if you don't already know, stella is my first ever niece! i think my heart wants to burst how much i adore this one. i did not expect to feel this strong about my sister's beh-beh. and now i'm back and i'm bragging about stella to everyone at work, but it's just not the same to them! haha. i keep catching myself and saying "you just have to meet her". i think i will smash my kids when i have them. i make myself nervous sometimes.
with that, please excuse me as i gush some pics of our much-missed weekend
for one, stella has an undying obsession with the light - any light
we talked about it, and stella agreed to hand over the leopard pants for when i have a girl (or boy - whaa?)
me and katya
katya took us to this lovely vintage shop one of the days. so much eye candy!
one of the shop owners
after coffee and macaroons at pistachia vera
anyway - there's much much more here if you care to see. we spent so much time sitting at the table transitioning from breakfast into lunch it's not even funny. stella just kept is on our toes with her cycle of eat, play, sleep.
i guess you had to be there :)
on another note, i found a treasure which i have posted on my shop. i also included a favorite sweater. winter ain't goin' nowhere just yet from what i gather. or maybe i'm just always cold!
the pants will go up there too. soon.
thanks for reading!!!!
