Here are some things I'm currently wild about:
I've gotten some good mail over the last week or so! My friend AJ, who lives in Belgium, sent me this bright scarf that happened to match the shirt I was wearing that day:
She also knitted me a little rabbit! It's actually the second one she's sent me - the first still lives on my nightstand. Now he has a friend.
Last February I visited Jessica in Oregon for a women's conference. I couldn't go this year, which was a bummer because Carolyn Custis James was the keynote speaker. But Jessica sent me a surprise copy of the latest book, Half the Church, signed by the author herself!
She even included a picture of CCJ signing the book. How thoughtful is that? :)
In other news, I found the perfect orange bag at TJ Maxx!
It's roomy but not too large, structured but not too fussy, well-made, and has a TON of pockets. But what pushed me over the edge was the matching umbrella in a special pocket at the bottom of the purse. I've been getting by with one falling-apart umbrella for several months, so since I needed a new umbrella anyway, why not get a bag too? ;)
I haven't found any orange or yellow flats, not even at DSW, but this dose of orange ought to satiate me for a while.
Finally, my cats were especially cute last weekend:
On Sunday afternoon I realized I hadn't seen Gandalf in a while, so I went looking for him and found this:
What an adorable weirdo.
