Howdy there! I can't even believe it has been eight months since I've checked in here- see the photo above, if you are wondering why I've been so quiet- taking care of this little one gobbles up most of my time. And its my favorite thing I've ever done in my life! That hair! Can't even count the number of times a day I run my fingers through it, and will it to stay whisper-soft and baby-like and sticking-straight-up-ish forever. 

The transition to motherhood has been such a sweet and amazing time for me. I get emotional trying to even grasp at words to describe it. I know everyone always says this, and I never could have understood it until he arrived- the depth of love I feel for him is so incredible and overwhelming there is no way I could have anticipated it. It is almost as if it starts to touch everything in its vicinity, like a spreading vine with little tendrils. I'm so awed and honored to be Silas' mama. Our family is so blessed. 

And I'm still working on calligraphy.  And loving it.  Just fitting it into naptime and bedtime and whatever other time I can squeeze out of the day. I've been working on lots of tattoos and hope to be able to start sharing more work soon in this space.  I also have an exciting little collaboration with Kathryn from Blackbird Letterpress which I am thrilled to share with you super soon.

I hope you are well, too, friends! Tell me how you have been. xo
