Carousel Horse Race

This Carousel Horse Race by Improv Everywhere made me smile.  Dylan would be beside himself if this happened to him!

Elf donuts

Are you kidding me?

These elf-sized donuts made me laugh.  You won't believe how easy they are, either!  

Happy Monday!  May your day be Merry + Bright!

A reminder

Last night Paul and I saw The Descendants.  We both loved it.   The story follows a man (George Clooney) and his two daughters as they struggle to define a new life together after his wife and their mom is in a tragic boating accident.

Paul and I both walked away reminded of how, just a few months ago, our lives could have quickly taken a very different course.  A few months after Paul's accident I caught myself counting up the misfortune we've had this year: Family problems, Paul's near-death accident, my surgery, struggling with infertility, even losing our cat, the list went on and on inside my head.  But, then I realized: these are all problems we've endured, issues we've overcome together.  2011 was a difficult year, yes.  But we persevered.  We remained a family.  We found peace, joy and an abundance of love. 

I'm feeling deeply grateful that we could sit together in a dark theater, share popcorn and candy and, after, leave the theater thankful for the live we still have, and head home to our little boy.

So, here's to life's noble reminders.  And may they always be accompanied with a loved one by your side and a bag of popcorn in your lap.

Happy December!

Hello, December!  We've been busy little bees over at the Meyer household.  After a delightful Thanksgiving spent with Paul's family, we hit the ground running preparing for a superhero birthday party for our out of this world and soon-to-be FOUR year old!  Here's a peek at his Save the Date, plus one of my favorite Christmas photos to celebrate the beginning of the holiday season. Happy tree trimming!

Paul's work in Standard Magazine

My talented husband's artwork and home objects are featured in the new issue of Standard magazine.  The starburst headboard he made even made the cover!

Many thanks to Standard's Editorial Director, Kelly LaPlante.

Congratulations, Paul!  We love you and are so proud of you!

St. Louis Cardinals

You can take a girl out of St. Louis...
But she'll always be a Cards fan! (and if she isn't, she should know better!)

So happy for the best team around and for the best fans on the planet!

Photo of yours truly with my grandma. (The ducks are Cardinals fans, too.)

I stumbled across this album on OhDeeDo and couldn't help sharing it with you.  What great music!  The perfect companion to a cozy Saturday afternoon or a sunny, wintry day with your loved ones...

I love what the composers have to say, too:

"For this album we tried to make songs that could soundtrack all of the little things in your life to feel like they are special parts of a film. Maybe not too dramatic parts, or intense parts, but just everyday magic kind of stuff."

 Isn't that the sweetest thought? I think they accomplished their goal, listen here.
