Takeout (Monday)

Monday, November 18, 2013

The weekend felt like it went by fast despite my still-moving-slowly self. But yesterday I had a little burst of energy and in order not to upset this I am going to invite you to perk your Monday up with a few links. 

This is adorable and it made me smile, which is a good way to start any Monday. I think this dad and his kids should win a coolest family of the year award, if there is such a thing.

Speaking of cool kids have you seen batkid? Oh my goodness, what a wonderful story this is, what a wonderful city SF is and what a wonderful foundation Make A Wish is. I completely choked up reading about this, but in that heartwarming way where once in awhile the goodness of people just overwhelms you.

I heard this podcast over the weekend in which Molly Shannon shares a story of being a 12 year old ballerina con-artist. It is hilarious.

Also, I recently teamed up with the fantastic site Scoutmob to sell a selection of my photography pillows (they are discounted too!). It's a really fabulous site and I am super happy to be there. I think it's a company that truly values independent designers and handcraft artisans, and I may be a little bias but I like that. Plus their site is pretty and they have a really lovely selection of items.

  1. Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow! Your photography pillows! That's the best part. I always wonder if there's something more I should/could be doing with my photography, and here you are with such stunning things. Blown away.

    Blown away by BatKid too. Cal threw his sock at me to use as a tissue I was crying so hard when we saw it on the news. Uh, thanks?

    1. thanks! i have had them for awhile . . . i guess i forget to mention these things, as you know i am so skilled in the "look at me" arena. so things like this are good little practices for me.

      haha, a sock! i avoided the Batkid story for a couple days, because, you know, Make a Wish and all. i didn't think i could handle it. so when i found out he was in remission, already holding back tears i finally just bawled from the relief. that makes the story even more wonderful. here's to hoping this is just the start of long life as Batkid.

  9. Oh Batkid, if that story doesn't make every Grinch heart grow 100 times I don't know what would. It's just one of the most amazing things I've ever heard of, what a precious gift to give such a sweet lil boy.
