Love List

   

This weather. It's incredible and I'm so happy it's sticking around for the weekend. It reminds me of spring in the mountains. When spring really began to set in last year, my friends and I would often forgo studying and working on our master's projects to take in the sun at the local park about a mile from our apartment. It was too gorgeous not to. It was a perfect piece of flat land surrounded by mountains, a large stream, and a farm. The sky was always blue, the grass always green, and the air always clean. 


Skype. It took several months, but I finally got my parents to purchase a webcam. I haven't seen my parents since Christmas and won't be seeing them until the end of April. That's just too long. So we chat with them a few times every week and it's wonderful. Almost as nice as actually being home. Chloe (their boxer) is so curious about who they are talking with inside of the computer. It's adorable how she tilts her head tying to figure it out.


Maeby our little poser. She's adorable. Sometimes I glance over at her taking a nap or pouting because we don't want to play and she musters up the best poses. Ever. It's as if she's saying, "Look Mom, I can pose too. Put me on your blog." She's a ham and I love her to death.



The blogging community's support for Japan. What's happened in Japan is devastating. Today is Blogger's Day of Silence for Japan - it's amazing and heartwarming to see so many participate  to show their support. I love it. Rumi stated in her personal account of the tragedy {read it} that in the midst of earthquake she had feeling that were "equal parts heartbreaking and terrifying." To me, hat line says everything. We must continue to pray and support the people and country of Japan.

The picture of your adorable dog is great! But the arms look a little too human like haha.

I guess I meant "legs" instead of "arms". Ha!

Aww I know how parents can be "afraid" of technology, so glad you can skype with them often, know you won't miss them so much, both pups are adorable but Maeby totally rocks the pose, hope you have a wonderful sunny weekend!

I love this little look into your lovely life, Linley! (wow, that was a lot of "L's" in one sentence!)

The skype-ing with the folks is my face...they are too cute. :)

Sooo cute, both dogs rock but Maeby's pose is... I'm lost for words!

Video chatting used to confuse my parents' dog too, he would go around the pc to see where the voices were coming from. Too funny! ;)
