happy things to end the week with.

♥ discovering a used bookshop near our house (my favorite). i'm really excited to read ali macGraw's biography and a new to me book by one of my favorite authors. {april, i'm still jealous you got to see steve martin in the flesh!}

♥ mixed tapes. i love making them because it's very much like giving a time machine to someone else. i'm exciting about round two of the mixed share swap going on at Bianca's.

♥ after an exciting MAVERICKS win, finally going to bed only to see Bubbles in my spot under the covers and everything.

♥ speaking of husband, i ordered this for one of Max's birthday gifts for his morning coffee making.

♥ your response to my giveaway! if you haven't entered, i hope you will --- ends june 8th. i haven't stopped wearing my handcrafted bracelet so whoever wins, i know you'll love yours. thank-you to everyone who's spread the word. you make me smile xo

♥ this movie trailer (thanks steph!)

♥ and i'll leave you with this quote my friend erin shared on her beautiful blog:

Give me books, fruit,
French wine and fine weather
and a little music out of doors,
played by someone I do not know.

-John Keats

Happy Friday Lovies! xo

Happy Friday! All those things are really lovely. :) I'm excited for this weekend especially because my cousin (who is like a sister) comes to town tomorrow! YAY! And today I got to have a wonderful birthday celebration over vegan pizza with my dear friend Brady. Praying the rain will hold off!!
