-Look at this gorgeous NY calendar ($24) you can buy on-line from photographer/designer Jenna Park of Sweet Fine Day, here in Brooklyn. I love it so much. For November, 30% of proceeds go to Hurricane relief. So sweet of her to do this. It's the perfect Christmas gift.
Koseli Cummings (see gorgeousness above). It's fun to read her posts each day - they are delightful. I loved this one about Dumbo's beloved vintage carousel that survived the hurricane. "Meet Koseli" and see her own personal blog here.
this article about the Mormons helping people in Connecticut after the hurricane. So inspiring. Yay for all the churches and organizations out there joining together to serve. They are all coming out in droves. Congregation Beth Elohim in Park Slope is doing wonders. Community organization is the best.
-Park Slope Parents - THE parenting website of all websites here in my hood - is currently collecting "Happy Cards" and "Happy Letters" from children so they can uplift some of the elderly evacuees in a nearby shelter (so sweet!) If you know some children who would like to send some love, send to: Operation Feel Good, 438 12th Street, Ph C Brooklyn, NY 11215. They will get them to the right place.
photos and this post will entice you to visit Iceland, too. (btw, this new to me Brooklyn blog - bigBANG Studio - is dreamy. Thanks, Marlene, for passing along!)
-Are you guys in the mood for gift guides? I personally love seeing people's selections. Danny and I are working on some ideas for you. But here's mine from last year. And Danny's. :)
-8 ways to tell if your man means it when he says he's ready for marriage. (These are basic clues, but sometimes we still need these.)
-Bond. Will you see it? It's getting good ratings. Danny and I love a good movie date night :)
-Speaking of movies, they just released a 2nd trailer for Les Miserables. We're obsessed. :)
Wishing you all a warm and happy weekend! We'll be trying to get gas (odd days for me, even days for Danny). And, we'll be heading out to Coney Island.
off I go for a run,
