Really? Gahh. I don't like blogging when I feel like it's work. That's why it's here and there, all around the square and such things. I blog when I have something to say, verbalize and sometimes just when I need to think outloud...in a public forum.
(That is perhaps the equivalent of me walking into a crowded mall and yelling/rambling, maybe near the Gap or Aunt Annie's pretzels.)
(p.s.s. This is yet another confession of my amateur status.)
Yet I'm glad that you read. Whether I'm blogging on a Wednesday at 5 p.m., or a Sunday at 6 a.m., you wander about this little nest.
That really means a lot to me. A whole bunch of meaning packed in your browsing.
That being said, here's the blog I meant to post Friday. :)
I have to post my favorites every now and then. Sometimes because I don't know how else to say... "I want to send Hershey's Mint Truffle Kisses to all these people/creators/thinkers/friends."
So I just put them here and gush. Enjoy.
I don't know Alexia but I think she's one of the coolest people I've ever not met. I don't actually remember how I found her blog, but she became one of my favorites immediately. She also makes these super-cute cross-stitch hoops. You should go buy one of her hoops for someone for Christmas. A couple of them are on my wishlist!

2. Bryan John Appleby
The first time I saw this guy's video, I watched it over and over and over again. His words. His voice. The two are like coffee and toast. If you know me at all, you know there is no greater combination. Except now for Bryan John Appleby. He beats coffee and toast.
Go buy his album. Pick your price and download the digital files. Or spend $5 and order the actual CD. Either way, go get some.
3. 2011 Calendars
Maybe it's the prospect of a new year. New things. New numbers. New days. I'm ready for the new. I'm hoping third's a charm, since the past two years have been not so charming. I would really love to have one of these in my home to help ring in the year.
