The weather this early spring has been so very warm, so deceptively, irrationally warm, that it's sometimes startling to see that no flowers yet bloom on the trees, that only the very first hint of green buds are peeking out on the very earliest trees, and that nothing has yet dared bloom in the gardens save a few crocuses. March is known to be the snowiest month in Colorado, and typically the ski resorts depend on it, but you wouldn't know it here in Denver this year.
Because of the unusually warm weather, we have already spent numerous days down by the confluence of the rivers, wading and sunbathing and collecting pebbles. I'd venture to say that Q is already getting a suntan.
And I mean....how frickin' cute is this little sun suit? Who would've guessed that Q would be wearing it so soon. This is from the spring/summer collection at Anais & I.
I illustrate for Jane, the designer at Anais & I, and I also consider her a friend, but it reflects no prejudice when I say that I just adore her designs. Each and every piece we've ordered is just so perfect on Q...so easy to wear, so perfectly designed, so effortlessly chic - and this one might be the best one yet!
The bag, btw, was made by Cara at Made In Mommy. Q has a lot of bags, but this is her favorite beach bag.
Isn't she just a little water nymph?
I think that there is no more soothing form of meditation on a warm spring afternoon than sitting on a rock and watching children play in the water.
Writing on the air.
Long legs, both of us.
Of course, this IS Colorado, so there's usually something like this going on nearby.
Pretty pretty girl.
When I say that, she says, "No! Not pretty. Just Q."
