The headband swap of 2011

So my favorite New Yorker, Danielle, arranged a headband swap on her happy little space of the blogosphere called Take Heart (see the cutie deer on the sidebar??). She thought a few blog friends would participate. But lo and behold. Fifty friends wanted to partake, and I was one.

I got paired up with my new friend Kyle. She blogs at Like the Rain. Not only does she have great taste, she has a beautiful heart. I'm so enjoying her blog, where she talks of life and love and family with transparency and resolve.

I like that.

She is intentional and offers her story and life up to the Lord's use. You should visit her blog right now.

Well, after you look at my cool headband. Check it.

It is so colorful and beautiful. The middle section is like a piece of fabric from a carpet bag or a tapestry. The edges are beaded in turquoise. I LOVE it. Thank you so much Kyle!!

Even more than the headband, I love that we're new blog friends.

{Sorry for the impersonal pics. You get just the headband today. I'm not up to par, as my generous children have shared all their germs with me. This shot was taken between sneezes. But cute hair accessories are helping me feel better}

OOH, and tomorrow is top of the page's 1-year anniversary!  So stay tuned....
