the best boys

I was home this past weekend to meet my best friend's new baby, Owen, who just so happens to be the younger brother of my godson Jackson. Sunday was his baptism day!

I asked Jackson if I could take Owen back to DC with me, and he said that I couldn't, because "Owen is his favorite person in the world and he'd miss him too much if he was gone."

I melted.

Love those boys!

ornament swap?

Happy November!

I'm thinking of organizing a little Christmas ornament swap....would anyone be interested in playing? I'm not sure of all of the details yet, just debating....


Also, does anyone know how to make those little swap boxes? You know, with the picture inside, and then a link back to the original post? What are they called?!

monogrammed cuff?!

I just came across this monogrammed cuff from Marley Lilly, and I am pretty sure that I need it! I rarely wear bracelets at all, though I have a few that I love. When I graduated from high school, my parents bought me a beautiful silver cuff with garnets (my birthstone).

I should wear it more often, eh?

Really though, isn't this lovely?

It's a steal at only $34.99, so I think that I might need to treat myself to it!

Have you ever bought anything from Marley Lilly? Are you into monograms?

would you wear this dress, with a buttoned up thin black wool cardigan, black hose, and reddish heels, with pearls, to an interview? straight hair, not curly....

or do you always wear a suit?
