festive birthday times

I ordered the Early Riser Companion book in the winter (through a Kickstarter project) and it arrived at the end of July. I was so glad to receive it a week before my birthday.

We visited the Tail of the Yak and I got some pretty fabric trim. I also bought myself some straw flowers.

Clover made this garland from ribbons she had and her and maiki bought me yummy shortbread cookies, both Walkers and Miette. It all felt so special.

changing rooms again

Emma likes having her own room for the most part. She loves her dollhouse and desk set up in her own particular way. I appreciate that it all stays in her room now and I don’t have to share my opinion of her love of cluttered spaces. maiki and I like having our own space too. It feels like we share a cute studio that most reflects us. I think that we have finally figured out where all of the furniture fits well and our home is as comfortable as it can be. We don’t strive for less for the sake of minimalism but rather keep the items that are useful and spark joy, as they say. Having a one bedroom apartment for our family still works for now.
