some sweet little girl came in my booth and talked with me about visiting her aunt in new york and helping her make jewelry. she had on these great little ice cream shoes and i couldn't resist snapping this photo (with her mom's permission). she was carrying around a little cup of pretzels and just talking away. she was too sweet.

on another note, a woman came in my booth later that day with a schnazzy pair of black sandals on and a fabulous pedicure in a color scheme that i used growing up. each toenail was painted a different color....all pale pale opaque easter egg colors: pink, yellow, green, blue, purple. i was so excited when i saw them that i jumped up with my camera and ask the woman if i could snap a photo of them. i could tell by the look on her face that she was afraid of my request and she high-tailed it out of my booth saying "no thank you". i really didn't mean any harm. i cracked up!!!

my friend ben couldn't resist using the pillows i just made for some eyes above my burn.....

oh, it's so good to be home...i've had a long nap (since i got up at 4:00am to catch my plane home), drank some kombucha, ate an enormous salad with my fave balsamic vinegar dressing and am feeling the comforts of home. it was such an incredible adventure in ann arbor, but i am a happy girl to be back home.Β  i'll feel even better tomorrow after i go to yoga. i've had a week off and my body (AND MIND) are missing it :O)

hope you had a great weekend too.
