Introducing Anna…the future lover of all things bookish!
You may have noticed that I’ve been rather quiet as of late and there’s a good reason for that. On May 30th, my husband, Wiggum, and I welcomed a baby girl into our family, Anna Laurel Campbell!
She was considerate enough to wait to be born until after Open Studio Weekend and I will forever be thankful for that.
Yep, her first outfit had a book on it. I’m a big, fat nerd that way.
Because she was born in New York, I couldn’t announce her arrival sooner because there was a 30 revocation period. Now that we’ve made it past that, it’s Anna Time!
Holy Moses, I love this little peanut. As of July 10th, she was approximately 3.62 bone folders long, YBFMY (your bone folder might vary). Yep, I put a bone folder next to her. I’m a big, fat nerd that way.
Teaching at FOBA was a year in the making for me and I was really proud of having been selected as an instructor. My husband and I made the decision that as long as there weren’t any medical considerations, I would attend the conference as planned. Nearly 20 people had signed up for the workshops and I didn’t want to leave them hanging. Thankfully, everything went smoothly (travel aside – oy).
Now I’m back home, trying to understand what my new normal is. I haven’t spent much time in the studio recently and I miss it. I would very much like to continue teaching, but I have to figure out how to fit workshops into my current schedule.
In the meantime, I’m happy just staring at Anna and thinking about how lucky I am. 🙂
