a little bit obsessed: laptop accessories

I am going to be receiving a Macbook light from my school in the fall! Eeeek! so pumped! Lately I've been goin' a little crazy on Etsy looking at cases, skins, sleeves, and stickers. Everything is just so darn cute! Here are a few of my favorite laptop accessories!
1., 2., 3., 4., 5., 6.

I guess it's not really a habit but sometimes when I sleep I wrap my big toes together without noticing it!
3. do you have any weird phobias
I don't anymore but when I was little I was scared to walk near rain-drains because I thought cougars lived in them. (I was a very imaginative child)

people who ask for help without trying very hard themselves

away from the water
10. what was your first stuffed animal and what was its name
my first stuffed animal was a very generic looking teddy bear except that its "fur" was this rainbow watercolor print. I actually don's know where it is currently to take a picture but I found one on ebay! It's name was (is) "rainbow bear".
11. do you have any weird body skills

 15. what did you used to wear that you thought was cool but now you realize it 
In fourth grade I wore dresses over jeans or colored yoga pants with mary janes and socks. Yeah, I was cool

cherry lemonade.

One of my favorite parts of summer is the local jazz festival. I've grown up listening to jazz. I will always love sitting in the living room in the evening listening to the smooth jazz channel on the TV, talking and laughing with my family. Jazz is so calming and relaxing and just a really comfy place for me. I also love this event because the artists never disappoint! My favorite band tonight was The Elders!

But what I love the most is seeing all the different people coming together to chill and enjoy great music.

It's one of the things that makes my heart so happy. People tapping their feet and sipping cherry lemonades and scatting and belly laughing and dancing and clapping they're hands. Purely enjoying life. That's how life should be all the time. Don't you think?

Tonight I would like to propose a toast to a life full of tapping feet and scatting and belly laughing and dancing and clapping hands. So let's all raise our cherry lemonades and just 
purely. enjoy life.
with love,
