Right before our trip to Israel this beautiful little hand-bound journal designed by bookmaking goddess Jen of Painted Fish Studio arrived to my home in exchange for, surprise, a painted fish. She also sent along some other little goodies including a slippery mood fish, the likes of which I hadn't seen in probably two decades, and some fruity Japanese tape dispensing thingy which my daughter quickly destroyed. My husband saw the journal and admired the craftsmanship and then had a chuckle. What is your thing with orange? 

I have no idea what he's talking about.

Ooohh, journal love! Beautiful design with bits of glory shining through.

And are you kidding me? All these orange lovers, wooohoooo! Orange is my favorite color. I love your happy orange decor! I once had an entire room painted orange. Blazingly gorgeous.

Speaking of gorgeous...your travel photos below! Now I feel like putting chocolate milk in a plastic bag and suckling.

I LOVE your sunny oranges. This would be my obsession with turquoise. I try other colors. I do. DIGGING the new Ketubah! What a sweet Spring house blessing!
