  • A life with polka dotted dresses is a wonderful one.
  • So I traded my car in a couple days ago for another car.  I have four doors!  The first thing I did was go through an automatic carwash!!  My other car would leak, and so when choosing the options of "typhoon" or "thunderstorm" etc. I had to choose wisely, because that same weather would soon be inside my car.  It only took me one time seven years ago to figure that out.
  • Also, a very nice man gave me a planting flower at work this week.  Little did I know it had a little friend inside who wanted to tag along.  Snail!!  I named it Marcel and then I let it go.  Check out this video.  It's my very favorite thing.
  • A life with cupcakes and fruit tarts is a great one.
  • One more thing, I came across a quote that is currently a favorite... 
It is a risk to love.
What if it doesn't work out?
Ah, but what if it does.
-Peter McWilliams

I have been listening to the following songs lately:
Brave by Sara Bareilles
Manhattan by Sara Bareilles
Come Clean by Tristan Prettyman
I Was Gonna Marry You by Tristan Perryman (fun fact - written for Jason Mraz)
Crazy Love by Mindy Gledhill (side note - I'm pretty sure I saw her at the post office last week)

I went fishing, and caught exactly zero fish - next time I'm bringing the spear!  It was a good time though, it always is with Becca!  We also went to Goodwill.  I had never been before, and my first and only purchase was a little painting by someone named Rodrig.  I think it's a painting of London... can anyone second that?  :-)

*Update (February 13, 2015) 

Also, for those of you who are interested in seeing more of Rodrig's work, Ruben Hordnes has shared the beautiful picture below.  His grandfather purchased it in London during the 60's or 70's!  It is gorgeous!  Thank you so much for sharing, Ruben!
