Spring

Signs of Spring in Our Home:
-the peeps have arrived (and mine are unwrapped and waiting on top of the refrigerator while they come to a proper “crisp”)
-bunny hats on babies
-fresh tulips on the coffee table
-unveiling the Easter kitchen towels and rug
-replacing the black toss pillows with the floral ones…they make me smile

It Doesn’t Get Any Better…

You know what’s a Wonderful Thing? The Dollar Section at Target.
You know what’s equally wonderful? Finding THIS in that dollar section:That’s right, folks. They’re animal crackers. But, not just any animal crackers. They’re Honey-I-Shrunk-the-Animal Crackers. As if animal crackers weren’t good enough, they’re even better. They’re the most miniscule animal crackers you’ve ever seen, but each miraculously still maintaining every bit of detail as its respective predecessor. Minis are delicious. And yes, I still save the cats for last, but in this case, they’re kittens. Oh, and they’re impossible for Baby to choke on.
I’m not enjoying the small things. I’m childishly amused by them.

SPC: [Blue, Week 4], Ink on My Fingers

I believe in writing letters–not e-mails, not texts–but hand-written letters.
I believe in fine stationery.
I believe in a good “muddy” gel pen with ink that slides onto paper like butter.
I believe in asking “Are there any cuter stamps than this?” at the post office.
I believe in searching for the perfect address label.
I believe in decorating the envelope with colored pencils.
I believe in “extra postage required.”
I believe in teaching children to write a proper “Thank You.”
I believe in “Love,” over “Best Regards,”
I believe in Ink on My Fingers.
