children do that.

It rained a lot today,
but the sun shone in my soul.

today's loves:

the shops on Hawthorne.

an entire double sided 6x3 foot display of ribbon.

a coffee shop with Powell's books attached.

a steaming cup of joe.

my Asher in all of his glory.

and quite possibly,
our last coffee-shop-rendezvous
before her life becomes fuller than she could ever imagine,
and bestows upon her huge heapings of love
that will never cease.
It's the sort of love that makes your heart so full,
that it flows over,
changing the way you see everything else.

enormous. unconditional, compassion-seeping. love.

I'm sitting here on the computer with Sam on my lap. I told him you are Daddy's sister, Cassie. I pointed you out in the above picture. He said, "No, that is Amber." I think it is so cute that he can see how much you and Amber look alike. Anyway, just wanted to share that with you.

Such a sweet post!!!

I was wondering if a stranger let you take a picture of her belly...glad to find out it was Shannon. So cute. Great pictures and sentiments. Good luck to Shannon!

Britt- that is so funny that Sam thinks we are eachother. Silly boy. Wish I was nearer and he knew me better!


Ambs- Ha! No stranger. Just Shan's sweet baby belly. :)

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
