8.    If you had the chance to change

name would you? And what would

you change it to?

Not anymore, because it's part of my

Today, when I told my guy my favorite part of his body was his brain.

I said, "What would happen if you got brain damage?
Then you wouldn't be the same.

What would I do?"

He said,
"Then you'd find a new part to be your favorite."

Yes, I would.

  4. I feel inspired by the 60s as well.. that's my favorite decade of all.. late 60s to be exact... would have loved to be BFF with janis joplin!..
    congrats on the award!
    and I just added pumpkin to my bucket list haha.. it's not very common to see pumpkins here, I think they only bring them during halloween and that's it.. not much pumpkin fans in my town..
    stay cool!

  5. I love that Altazurra outfit!! Well above the red stripes that is, I'm not totally digging those. The slightly puffed-up shoulders and slim arms are so elegant.

  12. Awww, Happy Belated Thanksgiving! I love your art journal part about your husband's brains being your favorite part, that's so genuine and something that's so true! When we fall in love with someone, it's really their mind that we connect with, not their looks. Very, very sweet. :)

  18. Ha, the "what would you change your name to" is an interesting kinda question. I love asking my friends what name I look like. I'm told that if I wasn't a Sabrina, I'd be a Christina or Samantha!
