Boho Jewels

I'm currently loving the boho look. 
Loose wavy hair, flowy tops. Anything Ikat. I'm all about that.
I picked up these pieces of jewelry lately and I've received numerous compliments.
The Sky Drop earrings are from Anthropologie. If I could change just one thing, it would be to make them BIGGER!
Now my coworkers have me hooked to these charm bracelets from Alex and Ani. I currently have three, one with the charms of an owl and I've added my fluer de lis to the other. Now I want this one, this one, and don't forget this one.

What Whit's Reading

Do you ever read a book so good that in the middle of reading it you want to slow down, savor each page, because the closer you get to finish it, the closer you feel like you are losing a friend?

Ok, maybe a little overly dramatic, but I swear when I describe this book to my friends, this is the analogy that I use. 

From the first page I knew I was hooked to this quirky, eclectic, nine year old narrator.

"What about a little microphone? What if everyone swallowed them, and they played the sounds of our hearts through little speakers, which could be in the pouches of our overalls? When you skateboarded down the street at night you could hear everyone's heartbeat, and they could hear yours, sort of like a sonar. One weird thing is, I wonder if everyone's hearts would start to beat at the same time, like how women who live together have their menstrual periods at the same time, which I know about, but I really don't want to know about. That would be so weird, except at the place in the hospital where babies were born would sound like a crystal chandelier in a houseboat, because the babies wouldn't have had time to match up their heartbeats yet. And at the finish line at the end of the New York City Marathon it would sound like war."

Now as a warning, this book is not a fun, light read by any means, but it is a great book that will make you think.

Happy Heart Day

What's not to love about a holiday filled with love, cheer and maybe even a little chocolate? Regardless of who you are spending this holiday with (in the past I've spent this day with significant others, best friends, even just myself!), I hope you are having a great one. Just let me know if I need to send anyone some chocolate.... ;)

Right now, I'm about to head to a low key dinner with Cory. That awesome man thought he was going to work today so he surprised me at my job with flowers. So not only do I get a lovely flower arrangement, I get to see him as well!
