Music to My Ears

I had the pleasure of interviewing Eric Slick, drummer for Dr. Dog
His chill demeanor and honest answers make for a good read. 

You can check out the interview here


Have a wonderful day.

Books in Bed

Last night, Eric and I turned in a bit earlier than usual.

We lay side-by-side in bed, reading.


Wild at Heart his book of choice; mine The Meaning of Marriage.

(We're not always so studious. I recently spent a bittersweet ten days forcing my lids open in the wee hours of the morning nearly devouring The Hunger Games trilogy. Before that, I enjoyed Bossypants. Tina made me laugh (and blush) every few pages. I'm talking about literally lol'ing. The kind where people in Panera gave me funny looks and my husband kept asking "what?" in a nonchalant way until I read him what's so funny - and then he laughed too, of course.)

A chuckle here, a sigh there. Simultaneously gleaning wisdom from others' lives. A peaceful, connecting experience.


So many of our evenings are brimming with activity right up to the breaking point and then quickly numbed by the TV before trudging off to sleep.

(Ironically, since we no longer have cable, the only show on around this time of night is 30 Rock. Tina is getting more than her fair share of exposure in our home. She and Baldwin have us laughing then, as well).

Activity is wonderful and TV is fun.

But I rather like ending my night with a good book.  Somehow, snuggling up with my honey who is doing the same makes it all the better.


I have a few questions for you, if you are still out there.
- do you read books with (or alongside) your spouse, children or friends?
- in what other simple ways do you create special moments with loved ones?
- what books (fiction and non) made you think, laugh, cry or grow?

Sun Stand Still


Listen to an oh-so-challenging message and meditate on this prayerful song.

Pick One

This bedding (via I still love you)


(or) this print?


Which one should I pick for my southwestern fix?

(Yes, it's been a while. I'm wanting to establish a plan shortly and write about things that make me think, laugh or smile in hopes that you'll do the same. Until then, please enjoy this simple post and have a lovely day!)

Home

Let's continue the schmoopyness of living with the one you love, shall we?



Makes my heart happy!

In fact, I'd gladly display any of the artwork below, inspired by this song from the quirky Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros.

{1, 2, 3, 4}

Alabama Arkansas I do love my Ma and Pa
Not the way that I do love you

Holy moly, me oh my, your the apple of my eye
Girl I've never loved one like you

Man o Man your my best friend I scream it to the nothingness
there ain't nothing that I need...

Home, let me come home
Home is whenever I'm with you
Home, yes I am home
Home is wherever I'm with you

You (my sweet husband)

Earlier today I walked outside to call you. I flipped open my phone and scrolled through a loooong list of recent calls before I got to your name. 

Why hadn't we talked on the phone in so long? 

Oh yeah... I smiled. 
We just spent the whooooole weekend together. Who needs a phone?  

At first this made me sad because it's now Monday and the weekend is over. 

Then it hit me. I get to see you tonight when I come home from work. And tomorrow, too. And the next day and the next until it's once again the weekend and I can set my phone aside and spend a little time with you.

This was a big revelation today. It made my heart swell. 

I just love living with you.

Butterfly Specimen Poster

I am not particularly drawn to butterflies and certainly avoid any clothing or accessories they find themselves fluttering on.

I am, however, attracted to this beautiful print from UO.


The paper appears vintage, as though recently ripped from an old textbook. My mom (who dislikes all butterfly decor) will probably be pained to read that I would love to frame and hang this print in my home. 


What do you think?

*I stand corrected. This bride happens to be wearing a lovely butterfly dress.
