a few words about miss chelsea elizabeth...

she likes: making kites, dancing in the rain, adventures, little-while friends, letters, whole-leaf tea, crayons, bare feet, jumping in rivers/streams/creeks/waterfalls, language, catching the clock as it changes numbers, sleepovers, trains (big or small), cuddling & waking up before the sun rises, among other random things.

oregon-born, seattle-raised, bellingham-bred and franco-refined, she had moved back to the states from her affairs across the atlantic & now resides in columbia city with french husband & love of her life rémy. they spend most of their time taming the garden, taking care of their three chickens & two cats, and preparing the urban homestead for a new little chick of their own.

kuriosity killed the...


a friend of ours has a cat, and a few months ago she had kittens and they were generous enough to offer us one of them!!! we originally thought it was a girl and named her tiger lily, but after taking her to the vet yesterday to get her vaccinated, we found out that "she" is really a "he"!!

we're still deciding on a new boy name. it's either "risby/ribsy" (yes, based on the way rémy pronounces the beverly cleary character of the same name) or "indiana". we should know by the end of the week.

in the meantime our tiny little boy (he's still under one pound!!!) has been keeping us busy being cute & running around like a crazy ball of energy that never stops moving. i thought i'd share some photos to tide you guys over until you come visit him yourselves!

Indiana is kind of a tight name though. maybe one could be official and the other could be... his alias.
