I'm totally geeking out over my new external hard drive at the office. It's so cool!

Grandma Gogg's Strawberry Lemon Peel
1 buff puff
6 wild strawberries (or other grainy fruit such as kiwi)
1 liter sparkling water
1 6 oz. serving of plain, natural yogurt
¼ of a lemon

Stand in a sunny window for 30 seconds to warm the skin. Gently crush strawberries onto buff puff and, after testing on a small area of your arm, massage into the face for 30 seconds (microdermabrasion). Rinse liberally with sparkling water. Mix the yogurt and lemon juice and slap a thick layer onto face for five minutes (fruit acid peel). Rinse with warm tap water and apply a gentle moisturizer.

It's amazing what a difference having living green and floral elements in your interior makes. Flowers always add instant sunshine to my day.

Just one more reason to loath Best Buy.

Call to action (or comments)

The husband and I are looking for a vacation spot for early August (maybe June) of this year. We went to NOLA for our honeymoon and the Bahamas after that, but we aren't sure where to venture next. I'd say the new house will definitely keep us in the country and most possibly within driving distance.

Curious if any of you have been some place cool that you'd suggest. If so, please share.

A Day to Remember

Let's fall asleep to Dave's sultry voice and dream in honor of all we know, and everything we have yet to learn. I couldn't have grown more with anyone else, loved anyone else like this, be taken out of my element with such comfort by anyone else. Today I have a half decade of memories swishing around in my mind. The hardest parts to feel are the ones I thought I'd never forget. Good has conquered my universe and the starry sky seems so much more accessible now. We'll never be that innocent, that loose, that free again.

We've traded up for life and I don't often regret it. I'm spoiled with the good parts, the good ones of the mix - such beautiful people they are. I can count all five of them. Five beautiful souls who have known more hurt, more pain and given more to life and love than I've ever even considered. Here's to them and all the pieces of myself they've granted me.

So, I started a list of things to do before I'm thirty. Some things are big, some trivial. It just gives me a bit more purpose and it fit in nicely with my thoughts on how to improve the upcoming year.

A winter Saturday

I lost a pretty significant sized post this morning. It was probably for the better since it was fairly negative and mostly me having a pity party over the whole house hunting thing.

Did some light neighborhood shopping today and some day dreaming in the local galleries. I could fill an entire piece of paper with the pieces I'd buy if I had the budget. Montgomery (and the surrounding area) has some great talent.

Wrapping the day up with the quest of finding a beautiful tree. Hopefully this will snap me into the holiday spirit and a much more inviting mood. Good day to all.
