While Mama Is Away

One of the greatest benefits of technology is that I can receive these little gifts from home while I'm away.

I'll be boarding the first of a few flights home in just a couple hours. I'm looking forward to getting back into the routine of home and family (with lots of hugs + kisses + love) and am especially looking forward to getting some pumpkins.

    Beautiful photos! My hubby is away at the moment so he has been receiving similar 'snippets from home' photos! They are crying out to be made in to a LO!

    Safe travels! I know that "coming home" feeling. Loving + snuggling + nesting. It's the best.

    it's funny... when you first went to Greece I was so excited for you and for the last few days, after reading your tweets, I was hoping you'd get to go home soon!! Seemed like a long time to be away - I bet you'll be happy to get all the hugs, kisses and love - and the pumpkins will be cool too!

    I cracked up when I saw Simon's table. We also have the giant Lego table. Have a safe trip home!

    LOVE these (especially, the Lego line-up...have seen that a bit around these parts, too). Have a great trip home (it's supposed to be AWESOME weather in the next week or so, too)!

    Too cute! I have to ask about the lego table! Are those plates attached to the table? My boys are obsessed with legos right now and I'm trying to come up with a table they can play on without losing the pieces all over the floor. Thanks!

    My son is a huge lego fan and I just love the set up you have for Simon. Are the grey squares permanent? Could you share how you store/sort his legos? I'm struggling with keeping control over the lego clutter!

    Great pictures! I have a question about the Lego setup. Did you attach the large square lego platforms to the shelves? If yes, how? Like many others we struggle with the lego storage issue. Have a safe trip back!

    Hi ali.
    Your kids are just the cutest! :)
    It was so nice meeting you in Greece. I really enjoyed your class, hanging out, explore, "hunt and gather" :).
    hope we meet again one day.

    Hope your trip home was uneventful and easy. Thanks for all the great Greece memories. And, thanks to your class, I'm scrapping on the road here in Bulgaria! Bob says hi.

    Random question....Love the blog, the products, the amazing talent!!! Also love the countertops in your kitchen. Do tell. Are they wood? Formica that looks like wood? Solid surface? I have white cupboards myself and looking for new countertops. Please advise....and post photos of Greece soon!!After you hug your kids twenty thousand times that is. :)
