Friday Faves

Happy weekend, friends.

*Quote of the week: "Mom, when I die fireworks are going to go off.  I mean that literally.  I am going to go out with a boom." ~ Sloane, age 10

*Great source of laughs this week: Awkward Family Photos, the book and this picture.  

*Image of the week: Once Upon A Time by Boy Wonder

*Favorite moment this week: Sitting side by side with Sloane, both doing our homework, both singing along to the music

*Best new-to-me blog: Beautifully Made blog

*Newest Passion: One of my newest passions is animated short films.  I love this one.  

*Best read in a looooong time: Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey

What about you?  What are you loving this week?

This week I'm loving: true blue pansies, whole wheat pasta & my husband who says some of the funniest, kindest things to me.

Your posts always help me, in so many ways. As do some books. I just finished reading a book (the review is on my blog) which made me realise that we need to live in the NOW! The setting of this book is many many decades ago. A sailor chasing riches, got shipwrecked and landed in Hawaii, he saw how the Indian's cared, shared, soaked in the sun, surfed on the waves and lived in the NOW. This realisation was the best treasure he could ever get.

Love your list, always! The Wonder Boy's photography is amazing, the blog is beautiful, the short film is delightful, and the book sounds like one I should read.

This week I am waiting and preparing. Reading The Paris Wife and enjoying the last visages of summer.

Happy weekend to you, too, Relyn! So appreciate the book recommendations. My reading time is so limited, I want to make the best of it!

Did I say congrats on your new look? So stylish!!

I love your new blog layout! It is exactly the way I would want mine to look (if I had one!)

Love Sloane's quote and I especially love The Newboys song!

I've been looking into some good books to read and will definitely check out Snow Child. Thank you for sharing your faves!

What a unique photo Boy Wonder has.

Always enjoy my visits here.

I watched the short film and loved it! Now you have me hooked on watching other short films on Youtube.
Your lists keep me inspired to capture the moments of each day.

Sloane's quote cracks me up! She says awesome things, doesn't she?

And that awkward photo is hilarious!

What am I loving this week?
*my mom just visited for a week
*saw the play War Horse with her and it was terrific. The puppets and puppeteers are incredible!
*the first signs of fall as the leaves start to change to gold
*emails from old friends, arranging get-togethers over the next month
*pumpkin spice lattes - yum!

I am loving just getting back to check out blogs. I'm loving (sort of) my brand new kitty, Lizzie Cosette, and I'm especially loving that it's Thursday and I'm going to a fun flower arranging class this weekend!

Definitely will look into The Snow Child. Thanks for the recommendation :)

Oldies, but Goodies
