1: We still have some of these left! 2: I love it when Alice surprises me with a big hug or kiss during a selfie moment. Such a genuine smile, such genuine love.
3: We started using a professional photographer for all of our Hello Holiday product shots. Justin Limoges did all the photos for my book (coming May 2014), and we’re so grateful to have him in charge of our website photos now too. (This is our Plaid to Meet You sweater.) 4: This brow moment brought to you by the incomparable genius Dustin Hajek.
5: I finally installed a lower rod in Alice’s closet to her great delight. 6: Alice’s photo of the day.
7: Sarah and I got asked to go livetweet the final dress rehearsal for Opera Omaha’s Carmen last week. We had SUCH a blast and brought in secret coffee and pie. I love opera and Omaha has a fantastic organization here that plays such an influential role in our creative/performing arts landscape. Another thing I LOVE about Omaha. 8: Live-texting while live-tweeting.
9: Sitting in a Rebecca Forsyth set before the Justice For Our Neighbors-Nebraska enVISION benefit. 10: I’ve been trying out a new ride! It’s a 2001 Chrysler 300 that used to belong to the Omaha Symphony. I would be thrilled for mere working heat and headlights, but the four doors (and remote lock!) just put it over the top of luxury.
11: Trick-or-treating with my little bat. 12: Alice and her rat fascinated with a bonfire at a family farm party.
13: Big soda and thank-you notes. Reminder to write a thank-you note if you haven’t in a while. 14: The perfect Saturday morning.
15: More hair setting in the chair of one Ms. Forsyth at Bungalow 8, generally understood of course to be the best stylist in the world at the best salon in Omaha. 16: Coffee table.
17: The most bathroom of bathroom selfies. Dress borrowed from Sarah. She’s expecting her first child in February and I am basically helping myself to anything in her pre-pregnancy wardrobe at this point. 18: When I got to that last sentence I had tears. Yes. This. Exactly.

Alice and I draw together every night. This one is me and her, and she colored herself in and drew “Daddy when he was a baby” inside the frame, and me and Turbo the Cat on the bottom standing on rugs.

we had planned to go on a leaf walk tonight, thought about stopping in at the dundee gallery or using a gift card at b&g tasty foods, but a whole day of torrential rain (november rain, right?) led us to opt for a night closer to the comforts (and radiated heat) of home at the apartment. we got cinnamon bread from the bakery across the street for banana pecan french toast, danced, and took it easy.
read e-mail from great-grandma.
and had a bedtime phone chat with grandpa.
