stuff I'm liking

There are some things you can take for granted in life, and for me, it's definitely my health.

I'm a relatively healthy person and it's so disconcerting to get really sick. I honestly was one with my couch for a lot of last week and part of this week and now that I'm feeling better, I feel like I have a whole new lease on life. (as cheesy as that sounds.)

other stuff I like this week:

>> soup recipes. check out my pinterest board; I'm obsessed. And I just ordered an immersion blender from Amazon and I can't wait for it. (I'm stalking the mailbox daily.)

>> I think I'm on a recipe kick (must be fall?) but crockpot apple butter? sign me up!

>> I love things that give back. A purchase of these prints sponsors a child through Compassion International.

>> um have you seen these iphone cases from Yellow Heart Art? I gave in and bought this one

>> other things I like: finishing an epic book, plans to go to San Diego next weekend to visit my best friend and see this girl (as well as sneak in a visit to this girl), perfect weather (70s here in Seattle) and my alma mater winning last night.

>> also, like everyone else, I cannot get enough of the new Mumford and Sons album. Thank you Spotify for letting me listen to it free. 

>> also, I am really excited for my fall (winter?) line. It's been a long time coming and little things have been delaying it but I promise, promise it will be debuting soon. Thank you to all your support and understanding. 

xo, erika
