Our Month in Moments: January 2014.

Just as it always does, time has been passing quickly. Somehow it is not only 2014, we are already a full month into the new year. We had a pretty fantastic January, packed with friends and a visit from family. We tried new things, started new endeavors and watched our little one grow.

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. 


  1. Oh I love this! Such a beautiful montage of your first month of 2014. LOVE that you kicked off the year visiting your friend's New Year's baby, and your daughter is just adorable :) I've been meaning to check out Vine Gogh for a while... thanks for the reminder! May your February be just as sweet and memorable as your January!

    1. Thank you! You should definitely try out Vine Gogh sometime! It's so much fun!

  2. What a full month! That last picture is just about the most precious thing ever. Great shot!
