"Violet, You’re Turning Violet!"

We believe we should all love where we live.

We’re a couple of homebodies, working to uncover the home our home wants to be. And we’re so happy to have you here.

Our girl loves frozen blueberries.  Loves. Them.

How is it possible she’ll be two in less than a week?!

    sorry for the late post, but i have an unrelated question–i know you mentioned that violet is very tall–are those onesies larger than 18-24 months? my 18 month old has grown out of all his onesies (except for a couple my mil bought in finland) and i would love to buy some plain, bigger ones for him. my husband and i are also tall people (5’10 and 6’3), and i come from extremely tall people (women who are 6’2 and men that get up to 6’8), and my 2nd boy is super tall, too…just thought i’d ask!

  2. Soooo exciting. Thanks, Freya!

  4. I JUST watched Charlie and the Chocolate factory! Ahhhh I miss her. Everytime Rory comes in the door and says hello I say in my greta voice “AYyyyyyyy!” (Hey)

    Emlin loves blueberries too! And she also has the same high chair as Greta, which I think may have a recall on it, but I haven’t really looked into it. And I love the photo with you next to your art, I think you should for sure keep doing that with all your art, it’s insane how talented the Bradley girls are!
