Sunday morning light

Today I am a little heartbroken. My little one started daycare today, so that she will be used to it by the time I go back to work full time, on April 29th.
I am actually happy for her. She will make new friends and have a lot of fun. But it's sad for me to think that time is going by so fast, that she is almost 1 and that I'll get to spend less time with her during the day.
Today when I got back home I kissed her so much she started laughing.
I love her and want the best for her. And I know I need to go to work to be the best possibile mom for her. But I can't help being a little hearthbroken today...

Taking stock - Jan 2015

I like to read the "taking stock" posts on other blogs, I think it's a good way to keep track and remember what's going on in one's life at a certain time.
Here is mine!

Making: sourdough bread. Smells divine.
Cooking:soups. A great way to eat healthier and up our liquid intake.
Drinking: water - lots of it. There is this challenge on The Everygirl, to watch and increase our water intake for the months of January. A doable goal, but one that makes me feel good. And the occasional glass of red wine.
Reading: The Newlyweds by Nell Freudenberger. For now it's - meh. Hope it improves.
Wanting: more vacation!
Playing: London Calling by The Clash, a present for husband from me.
Whishing: to be able to read a book a month this year, but I highly doubt it.
Ejoying: quiet mornings when I wake up before everyone else.
Marveling: that's an easy one: at how fast my little girl grows. It seems like every day she gets a new skill!
Needing: to finally set a date for little girl's Baptism. It's difficoult to make everyone happy.
Wearing: lots of forgotten things from my closet, thanks to the 30 days shop your wardrobe challenge.
Feeling: a bit run down... Holidays are tiring with a small kid, but they really aquire a new meaning...

Shop your wardrobe challenge - day 7.

Day 7 - An accessory you haven't worn in 6 months.

Sweater - random store (4 y.o.)
Skirt - Caractère (3 y.o.)
Tights - Tezenis (2 y.o.)
Boots - Nero Giardini (last year)
Necklace - OVS (5 y.o.)

For this outfit, I picked a necklace I haven't worn in years, probably because it's really a busy one. I actually quite like it, and should wear it more often. Overall the outfit was ok, but the more I wear this sweater the more I think I should let it go to a new house...

Shop your wardrobe challenge - day 5 and 6.

Still on vacation - until tomorrow. Today it's Three Kings Day, which officially marks the end of Christmas time here in Italy. So, it's time to put away the three for another eleven months...

Now, back to the outfits.

Day 5 - A dress or skirt, styled in some way.

Sweater - random store (4 y.o.)
Skirt - Oltre jeans (2 y.o.)
Tights - Tezenis (2 y.o.)
Boots - Nero Giardini (last year)
Necklace - Steph's mom (new)

This was the third outfit I tried, I wouldn't come up with something I liked. It's ok, I guess, but I didn't love it. I don't wear this sweater enough, and don't really know why, may be I just got tired of it. Time to donate? The best part is the necklace, which I bought at the beginning of December but wore here for the first time.

Day 6 - Black (or dark neutral) with something other than white.

Dress - Only (new)
Belt - Conbipel (2 y.o.)
Tights - Tezenis (last year)
Boots - Nero Giardini (last year)
Necklace - Particolari (2 y.o.)

At first I thought of wearing a pair of black pants or my grey jeans with a colored top. But I wanted something more fun, and I came up with this. I think this outfit looks better IRL than in this picture. The dress was bought at the end of november, and I have worn it already on different occasions. I found this belt I haven't worn for a while, which matches perfectly the tights. I also like how these boots look with the black & pink. This outfit is definitely a winner!
