Happy 11/11/11! What a fun date:) I'd also like to say Happy Veteran's Day. To all the people who serve our country (and their families and loved ones)- thank you so much for your service and sacrifice. It's not easy to have someone close to you in the military, and it's definitely a big sacrifice for all involved. I don't think we can say it often enough- Thank you! You ARE appreciated!
Favorite Tiny Delight of the Week
Ah, so pretty, isn't it? After halloween I went out and bought a bunch of candy corn on sale for CHEAP. I love it. It's a "pleasure" in life. Notice I didn't say guilty pleasure, because there's nothing I should feel guilty about! it's a pleasure I look forward to in moderation every year, and I've certainly been enjoying a few pieces at work every day!
Favorite Quote of the Week
Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are... Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in my pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return. -- Mary Jean Iron
