What's Making Me Happy This Week

// I really like the oxford shoe look for women but every time I try a pair, they look huge, clunky, and actually-belong-to-a-man instead of 'menswear-inspired'. I bought this pair of Pikolinos to wear with jeans and shorts and dresses and they are very comfortable! Look a bit like dance shoes... jazz hands! (underneath: low cut Stance socks) My other exciting shoe purchase are these Camper Twins sandals about whose understated quirkiness I can't EVEN I love it so much.

// A Tribe called Coach - one of each please!

// This hysterical slideshow of Angora rabbits in the NYT magazine (click here) RATTIT! C shouted, which is also hysterical. 


// The First Words column in the newly redesigned NYT mag: check out the origins of flawless.

// - our no-babysitter problems are a thing of the past!

// Warm Chicken and Quinoa Salad from One Pot

// Last night we washed Josie's hair in the sink and Luke raked it back from her forehead and said, 'Time for bed, Robert Duvall' and I almost fell down laughing.

  2. Hi Julie,

    I work for the company that produces Mutual of Omaha’s Aha Moment campaign; check out to see what an aha moment is and the incredible stories we’ve filmed over the last several years. As I came across your website, I couldn’t help but think that you might have an aha moment to share.

    For the 6th year, we’re taking our 34-foot Airstream mobile film studio on the road again for the 2015 Aha Moment Tour, visiting 20 cities across America to capture inspirational, life-changing aha moments from folks all over the country. We are headed to San Antonio, TX on May 14th and 15th and would love to invite you to share an aha moment, and how your life has changed since. It can be about your work, your family or other life experiences. You would just have to step into the Airstream studio for a few minutes and tell your story on film to our tour producer Jessica Henry. Your video will then be posted to, where you will be able to share it with your friends and family via email, Facebook and Twitter!

    On May 14th and 15th from 9am to 5pm, we will be parked at the San Antonio Botanical Garden, at Parkland Place & Millie Lane, San Antonio, TX 78209. Here is a map link to the location:

    We’d love to have you. Let me know as soon as possible and I can reserve your time slot.

    Many thanks!
