    To Joanna (of A Cup of Jo),

    Your blog makes me happy every day.

    Congratulations on your pregnancy! Here's a sweet hip hop song you can sing to your "son"light when he arrives.

    To Martha (of Uniform Natural),

    I have never forgotten your post about helping your 4-year old make an abstract painting. I wasn’t a mom yet and could only think if I’m ever a mom, I hope I can provide that kind of relationship for my child. And now as a mom, I’m even more in awe of what you said and did.

    I know you are no stranger to Uta Barth, but there is such synergy in your eye and hers. I wanted to send you this image that hopefully cheers your day – gives you a minute of pause – provides a breath of inspiration. You do that with your work and photos so often for me.

    Happy Valentine's day,

    To Christy (of Following Elias),

    Christy, I've been following you since Elias (born just shy of 25 weeks!) was a little guy. You tell the story of a special needs family in a way that moves me to my core -- and almost always makes me cry. I remember reading about Elias's first steps. Well. Oh, my.

    And now, you have a new baby -- Olive! Congratulations! I'll plan to keep reading. And probably weeping, too. In a good way. :)

    I chose these booties for you because of the olive color, of course, and because I'm so happy for you about becoming a mama again. Wishing you joy!

    To Laura (of Kirtsy + Mom 2.0),

    As the amazing brainchild behind the Mom 2.0 Defining a Movement Art Exhibit, you deserve a spa day for all your hard work.

    To Ellis (of alter eco project),

    I am so glad we're friends: every film junkie needs someone to make her feel like her addiction is OK!

    I picked this modern polaroid camera designed by Paul Giambarba because it is so freakin' cool! Just like you!
