Gift Idea for Kids: Mouse in a Matchbox

unique kids gift
Our flower girls were Emi and Dulcy, the daughters of two of our really good friends. They wore wild flower crowns, fluttery white dresses and gold moccasins. It just about killed me. As a thank you gift, we gave each of them a little stuffed mouse. Each one comes with a matchbox bed, a mattress, blanket and pillow. Emi, who just turned two, loves hers! Her mom Jennifer reports that she never tires of putting him to bed again and again.

They're by the Danish brand Maileg which has the most whimsical toy designs. Look at this bunny princess & the pea set! It may or may not be on my own wish list...

The Best Mascara Ever

best drugstore mascara
After years of searching, I've found the best mascara. People ask if I'm wearing fake eyelashes! I just curl my lashes, apply two coats and, like magic, my eyes look bigger and more symmetrical. And I look more awake! It's like a cup of coffee for your face.

If you already have a great set of naturally-curled lashes, you might not see what the big deal is. But if you have stick-straight lashes like me, you'll be so excited when your curl holds all day. All day!


Side note: Reviewers on Amazon call this their HG mascara, or, as I was recently informed, Holy Grail mascara. For the longest time I thought it was short for Home Girl mascara. And I didn't even think twice about it, ha!

Alan and I spent the week after our wedding in Tomales Bay, a relaxing spot on the Northern California coast known for its oysters. The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of wedding planning, so our time away filled with naps, hikes and amazing food was just perfect.

We're Married!

wedding picture ideas
I can't believe our wedding was just last weekend. I keep saying this because nothing else seems to describe it better, but it was a dream. Everyone was so beautiful and happy, Alan was healthy and handsome and all the details I spent months planning turned out perfectly. What a crazy thing to marry your best friend in front of all the people you love the most. It was just a dream! I'm so excited to see the pictures from our photographer and will share them and all our wedding details as soon as we can.
