bring on 2010.
New obsession with this one: [song more attractive than lead singer.] I think we should all run around in the warmth of the sun and dance to this... preferably in the ocean... preferably now... Somersaulting into some new go-tos these days, slowly but powerfully. The lips that press back. New Go-To: [you've heard me speak… Continue reading pull their shoulders back.

I do love the holidays. But I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off for the last 48 hours. Still smiling though, not frustrated... just a bit tired. But then it's awesome over-hearing like the one I had this morning that make ridiculousness worth it. I was in Albertson's at… Continue reading they slaughter ’em themselves.
So... Whilst shopping for lovelies online [yes, yes i know... shop local... but some things cannot be found in wyoming... just some things], I admittedly found a lot of preciousness I fell in love with. Didn't buy, of course, but larved. And then I found these... I'm just straight up blown away... If you can't… Continue reading oh wow.
I decided we need to laugh at ourselves more. Or, at least, I need to laugh at myself more. I've been giving myself a hard time for a whole second... but that is a lot less fun than laughing at myself. Laughing at myself because I ordered multiple, multiple Christmas presents online... all in about… Continue reading hardy har har.

I am overwhelmed by the awesomeness of this picture and cannot figure out what… Continue reading twas the best christmas ever.

First off, I received this email from my pops the other day... Awesome. So, I went to the post office the next day and much to my delight, there was a golden ticket indicating that I had a package to pick up. As I rounded the corner to the service counters, I was confronted with… Continue reading “a drinkable memory quilt” or “are you happy?” [couldn’t decide.]
