Late afternoon tea date with this girl. She has grown up SO MUCH this past year…

  1. That first link? From Heidi?
    A- to the – Men!!!!

  2. That lion video made me weep, I’m such a sucker. Also, my daughter is named Blythe, and I am always waiting for the day I turn around and it’s cracked the top 1000 list. The way we name our kids is such a funny business.

  3. Sweetness!! Really liked the Jeff Goins article.

  4. I LOVE that picture of your daughter! And the quote from St. Francis- perfect!

  5. The teacup is as big as she is! Darling!

  6. I love that your daughter has a massive cup of tea! What a nice time the two of you must have had.

  7. That baby naming article was fascinating and hilarious. It reminded me of a couple chapters of Freakanomics. And as a Jennifer, I particularly appreciated it :).

    And the pic of your big girl–!! She’s just beautiful. What a fun age. Makes me excited for the coming years with my own babies. Happy Weekend, Tsh!

  8. Wow, your little girl is cute.
