out of the womb.

The first hour started perfectly with my grandma spinning her finger in a circle (like a party favor) singing 'happy birthday to you, happy birthday...'

I heard this song this morning, which seems appropriate for today.

I believe love will always surround you
Brave as a bear with a heart rare and true
But if you are scared, if you are blue
I have prepared this small song for you:

Sweet Esme! Sweet Esme!
Oh, oh, oh!

Thank you, joanna for my small song.

as our affair grows older

This is the cutest anniversary celebration. They rented a cabin up north where they brought all their creative endeavors to work on, while celebrating their so many years together. I really wanted to go to Saugatuk and stay in a lil' cabin for my birthday. but even a lil' tent in the woods so we can see the stars would be beautiful. Or even this bell jar with a sparkler. :) or really just a lovenote. when you think about it, small gestures can swell up bigger than the grandiose ones.

and this is the surprise she woke up to on her birthday! what a sweet thing. i love so many things on her blog.

see more here.

this song is amazing. most otis is..

futon byebye

i know that having a futon as a pull-out bed is nice for guests, but it's not comfortable anyways. I think I would rather just replace it with this loveseat.

* found on Design is mine.

trading spaces

Can I trade the black chair in my house for the black one in Brick House's house? I will take the amazing secretary she found on craigslist too... the one I'm pining over.

adding color

I always thought making a collage of paint samples was a nice way to add color to a room. and i just saw that someone else agrees with me on this: Apartment Therapy. I think I may try it, but with a similar color scheme. maybe yellows and greens. or yellow and cyan.

small faces

We went camping last weekend in Honore, for our annual get-away. I would probably take more photos if sand weren't the death of my camera, but you will have to take my word for it... it was beautiful. swimming in warm waters, jumping off piers, laying in tents, floating down rivers... it makes me wonder why we come home again.

i did a portrait of all of us, but they are so small when i post them all together...
