my mom has an easter dinner tradition. we wear bunny ears and get tipsy.

(another successful year HAHAHA)

her house was in the middle of re-modeling. i found this in the bathroom as a place holder for a mirror. HHAHA

im not religious at this holiday is just an excuse to have a delightful afternoon with my family : )

captain's verses...

My wild girl, we have had
to regain time
and march backward, in the distance
of our lives, kiss after kiss,
gathering from one place what we gave
without joy, discovering in another
the secret road
that gradually brought your feet close to mine,
and so beneath my mouth
you see again the unfulfilled plant
of your life putting out its roots
toward my heart that was waiting for you.
And one by one the nights
between our separated cities
are joined to the night that unites us.
The light of each day,
its flame or its repose,
they deliver to us, taking them from time,
and so our treasure
is disinterred in shadow or light,
and so our kisses kiss life:
all love is enclosed in our love:
all thirst ends in our embrace.
Here we are at last face to face,
we have met,
we have lost nothing.
We have felt each other lip to lip,
we have changed a thousand times
between us death and life,
all that we were bringing
like dead medals
we threw to the bottom of the sea,
all that we learned
was of no use to us:
we begin again,

we end again
death and life.
And here we survive,
pure, with the purity that we created,
broader than the earth that could not lead us astray,
eternal as the fire that will burn
as long as life endures.

-Pablo Neruda

making it personal...

Cleo Cummings, the inventor of 'personal shoppers' just retired after 73 years of working the sales floor at Macy's. it was an idea she came up with in the 70's. it was an instant success and all Meier & Frank stores adopted the personal shopper program, followed by the entire May Company chain and eventually, competitors including Nordstom and Macy's.

her career started simply because she was determined to wear silk clothing during The Depression so she got a job at Meier & Frank. And she stayed - more than 70 years. A top saleswoman for the company, she was famous for working 12 hour days in her five-inch heels and only in recent years, cut back to shorter ones. hahaha
