a little break

I wish it looked like this outside.
Since the book I am reading is SO good and I am enjoying the Olympics so much, I think I will absent myself another week and be blissfully unaware of internet goings on.

Most of the time when I write on this blog it is about trivial things and so I don't worry about my inability to write well. But sometimes, like today I wish I could be more eloquent. 

For the past few months I have read so many stories on blogs and in the news about sick children, particularly infants. Some who I know, and most I don't but all who have made me profoundly grateful for a healthy baby. I think about these people all day, hoping for them. I suppose that prayers from strangers are just as useful. I hope they are.

I hope with all my heart that Weston and Lulu will recover quickly and that miracles like Bronson will happen for many. I think so often of Natalie and how courageous she is, all these mothers are tremendous humans I can't even begin to imagine what they have been through.

I feel so lucky to live in a time of extraordinary medical care, and although we have not needed it we are humbled to have it available to us should the need arise. And so we will continue to be hopeful for those who need it, and grateful for what we have.

If you are sick, make sure it isn't something worse, get better and steer clear of the little ones.

dear internet friends

Do you ever find yourself completely in love with an item that is both prohibitively expensive and completely illusive (and also completely unnecessary?) This gorgeous and functional bag is impossible to find (and for me pretty much impossible to afford.)

Everywhere I look used to sell it for a ridiculous price! I found someone auctioning it on Ebay for $500, no thank you. So I turn to you dear internet friends, does anyone know where to find this bag? And if so do you know where to find it on sale?

Many thanks,

red fred bodini

As I am opening mind and heart to this holiday of love, I think that this design from Red Fred Bodini would be an excellent accessory to show my new fond feelings for St. Valentine.

You can get it on men's shirts, women's shirts, hoodies, onsies and my favorite a tote bag. Check our their store here, and go to their jolly blog here. Happy weekend everybody!

post poacher

I had to poach this post from Mariannes blog, how cute are my little reds?!

I hate valentines day

but this year I think an attitude change is in order. As I perused the internet I found a few things that inspired me to give cupid one more chance.

2. Repurposed Instant Film Cards from Creature Comforts
3. Roll and Tumble Press Gig-Love Print
4. Viva El Valentino Cards from Yee Haw Press

I also love this cake, and these cakes too! So here's to my new found optimism, and here's to a great Valentines day!
