Dylan started his first day of preschool on Wednesday and to say it has been bittersweet is an understatement. I bad been talking up the process of going to school for a couple weeks now with Dylan and we've even been reading some "going to preschool" books too I think have been getting him excited (this one is his fave). This is Dylan's first time outside of the home ever and while he's always been a very social boy who's taken to different surroundings surprisingly well, I undoubtedly had my worries. Would he be ok being left in the classroom? Would he eat his food without anyone there helping him? Would he be ok using the potty (he's been potty trained for about 3 months now but is picky about who takes him to the potty)? Would he go down for his nap? Maybe it was the pregnancy hormones, but I was a ball of nerves going into the week.

|Decorating our dresser :: adding colorful DIY paper flowers and these two ceramic bird pieces from HMK.|
During my first pregnancy, I went into nesting mode around this same time and started crafting away. For the dresser, I wanted to add a bit of color to it so I ended up making these paper flower poppies that I added off to the side. I don't have a very good track record at keeping real plants alive so paper plants have since been my go-to. For this second pregnancy, I've been on the hunt for little accents that I can add to our place here and there. When I noticed these white ceramic decorations the other day at HMK, I knew that they'd be the perfect subtle addition to our dresser. I love having a few of my favorite jewelry pieces out on display and these birds tie in perfectly with the floral theme of the flowers while still maintaining the simple, modern aesthetic (just as Adrian likes!).
