Guest Post: My Heart, from Danielle @ Dinosaur Toes

Hi, I'm Danielle from Dinosaur Toes!  When Micaela asked me to guest post, I knew I wanted to because I've loved her blog from the first visit.  I was lucky enough to meet Micaela shortly after she moved to Virginia, and we became fast, or instant, friends.  I'm sure you've read of at least one of our thrifting dates together, which I always loved because of the non-stop girl talk, and the fact that neither of us went home empty-handed as we talked one another in to buying everything!  I hope Micaela and hubby are having a safe trip, and I can't wait to hear about their journey (and hopefully it went smoother than the rocky start)!

"With as much creativity as you can muster, show your heart in: a picture, a poem, a song (or piece of music), a quote, an item of clothing, and a place."

a picture:

my sweet Flojo, who stole my heart the very minute i saw her.

a poem:

The Bird's Nest

I know a place, in the ivy on a tree

Where a bird's nest is and the eggs are three

And the bird is brown, and the eggs are blue

And the twigs are old but the moss is new

And I go quite near, though I think I should have heard

The sound of me watching, if I had been a bird

by John Drinkwater

a song:
side note: this is my favorite drummer in the WORLD!
a quote:
If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.
-St. Francis or Assisi
an item of clothing:
I LOVE shoes!
a place:
San Francisco, my heaven on earth (and of course if I lived there, I'd become an even crazier parrot lady because of the beautiful, wild cherry headed conures).

Rush puts on one of the greatest concerts I've ever been to. Great choice!

Wow, you are so sweet with Flojo! I love that picture. :) And of course I love your place! Sometimes when I'm teaching we can hear the parrots outside the classroom window . . . and it's totally worth the distraction of all the kids running to the window to look at them. :)

I miss you Micaela but these guest posts are so fun to read, too!

Micaela said...

ps. poem and quote = perfection! i read that quote to max and told him that one of the reasons i first fell in love with him is that he had rescued a dog (now our dog) Bubbles.
