This morning Harper and I put on our glad rags and headed to the Butterfly House where we took about fifty photographs of butterflies eating rotten bananas, landing on top of each other, doing what butterflies do, etc.
When we got home, my computer decided it would no longer communicate with the camera, and the memory card within the camera decided it would only retain seventeen of the photos we had taken.
Toni at Creve Coeur Camera saved the day by recovering those seventeen photos (and one video!) onto a CD for us. (We then reformatted the memory card, and all is well. I’m boring you so much right now. Do you want to hear about my new eyebrow gel? I bought it with Blackbird in mind, and now my brows look much less anemic. Sleep tight, my friends. I’m eating Ritz crackers.)
Anyway, here is my favorite photo of the day.
I’m wearing a penguin necklace! Harper is wearing one, too! AND, according to Harper, when we both wear our penguin necklaces, we’re BFFs!
The video is worth the cost of file recovery. (Which was five dollars, if you’re keeping track of my expenses.)
Aren’t you glad I went with Paganini instead of Butterfly Kisses?
I need to tell you a weird story about my milk man. (I now have a milk man.) Meet me here next week?

I finally figured out who you look like to me! Morena Baccarin, who is gorgeous.
I want to bottle Harper’s happiness! What a great day with mom!
What a great photo! Deserves to be your favorite for sure.
LOVE the video. Is that you playing?
my daughter would totally love a penguin necklace!! such cuteness!
Wait! Yes! I want to hear about the eyebrow gel, mine are terribly thin, and I’m always looking for ways to help them!
Reminds me of the quote: Little girls, like butterflies, need no excuse.

(I’m literal like that). Can’t wait for the milkman story. I hear so few milkman stories ;-)
I absolutely love the picture of you two. Awesome.
this video is my new Favorite Thing.
I can’t believe I’m from St. Louis and I’ve never gone to the butterfly house. This is totally on my to do list this year.
A vignette from my head:
“Why would Harper wear Glad Rags?
(a few seconds pass)
Oohh. Little g little r.”
