Things I like


I really like books, art and polka dots. You can tell that from this photo. 


And Sunshine. I like my dog Sunshine a lot too. And shoes. (And cupcakes and my husband and movies from the '60s and Willie Nelson, but I'm not sure you can tell those things from this photograph.)


I like shoes that make me taller. I'm 5'8" in real life. In this shoes I'm 5' more than 8".


I'm not sick anymore. I totally kicked that cold! I showed it what was what. I was all like "Take this zinc! And this Vitamin C! How do you like that punk?! Now I'm going to sit on the couch for two days watching Netflix Instant. That's right! Whatcha gonna do about it?" And the cold was all like "I am going to go away. That's what I'm going to do about it."


Life is better when it is filled with red shoes, books, art, polka dots and dogs. Life is better when you are not sniffling and coughing. True story.

Congrats on kicking the cold! I should threaten mine with Netflix! And you're right, life is most definitely better when filled with red shoes, books, art, polka dots and dogs. I couldn't have said it better myself. :) You look darling.
