can't help myself, i love you and nobody else

My nephew Tiernan David, who I think looks exactly like his daddy Chance. In August (or September) I will have another nephew. I can't wait!

that's the way it goes, it'll all work out

For the current challenge at Design Dollies.

Photo is from my friend Kate's (the pretty one in the center with the blue eyes) 30th birthday in November. My friend Whitney & I are by her side, happy to be together.

The line in this song always makes me think of a few people I know with GORGEOUS blue eyes (especially Miss Kate, my Grandpa Garretson, my friend Jimmy). So the lyric was perfect for this layout.

many a stormy wind shall blow, til Jack comes home again

If you haven't checked out the blog where these come from, you really should. They are so great.

Not looking forward to this weekend, like I was the last one (seeing all my friends, discovering the new "gen x" radio station, eating, drinking and being merry). Because this weekend is my weekend on-call (doom). Ugh. Hopefully it will be a quiet one. Still am hoping to catch some yard sales and to have a little time to read a book.

I'm only happy when it rains

this is the sweetest title for a print: the rains fell, the waters rose, and they continued dancing

and they say goldfish have no memory

Spring marks the return of YARD SALE SEASON! This is the Fiesta vase I got this weekend for a measly 4$. Isn't she lovely?

I also bought the board game Cranium (which was still in its shrink wrap from the store) for 50 cents. I have wanted the game but wanted it new, because used clay freaks me out a little.

For 4.50 I had a great little Saturday morning. I can't wait til next Saturday.

Don't be afraid/I'm yours for goodness sake

a little love note of my own...

let's waste time chasing cars around our heads

I unearthed this note...and began thinking about the immortality of the love note (even after the love is gone). I tend to get rid of pictures, but notes find their way into a box of pictures, or stapled to the page of a journal. This one is one of my favorites.

"Dear Shannon, You were getting boring before I discovered all of your maddening imperfections that make you impossibly complex and unendingly intriguing."

I am pretty sure that now he just thinks I am a jerk. But the note still makes me smile a little.

Do you keep these little immortals, or get rid of all the evidence?

moonlight & love songs never out of date

What I am thinking about today:

"It didn't happen, that's why it's romantic. If it would have happened it just would have been life." paraphrased from an episode of The Good Wife

Further evidence that the above is true... IMDB lists the top 50 romance movies. The number 1 movie is Casablanca (SPOILER ALERT- they don't end up together). source

the hook brings you back

I saw idea this on another blog recently, scrawled it down and thought I would use it to get me back into blogging again. Work is so busy it's hard to justify the time to get on here.

looking forward to: catching some more Royals games this season.

what I did yesterday: relaxed and watched some DVR'd shows & the Royals lose.

what I wish I could do: swim (although I am afraid to take lessons).

where I would like to travel: Nantucket.
