Sometimes you don't need words. You just need the one you love and can find comfort in.
Sorry we didn't post at all last week. Jake and I had a family emergency and had to make an unexpected trip to Colorado and we just got back last night. Being home made me miss the quaintness of a smaller town where you can have lovely picnics like this one. Out here in California a lot of people have lemon and orange trees in their yard. That is just so cool to me. Anytime you want fresh fruit you can just step out your backdoor.
Last weekend I fulfilled one of my lifetime goals: seeing "Weird Al" Yankovic in concert. I know that sounds really strange and hard for most people to relate to, but his music has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember listening to music. My oldest brother, who introduced Weird Al to me when we were kids, also came with us. We thoroughly enjoyed the show. And even though Jamie didn't grow up listening to him, she had a blast too.
I like Summer. It's not my favorite season, but it does seem to be the season where everyone travels. Kids are out of school and the sun is out. Don't these posters make you want to visit these places? They remind me of those vintage postcards you could find in any souvenir shop, but with a better, more thought out design. I picked out some of my favorite classic travel posters, but the Anderson Design Group has so many more neat ones.
You know that plack you see hanging in everyone's house? The one that says "Home is where the heart is". Well I think that quote has run it's course. It's kind of like when you have too much of a good thing.
Here is a quote to replace it. I like this version better anyway. It's clever, kind of corny, but fun.
Ever since Jake surprised me with my new smart phone I've been taking advantage of the alarm clock feature where you can set your alarm to play any song on your phone. My previous phone just let you to play those hideous noises that are made to make you wake up on the wrong side of the bed. In order to avoid one more morning of awful sounds, I quickly took action and downloaded one of my favorite songs appropriately titled A Good Day (Morning Song) by Priscilla Ahn and let me tell you my mornings just got better. It still takes me a while to fully wake up, but between this song and Jake bringing me fresh coffee, I can now face the morning without a frown.
It's like they took the words right out of my mouth. These are definitely words everyone should live by and the beautiful typography just makes them better.
