Have you ever had one of those days that just makes you want to punch the sky? That was Sunday. And I guess it only really hurt so bad because there was such huge potential. Perfect day potential. I could … Continue reading
Did I ever tell you I hate the word inspirational? Inspirational is the English language equivalent to Chicken Soup for Soul. Overdone. I’d take inspiring over inspirational any day. Inspiring is active, it’s happening right now. Things are changing for the better. My … Continue reading
You wouldn’t necessarily expect to find greatness in a retail setting, but sometimes you just get lucky. That’s exactly where Lauren was when I met her. Both of us there in the fitting room of a store we’ll call … Continue reading
Forgive me, friends, I’ve been holding out on you. For a while now. I’ve known it ever since I saw my tiny, Russian friend Natalia’s eyes widen as she said, quietly, “I want the recipe” after tasting it. She was … Continue reading
Seems like I’ve been doing a lot of zooming off between one thing and another lately, but I love those moments when the beauty of real life shines through. And, you know, my camera battery isn’t all dead and whatnot. … Continue reading
Fair warning, folks. This post is going to be ugly. Why? Because no situation is improved without there first being something to fix. See, we’ve got these shelves. There’s nothing wrong with them, per se, except… See what I mean. … Continue reading
Exactly how often do you find yourself whisking through the house with your satin robe billowing behind? You sweep up the stairs as you go. It caresses the backside of your legs as you pause at the refrigerator, thirsting. Your … Continue reading
And happy birthday to my sweet, sweet husband. This is a guy who makes me feel loved every single day. I couldn’t help but give it all back for his birthday. I borrowed the car to go grocery shopping but instead went … Continue reading
Besides the fact that we’ve once again reached that part of the semester wherein I fall prey to the too-busys and the too-tireds, I’ve been all over the place here lately. I think it has to do with the weather. … Continue reading
Nothing makes me smile quite like fresh post. I got this package from my friends in Tam Tam the Sandwichman & the Magical Sugar cookies. I love this band for the sweethearts in it, the killer bass lines, guitar licks, snappy drums, overall garage-y sound. And now that I’ve gotten my copy of the First Supper in the mail I can say I love their attention to detail, and graphics, too. Look at it!
Stationary is adorable and frightening at the same time. Something you could only achieve with the proper amount of Magical Sugar Cookies. And the album itself is none too shabby.
Jordan was sweet enough to throw in a poster for a Tam Tam show at Will’s Pub which instantly made me cry because I miss that place and those people so much. And because it’s well designed. Because I weep for good design.
But let’s really take a look at the cover here. We’ve got pooped rainbows, here people. I love it, I love it. And the music is well recorded and perfectly sway-able. Listen to Snail’s Pace and get your own here. You will love it.
Adding this album to our collection makes me feel like my treasure chest runneth over. Soon as I can get my poster framed it’ll be up on the wall as a tribute to some of the awesomeness coming out of Orlando these days. I miss you guys!
