep mode today, so I’m going to keep this short and sweet before I dash back to my to do list! But in the meantime…

Happy Weekend!

Happy Friday everyone! Such a short week, right? I know most of you are probably sad to see summer coming to a close, but I am SO EXCITED for Fall, you guys. I can’t wait to wear sweaters, switch from iced coffee to hot coffee, and be able to stand out in my back yard without getting bitten by mosquitos every five seconds. Soon! But in the meantime…

Happy Weekend!

Happy Friday everyone! Are you ready for the long Labor Day weekend? I know I am! Also, on Monday, I turn 35. I don’t get as excited about my own birthdays anymore these days, since my two girls have birthdays only 7 and 11 days later, respectively, so I’m usually focused on celebrating them. But 35 kind of feels like a big one. I’m looking forward to a quiet celebration with my family and soaking up these last few summer days (although I seriously cannot wait for the cooler weather to arrive!). But in the meantime…

Happy Weekend!

Happy Friday everyone! A huge thanks to Nichole for her AMAZING guest posts on OSBP this week. Tomorrow I’m heading up to New York for the summer NYNOW market. I’m going to try to pop in here once or twice next week, but otherwise be sure to follow me on Instagram to see all my finds from the show.

On a much sadder note, I’ve spent quite a bit of time this week looking at the videos and images coming out of Aleppo, Syria and the situation is absolutely desperate right now. Aleppo is a city of 300,000 people, of which 120,000 are children, and they are suffering more than I can even begin to fathom at the hands of the Syrian government. Ten thousand children have already died in the conflict, from air strikes, starvation, and lack of medicine –4,500 of them from Aleppo alone. The Syrian government continues to drop bombs and chemical weapons on its own people every single day. As a mother, I’m heartbroken by the images of dead and wounded children coming out of Aleppo, but I’m also outraged that the international community has failed to intervene. I’m planning to say a bit more about this as soon as I can gather my thoughts, but in the meantime, please look at the hashtags (here, here, here, and here), read the media reports (the New York Times seems to have the best coverage at the moment), and, if you can, please donate to UNICEF.

On a lighter note, a few links for your weekend:
