I love these with a passion. GetReadySetGo is a fabulous little Etsy shop that "upcycles" old, vintage touristers and makes them your own with funky little art. I want all three of these! I imagine using them in Europe, taking the train somewhere fabulous. Wearing a beret. Sigh...

You were right. Twilight is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. It's not too fanciful (which I may have said), it isn't just for tweens (clearly by all the soccer moms I've seen reading it) and I was missing out on something special (which I may have said the opposite during a heated discussion on books worthy of my time). I can't put it down. I read 300 pages in one sitting. I have 150 pages to go and I don't want it to end. I've already convinced Guy that he HAS to watch the movie with me immediately when I'm done with book.
So there. I'm offically on the bandwagon and admittedly sad that I'm so late to the party. Actually makes me question my Harry Potter boycott of '07 and '08.

I'm home tomorrow... Home Sweet Home. San Francisco has treated me well but there's no place like home.
Dave Matthews alone is a draw for me but Pearl Jam, Ben Harper, The Dead Winter (Jack White's new band - amazing), and Kings of Leon (your sex is on fire!). W-H-O-A. See you in Austin boys.

I have stylish (and beautiful!) friends.
She was the most beautiful bride.

Ahh. Sweet relief. We made it into the show in time, saw all of Dave's show, and were happy again. (They were AMAZING, as always.)

My brothers and I. I think this was in North Carolina. Loving the knee high socks and Garfield comforter.
Probably one of my top five favorite pictures. North Carolina, my brother and I, dancing. Does it get any better?
I have many more to share but I'll spread them over many posts. They're too special to let more than a few shine at once.

It's been a rough go of it today. Counting down the hours. And as a true sign of affection, Guy offered to run with me after work because he knows that's how I let off steam best. And he isn't a runner. At all. Now that's true love.

Oh my gosh, Oh my gosh, Oh my gosh! How gorgeous are these little beauties?! Adorable blogger Christina, from Down and Out Chic, had a drawing last week for these unbelieveably beautiful pair of earrings by Beth Cyr (check her etsy shop out immediately - amazingly talented!) and I actually won. I NEVER WIN.
Crazy thing. I started blogging because I needed a creative outlet. I never thought it would turn into this community of friends. I'm surrounded by kind, talented, amazing people that inspire me everyday. So thank you Beth and Christina - and the hundreds of others of you that have become part of my daily life.

Guy and I made it home safely and although we're happy to be home I still wish I was with this adorable twosome. Some highlights from the weekend:
- Playing PIG with my brother and Guy... and losing three times.

I'm loving my friend Collins' jewelry and wishing I could buy it all! Since I can't - I'm letting you know of her beautiful work. Many different styles and stones. They make lovely little gifts although I've given more to myself than anyone else! Visit her Etsy shop here.

so, thinking more about this, i thought i would share just a few songs and what they remind me of. first up is DMB - Before These Crowded Streets album. without fail, anytime i hear a song off this album, i'm taken back to my 10th grade orchestra trip to Europe. i think i bought the CD right before we left so it was the soundtrack of that week. happy memory indeed.
and we're back to dave. you'll quickly find that from a young age, thanks to my older brother's cd collection, that i developed a true love for dave matthews. where are you going reminds me of a hard time in my life... where i had just graduated college, ended a 5 year relationship, and moved across the country by myself to start a new. it was the most difficult yet rewarding time in my life.
one of my favorite memories of my dad is dancing on his feet. it was my favorite thing to do. i would beg every night to step on his slippered feet and dance in the kitchen. and he let me every time. we would dance to many things, often times his singing, but georgia on my mind is the song that can bring this lovely memory back in an instant.
