new arrivals and miles of bias tape

May 27th, 2008

Big long weekend. Tara sent news of the arrival of her baby, Julian. Apparently he came out on cinco de mayo. He is a cutie. I can completely relate to taking a little while to come out of hiding long enough to tell people about the new arrival. We had a busy weekend that began […]
