CURRENTLY: November 2016
Here I am again, daydreaming and trying to distract myself from the election! I’m hopeful for a quick and final decision so that we can shrug and move onto holiday preparation! If you’d like to give yourself something else to think about and and do this exercise, share your links below!
Holidays are a family affair and I received this fun Knock Knock stuff that will weave the family together for this season. The 20 Holiday Vouchers help you enlist the family for assistance, but also remind you all to take family time over the holiday. The sweet Spread the Love journal becomes a keepsake remembering what about that person tugs on your heartstrings …and I guarantee it’ll pull on theirs! Sorry, but the Vouchers already sold out for this year, but browse the Spread the Love journals – available in a variety of styles!
CURRENTLY INDULGING IN
Don’t ever feel guilty about only sending a card again! Letterpress Holiday cards by Papermum Press are a gift in and of themselves. The impression of the letterpress gives your card depth, and emphasizes the quality of the paper. For every color on the card, they pass each card through the printing press again. The printer’s expertise and artistic eye comes through in every card. Maybe we’ll get an up close look one day soon
CURRENTLY DAY DREAMING ABOUT
My next themed birthday party. I love doing themed parties – in the past I held a non-tragic TITANIC party for my son, a SPY TRAINING CAMP for my daughter. For work, we recently hosted a conference but gave the guests the true California experience. Now, I’m creating an Oceans 16 themed event. Being a Walt Disney fan, creating events that appeal to every sense with unexpected surprises invigorates me. Pictures to come!
CURRENTLY LISTENING TO
This music choice perfectly represents my gemini-ness:
21 Pilots Heathens perfectly portrays the delicate line between pained control of Marvel’s Suicide Squad’s outward appearance but also the betrayal that deeply scarred their hearts.
The Weeknd (featuring Daft Punk) produced a song Starboy that takes me away! The strong beat supports The Weeknd’s dreamy lyrics and the melody just makes my body move – I’m a star girl!
CURRENTLY OBSESSED WITH
In a world where life is often lived online for the world to see a gift with a secret code feels like something my loved ones would cherish. Though Morse Code was built for communication to connect two individuals, reinventing it into cherished modern jewelry as a way to connect two individuals warms my heart. The style of the code easily fits with the styles worn by men or women!
Every amazing movie from the 80s culminated in the new series Stranger Things! My children and I binge-watched the series over two nights. Though they don’t appreciate all of the symbolism from my teen years in the show, they love the characters and the suspense. We were thrilled to see that STRANGER THINGS SEASON 2 recently started production!
I know I’m in my mid-40s but the sloth ring may be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen and I love the way the designer builds multiple parts to the ring to create depth with her animals. Maybe I’ll get one for myself “and for my daughter” (but it may escape and wander over to my jewelry box one night…)
The media of all kinds (at least for the next 60 or so hours). Though this blog lives online and we all live in a social media world now, I feel as though the news agencies’ competition for ratings result in exaggerated, sensationalized and even falsified news. This crazy election exacerbated the problem. So until the election washes over, my screen will be dark except to write my #NaBloPoMo posts. Now if only I could stop political mail from hitting my mailbox.

I love a themed birthday party!!!
I can’t wait to share some photos from the parties we hosted soon! Thank you for wandering by today!
OMG! I need that sloth ring. I am in my 40’s and I would love to have that ring. I am patiently waiting for Season 2 of Stranger Things. I amhappy that The countdown to the Gilmore Girls is almost here. I said I would live in France if I could in your last post, but truly I would love to live in Stars Hollow. 😳 LOL!
