If you can believe it, I’ve been working on our 2016 calendar for the past few weeks, and I’m aiming to have it completed by the end of this month. I will use December for proofing and making minor adjustments, if everything goes according to plan. I’ve also been working on some customizable  holiday cards & birth announcements for Postable (I’ll share them here tomorrow!), a holiday card to send to our stockists, and plans for the next few months of design projects & product development.

While I work, I often listen to podcasts, and I wanted to share a few of my favorites.

Podcast Round-up From Everything Little Miss

  1. MOM & DAD ARE FIGHTING: Hosts Allison Benedikt & Dan Kois discuss parenting news and weigh in with their opinions. At the start of each episode, they discuss their parenting wins and fails, which is amusing and a great reminder that you can be a good parent even if you have some parenting failures.
  2. THE MOTH: This podcast features stories told live at Moth events like The Moth Mainstage and StorySLAMs. At these events, people tell true stories in front of an audience of strangers without using notes. Some of the stories are sad, many are funny, and they’re all told beautifully.
  3. 99% INVISIBLE: This is a show about architecture, design, and other things that are seemingly invisible but are parts of our daily lives. Roman Mars hosts the show, and it has covered everything from the legality of pinball machines in Oakland to the design of the Oija board to the prevalence of “duplitecture” (knock-off architecture) in China.
  4. FREAKONOMICS RADIO: Hosted by Stephen Dubner, this weekly show tackles all sorts of topics from an economic point-of-view. For Halloween, they did an episode about vampires! It’s a fun podcast, and my almost-two-year-old (22 months) absolutely loves their theme-song. He actually requests the Freakonomics podcast, so that’s a pretty great endorsement.

We recently visited the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, WA. My 21 month old really liked the zebras, and I can’t say I blame him! They’re such beautiful animals, and I keep thinking about their stripes. I’ve been oohing and ahhing over photos. It seemed like it was about time I just shared some that I’m loving!

The babies seem incredibly sweet. Their legs are so long and their manes are so ridiculously fluffy! I could look at them all day.
