My First Bow

I live with 3 boys, one is a dog, but still. It isn't very girly at our house. I decided I needed a bit of girlyness for myself and got a fantastic headband and bow from Mommy and Me Boutique on etsy. I love them so much and they are super girly. What I really love about the headband is that you can put any clip you like on them. Well, Sunday morning it was feeling like a girly bow day. My flower bow is pink and wouldn't have gone well with what I was wearing. I headed downstairs and whipped up this fantastic blue bow in 5 minutes, great since we were leaving in 10. I love how it turned out. I slipped a clippie through the center and clipped it to the headband and was ready to go. I saw the design on several pintrest pics and it was very easy. I will probably have a bow collection that any 4 year old would envy in no time.
It reminds me of Alice in Wonderland which makes it that much better!

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.


Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
