the boston marathon was last monday, and it was hot. record-breaking hot. my dear friend shannon and her husband casey were staying with us from utah because shannon was running in the marathon.

if you don’t follow national racing news – over 26,000 runners were expected at this years boston marathon. 4,300 of those runners opted to sit-out when the organization encouraged people to defer to next year because of the heat. leaving 22,500 to run. after the race started, things became gloomy as we watched everyone run by – you could tell they were suffering. you could see the mental battle they had to each overcome – the constant choice to quit or finish.


maileg :: toy review

March 8, 2012

words can not describe how much i love these little mice from maileg. and watching miss five play with them on the floor – it’s killing me with cuteness.

soft mini creatures that live in cigar boxes + match boxes. yes please! and, look! there’s a milk carton house + furniture! {gasp!}

The most effective kind of education is that a child should play amongst lovely things. –Plato

Easter is in one month – they have special toys and decor for that, too!

are you already a Maileg fan?
