these moments pass and we'll be there

what i've been up to:

- had a quick hot spell last weekend (no air = 93 degrees INSIDE THE HOUSE) so we took off for the coast. found the *absolutely enchanting* small sand beach (as well as yummy veggie burgers at bigfoot's pub & grub)

- working my little butt off in the studio, next week i'll have *lots* to share

- making terrariums with the girls (so far mine's still alive!)

- discovered the green smoothie challenge (via em), gonna give it a try. with four farmers markets within biking distance, why not?!

- did i mention working in my studio? yeah? seriously though, so much fun stuff coming next week. :)

have a wonderful, relaxing holiday weekend!

don't look for love in faces, places, it's in you, that's where you'll find kindness

sometimes i can't tell if i really have the most awesome life ever or if i'm just really good at appreciating the little things. right now i'm loving:

- cherries. CHERRIES!!!!!!! i pretty much od on cherries all summer so i forget how ridiculously good they are when they come back in season. and they're good for you too, my dream food!!!

- emily's life=art week on her colorful, inspiring blog

- the new flight of the conchords album (and this video). they were actually playing across the street from our hotel in minneapolis two days after we left (and of course they're not coming to portland). oh well, next time.

- my grateful journal. it's such a nice way to remember all the lovely things that happened that day, and to end the day on a good note. even if it's just something as simple as "thankful for ibuprofen" :)

- son of rambow (i *love* creative, fun movies!!)

- hanging out with my husband. the last few months have been pretty crazy with traveling, it's been so nice to just be together. (ps - last weekend was our 12 year being together anniversary - !!!! and of course we were 2000 miles apart)

yep, life pretty much rocks.

i don't want to be presumptuous but when i look at you i know your name

just returned from a quick trip to the midwest (two days in des moines, two days in minneapolis, one in ames and one more in des moines - whew!). got to do some of my favorite things: take polaroids out the plane window, cuddle in the hammock with my niece, sister and mom (yes we all fit!), be in iowa in the spring, eat eat eat (adong veggie egg rolls, wallaby's grilled cheese, bali spring rolls, stomping grounds egg salad, punch pizza and town talk diner's adult milkshakes), get together with friends and family, find some vintage goodies and celebrate matt's 32nd birthday with him...

thanks to tina (whose etsy order i hand delivered 1,800 miles away - haha) for letting me know my vintage china collection photo was on sfgirlbybay - !!!

also, big news coming soon (once i get unpacked and back to work). hope you've been able to do some of your favorite things recently :)
