A Little Bit of Sunshine

We’re now down to one week before we move to California. The time has flown by unbelievably fast, and with the cold front moving in to Utah, I’m grateful to be heading to sunny California in just a few short days. But at the same time, I’d be pretty happy to just throw on some bright yellow and bring the California sunshine here, just so I didn’t have to leave my friends behind. Peanut’s last day of preschool is today, our last mommy school was last Friday, and our last Sunday at church is this coming weekend. So many “lasts” and goodbyes, it just making me sad.

Happily, I spent Saturday afternoon with some of my favorite girls at the Bijou Market, followed by lunch at Station 22. Cause if we have to say goodbye, at least we can do it over pretty handmade things and delicious food.

  23. A.Michelle says:

    Congrats on the baby! He is so cute. I know this a silly question, but the sweater your wearing, is it the same kind that you altered the pockets on previously? I really like the look of it and was wondering where you got it?


  24. Tish says:

    Hi Merrick, I have been a fan of your blog for a little while now, congrats on your new little one and good luck with the move!! I would also really love the details of your gorgeous baby wrap as I'm having my second bub in May 2013!

  25. Congratulations on baby #2! He looks so very sweet all wrapped up πŸ™‚ The first thing I thought when I saw this picture pop up in my email was, "I'm missing yellow in my closet!" now I know what color to look for on my next clothes shopping adventure! This outfit is super cute, and a perfect post-baby body choice.

    Good luck with the move as well!
