Andrea- my dear. You have a way of making this life seem more fragile, more rich, more genuine, more wholesome and more wonderful! What a great post! Let's hang out in real life, k? Email me and we can go to lunch.

Em said...

I got a shout out, wahoo! I love it!

Robin said...

This is a great list. I actually planned on making a list just like this for my 100th post (which was yesterday) but I didn't swing it. Now I feel bad, is there still time for me? Maybe I will still do one.

P.S. I love your oil paintings from your previous post.

tiffany said...

Ali Flegal said...

I don't know why, but I feel smarter after I read your blog. You have a beautiful way with words.

on a separate note, you know the black flips i posted the other day. thought you might like to know they are from zara and they were totally inexpensive, even for a student like me :)

Sarah said...
