happy first of july!!! 
isn't that crazy? this year is just flying by.  
all the more reason to stop and reflect on the good stuff in life.

this week i am so thankful for...
* sunshine!
* alone time.
* having backup plans.
* "twist and shout" by the isley brothers.
* finally getting to hang out with a dear friend.
* starting the week with a sweet {and free!} outdoor concert.
* not only surviving a rough day but also learning valuable lessons from it.
* a cute haircut by the mister {success!}.

{your comments and well-wishes about dannon cutting my hair yesterday were hilarious. 
he's so completely logical that it was easy breezy. phew!}

what are you thankful for this week?

ps - i hope you all have lovely long weekends {for those of you living in the U.S.} and 
lovely normal-lengthed weekends for those of you not in the U.S.


  1. Love your ginormous hair, and the new more manageable. Regarding your comment on my blog yesterday, I think it would be so exciting for you to pursue your actual swedish roots. I always dreamt that I had a distant uncle in the US so I could go and visit him, but the great thing for you is that you probably do. How exciting. Hopefully your tracks will take you to Copenhagen, and we can have a coffee :O)
    Have a great weekend,
    A xxx

  2. Tough days do teach us don't they...I too am thankful that I can learn from them. Have a great weekend!!

  3. No way!!! your husband cut your hair!!! (I apologize for the excessive use of exclamation points), but this makes you and Dannon the coolest, cutest couple in the glove.

  4. Can I just say how lovely it is to know someone else with crazy ginormous hair?

    Love the new haircut! Well done Dannon!
