TGIF.

"when I find myself fading, I close my eyes and
realize
my friends are my energy."

end of week two. thanks for letting me blather on this week about completely random things! i am one week removed from gluten again & i have to say the fog is starting to lift, thankfully. i have to send a big shout out and loads of hearts to the gluten free girl, who announced today that "the chef knocked her up" - very exciting! also big hearts to my lovely emilia from auburn & ivory who has devoted march (& an entire 2nd blog space!) to uncovering the greenies out there who are doing their part for the environment & doing it with style, check out new posts & interviews with eco-friendly designers & artists daily.


to my new friends on indiepublic who have been so welcoming with adds & comments, i am putting aside weekend time to check out your blogs & shops & flickrs so i can comment back to each of you:)...and to all of my visitors who have been giving me a read, i can see from my tracker that you are from all over the US & the world - big hearts to madrid & kuala lumpur for making the trip!
i have post-its all over my computer with collected blogs, sites, quotes & craft ideas that i need to share with you, because i just do and since i will be snowed in & broke this weekend i hope to get it all blogged out & linked up & beautified! i'm really having fun and since it's friday & i am curled up watching a movie with the kidlets, i will leave you with some yummies for the weekend - quotes & cocktails, happy friday!
