Quicker than Knitting a Baby Blanket

How cute are these little knit bears? I need to learn to crochet. I also need to learn to more readily try new things!

Loving G.Love

One of my favorites, G. Love, just released a new album that includes a cover of a favorite song, Paul Simon's 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover. Things get deliciously bluegrass at minute 3.

Relix - Audio - Artist Exclusives - G. Love "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover"

Both G. Love and this song bring back sunny summertime memories with favorite friends. What a happy Tuesday surprise! I will definitely be at Antone's on March 25th!

Pearl's Big Day

This is a picture of me with my baby sister, Pearl. OK, her name is really Carrie. She is magic and sparkles and smiles all wrapped up in a leopard print tutu. Break a leg, pretty gypsy! gold door knobs: a little illeism for the lady.

Lone Star Laquer

Ok, yes, that girl looks crazy, but how cute is the new OPI Texas Collection?!? I'm thinking "Big Hair... Big Nails" for Barbie fingers and "Austin-tatious Turquoise" for mermaid toes!

Handsome Boy

This is Benjamin. I adore him. His mama tried flossing his teeth for the first time today, and he was quite cooperative. When she was done, he looked in the mirror and said, "Handsome boy." Brilliant child.

My Symphony

To live content with small means;
To seek elegance rather than luxury,
refinement rather than fashion;
To be worthy, not respectable,
wealthy, not rich;
To study hard, think quietly,
talk gently, act frankly;
To listen to stars and birds,
to babes and sages with open heart;
To bear all cheerfully,
do all bravely,
Await occasions, hurry never;
To let the spiritual, unbidden, and unconscious,
grow up through the common--
This is to be my symphony.

~William Channing
