happiness found in books & the happiness of a dog
anytime i return from running errands
this is what brinkley does.
he waits patiently for someone
to throw him a tennis ball.
when we’re done
he’s the happiest dog in the world.
if all of life were this simple.
speaking of happiness….around here, books make us happy.
when the girls were little i would encourage them to take care of their books
& not color in them or tear them up.
i would say “books are our friends”
caroline would repeat, “books – friends”
we still say that
in her former 2 year old voice of course.
a couple of weeks ago,
i thought it was sorta cool that everyone’s current reads were all classics.
dan read & loved the bonhoeffer book if any of you are looking for a great biography.
i believe 2010 was the 50th anniversary of ‘to kill a mockingbird’
so we picked up a couple different anniversary editions.
once i pulled everyone’s reads together
i then decided to photograph some of our collection.
clearly i had a little too much free time
because who does this?
these are two super cute whimsical versions of the classics cinderella and thumbelina.
‘cinderella, as if you dind’t already know the story’
‘thumblina, tiny runaway bride.’
i love to collect red hardbacks.
‘the little red book of wisdom’ is wonderful,
written by a friend of ours
& one i highly suggest.
‘revolutionary parenting’ is one of my favorites on the subject of parenting.
& i also love books with deckled edge pages.
my latest read…
it deserves its own post.
‘one thousand gifts’
& will change your heart.
i’ll be posting & giving away a copy later this week…
