weekly gems

How was everyone's week? Mine went pretty well, mostly because I followed the quote above, getting enjoyment out of morning skinny vanilla lattes, thought-provoking conversations, catching up on blogs, walks with the dog, and baking brownies. I am still enjoying the little things today as Dan, Madison, and I are visiting Dan's family this weekend. We'll head back to school tomorrow, and Monday morning I'll head home for a few days...because I am finally on spring break!! : ) What are your favorite spring break activities?

  • This hydrangea cake and the painting that inspired it are both beautiful! These tiramisu cups look delicious, too. And I'd like to make these cake pops for Easter this year.
  • Awesome tips for building your blog, whether it's a design blog or not.
  • Love me some JGL ; )
  • A 200-year old love letter was found! What a feeds my hopeless romantic soul.
  • Tributes to the late, great Elizabeth Taylor - here and here. And an all-photo tribute here.
  • Super excited about Glamour's cookbook!
  • Cute and classy bangles.
  • These tips on shopping for books are excellent.
  • Thoughts on the new additions to the Oxford English Dictionary?
  • I read The Magician's Nephew for a book report in 5th grade and totally loved it. If it does actually get made into a movie, I will be first in line to see it!
  • Beautiful paintings.

Aw That print is super super cute! :D
I loved the 200 year old love letter! IT was super sweet and so romantic, and so dramatic as well!
I can't wait to make engagement chicken one day!

I know, I thought the 200 year old love letter was so romantic. And I think I might make engagement chicken one day soon and see what happens ; )

loooved the 200 year old love letter! of course it was in french ;)
also, the additions to the oxford english dictionary are RIDICULOUS. yeah, abbreviations are used, but they should not be added to an official dictionary. maybe if it was a slang dictionary or a dictionary of internet terms.. but not a standard one! by the way, did you look at the tags on that post? i think my favorites are "hell to the no!" "things that make me die inside" "why am i crying" and "not jon hamm" hahahaha.
love your variety of weekly gems!
