Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.

Our three-digit heat and dry, dry drought made soaking in the pool extra inviting this weekend. I don't tan – I just get more freckles. So, after this weekend, you can now play connect the dots with my freckles and I think my eau de chlorine perfume might be permanent.
Here's the inside.
While I was floating and crafting this weekend (yes, a charmed life), my daughter was launching her new web, graphic and blog design business. Make a Mama proud and go check out Caitlin's new feb10 design site and The Juice blog, all launched with the help of big brother's e-marketing business, Peitho Media. I'm so proud of them both. They pulled off in one week what's taken me four years of blogging to learn. Genius, those two! Caitlin's a great writer, and she's created a fun place to hang out in at both her website and blog. In her first blog post she asks: "If you could design a logo to represent who you are, what would it be?" My brain hurts trying to figure that one out – I guess that's what she's here for. What do you think?
I'm still basking in the glow of my stint last month with the My Favorite Things (MFT) team. MFT sent me so many goodies, i didn't have enough time in one month to play with all of them. This cutie is from the July 2011 release, Pure Innocence Make a Splash.
