I've always thought I needed one of those "Keep Calm and Carry On" posters, but this Conan version is so much better. And so true. I think you've probably heard by now about Conan's last words about being kind and amazing things will happen. I love that. Thinking lately about how I treat people and want to be treated. Simple kindness is so under appreciated and I know that I want to value it more. We all should. And that is my sappy-ness for this morning :)
So in the spirit of kindness, I thought I'd do a RAK and give away TWO copies of my fabulous friend Liz's book...
And my love list from 2008: reading tons of blogs through Google reader, looking through photos on Flickr, riding the El every morning over the Chicago river, watching Top Chef and Project Runway on Bravo, using wifi while eating dinner before class at Corner Bakery, salted caramel cupcakes from More, cremeblush from MAC, being a Garden Girl at 2ps, the new 90210, looking down Southport from the top of the El station, my iPhone, Steve Madden shoes, yummy slices of pizza at Costco, colorful cardigans from J.Crew, traveling with my best friends, listening to Ingrid Michaelson over and over, tortillas and garlic butter at Uncle Julio's, iChats on the Macbook with Sarah, going to the movies at the Landmark Theater, scallop deco scissors, Time Out Chicago magazine, funny emails from friends, Jennifer Lancaster books, the sparkling city lights at night.
I have to say not much has changed at all in two years... it's so funny :) If you'd like to be entered to win a copy of the 52 Challenges book, leave a comment with something that's on your love list right now. I'll draw the winners after the weekend!
