skate away

the weekend was a lovely one spent with my little family. our schedules have been so hectic lately, it was such a treat to finally slow down together.
we did lots of laying in bed watching christmas movies, eating good breakfasts, warm lunches out, lots more bundling up and painting the town. 

saturday we spent the afternoon downtown ice skating. 
dayton has the best outdoor rink right next to the river. it's fun to see how much max grows each year we come here. his progress is really something...and my, oh my, does he love the ice! his little feet move so fast...he definitely leaves me scuttling about in his dust. 
at least matt can keep up with him!
happy monday, friends!

p.s. kinfolk volume 2 came out today! the website is updated will all sorts of beautiful new photos and videos. i got lost there for hours yesterday.
for those of you curious about my work and paintings, i have a few in this newest issue! you can see a peak of one here. but oh, i'm so anxious to get my hands on the printed volume!

  18. I love the outfit that you were wearing when you were out skating especially that coat and red jeans..You really have a great sense of style and I love it!..And oh by the way,I just want to share this really cool shopping app called "Should I buy it?", http://bit.ly/sibifm33 for fellow online shoppers which you can download at iTunes that allows you to get instant feedback from your Facebook friends on whether you should buy something or not (either for yourself or as a gift).I have tried it and it is really amazing..:D
