I’d be really creeped out these would either secretly come to life and turn against me OR be replaced by human statues that would scare the crap out of me one day

I am determined not to have the whole “men have to be tough” stereotype imposed on my son, either by me accidentally or by other relatives. He actually got a book that featured the phrase “brave boy” towards the end (a phrase that had absolutely nothing to do with the plot, and was accompanied by “pink princess” for a girl) and I crossed it out.

Visiting a dear friend and her baby boy at her beautiful farm house (at Tempel Farms)

I want to live in a white farm house with green shutters someday. Probably not going to happen (hey, got to take taxes, utilities, ease of commute, and good schools into account first, right?) but that’s the dream.

Sidenote: kudos to you for visiting your new-mom friend.

It’s hard enough making friends as an adult (seriously, why did all mine move elsewhere after college?!) without the added social isolation of having a young child. #speakingfromexperience #pplonlytalkontheinternetsandthroughtxts

Animal tea party, 1903-1910 (since there is a teddy bear present, a hot fad that debuted in 1903, it couldn’t have been earlier) (via)

I never had a tea party with such illustrious (and numerous) guests when I was younger.

Totally jealous.

I love little lanes and back alleyways. Maybe because Boston has plenty of its own, just like other old cities all over the world.

17th-century Manor House, Oxfordshire, England, property of Philip Mould, art dealer and broadcaster.

Can I get a mini version of this? Mildly obsessed with living in an old stone house some day (and disregarding the numerous, expensive problems inherent in an old dwelling…).

  • GIRL ONE: OMG how are you?
  • GIRL TWO: Oh, hi, I'm fi-- you know what, actually, I'm a miserable sack of shit, to be honest.

Trafalgar Square, maybe?
