A shout out.

I am eternally grateful to Leticia @ La Dama. I ordered the knit rosary in both colors, and they were in my mailbox in the most comforting hand-addressed manila envelope on one of the hardest days I've had in a very long time. Sounds cheesy, but I had a very genuine spiritual moment. I know it's intended to be a necklace, and don't think I haven't had one on every second of the past week and a half, but know that I have prayed through many rosaries since they got here. So thankful.

Creepy cool.

My best friend in the whole universe got married on Saturday (I was his best man!). Big Catholic mass, beautiful music, a beautiful church. Brought back lots of memories of Catholic school, growing up. Uncomfortable but comforting. I can't explain it. Saw this necklace on Rumi's blog, and didn't blink..I'm kind of over her, I'm sorry, I know that's fashion-blog sacrilege. But when another blogger led me to La Dama, and I saw the necklace on its own, that old Catholic guilt kicked me in the heart, and I have to have it. I might even wear it to confession. Or therapy. I feel a disturbing fascination coming on..

La Dama knit rosary, $6.

[Oh, and apologies for up and disappearing after the August flurry of posting. Being someone's best man takes up an amazing acreage of your brain. Not that I'm complaining, AT ALL. Loved every freaking minute of it.]
