little snapshots.


{1 + 2} Flowers from our complex's garden. 
{3} His little white paws. 
{4} New stickers for my sweet students. 
{5} The loveliest thank you card I ever did see. 
{6} One of my favorite books from childhood (I'm using it to teach a lesson on the character traits independent, appreciative, and wise).
{7} A sweet little piece of artwork with an even sweeter story. (Jeffrey and I were at Starbucks probably over a month ago when a darling little girl (about 3 or 4 years old) walked up to us and gave us a zarf. We were touched that she was so outgoing and thought we deserved a little gift from her. About 10 minutes later, she walked back out to us and handed us this little drawing. We were floored! It was the sweetest, loveliest thing and we thought her artwork was beyond wonderful. We've been meaning to do something with it and this weekend Jeffrey made a little frame for it and hung it in our house. Don't you just love that?!)

Thanks for such a positive response on my last post. This weekend ended up being such a lovely one and it surely reaffirmed my love for Jeffrey. Don't you love when that happens? Sometimes I could just be stopped in my tracks with my astounding love for that guy. (How many times can I say love in one post? Love.)

We got chicken Souvlaki, fries, and Coke for lunch on Saturday and it was delicious. We took it to our new favorite local dog park and let Woody roam around for awhile. We finally got him to play fetch with us and watching him run around is an absolute blast. He hops around like a little deer and it's the cutest thing we've ever witnessed. We made chicken tacos for dinner and Jeffrey ran out to buy us some ice cream (this has been fulfilling my craving) and watched a couple episodes of Friends. It's our latest TV show addiction and we're having so much fun watching it from the very beginning!

Yesterday I wrote some more thank you notes (I don't know why this round is taking me so long!), made a quick trip to the mall, and did some cleaning of the apartment. Oh, how I despise cleaning, but I loooove walking into a tidy home. One of my favorite things, I do believe. I hope you had a wonderful weekend, full of only the best. Tell me, what did you do? xo, R.

P.S. Would anyone be interested in a post about some of the really cool goodies we've been picking up for Woody? Every time we get a new treat, I think it's surely the most amazing dog thing ever! I'd love to share, but I'm not sure if anyone else would find it interesting. Please let me know. :)

I love the photo of his little white paws. So very sweet. And Miss Rumphius is one of the best books ever. Andy says you should definitely do a post about dog treats. Love you. XXOO
