I'm a native Oregonian. After an eight year sojourn in California, my little family and I returned to my home state a little less than a year ago. I'd forgotten that being surrounded by rivers, mountains, and trees feels so natural to me. I'm more relaxed, more peaceful, more at home here. Perhaps I needed that time down south to discover what I really want, to verbalize my exact priorities, to completely envision my new lifestyle. And now as the boys and I meander through our daily routine, so often I stop and breathe deeply, thinking I am living it.
So when I found this green tank on sale at Old Navy, and a few days later found freezer paper next to the aluminum foil at the grocery store, I knew what would happen. It's an idea that percolated in my mind when I stocked up on long sleeve tees last Fall. But summer says it all. Bring on the green. Bring on the golden sunshine. Welcome home, Mama.
Staying at home - the combination of living on a budget and having more time for projects - has made me more resourceful. So when I hada perfectly cut opposite of my original stencil I commandeered one of Erick's white tees and added a little design to the back of his broad shoulder. He's not a native, but I'll let that slide for now.
