Four Friday Loves

I love Friday--it's a day that always seems to be filled with such promise. Promise of a few days of rest and, if you're lucky, a day that produces an automatic payment into your bank account. This Friday is special, because for the first time in a long time, it truly feels like things are coming together. It's amazing how a phone call or two can change your life for the better.

 Here are the things I'm loving today:



{A sweet Valentine}

1. I work for a school district, but my job doesn't include much interaction with our students. But every Wednesday, for 25 minutes, I volunteer to work with a little girl who struggles with reading and spelling. It's the highlight of my week. This week, she gave me this pencil as a Valentine's Day gift. Later, we were practicing using words in a sentence and the word was "aspire." Her sentence? "I aspire to some day marry Justin Bieber." She's a girl after my own heart.


{A sweet reminder}
 2. My grandma's turquoise ring, made by my grandfather. It's one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. I love that it was hers, but mostly I love that he made it for her. I love that it shows its age and has plenty of imperfections, because that's what love it all about: giving to one another, accepting the things that aren't perfect. I'm also wearing this little gold band from Etsy.


{A sweet office mate}
3. My little hula man from Hawaii. Purchased from the swap meet held twice weekly in the University of Hawaii stadium parking lot, it's a sight to be held. It was great for people watching and tchotchke-buying. I love that it reminds me of the trip of a lifetime; it was almost worth enduring a red eye home just to bring this guy back with me.




4. Adele. She has an AH-mazing voice and I can't stop listening to this song; it's beautiful. Also beautiful? Her song "Someone Like You"--check it out. It's equally amazing. She says her music is "hearbroken soul" which makes for amazing songs and lyrics.

Happy Friday!

I love the ring, it is so nice, and special, that's the best part of it! I love when you work with a kid and when you realize they've learned what you've been teaching them! I really enjoyed your blog. I'm now following from http://datssocute.blogspot. Have a great weekend! I'll be back soon &heart; BJ
