You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go

One thing I know for sure, I love this little boy. His name is Van and he is my nephew. This weekend Kim and Zack are moving to St. George for a new job. Who is this George anyway? Why does he keep taking all of my siblings? I am excited for Zack to have a new job, but I will admit there is a little bit of heart break to see them go. Lucky for me we all went up the tram to Hidden Peak the other day....oh so beautiful. Little Cottonwood, fall colors, family. Thanks Kim for the photos. I'll sure miss you guys.
Also, their condo is for sale. Go here if you know of anyone that might be interested.

Finally. Something I can be proud of. Last week I had this fun little idea. Vintage children clothing. Why had I not thought of it before? It is so obvious. I'm never going to be able to afford those richy shops. So, I started an etsy shop selling vintage children clothing...and my hats too. Every now and then I make one of the dresses or aprons, but you will always know because they are priced as such. Please visit my little shop. There are tons of photos there. I never knew I would like taking photos of clothes so much. Look around, maybe let me know what you think, what i could change or do better. I have more clothing in stock. Tell your friends.
oh and the URL is

Times they are a Changin

this morning when i took brights for a walk, i had to grab a jacket.
a few leaves crackled under our feet as we rounded the block.
then i was reminded, summer is gone.
aw, here she comes again
with her wrinkled face.
blowin through her two front teeth
pullin up the roots.
screamin out the color...
green to gold to red to orange.
holdin in her hands
the COLDEST LOVE we ever know.
her comes Fall, she's makin SNOW.

i sure hope this little leg remembers how to ski.

Shelter From The Storm

I just finished reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. It was recommended by Kim, and now I will recommend it to you, and everyone else.

a young girl - an accordion - a world war -
a loving heart - stolen crosswords - Hansi -
a boy with lemon hair - a man with feathers for hair -
words - books -reading- writing - loving of the unloved
all narrated by death

Liesel came out.
They hugged and cried and fell to the floor.
