Here are some of the highlights of our month.
*We spent lots of cold evenings by the fire.
*We made our first, but definitely not last, trip to Pip's Original Doughnuts for the most delicious little mini doughnuts.
*I met my friend Rebeka's adorable daughter Cameron, born on Jan 1, 2014, just shortly after the new year began.
*We spent just about every Friday night having fun with family game night.
*Vine Gogh wine and painting night with my friend Salena.
*I had a very relaxing yoga night out with my MOMS Club friends.
*Amelia and I enjoyed a trip to the Portland Children's Museum and playdates in the park with friends.
*I started a really fun and inspiring collaboration with [IN]Complete Magazine. Hey Normal Day Shop is contributing the handlettering for the magazine's weekly Words to Live By Wednesday series.
*My mom (Grams) came to visit for a week of fun that included lots of hanging out, playing with and spoiling Amelia, and eating lots of good food.
*David and I took Grams up on her offer to babysit and went out for a date night at the delicious Spanish tapas restaurant, Toro Bravo, where we enjoyed the chef's tasting menu.
*I went to my first meeting of the newly formed Ladies Who Brunch Book Club. We brunched at Jam on Hawthorne and selected our first book, The Snow Child.
*Amelia, just demonstrating her awesomeness.
*MOMS Club playdate fun with friends.
*And to round out the month, maybe one of my favorite pictures ever of Amelia. :)
2014, you've been good to us so far.
