dr. seuss

i've always been a huge fan of dr. seuss. actually, i don't really know anyone who isn't! today would have been theodore seuss geisel's 107th birthday! what i've always loved about dr. seuss's writing is that the words are not just for kids, but so inspiring for adults as well. books like "the butter battle book","horton hears a who" and "lorax" have some very powerful messages behind their imaginative illustrations and rhyming words. his books are so timeless and incredible and the world is definitely a better place thanks to dr. seuss. celebrate by sitting down and reading one of his books with those you love today!

"the more that you read, the more things you will know. the more that you learn, the more places you'll go” - dr. seuss

a few months ago, j, my best friend, and i went to the jewish bremen museum in atlanta to see their dr. seuss exhibit called "dr. seuss goes to war...and more!" the exhibit showed various editorial cartoons in which he advocated political and social change and urged america’s entry into wwII long before the bombings at pearl harbor. the exhibit was so captivating and i felt so lucky to have been able to see it. if the exhibit is still on tour, you should see if it's coming to a city near you!

this post is dedicated to my best friend in the world beth who has bought me most of the dr.seuss books in my growing collection and read "oh the places you'll go" during my wedding ceremony ♥ i can't wait to see you sunday!!! xo
