Eve and Luke came along with me on my vintage hunting trip for @luneshop yesterday. They usually do this once or twice a week with mixed results. In some ways it's been a challenge keeping Lune Vintage afloat while being a parent of two. When Luke was born I felt the most motivated I had in my whole life. I guess it was a real life change to become a mom, and I knew it was important to do my best in this new role while still nourishing my individuality. We got a lot done in those years when we were a family of 3. If you've read the Lune Blog since those days you'll know what I mean. It was a good time filled with excitement, a lot of work, and a mixed bag of successes and failures. After Eve was born my perspective changed. I felt stretched and thin. There wasn't enough of me to go around, and I had come to a place where I knew who I was as an individual and didn't feel threatened by motherhood. What I needed was space, freedom and a chance to embrace this life instead of steam rolling over it. It was time to stop and smell the flowers invest in travel and experiences we could all share equally.
The pictures I'm sharing today are from yesterday just before supper. I bought this handmade flopsy bunny at the MCC for $1. She had a clown like dress and bloomers, but I thought she looked best au natural. She's just the right size for Eve's old metal highchair and stroller (also second or third hand finds). Eve named her "Free" which I think might actually translate to "Three" in toddler speak, but we're going with the first.
