meet my friend...

her name is shayna roosevelt.




i found her at alt design summit, and joslyn said we could keep her.

i love her intense brows, but i love her smile even more than that. it's exactly how i smile when i read her words right here.




i'm drawn to people who seem to be smiling giant while they're writing. or while they're just living. aren't you?

i must apologize to shayna for outing her like this. it's just that i asked her to send photos for a project we're planning, and when i saw them i think i went a bit gaga. she's lucky i didn't post all four. but seriously? that first one, i'd expect to see in a magazine. and the second one? i'd expect to see on my fridge. i told you: gaga. have a sweet weekend, friends. xoxo.

She's gorgeous. I may have a little bit of girl-crush on her, too. And I have a feeling that when I hop over to read her words, it'll turn into full-blown love.

Have a beautiful weekend, dear.

xoox,

what a gorgeous smile. i love when people smile with their whole being. you can feel the difference, it radiates more.

oh no! karey, you sure know how to light up a gal's friday! i'll be beaming all weekend (and thinking of your sweetness).

joslyn and i decided that states should be more like city-blocks and then we would all live within walking distance of each other.

Her smile is almost as beautiful as her being. But then I'm prejudiced cuz I'm her ma.
