One of my favorite things about my job is finding new blogs to read. Here are some of my favorites from the amazing women of the web.
A dinner menu from a TypePad blog, My Marrakesh, which is a constant source of beautiful colors and inspiring loveliness.
Another great blog that I love to love is Fly, which is a mishmash of awesome, a collage of fashion and feeling.
Kindnessgirl is another great inspiration - how I WISH I could write with her honesty and evocativeness. In that same line is Mackin Ink, the personal blog of one of the Kirtsy editors living abroad with her family in Jordan, each post illustrated with fantastic images from around the web.
Do you have a favorite little corner of the web, a place you want to sit down with a cup of tea and talk in?

I've always been a bad sleeper - god bless my parents for putting up with me as a kid who didn't really sleep. Plus, my mom says the dog used to come wake them up whenever I was up, so they probably suffered more than I did.
What used to scare me in my sleep was this loud "ka thunk ka thunk" noise that I thought was a bunch of military shells going off. (We lived right by an Army base, so this wasn't as far-fetched as it sounds.) It took me YEARS to ignore it, and even longer to figure out that the sound was my own heartbeat, which only got louder the more I held my ears.
