About Me

My photo
My name is Robin. I live to create - anything I can do with my hands and my head. I'm a messy creator - an imperfect creator who loves beauty and aesthetic with a real edge. This isn't a blog about perfection - its a blog about the beauty in real life - the small triumphs and epic failures - trying to get homework done with a tired 5 year old after a 12 hour day and still getting a smidge of weaving in before the crash. Figuring out what the dream is when you finally realize its not the house and the car. Its about not letting the years get the best of you and cherishing all that you love in life. Mostly its just a place for me to put all the things that I love and that inspire me.

Little Kenji bean

Today we went to visit Allie and Kenji in the hospital. I loved holding Kenji. He is the most beautiful little thing ever. And his little head is so soft. He looks so cute with Brian, he looks like a little doll he is so perfect!
I love the picture with Emi his big sister helping to feed the baby! She is adorable!
Tomorrow is the big day! We pick him up from the hospital. Oh I hope he loves us, because we love him so much already. Funny I haven't cried yet, I think because I am running on adrenalin right now. I think once we get home and settled in it will hit me. It feels strangely like getting married did! Waiting and waiting for that big day and keeping emotions and nerves at bay and then after everything has happened and you have some quiet time it dawns on you, my whole life is different in such a wonderful way.
Oh my gosh it is going to be a wonderful and interesting summer for sure!


  1. I don't think I will ever not get emotional hearing everyone's adoption journey. Such a beautiful family!!!! I hope we can get together as soon as you guys all get settled in. Make sure to take plenty of time to yourselves as a family!!!!!! Yippeeeeeee!!! I will continue to keep everyone in my prayers. I know this is a very difficult time for Allie and her family. My love goes out to them too--sending cyber hugs!!!

  2. Oh my gosh...he is adorable!!! I can't wait to see more pictures. What a little doll :)
    We are so excited for you :)

  3. Robin & Brian,

    Seeing Kenji and the two of you just gives me goose bumps and a lump in my throat. You all have been blessed with such a beautiful gift. His big sister is adorable too. Congrats on your precious baby. I will never forget the no sleep days and nights....enjoy them all! :)
    Love, Karin
