Gorgeous Design Files + Baby Kisses

Hello everyone! I've been totally absorbed in my e-course, Blog Boss, at the moment so I'm sorry if I'm not that active on the blog at the moment. Between teaching, one-on-one blog business consultations via Skype and redecorating some rooms in my home - well I've been busy! Plus I take care of my baby full-time and am busy with other work projects too. I have some great things coming up for 2015, including the redesign of decor8 AND a brand new logo. Grummet-livinghero

It's very exciting to be so busy, especially doing things that fuel me and make life sweeter. My baby boy is really thriving too, which makes me so proud. He is a little over 8 months old and tonight he did something for the first time that was so completely precious that I had tears of joy streaming down my face. I was putting him to bed and I asked him for a kiss. I usually just say "Kiss" or "Kiss mama" and he opens his mouth wide and dives in and plants a wet kiss (mouth open) on my face, somewhere around my mouth. Well tonight it was different. He did that, but then he kept giving me kisses and kisses and more kisses, even moving his little lips trying to make a kissy face... Holding both sides of my face in his little pudgy hands with his bright blue eyes gazing into mine with such joy... And the more he gave me the more he giggled and then I started giggling and we collapsed on the bed in hysterics as he kept kissing me more and more. Tears were streaming down my face because it was this perfect moment when you realize your baby is developing a real personality and is really starting to understand you and your humor and words and wow, it was magic to bond with him like that. I just had to share. He's so darling.

Aren't the photos in this post divine? I've been pinning like crazy from the new Design Files blog. I'm so impressed by what Lucy has done to revamp her site. Looks gorgeous. She is such an inspirational blogger. I love that it's so easy now to find all of her beautifully photographed Australian home stories. Whenever I look at pictures of Australia I always think I COULD TOTALLY LIVE THERE. Don't you?
