New Life

Guess who's back? My gorgeous purple orchid that dropped all it's petals last November! I was devastated at the time. But she has totally redeemed herself. Just a few months later and she's sporting two gorgeous blooms on a brand new stem, one bloom just about to burst, and two other buds...budding. She's pretty much the Rock Star of all orchids ever to live, ever. Some people have kids. Some people have cats. I have an orchid. and I love her...

Speaking of love, I really loved this bullet list from Kami. There is so much cute valentine goodness out there right now. Like this and this and this. Whether you love or hate Valentines Day, you have to admit, it's pretty dang cute.

stop it. that is a super-orchid! and you say you got it from ikea? unreal. orchids are not supposed to bloom that long, and then to bloom again so soon! i'm jealous. really, really jealous.

Let's talk about that view! I could work there. I know... isn't happy heart day the cutest?! I think it's my favorite.

ps. I don't know if I could keep something that gorgeous alive. It's beautiful!

HELLLLLLOOOO, IT'S MMMMMMMEEEEEEEEE!!!

that just made my year, gina. seriously.

and fyi? orchids are NEARLY as great as catties. or we can even put them together on the same level. i'm cool with that.....

i just tried to leave a comment on 'soundtracked' and it wouldn't let me.

so, let me just say: KEANE. THAT IS ALL.

big words for somebody who is eternally musically wedded to DM. but these boys might be taking over.....they are so. SO! i'm glad you share in the love.
