my imaginary life feels brighter since i tripped over india knight's posterous, picked myself up, and immediately thieved all the sites she loves. she really should be more careful.
one such site is badass of the week, which makes me love history for the first time in my when-was-the-war-of-1812? pitiful little life.
my favorite so far is baldwin IV of jerusalem. i've tried for a maddening ten minutes to figure out the most genius excerpt to throw down here to make you love it, too, but i find this impossible. will you promise to read the first two paragraphs? ok, then.
i've sort of always believed in this concept, so it's not surprising how i drool over this bad boy. i think he'd look stunning with a pair of flip flops and a nothing tank.
if i had three wishes, one would definitely involve haute hippie. do you have a brand that makes your heart race like that?
this post made me re-think red. plus miss murano.
which reminded me of this.
leslie-miles is a sight. this, to me, is my greatest fear...
and this, to me, might very well be my greatest freedom. well. that, and voting and stuff.
one last thing. i was invited to the sweetest baby shower this weekend, and met some hilarious and kind and open and lovely women who made me laugh. loudly. i spent time with my good girlfriends, too. chatted with my sister who's more like my best friend, and my sister-in-law who's more like my sister. and then there are all those imaginary friends who, some days, feel very. very. real.
friendships, both fresh and ripe, are scrumptious, aren't they?
mary and i made this for our friends and yours. we hope you love it as much as we do...
as always, click on the turquoise links to get to the treasures. and have a sweet day.
