I was in Washington, DC this weekend with my Mum for a calligraphy workshop (post to come this week – see sample at the bottom of this post!), and as soon as I touched down in Houston, Sasha and I made plans to meet one of our best friend’s little baby girl, Ellery Grey. She was born on February 19 – the day after my birthday! Ellery is so cute, and I cannot wait for her and Isla to be best friends. Yesterday was my 100-days-left marker, so I’m in the double digits now. I hope the next 99 days fly by.

Isn’t Ellery adorable? I plan on taking a million pictures of her, just like I have with little Pierson.DSC_0358






I love this one – sleeping peacefully in her daddy’s arms!


This is what Matt and Sasha’s future looks like – and also a glimpse at their gorgeously decorated Restoration Hardware house


I landed from the airport and went straight to meet Ellery – stopping briefly to practice my new calligraphy skills for her gift label! We got her the monogrammed stroller blanket from Baby and Child – it’s so soft!

I need to practice more calligraphy, but loving it so far.



  1. love the pics! can’t wait to hear about the trip! i obviously took calligraphy lessons from the wrong person because that is amazing after one weekend. it’s a great modern style. eeeee! can’t wait to see pics like this of isla. and i’m semi-upset that i didn’t know it was your birthday. can we do a joint celebration soon?!

    • Yes!!! I think we definitely need to do a joint celebration. I’d love that. Michele was a wonderful teacher – I honestly am struggling being at work and not practicing (much practice to be had). We need to find a local class or sign up for one of Lauren Essl’s together (doing her intro next Thursday) when she’s in Houston next.

  2. Aaah! Love that you created that gift tag!! It was SO WONDERFUL to finally meet you – and your mom! And I am so thrilled that you had a good time at the workshop. So excited for you and Sasha to become parents, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you!!! It was wonderful to meet you as well – we absolutely loved the workshop. I hear that Mum called you yesterday to ask for advice on ink? She’s addicted too. xoxo

      • She did! I gave her my best advice. I think you all will be swimming in perfect supplies in no time!
