As much as I love this apartment, I can’t wait to start making our new home in the country. I can’t wait to take all the things I’ve gathered over the years and spread them through out each little room. Our beautiful wedding china will finally be unpacked from the boxes that have been stacked in the closet, and given a home in our freshly milk-painted china cabinet. The china cabinet that was the first piece of furniture that my parents bought together. Maisy Jane’s newly acquired belongings, from tiny moccs and my old dresses, to vintage hankerchiefs and a 70s ceramic tea set will all be placed lovingly in her sunshine-colored room.
Spring will be busy and beautiful, with the arrival of our girl and the planting of the vegetable garden that will nourish our family. Our little home will be buzzing with new life. I’m already imagining sitting on the front porch in a rocking chair, feeding Maisy and watching the sun come up over the lush green fields across the road.
Tim and I are going to put so much love into this itty bitty homestead. And Maisy Jane will make our world go round. Baby girl, I can’t wait to show you how magical this world can be. And I trust that you’ll return the favor.

Most movies are made by men, it’s totally natural that they’re going to present their worldview, so we’re trying to find more women who are writers and directors who are expressing their worldview. Did you see Tiny Furniture? Lena Dunham wrote, directed, and starred in it; she’s 23, and it is just amazing. She walks around in her underwear for the whole movie; it’s harsh. She’s the subject, she’s not the object, and it’s beautiful—that’s the kind of thing we need more of.”—Natalie Portman (via feministfilm)
