I don't build any extra minutes, even seconds, into my day to account for unexpected delays for getting where I need to be. For example, I did not anticipate a stoplight being out on Ashland Avenue this morning, thus making me late for an appointment. Stoplights, garbage trucks blocking side streets, street closings, long lines at Starbucks, and yes, even removing my gloves to search for that email that tells me where I need to be can knock me off my schedule in a second. And this is why the people behind Echo Design's (previously posted about their bags here) touch gloves are pure genius. Perfect stocking stuffer for that fast texting friend.
At some point, my sweet two year old and I started calling each other besties. She has other besties too, like her wa-wa's (aka grandmas), her favorite sitters, sometimes her brother, and other "friends" that live in her crib. One day she received a pair of pink leopard print rain boots and that night she insisted on sleeping with her new goodies....they were brand new, of course, and hadn't been worn. She snuggled those boots like a worn out loved teddy bear. This blog is to keep track of all my besties and pink leopard print wellies. xo
