I made this monster diaper bag for my sister as a 'congratulations, you're a new mom' present. It was definitely the hardest thing I've made so far, but I think it turned out alright...

I used Amy Butler's fabric. Check it out, she's got some great stuff.

Look at all those interior pockets! I guess moms have a lot to carry:)
Enjoy it, Maura!

Meet Sam!

The newest member of the Kimble family, Sam, was born May 2oth. So I had to fly out to Chicago to spend some good QT with my nephew, and of course, visit with my fam.

Sam and his parents, Steve and Maura.

My other brother, Bryan, his girlfriend, Emily, and my Mom all met out there.

Some good 'ole fashion cuddlage with baby Sam.

I don't know how I snagged this picture, but my favorite thing was right before he had to sneeze, as pictured above.

4th year anniversary - orca island

this year is our big 4 year anniversary!
off to orcas island for a nice, quiet, relaxing getaway.

the whole point of this trip was to spend time with
one another, slow down, and take in every moment
with each other.

when we arrived in eastsound, we sat in this little park,
ate a picnic, and just gazed out over the water...

and the lavender.

did we mention lavender?

we stayed at the Inn at Ship Bay, a nice little bed and breakfast with the best restaurant on orcas.
we'd highly recommend this place to anyone wishing a quiet retreat, a quality dinner, and a quiet evening.

the next day, our only adventure [excluding visiting
art studios/shops], was checking out mt constitution.

we have to confess, we drove to the top of this one.

we will surly visit orcas island in the future. we enjoyed the laid back atmosphere, and all of the art.
