Winnie the Pooh the Movie

I had heard that this was coming out, but last night was the first time I saw the trailer. I was laughing out loud & close to tears at the same time. It reminds me of my mom, who loved these adorable characters, and just seeing this two-minute trailer makes me feel like a little kid.

"You must be catching a cold." ... just thinking of this line makes me smile.

Thanks, iVillage!

Thanks so much, iVillage for posting our Summer Notepads in their round up Fourth of July Frugal Finds: Red, White & Blue under $50.

They included some great stuff. I especially like this Anchor Doormat. It's not very Brooklyn but I'm tempted:)

Google Chrome Ad

In honor of Father's Day, I'm posting this ad that tugs at my new-parent heart strings & makes me cry every time I see it - even if I just catch a few seconds of it.

I blame my little sack of sugar.

From {Vacation} Fridays

We took Griffin to PA last weekend to be baptized, along with his youngest cousin. This shot above shows my favorite part of the ceremony - when the priest raised Griffin up and said, "I present Griffin" with applause from the entire congregation. It was such a special moment.

So yes, his pants are unbuttoned. He's a hefty little fellow, and Mama was trying to give him some breathing room in his fancy seersucker slacks. I'd like to think he didn't cry because he was comfortable:)

I'll share a few more pics next week. Have a great weekend, everyone.

(Thanks for the great shot, C!)

Goodbye Home

One of my best friends left New York this week. I know it's the start of bigger & better things for her, and I try to focus on that to make myself feel better, but I miss her already. And terribly. We've shared several homes over the past 16 years - Pennsylvania, Maine and New York - and I feel a little lost knowing she's no longer a walk down the hall, a stroll across the quad or a quick subway ride uptown. I'm not sure what I'm going to do without her, but I think it involves being better at talking on the phone.

She recently posted some of her favorite New York snapshots & I'm re-posting a few of them here. Such great New York moments.

I miss you Miss Lizzy!!!! Go get em sister.

Notepads are up!

Get em while they last. Our summer notepads are up! Soon I'll post a list of stores that carry them.

Check out my boat shoe - appropriate given the imagery:) When I design holiday cards, I wear a Santa hat. No, no I do not.

Notepads: Available NEXT week!

I lied. The summer notepads will be available next week, not today. Sorry! We had to make sure that our store shipments got out first. So we'll have the new notepads online next week, and we'll announce our list of new stores.

Have a great first-weekend-of-summer! I know it's not technically summer, but it sure feels like it. Enjoy!

Summer Notepads!

If you've been reading this blog for a while now, you know I'm a list maker. I have a TeuxDeux list going at all times for all deadlines concerning L&H, and I keep at least three notepads on my desk for notes - ideas, sketches, quick reminders, doctors' phone numbers, notes to John: Don't forget to buy diapers!, etc. It's been two years since we've offered new notepads, and after our Outlet wiped us out, I was taking notes on random pieces of paper that wound up on the floor & then the recycling bin. I knew I needed to bring them back. And what better time than summer with all my favorite images - an anchor, fish, sailboats, crabs, stripes, and sandpipers. All available online on Friday. So stay tuned!
