WW Reminder & Digi Stamp Boutique

Happy Saturday!  :)  We had a friend of Jeremy's over for dinner last night, I'll call him "X" - he's probably about 10 years older than us and he lives in a tent.  He owns nothing except clothes, a bicycle, a backpack and some utensils.  California is so... different.  In a good way.  People have properties where they allow people like "X" to set up their tents and stay, as long as they don't cause any trouble.  There are portable toilets on these sites.  "X" goes to bed when it gets dark out and gets up with the dawn.  He rides his bike every morning to the local coffee shop, then off to work he goes - he does side jobs, basically whatever is needed, wherever it's needed.  He relies on working and the kindness of friends to survive.  And do you know what?  He's one of the nicest, happiest, most intelligent people I've ever met.  I talked to him for hours last night and I look forward to him coming back.  My point - never judge a book by its cover.  I'm glad I didn't.  The first time I met "X" he was wearing a cool poncho and I asked him where he got it - he laughed and said the local coffee shop (the local coffee shop is also super-cool - people leave donated items and other people can pick them up and take them, everything from freshly picked lemons, herbs, and vegetables to used clothing and household items).  The next time Jeremy went out and ran into him, "X" gave Jeremy the poncho and told him to give it to me.  This guy has nothing and gave ME his poncho.  That kind of stuff speaks volumes to me.  I'm honored to know this man who most people, especially back East, would not look at twice.  I'm really glad I moved to California.   I belong here.  :)
So today we have a reminder post for you over at:

I love this image called Molly and Tom (freebie from last year) - I colored them with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.  I wanted to keep them nice and Summer-y so I paired them with some bright cardstock, digi paper, a button and ribbon from my stash.
