When I was in elementary school & junior high, I’d be the one splurging on the mega gel pen set & the super jumbo pack of crayons (and arranging them according to color:) I still can spend an hour in the art store just looking at paper, stamps, & pens.  I think I finally found my soulmate art supply store – theHach, a mother & daughter duo based in Canada. Here are a few of my favorites.

Happy Friday! Meet Tommy!

Happy Friday! This weekend two of our friends are coming to visit from Boston!  They are getting in late tonight so we are going to share a fancy bottle of wine. Hopefully I can put together a platter that looks as good as this to go with it!

Fostering update!  Our sweet first foster cat Maya was adopted last Friday! It was great news but Tim & I were very sad to see her go.  Tim even said that when they picked her up and put her in the carrier on the couch, she seemed to be rocking it back and forth like she was planning a stealth escape. Anyways, we’re on to the next one – meet Tommy!
When we first met Tommy he was quite the stinker, but after two baths he’s cuddle approved.  He’s so cute with his little mustache and loves to be held like a baby. He’s definitely growing on us.  If you are interested in meeting Tommy, please feel free to email me at Thanks and happy weekend!! 

no cavity club

Growing up, my brothers & I always went to the dentist together.  We’d be in the playroom after our appointments and as soon as one of us walked in we’d all ask “Cavity club?!”.  Flash forward 20 years and I still get super excited to tell someone “No cavity club!”.

Missed Connections

Ever meet someone and wished you had said something? Sophie Blackall has been trying to re-connect those people through her Missed Connections blog, kind of like a modern day Sleepless in Seattle.  She illustrates Missed Connections found on websites.  Her illustrations are amazing, you might recognize her work from the newest NYC subway illustration .  Anyways, check out her amazing blog – who knows maybe one is about you 🙂

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!! Tonight, Tim & I are going to try to catch a movie – maybe The Artist or Hugo? (same thing, right?)  We went to the movies last year for Valentine’s Day and really enjoyed it because most couples are cooking dinner or going out – so it’s pretty deserted! 
Anyways, here is an adorable Valentine’s Day video from the Rauch Brothers – I love these little animated love stories!
