Real Reason

There are things you do because they feel right

& they may make no sense & they may make no money

& it may be the real reason we are here: to love each other

& to eat each other’s cooking & say it was good.

Brilliant? I think so. Buying a couple new books is always fun, but I get overwhelmed when I have too many books that I want to read. This would literally help balance that out.

One Delightful Button

My sister Katie (she¬†blogs here) makes lots of wonderful things with buttons. Earrings, hairpins, but my favorite thing she makes are bookmarks. You can find her stuff on her store One Delightful Button¬†here. As kids, Katie was always really crafty. I’m so glad she’s channeled all her inner craftiness into this business! She now sells her stuff online and at a bunch of camps and stores. You go girl!

Her paperclip bookmarks are my favorite way to keep my spot when I’m reading. I have a bad habit of dog-earring pages… not good! I’m pretty sure I remember in elementary school spending a whole day in the library talking about why we should not dog-ear. Whoops!
