our special book for Girl's Day, go see go see! That will get you up to speed on what this treat business up above is all about. Last week, we went and found ourselves some Japanese treats to celebrate Girl's Day. Except we ate them already. We got some coconut-filled buns (AWESOME), some mochi rice treats, and some kind of lotus-paste cookie. That one was...not something I would get again. Aren't the rainbow mochis adorable? Mochi is basically just cooked sticky rice paste that's been sweetened. You should see HERE and HERE for some truly beautiful Girl's Day real deal mochi treats.

Cool Book of the Week: 'When I Was Small' by Sara O' Leary and Julie Morstad. I've been hankering after this book for AGES. I wants it! I think it's going to be my new gift book to new mamas. When a little boy asks his mom, What were you like when you were small? ~ she answers him by describing life as if she had literally been very very small. So she describes her times skipping rope with a ball of yarn and wearing a flower for a sun hat. And the art is like sweetness made real. Julia LOVES it when I tell her stories of when I was young, it's a great theme to pursue in stories!
Have a lovely weekend! I am so so so happy that there is less than a month of winter left. I had the urge to go pull weeds the other day. It quickly passed.
