fall happy

every year i forget how much i love fall... and oh man, do i love it!!! i'm giddy all over again when the air is crisp and the clouds are grey and i have to wear a scarf to keep my neck warm. i get my fill of the changing trees down 22nd or Jamboree...then there's the pumpkin patch - ah we meet again!
this is my favorite season... until december comes.

boycotting: the iTunes store

yep, you heard me... i'm boycotting the monopolist of today's music industry as we know it: the iTunes store.
why the heck have i chosen to do this? well, the answer is simple really. i'm through with buying a few songs for $9.99 (or one song for a mere $.99) and nothing to show for it... when i buy a record, on the other hand, i get a little package of goodness: it gives me a glimpse into the artist's life with thank-you's and lyrics, credits those who have worked on the record and who actually wrote that one song that leaves me inspired and wanting to hear more, and the artwork they've chosen to reflect and represent the record... oh, yeah, and listening to the record all the way through - as the artist intended it to be.
so long instant-gratification... i won't miss you.

for the love of soap

yesterday, nic and i went into bath and body works to purchase an aromatic gift for his grandma... and to our pleasant surprise, they were having a huge sale on hand soap!! 5 for $15... woo hoo! so the husband and i excitedly picked out 10 different bottles from their wide selection of scented hand wash.
we walked out with a huge bag and smiles on our faces, knowing that we wouldn't have to go a single day with an empty soap bottle in our bathroom for the next 3 years... it's the little things in life...
