Mother's Day!

I think today is another quick post. I just wanted to share with you guys what I got for my mother for mother's day:

Isn't it adorable? It is a Lawn Ohm. He is a meditating lawn gnome, which makes me smile every time I look at him. He was made by a local artist in Portland who casts each one out of cement. I just knew that my mother would love him and find a good spot for him. I bought him from my friend Susan, who is a member of my knit group. She has an awesome website called Simple Family Living which sells natural and organic products, which includes organic yarn! She hasn't put the Lawn Ohm's up yet, because they are cement and shipping costs could get a bit high. Still I think they are really awesome and reasonably priced. If you want one, I am sure that you can message Susan directly through her site.

As long as I am promoting my friends, I thought that I would mention my friend Amy's new photography site. I have been helping her out a little to figure out business cards and such. She is an amazing photographer! She has an incredible ability to capture candid shots. Make sure to look through some of the wedding photos she has taken. If you are in the area and need a good photographer, make sure to check her out!
