making me happy this morning...


from the wonderful rachel

signs of spring in my house, even though the forcast for the week contains all lows in the 20's. pssshhhhhh. i am so ready for tank tops and dirty knees from being outside all day. i want dresses and sandals. speaking of sandals. i need y'alls help. here are the gorgeous swedish hasbeens that sam surprised me with (pair 2, the first pair were mustard and too small) in cognac. the problem is that i loved the mustard and these are a touch big. i really need the 9.5, which doesn't exist. i love them, though! should i keep them?



ps just painted toes are always a tad messy. what can i say?

and how great are these?

but what's really, really making me happy this morning? our little matilda walked all the way across the living room today. that's right! of course we didn't catch it on video. we're not that smooth. while she was walking she said "yay!". i mean, come on. she is the cutest!

hope you all have a restful, reflective sunday.

I think those sandals are definitely keepers! In fact, I like them as much if not more than the mustard.

Cute:)
