Urban Outfitters ring holder, Owl mug & letter from a friend}
Can we talk about this scarf? I know I've mentioned how soft and warm it is before, but I need to mention it again. It's soft and it's warm and the fact that it's as big as a blanket is a huge plus.
If you're wondering what that weird gray thing is it's a computer riser. It lifts my computer to stand at a comfortable angle, so that it's easier on my hands and wrists to type all day at work. You might want to think about getting one. (By the way, it comes as a pack of two; one for home, one for work!)
In January of 2011, I went to Israel on birthright and became friends with Shaked, who was an Israeli soldier at the time. Two weeks ago, we decided to become pen pals and she sent me her first letter a few days ago! Yay!
