outfit of the day(bird): hello!




shirt~ hand-me-down from little sister, kristin
belt~ F21
leggings~ Target
boots~ vintage, thrifted

hi everyone! i've missed you! i just wanted to write a quick post to say hello. we are doing really great here! baby ben is healthy and happy and getting chubbier every day (and who doesn't love a chubby baby!?) mimi is still learning to live with this new little human that we have brought into her life but it is quite sweet to see her with her baby brother. she is going to grow to be an amazing big sister, i just know it. and jim and i are adjusting to life as parents of two. it is crazy and awesome and busy and hard and amazing and tiring and i love it. i just adore my little family. thank you all so so much for your well wishes and congratulations!

i am excited to get back into blogging, although i must admit i was not all that excited to take outfit photos. i am sorely in need of a haircut (getting one next week!), i still have quite a few pounds to lose (this will take some time...) and i am still in my comfy clothes (so you will be sure to see a lot of leggings and tunics from me in the next few weeks). please bear with me! i will get back into the swing of things soon enough!

i would like to give a little shout out to megan bird. she has done such an amazing job (wo)manning the blog on her own these past few weeks and i cannot thank her enough. no way i could have kept up the blog on my own the way she has done. thank you thank you thank you, megan! you rock!

i hope you all have a great day!

xoxo, nora bird

  4. Nora, such a great surprise to see you this morning. God bless you pulling this adorable look together today and finding time to blog with an infant and toddler, that's pretty amazing. Loving your hair longer although I know you like it short, your bangs frame your face so beautifully. You and Megan both look great with bangs. Maybe I will try the fringe again someday, you never know. You look gorgeous as ever. dawn suitcase vignettes xo
