a simile, a metaphor, and a thank you


My blog is like Holden’s home haircut: it’s choppy, it’s too long in some places, too short in others, and it seems to emit an overall incoherence in general. But, it’s homemade, it comes from the heart, and it offers a little bit of practicality and a little bit of humor to our day.

And like Holden making his way into a world that for the most part couldn’t care less about his haircut, it feels so nice when people acknowledge the tidbits and “whatknot” that I send out via my blog.

All this is to say: thank you Simply, for acknowledging my little blog with this super sweet Kindred Spirit award. In my imaginary perfect world (very similar to the bygone days of yesteryear but with laptops and cuisinarts), we’d be able to hang out, chat, drink tea, eat cookies and connect as moms, women, and human beings face to face. You’d definitely be invited to my imaginary book club.

I feel a connection in some way to all the blogs that I read over there on my blogroll (and many others that I haven't had a chance to update in my bloglines), so please consider yourself invited to my tea party as well!

I'm a sucker for a good metaphor, and the haircut one really did it for me. I've got a cup of tea beside me right now--thanks for inviting me to share it with you!
