Warning
Seeing is Believing
look behind you! no, the other way! PEACHES!

hello, hello! lately, i seem to be saying 'the writing is on the wall' a lot and generally referencing the book who moved my cheese? by spencer johnson. it's a memorable story about two mice who go to the same spot for cheese each day, until the cheese supply dwindles. simply written, it's a short and sweet story about how people deal with change and very compelling. hope you have a lovely weekend and find your cheese just where you left it.

xo, cindy

ps yellow by coldplay is still one of the sweetest songs of all time and the video contains a message for chris martin - it's raining, at least put your hood up! did i ever tell you that he ran past our car with his surfboard in the hamptons? it's true. we were thisclose to having him run into our car ;).

Love these pictures. They look so cool altogether also!

I am jealous that you were so close to Chris Martin in the Hamptons. He is so dreamy:)

thanks guys! as for the mice, one mouse adapted very well to the change and one seemed like it did not, but may have had some help in the end ;). i think it depends on if the reader is a pessimist or an optimist.

thanks for your comment Cindy, it made me laugh out loud! I like the giant squirrel. Lately for us it's been more like who jumped on my cheese and squashed it to death!

Love that book, song and your photos!!! I found myself listening to Chris Martin & Michael Stipe's version of "In the Sun" about 5 times today.

at the time we saw him, i didn't care that much about coldplay anymore. now, i might turn around. i know the beach he was going to and it would have been interesting to see this lanky english lad try to surf.
