stuff i love

I realize that I'm not supposed to love "stuff". But, there are some things in this world that make my heart so darned happy, it's ridiculous. Beaming happy. Content happy. Just plain happy.

Charlie is eating! And running! And playing! YAY!!!! *ahem* I was starting to worry yesterday. I'm not worried at all anymore.

I pink puffy heart LOVE this book. I read it to Ella almost every night. And who knew that Julie Andrews could actually write?!

My favorite quote?

"I say you can be anything you want to be. You just have to let your SPARKLE out!"

No truer words have ever been written.

These are my boots. I love these boots. I wear them religiously, all winter long. Can you tell? HA! They are so comfortable and sturdy and.. and.. and.. I'll spare you an ode to boots, but I just lurve them so. (Along with the scrolly boot tray they are sitting on that keeps my floors from being a sloppy, wet mess when the frozen tundra has made it's way to Kansas.)

I love silly faces from toddlers who tend to over-accessorize. She sure does know how to rock a hair bow, fuzzy scarf, and TONS of jewelry like no other kidlet I've ever known. You can't even see the pink sparkle shoes she's sportin'. She's got spunk, I tell ya. I doubt that she will ever struggle to be an individual. She's absolutely, positively already there. She is so herself.

I have to admit, I've really enjoyed walking around the house this morning, looking for things that make me smile. I might have to make this a weekly post. I dunno. We'll see. :)


  1. I really enjoyed seeing your "joys". We don't always take time to see the happiness in life. It is easier to be negative. Keep it up! Love to all.

  2. All of these things make me happy too! ~ Poi

  3. What am awesome bunch of stuffs to love!

    I also love that Charlie is wearing an elizabethan collar in that photo! Extra cute!

  4. That's one of my favorite favorite favorite children's books. In fact, I have a copy sitting in my room to give to Chris's new niece.

    And I think that's the quote I emphasized in my little note in the front of the book. :D
