so, it’s extremely hot and humid here in florida and a trip to the very air conditioned craft store was in order. when we arrived, i caught a glimpse of one our favorite magazines: somerset life. i was so excited to see it. why? because i had heard a rumor that my one of my mom’s creative ideas was featured but we’ve both had a hard time actually finding this particular issue for sale. we quickly looked for her idea and there it was. pages 44 + 45, titled creative living idea #26: cozy pocket. we both squealed in delight the way moms and daughters do and it was a great little moment. thank you pam and jenny, for making this happen. super cool.
i spent the entire day yesterday with bff kimmie and her adorable 2 year old baby. kimmie and i have actually known one another since the 7th grade but never really connected until years later in college (she thought i was dense and i thought she was stuck up – funny how judgemental we were as teens). once we connected, we became fast friends and my life has been forever richer because of her. she is, hands down, the silliest woman i know. well into our 20’s we were still making up very stupid skits that only we thought were funny – we’d spend a lot of time laughing without sound which we also thought was very hilarious. a few years ago we were both in LA at her older sister’s house when we were in the middle of one of our silly moments. her sister’s friends looked at us a little confused when kimmie’s sister finally interjected: “oh don’t pay any attention to them. they have their own silly language.” it’s true. we do. and i love it.
more soon from florida. i am feeling totally refreshed and with perspective the way that traveling gives us – i feel so far from my life (in a good way). i’m also spending so much time with families – something that i just don’t get enough of back home. i keep having visions of me as a mom, john as a dad, and how that would look like for us: totally dreaming here. i have some great news to share when i get home, too. totally excited. xoxo
