'Maleficent' which was utterly fantastic, Julia declared it "AS GOOD, maybe BETTER, than 'Frozen'", can you believe it? We both loved it. Heaps of praise for that one!
Got a very summery list for you this week.....

Fascinating take on 'The Goldfinch'! The article mentions a critic who said,“Its tone, language, and story belong in children’s literature,” ~ which is exactly why it appealed to me so much!
Oh my goodness. This post, it's like reading from the most wonderful book.
CB2 has some seriously awesome pillows right now.
Banana bread skillet cake.
Just got these BUNNY & KITTEN leggings for Julia. We squealed when we saw it.
Kids making dinner!!!! Woo! That is TOTALLY happening in our house someday!
Everything about this post about strawberry watermelon yogurt popsicles is beautiful.
Cool Book of the Week: 'When Elephant Met Giraffe' by Paul Gude came very strongly endorsed by my friend Julia (I grew up with her in Hawaii!). She thought this story about two friends with differing personalities who learn to get along would be something I'd like to know about, and she was right, how cute does this look? Apparently Elephant is chatty and Giraffe...not so much. (Sounds like me and my husband!) The friends make pretzels together. They play pirates. And they learn how to make their opposite communication styles work. There are three mini stories contained within the book, which will greatly appeal to preschool aged kids.
