my week in objects (mostly).

July 6, 2018

five little things that made my week. 

1. these curls.

{and those chicks. and everything about spending a few days at my mom and dad’s.}

2. these curls, too.

{no matter the hair-brushing struggles.}

3. this coffee-colored dress.

{all the better for hiding the one i spilled down the front of it this morning.}

3. this grammy and grandpa-made mud kitchen.

{because what could be better?}

5. this enormous mint patch.

{for never running out.}

other things:

if you follow one new person on twitter this week.

a place you might direct pennies this week.

harvesting liberty.

it’s hard to be what you can’t see.

a beach towel i can get behind.

explore & protect.

we share the sky.

    Regarding sky-sharing: Tonight let’s read My House Has Stars, the lovely picture book written by Megan McDonald and illustrated by Peter Catalanotto, published in 1996 but so very relevant today. Always important: a picture book that stands the test of time–and of heart.

    Could not get photos # 1, #3 and #5 to load on either phone or desktop. Might be me, but other photos are loading fine. Thanks!

    Gotta plant that mint in a raised bed or it will root all over the place and you will be drinking mojitos for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

      No worries! It’s in my mom’s raised and sectioned herb garden!
