was actually really interesting.
even though i love, love, love to read, 
no one is crazy about reading assignments. even me.
this assignment wasn't so bad, & i read every page of it. 
this book is all about the phenomena of popularity.
how suddenly, out of nowhere, something will pop up everywhere.
how fads & fashions begin, grow, and hit the tipping point.
it's tremendously fascinating to study trends.
if you're with me on this, you'll appreciate this read.
and you'll never forget what the word ubiquitous means.
what prompted me to remember & mention this book was
a post that i read over on design sponge the other day.
read about a new trend here
haven't seen any of these ads in my neck of the woods yet.
but if & when i do, i will feel so in the know.

I love this book too and was one of the first more serious books I read for pleasure!

So strange, I never knew much about these dolls either. But I remember seeing one of my fav photographers talk about them awhile back.

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.

"If Christ be anything, He must be everything."
-C.H. Spurgeon
