Love from the Mouth of Babes

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8
year-olds ,

‘What does love mean?’

The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined

See what you think:

‘When my grandmother got arthritis , she couldn’t bend over and paint her
toenails anymore.. So my grandfather does it for her all the time , even
when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.’

Rebecca- age 8

‘When someone loves you , the way they say your name is different.
You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.’

Billy – age 4

‘Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and
they go out and smell each other.’

Karl – age 5

‘Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries
without making them give you any of theirs.’

Chrissy – age 6

‘Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.’

Terri – age 4

‘Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before
giving it to him , to make sure the taste is OK.’

Danny – age 7

‘Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing ,
you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like
that.
They look gross when they kiss’

Emily – age 8

‘Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening
presents and listen.’

Bobby – age 7 (Wow!)

‘If you want to learn to love better , you should start with a friend who
you hate , ‘

Nikka – age 6
(we need a few million more Nikka’s on this planet)

‘Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt , then he wears it
everyday.’

Noelle – age 7

‘Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends
even after they know each other so well.’

Tommy – age 6

‘During my piano recital , I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at
all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling.

He was the only one doing that. I wasn’t scared anymore.’

Cindy – age 8

‘My mommy loves me more than anybody
You don’t see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.’

Clare – age 6

‘Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.’

Elaine-age 5

‘Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is
handsomer than Robert Redford .’

Chris – age 7

‘Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all
day.’

Mary Ann – age 4

‘I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes
and has to go out and buy new ones.’

Lauren – age 4

‘When you love somebody , your eyelashes go up and down and little stars
come out of you.’ (what an image)

Karen – age 7

‘Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn’t think it’s
gross..’

Mark – age 6

‘You really shouldn’t say ‘I love you’ unless you mean it. But if you mean
it , you should say it a lot. People forget.’

Jessica – age 8
And the final one

The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly
gentleman who had recently lost his wife.

Upon seeing the man cry , the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard
, climbed onto his lap , and just sat there.

When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor , the little boy said
,

‘Nothing , I just helped him cry’

St. Patrick’s Day

Wanted to get this out early. Brad and I are having our first (and prob only) wedding shower tomorrow. We are going home tonight and are super excited.

 

Here is a little St. Patrick’s Day history:

Saint Patrick’s Day (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig (The Festival of Patrick); Ulster-Scots: Saunt Petherick’s Day)[2] is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated on 17 March. It commemorates Saint Patrick (c. AD 387–461), the most commonly recognised of the patron saints of Ireland, and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland.[1] It is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially the Church of Ireland),[3] the Eastern Orthodox Church and Lutheran Church. Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official feast day in the early seventeenth century, and has gradually become a celebration of Irish culture in general.[4]

The day is generally characterised by the attendance of church services,[4][5] wearing of green attire[6] and the lifting of Lenten restrictions on eating, and drinking alcohol,[6][7][8] which is often proscribed during the rest of the season.[4][6][7][8]

Saint Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland,[9] Northern Ireland,[10] Newfoundland and Labrador and in Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora, especially in places such as Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand, among others. Today, St. Patrick’s Day is probably the most widely celebrated saint’s day in the world.[11]

Bits & Pieces: Small Caps Berlin

Spin. Sew. Sketch.

1. I’ve got travel on my mind, so it seemed only appropriate to use this week’s Bits & Pieces to spotlight German letterpress studio Small Caps Berlin. Aside from admiring the bright, graphic, and often retro-inspired paper goods artist Sabrina offers in her Etsy shop, you can also drop by her blog (in both English and German) to marvel at the gorgeous pictures of her studio and progress. The charm in Small Caps Berlin’s foreign-language greetings and vintagey elements is undeniable, and will have you yearning for the days when travel was fashionable, cosmopolitan, and just plain  new.
