this blog. Wanting to read this book, which was suggested by a lovely blog reader. About to order a new copy of 'Anne of Green Gables' for Julia, I can't wait until Christmas (I've long since lost my old paperback copy) and I'm so excited I can't handle it. I've been waiting and waiting - you'll be able to feel my tears when I write a blog post about it - what I'm agonizing over is...which edition should I get? This, this, or this? Or this? Or this set? This post has a few more options as well. HELP ME.
Things I found this week that didn't make me sad:
What a cool girl.
This makes me miss Hawaii. Mango Bread.
"The golden rule is that emotions are never the enemy, even when they are exaggerated."
Love this series so much! Fascinating.

Would you try this technique? (welcome to my new obsession - Japanese/Korean skincare)
Hey you astronomy buffs - this is very neato.
So excited for this show. (Winona forever!)

Cool Book of the Week: The most darling board book, and it's HUGE! 'Giant Seek and Find' by Benjamin Becue, Didier Balicevic and Annabelle Mege. It just came out this past spring and it's so much fun. I flipped through it in a shop and the only reason I didn't get it for my pre-K aged nephew was because I ended up getting him a little mini robot that moves around with a remote control. I knew he'd love the robot more than a book. BUT! It's HUGE, like the title says, and it's more than gift worthy and would also be intensely fun to throw in the car for summer road trips. I loooooove the art. Julia adored seek and find books when she was younger, actually she still does! If you have a kiddo who loves that sort of thing, this one is a stunner.
