"stop a moment, cease your work, look around you." -leo tolstoy

1.04.2013




things i've realized when i stopped to look around me lately:


::my pillows are so soft and cozy...until the middle of the night when i throw them to the ground::

::i never tire of looking across the albion basin at mt. superior on a bluebird ski day::

::tea is always good in the afternoon--even when i don't particularly like the flavor::

::i could peel a tangerine a million times and never get over how lovely it smells::

::i love staring across a restaurant table at my favorite person in the world...especially when he's telling me of his dreams::

::while playing a heart-wrenching arrangement of silent night with a group of twelve violinists in front of hundreds it's totally possible to get away with "air-bowing" when i forget my notes::

::sixteenth notes look so pretty on the page::

::i love the peter pan collar on my christmas eve pj's::

::berries always look better on snow-heavy branches::

::the germans are so efficient...hot chocolate on a stick::

::i'm glad to be a vegetarian when the waitress brings cj his mountain-high meaty sandwich...good luck::



happy friday, everyone!
thanks for stopping by.


{p.s. details for our next into the woods adventure are here!}

Such sweet thoughts!

That sandwich looks more like punishment than lunch.

It's always a pleasure to stop by. 2012 went by in the blink of an eye & here we are saying goodbye to the first week of the year... only 51 left?? Sounds crazy, even to me. Time... please be my pal. ♥♥♥
