Downton Abbey obsessed

Love love love this show. Am already excited for season three next year! This slide show from Paper Mag showing the stars in their period dress and in "real life" was so neat. I love how transformed they were for their particular parts.

Phone Date

I have started a phone date with one of my oldest and dearest friends, (and amazingly talented graphic designer) - Loo. We call each other every Thursday morning and just touch base. Our check in phone dates are something I look forward to each week. Maybe we follow up on a doctor's visit, updates on our families, challenges of being a mother and juggling a career, nothing prolific but keeps us current on the latest in our respective lives. I read somewhere that having a community or a regular gathering with friends increases one's longevity and health. In fact, this article stated that a once a month meeting of friends, just once a month, can really improve one's well being. I like that.

Paradise Lost

A few nights ago, we watched this brilliant documentary, Paradise Lost. Three young innocent boys (now men) spent 18 years in prison for a crime they didn't commit. One of these men, really hit a chord with me; Jason Baldwin, what an amazing person. If you get the chance, check out the three part documentary on HBO.
