Yep! It's my Bloggy Birthday today! Five years! Have you been following right from the beginning? I don't suppose you have. There were very few posts in that first year. But isn't it cool to have that whole little story of one's family there to look back on? I can see kids grow, babies born, recipes we've made, craft and design and learning and the evolution of our home... and that familiar cycle of mothering, especially that frustrating, love filled period of mothering a toddler. I can see how we move through the seasons. The traditions, abundance... I can learn from the past.
Owlet, for me, began 15 years ago. It was a range of children's clothing and textile designs, based on a book I was given as a child. What I took from Hiawatha's Childhood was the gentle parenting approach and I worked with symbols of universal motherhood, and brotherhood. I guess things don't really change that much, hey? They just keep growing and evolving as common themes rework themselves... And it is lovely to have a place to watch all that growth happen.
Anyhow, I'd like to thank you for following our little journey so far and hope you'll keep reading along. It's so lovely to know you. xx
nawww... thanks, Ryan! :)
