I spotted this bag on one my new favorite blogs this morning, House of Harper, and it makes me happy.
Check out Barrington Gifts to design your own. I think this would make the perfect diaper bag or just cute tote to carry around. Love it!
Weekend Notes: On Sunday early afternoon Dan, Caroline and I made a visit to Heritage General Store, my absolute favorite coffee place in the city, for donuts and coffee and then headed over to Emerald City Theater to take Caroline to see her first live performance! The show was aimed at the 0-4 age range and she just LOVED it! C is generally pretty timid in new situations and this was no exception but she has been talking non-stop about the teddy bear in the show since we left. I can’t wait to see the calendar for the Spring and I think a few more months older will have her even more engaged!
This past weekend, we celebrated Caroline’s 2nd birthday. Last year, we had quite the party at my parents house but this year I wanted to keep it low-key and all about the kiddos. Sticking with a theme of balloons and polka dots, we decided to host it here in Chicago at LPAC Kids Club and have light snacks, Sweet Mandy B’s and a guitar player for entertainment! The weather was snowy and cold and we were sad that the cousins couldn’t make it, but Caroline was able to spend her day with lots of friends and family. And, she LOVED every minute of it.
I was reading my AD this month and came across Patrick Dempsey’s Malibu home that he shares with his family. No shock here that I love that space (along with many others out there), it is clean and fresh and has the perfect mix of color and natural elements. I especially loved the firewood element as decoration and it reminded me of another one of my very favorite house tours, that of Catherine Kwong.
