Carry On.



The lyrics of FUN's song Carry On are truly touching. For whatever reason, the song has inspired me to write this post about one of my greatest accomplishments...

Birthday Girl.

Well, dearest darlings. My birthday is coming just around the bend.

I think I've said before that my lovely husband is awesome at a WHOLE lot of stuff, but gift giving isn't quite his cup of tea. I have gotten pretty good at hinting, sending emails with links, and giving LONG lists of things he "has permission" to buy me. Here is a little list I've put together, just to get the ball à rollin...


1. Converse Jack Purcell 
2. C'est Nous, print.
3. Chanel.
4. Best looking water bottle, EVER.
5. Lama. (I've wanted this box for like 3 years now. JUST GET IT ALREADY, Tony!)
6. Nora Ephron, I Remember Nothing. Book.
7. Beautiful, classic bag.

The End of Nursing.

Let me start this post by saying, nursing has been (by far) one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I have loved every single minute of it. I am so proud to have nursed Easton until now (18mo) and I wouldn't change ONE single second of our special time together. 

I have nourished Easton's little body from birth. I have given him comfort and watched him grow from the milk I have created. The transition from growing that little baby in my own body to nourishing him from my own body was amazing and something that I will cherish forever.

When we were one month away from Easton's first birthday I couldn't believe I [had] to stop nursing E in just one month. With tears streaming down my face I said to Tony, "he's such a baby, still!" Tony, with all the love in his heart said, "Rebecca, this is between you and Easton. You get to breast feed as long as it's right for the both of you." It was such an amazing statement. His support propelled me into the next six months of nursing my baby into a thriving toddler. I am so thankful to my husband...

Easton and I are (now) officially done with that phase of our mama-son relationship. We are moving on to new and exciting bonding rituals, and respectively cherishing our old way. It has been an incredible ride. I am truly amazed at what a beautiful journey it has been.

so you've noticed I've been busy, eh? here's why.



I have had the pleasure of working with a pretty amazing non-profit. I have been hired to manage and write their blog, create their Press Kit, and aid in brand consulting. It has been a really fun experience and I am so proud to be a part of their incredible service to victims of sexual assault.

I thought I'd share a brief description of the work The Grateful Garment Project is doing. If you are inspired to help in any way (financial contribution, arranging a speaking engagement, or donating items) please contact me at refrascone@gmail.com.

Portrait.



















This week was busy busy busy. Tony was swamped with work and couldn't be home before Easton's bed time once this week. Then, he went to a work conference over the weekend. But things for Easton and I were pretty much routine. He didn't sleep very well but I suppose that's pretty routine, too.

Easton has been saying "sentences" before he says "mommy," now. So he'll go- "bllaaa, yaaa, yaaa yyaa wahhhh, MOMMY!" And he'll do this twelve times in a row before he decides I've answered all of his questions or responded sufficiently. The word "cracker" which was once "CRRRACCKKK" has turned into "Ckaa Ckaa," so that's special. Easton has been singing a lot this week. His lyrics are always baby babble but the melody is perfect tune of the "ABC's" song and "Old McDonald Has a Farm" (Ee I Ee I Oh). Hearing him sing is probably my favorite thing EVER. It's so magical.

























A portrait of Easton once a week, every week in 2013. 

Also, this week he patted a Crocodile. No big deal.
