Welcome to Paisley Petunia…part two!
I find inspiration in pretty pictures, endless possibilities in a bowl of Meyer lemons, the meaning of lifetime devotion in the wagging tails of our 3 rescue dogs, end-of- the-day bliss in a glass of red wine and now, the boundless, soul clutching meaning of life in the faces of my 2 little angels.
It's a happy, creative, joy-full life we've got here in the LA sun. Come play! Bring wine.
Apologies for the severe lack of posting around Paisley Petunia these days. I am fully consumed with my quick move up to San Francisco, adjusting to the commute into the City, immersing myself in the new gig, and looking for a new apartment. All things that I am really and truly loving, minus the hand to hand combat that is the competitive renter’s market in SF. Boo.
So until I can figure out both the Caltrain + MUNI schedule, how to get back to my required 10+ hour nights of sleep and not fall asleep on my laptop in bed, not to mention go on blog-worthy adventures in my free time, you will be in very capable hands with C. Thanks for sticking with us during this drought of real life getting in the way of blogging. I’ll try to pop in with updates on the new city, new job, and new adventures when I can.
Part Two, by C
Last weekend I sat down to write a little goodbye note for this blog. I felt like my life in its current form just didn’t lend itself to blogging. When we started this blog we could barely wait to post everyday. We had so much to talk about, so many things to share. It was never a chore and we never felt like we had to do it. We were young, we were always doing something, we lived in LA and we took advantage of everything this city has to offer.
But time marches on…After many years of trying to have a baby, I got two at once! It has been an amazing 9 months with Tinsley + Aiden…cocooned in our little baby haze; poking our heads out mostly for walks in the sunshine and playdates with friends. With nary a shadow of my former self lingering in that late afternoon sun, I reminisced about the girl I used to be…
I used to go places!! Do things! Wear glamorous shoes! But these days I mostly listen to “Wheels on the Bus,” stay comfortably entrenched in yoga pants and the only foodies in my life prefer Cheerios to just about anything else. I wasn’t sure I had anything to blog about because my life is really just about my babies. And Paisley was not a baby blog.
So, it’s time to call a spade a spade. I’m gleefully, joyously, ridiculously happy to be a mommy but I also like being a blogger. With S going on hiatus while she adjusts to life in the big city, I decided I had better make up my mind to blog or not. And I chose blog! No more feeling guilty because I don’t much have much to blog about other than this happy little family I’ve got. I’m a mommy and this is going to be a mommy blog!
It didn’t start out that way and who knows where it will end up but if you want to hang around-I’d love to have you here. But forewarned is fair-warned. It’s going to be a lot of baby (s) a lot of the time. Don’t worry; S will be here now and then to keep us abreast of her still v.v. glamorous life.
In the meantime, Paisley is going to duck out for a little face lift and will be back in fine form shortly!
See you on the flip side…
