Here is a great series of books called "Fancy Nancy" by author Jane O'Connor, and illustrator Robin Preiss Glasser:

Yesterday I was reading the paper and came across an article about director
Derek Cianfrance (of "Unhappy Valentine") and I really connected with some of the things he was saying:

"In this movie, Michelle Williams takes a stand against something -- and it's her own stagnation. So I really hate it when people say she's not likable, because to me, she's the hero. She could have been more likable, I guess, if she were satisfied with just being a wife or a mother, but she needs more out of her life. She needs to grow. She needs to become. And those are heroic goals," he says.

"But for some reason, we don't respect a woman with those goals as much as a man with the same ones. We had a good time playing with those expectations and we talked about it a lot, because my wife is not like the women you see in movies, either. The women in my life were not drawn by a man; they are all their own people. That's why I love them."

Let it SNOW!

"Even in winter an isolated patch of snow has a special quality."

Andy Goldsworthy
British sculptor/photographer/environmentalist
Born 1956

Wonderful quote by a great artist!
If you are not familiar with his work, check out this site to see some of his work :)

The snow has come back and along with it some bitter temperatures.
But when the sun comes out, and one is bundled up enough to spend some time outdoors, it really is quite beautiful :)
