That's the feeling I'm after




















Dear Marc, yesterday I went to town to shop. I returned with something for everyone in the family. I felt like I was the mother of the Ingalls family. For me this is a great feeling, since Little House has such a big place in my heart (is this where I should write something about how I love it despite the racism towards the native Americans? Or Norwegians, with Nelly being such a Scandibitch?)

I mean, the feeling of buying 4 dresses for my daughter, one outfit for my son and a shirt for their dad and bringing it all home to our little cabin in the jungle, it was so great.
















But even better was the look on Vanja's face as she tried her first dress on. She just couldn't believe anything could be that pretty. I've told her she'll get a new dress every Tuesday we're here.

Joel is now dressing like an Indian prince, a look he seems very content with.




















And as I look at Vanja in her new dress, I keep thinking "that's the feeling I'm after!" as I browse your looks and others. Perhaps it's a feeling most easily felt at age 4. Perhaps at my own ripe age, I'll have to settle for the contentment of giving that feeling to others. Is that how you feel, Mr Jacobs?

You give us this feeling:



















Thankyou, Mr J!

love

Emi, your kids are aDORABLE.

I wish you knew me a little better so that you understood the compliment fully-- I typically can't stand kids and cuteness doesn't work on me.

But yours... freakin' CUUUUUTE.

Dear Emi, thank you for being brave and good and taking your little people abroad. You give hope to those of us hunkered down in freezing Canada with the feeling that we will never again escape the centrally-heated bungalow and "Dora's Pirate Adventure." You did it! Hurray!

vill till indien nu. har pratat om att vi alla, exfruar, äkta makar, barn, alla barn, bonusbröder och hela konkarongen ska åka till indien. till rajastan eller kerala. nån gång blir det av.
igår var jag så nära att FÅ en biljett till goa. men den var bara på en vecka. indien måste få mer tid än så. får hålla till godo med teneriffa så länge - jobbresa, men en varm sådan.

Your blog is so much fun, I just love it! I just wanted to mention to all that Marc Jacobs will be on Oprah Monday :)

If I get a new dress, will I be that happy? Frankly, I'm a bit jealous...

Perhaps there should be an updated version of the old "I'd like to buy the world a Coke" thing...something like, "Marc Jacobs would like to buy the world his clothes"? Then, maybe we'd all be so happy!

I felt *EXACTLY* that way when I got my first Marc Jacobs multi pocket bag. It is big and roomy and wonderful. Lots of little pockets to hide my wares and cell phone and notes. Cell phones and notes are wares I guess.

I now feel that way every time I wear my black velvet Marc Jacobs jacet with the huge buttons.

Joing E in the gratitude to you Mr. Jacobs!

I agree with eebs your children are beautiful!

Är det där möjligtvis Red House i Varkala? Ruggigt likt.
