My dear friend Amanda sent this to me the other day.
I am in LOVE with it. 
I feel like it is meant for all of us. 
I hope that you too have decided to take this lucky year 2011 on as The Year Of The Fire Engine
I will be giving tips on how to feel like a fire engine all year long. 
I still remember my Daddy telling me, "Fritzi, you're a fire engine, you just don't know it".
I miss my Daddy so much.   
I want you all to know that I think you all are amazing and beautiful. 
You are all fire engine's to me. 

Now on to business,
Amanda dear has two amazing giveaways on her blog.
The giveaway for her print ends tomorrow so hurry up and put your name in her hat. 
The other one is for a print from her friend, Ellen's shop featuring Grace Kelly. 

My friend Micaela is having a virtual date on her blog, inspired by The Year Of The Fire Engine
She is accepting photo's of you all in your favorite shade of red lipstick to feature on her blog next week. 

Now this is the most important news of all, Alyssa is hosting a swap to fight off the winter time blues. 
The quickest way to feel like a Fire Engine is to send some love out into the world and make a new friend. 
Go here to sign up. 

love love,
Fritzi Marie
