Little Love Notes

I’m having trouble pulling together these little love notes tonight because I feel overwhelmed with sadness over the events that took place at an elementary school today in Connecticut. I don’t want to talk politics or morals. I just want to express my condolences, my positive energy for all of those affected, and my fear for the mess we’ve made. I know these acts of violence are rare, but they still feel too frequent. My heart hurts for the families tonight.

As for a few little weekend notes …

Dear weekend, even on the heels of tragedy, I’m glad you’re here. Hubs and I are taking a one-day vacation a few hours from home tomorrow. It’s just an excuse to relax. Here’s to hoping I can put down the phone and the laptop.

Dear wedding and Disney-movie enthusiasts alike, this wedding shoot reminds me of a scene from ‘Beauty and the Beast’ … which makes it awesome.  Also, the wedding dress is dip-dyed maroon velvet and white lace.  #socool

Dear Jimmy Kimmel, thanks for making me smile.  Your version of “Call Me Maybe” with Carly Rae Jepsen and The Roots is pretty awesome, but your impromptu dance performance with Christina Aguilera is just plain badass.

Dear funny girls, kudos! (Vanity Fair)

Dear Anthropologie, this might be your best sale yet.  (Psst, Anthro is offering $25 off for every $100 you spend with code: MERRYMERRY. This could be dangerous.)

Dear readers, if you have a second, VOTE for me to become the Rimmel London Blogger! #stayglossy (And THANK YOU!)
