just one pic! the local brilliance that has spread around the world!

the cups are red...

... and the spirit of season is kindred.

“The red cups have taken on almost a cultural role, at least in the US, and now in a lot of other markets around the world as well. When the cups turns red at Starbucks, that’s one of the first cues that the holidays are upon us. The emotional connection that our store partners (employees) have when they open that first box of the red cups and start using them that first day, and the emotional connection they see from their customers, that’s what we strive for. They see that surprise and excitement: ‘Oh, the red cups are at Starbucks!’ It’s really special and all of us in the studio feel privileged to do the work that can create such an emotional moment and connection in our stores between our partners and our customers.”
– Terry Davenport, Senior Vice President, Global Brand and Creative Studios at Starbucks
to join in the fun, many of the other coffee houses
 and drive-thru's have been inspired by the mermaid
to go red for the season. 
 when i sip my peppermint mocha or eggnog latte in the pretty
red cup,(under my breath), i make a sweet and warm toast, 
or say a simple little prayer for peace on earth and
good will to all. 
isn't it marketing brilliance at it's best?
happy weekend to you!

just one pic...

last Friday, on University Hill, at Brigham Young University.


i remember when i bought him the book Friday Night Lights.

he devoured it on a weekend between his high school studies, 

football, and his Fall baseball league.  

 i had hoped to share more images of "the grands" from this past 

weekend's Fall activities. the main event ended up occurring 

smack in the middle of Ben's nap time, so i stayed behind 

and cared for him while Jason, Chrislyn and Holland went on.  

 Ben and I had the sweetest time together. 

we sang, we played, and he gave me his biggest hugs so far!  

i was a bit disappointed that i didn't have the  

images that i intended to share today, but my 

one on one time with Ben was "the best"!

after i returned home from the kid's house, 

i popped onto facebook and saw the image of Jay above.

"just one pic!"

 ...a keeper image for the 
sports guy's mom...and...the sweetest 
memory from a Saturday afternoon with
 my littlest grand! 

let's hear it for my boys of Fall! 

enjoy the new week ahead!


i see November!
