My nephew/niece count will reach a dozen at the start of the new year. My sister-in-law is due in January, so she’s having a sprinkle soon to celebrate her first daughter. I’m giving her this book (spoiler alert, sis!), thus the inspiration for this installment of the Friday Five:
sadness :: Famous figures speak their peace on dealing with depression, and there’s an overwhelming consensus that being sad–in some ways–feels good and like a release while being depressed feels numb and like nothing.
glamorous :: Always a girl in pearls, I finally found a proper evening bag to bring to weddings and special occasions in the summer, winter and seasons in between.
cool :: A fellow Texas blogger named Bridget’s got that je ne sai quoi.
love :: A college friend’s older sister reached out to request a flower from each of her close friends to make a friendship bouquet. It’s acts like these that make kindness karma go round.
impressed :: I visited the Degas exhibit at MFAH last night and was wowed by his portrayal of movement, preparation and performance. Dallas is rivaling it with a Monet exhibit: which impressionist do you prefer?
Enjoy your start to the weekend!
