You can call me Fluffy.

Autumn is undoubtedly my favorite time of year. Even though it does not translate the same way in California as it does in other parts of the country, with the changing leaves, the crispness of the air-- I'm sure if I were to experience those elements, I would only love the season more.

I love the cooling of the weather, the salt-kissed breeze in the air, earlier sunsets, pumpkin ice cream, and family togetherness.

I finally finished Randy Pausch's book The Last Lecture. I cried my eyes out! It is such a good reminder to put others first, show kindness, and taught me when I feel it impossible to pay those back who have blessed my life in tremendous ways, I can pay it forward without guilt.

I had a blast at work with the little ones. Moment of the week: Silas, (a name I haven't heard since I was in Australia), was sitting with me at a lunch table. Excited to be sitting next to me, he grabbed hold of my arm, giving it a good squeeze. He then began pumping my bicep between his fingers, stared at me in amazement and exclaimed, "Teacher! You're SO fluffy!!!" I burst out laughing and the 7 children at my table followed suit. He continued compressions for another 3 minutes, with interjections of fluffiness every 30 seconds--like some pseudo-CPR. Only much more welcome!

Love to you all! Have a great week!

After weeks of toil... the little white box from Hades has been dispelled! (HURRAY!) Alas, in the process my beloved former blogger template was lost forever! (BOO!) So...this is the interim. Since my last post, summer vacation has come to a close and I've done several more photo-shoots. I went on a great mountain vacation with the fam and started back, (Monday), at the preschool part-time.

I really am blessed in so many ways and look forward to future growth and betterment.

I hope you are all well!!!
