Ok so I may be a bit biased...

But I am in love with my good friend Kelsie's blog. I've known her a few years now, and she's got such a unique and intriguing personality. She's sort of an anachronism, in the sense that part of her seems like she belongs to another time. But to add more complexity to her personality, I'm not sure what time she'd be best in! She's one of those people who makes you feel nostalgic for lemonade stands and your 6th grade carnival, but at the same time can get you so excited for the wonders of the future. She describes herself like this, "i like cherry chapstick. i really like forget-me-nots. and i really, really like penny candies. i still read judy b jones. i don't want to grow up."* Neither do I Kels, neither do I.

She's effervescent and imaginative and just so endearing--I dare you not to love her! And of course, the reason I'm telling you all of this is because her personality comes out in her blog, you've just got to read it! Just take a glimpse into her life and you'll want to be her best friend. She's just one of those girls. Check her out at http://thoughtsfromthegirlnextdoor.blogspot.com/

Here's part of one of her recent posts where she quotes e.e Cummings:

"so, ee cummings, you know that everything you have to say always makes me happy:
and today wouldn't be today without reading (and sharing) this.

who knows if the moon's
a balloon,coming out of a keen city
in the sky--filled with pretty people?
(and if you and i should

get into it,if they
should take me and take you into their balloon,
why then
we'd go up higher with all the pretty people

than houses and steeples and clouds:
go sailing
away and away sailing into a keen
city which nobody's ever visited,where

Spring) and everyone's
in love and flowers pick themselves.

--this poem just feels like spring."**

Well Kels, I added a slide show of spring so everybody can enjoy the new season with you!
