A Little Night Music

It seems like KaRyn just got home for Korea and she's already on her way to D.C. But she's a smart girl so at her going away party, she asked each of us to bring her a mix CD for her cross-country drive. I've made that drive a few times and it can be dangerously sleep-inducing. Do you remember that VW commercial from a few years ago, with the convertible and Pink Moon by Nick Drake? While I don't recommend too much night driving on long trips,that was the feeling I was going for. Relaxed and happy and hopeful for the future. Well mostly, I might have thrown in more than a few Portland bands so she doesn't forget us. Here's a copy of mine if you want it. (click link to download)

Remember Me?

So it's been a while. Wondering what is good enough to get me back to blogging?

Well, I won't keep you waiting any longer...

My grandmother recently moved in with my aunt and had to downsize. Since I live 3000 miles away, I couldn't ask for any of her furniture or larger items I've always eyed. But I did speak up about a pillow. I have always loved it. And best of all - she made it! And I just got it in the mail.

Here's a photo I took the day I got my first Polaroid, I was about 7. Aren't my grandparents the cutest!

And here it is on my favorite chair
