    I also slept well this week, thanks to a certain newly adopted kitty cat who finally stopped wailing in the middle of the night! Huzzah!

    Love the candy-sneaking bag. Can we be friends?

    Are you going to be doing any book signing/reading things during your visit to L.A.? Or is strictly pleasure. 😉

    Glad someone slept well this week. We did not.

    Also….I once snuck a cup of coffee in a brown paper bag to the opera at the Met. If that isn’t classy, I don’t know what it 😉

      Yes. It’s been a long 90 weeks for us 😉 Long live illicit snacking.

    Erin, out of curiosity, when you moved Faye into the bedroom did you move her changing table/dresser in there too? (And your dressing table/dresser into the main room?) (I love double function, hard working furniture). Btw, I’ve just (finally) got your book, and I’ve been loving it! Congratulations on it!

      Yes! We swapped everything!

    Thank you for sharing the article on Misty Copeland, I found it really inspiring.
    As for the article on cardboard, I completely agree, which is why I try to avoid online shopping (which is hard for someone who hates to shop). I really appreciate that the association that delivers my organic vegetables bi-weekly takes to boxes back each time they deliver a new (as long as I remember to put it out for them).
