July 19, 1985!!!!!

I bought my house in 2001 and hadn’t looked into the attic since then. But this year, to check the insulation, I grabbed a ladder and took a peek. My attic is one of those that is accessible only through a hatch in the ceiling, and you really can’t use it to hang out in … Continued

Found soaked in the runoff of a snowbank in my doctor’s office parking lot early one morning — this sticky-noted assertion pasted to a piece of blue lined paper. (Blue, it’s useful to note, is the color of like like. And anyone with experience will tell you that like like = love.)

Let’s Hung Out Together

I found this on my friend’s fridge. Her housemate found it six years ago in a university dining hall. I love that her roommate has been carrying this around for six years, knowing how special it is, just waiting for a motivated person with a scanner to share it with y’all.

Play Date

I found this Post-it note on the sidewalk while walking with my daughter. Love the bee, flower, grass, sun and cloud… I also like how Maiya’s friend switched to the red pen. Hope they had fun.

B.I.Y.A.

Found during the holiday season at Cary Towne Center Mall. Believe in you always!
