my sweet lila 
finds much joy 
in removing all heads. arms. and legs. from star war guys.
tonight I spent a bit of time
super gluing them on.
love when life's that simple.
happy monday.

yoda mail.

the house is electric with excitement
and filled with star war chatter, that I do not understand.
a package came today.
from a dear friend
from Yoda... 

the package contained Star War jammies
and a letter that reads,

"Young Padawan Trent,
Look in the mail you must! Do, or do not, there is no try.
Excited you will be to find, a gift from a galaxy,
far far away.
Strong in the force it will make you,
a strong Jedi!
May the force be with you.
The Dagobah System"

"can you even believe that? the real Yoda!"

thanks and love.

if your hubs is like mine.
he does not prefer chocolates.
a fancy watch.
or candlelight.

he simply wants to feel appreciated.
so I made him
the thanks and love box.

for all the wonderful things he does. says. and is.

thanks and love.
