I AM BUZZIN FOR TWO REASONS:



1. I received my first ever comment today!! Woohoo, thank you Brooke, who knew blogging could supply you with such a high!



2. I am reading a fantabulous book called, The Secret Life of Bees, and it is quite possibly one of the best books I have read in the last month or two.



It is sweet and endearing yet maintains a thread of core values and life lessons throughout the whole story. Being a recent victim of the big four lettered word (L.O.V.E, just in case I had to spell it out for ya) the pages inspired by love and hope had me kind of spellbound.


"Did you know there are thirty-two names for love in one of the Eskimo languages? And we just have this one. We are so limited, you have to use the same word for loving Rosaleen as you do for loving a Coke with peanuts. Isn't that a shame we don't have more ways to say it?"
- pg. 141


Do you have a different way of saying that lovely word that implies the feeling of love? Maybe if we can get the words we use out there and into the open, then we (as well as the eskimos) will have 32 ways of saying it :)


Just for the heck of it -

(Ta gra agam ort Jeff - just for being a good trooper sweets, I told you I'd write about you at some point!)


Lastly, Belle Maison, http://www.bellemaison23.com/ has fantastic decorating sites that are definitely worth taking a look at.

Thanks for commenting on my blog! I just read this book, and I enjoyed it, too. I would like to see the movie...do you think you will see it?

Well I am not a huge fan of actually going to the movies, buttt I think it looks super good and will probably make an exception :) All the actresses were on Oprah recently and it seems like a great cast!
