"B, should I spend my birthday money on these?"

"Sleep on it.  And if you still love 'em tomorrow, then get 'em."

Pretty generous advice from a guy who conscientiously works to dissuade my shoe-buying habit.

it's my party

I didn't hesitate for a second in my giddy request for a third coat. It's my birthday week and I can cry/paint my nails any way I want.  


Adopt the pace of nature; her secret is patience.

[Thank you Mama, your perspective is lovingly wise.]

Don't tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you traveled.

antoine de saint-exupéry

You alone will have the stars as no one else has them. In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night. You - only you - will have stars that can laugh.

My beautiful friend Kendal read this book to her first grade class.  She was so great to capture this darling face and make my day week.
