As I grocery shopped this morning, I hummed along to Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians singing about philosophy as the talk on the cereal box, and thought about how much I’d enjoyed the previous song, too; then it hit me: I am now the target age for grocery store Musak. Ahem.

Cal got his first pair of lace-up shoes today. He can’t tie them on his own, yet, but proudly wore them on our evening walk. The same sambas I had at some point along the way. Some good things never change.

There is someone in the neighborhood who plants buckets full of daffodils and tulips every spring, then changes them out for daisies later in the summer. I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to see them. We don’t walk that direction the other months of the year, but never miss it for the flowers in warmer months.

Happy Thursday.

Lecia, I love your new header, it is beautiful :)

I walked into paperchase in Bath a few weeks ago and they were playing one of my favourite songs, The Feeling- Fill My Little World. By the time the chorus came around, several of us were singing it quietly to ourselves. Brilliant.

I love pretty flowers that say summer is coming, walking my dog the other morning I noticed daisies in the grass. As much as they are a weed, I love them they represent summer.

I prefer lace-up shoes for my children. I didn't mind that they don't know how to tie them on, I did it instead of them. But guess what. I don't know why but they don't make children's shoes with laces anymore here. I am so disapointed. I guess we'll have to change to addidas sport shoes.

Abbott has grown so much, it's amazing.

I love your new header. Your food photography is so fantastic.

Happy spring!

Ditto the new header love. And the pause, below, to capture the fleeting lily beauty.

I had a similar reaction back when I worked at FAO Schwarz and the 'kids' (younger employees) wanted to listen to a local radio play "retro' night as we straightened the store at the end of the day. Turns out, 'retro' night was the music ffrom my high school days....and mind you, I was just out of college.
