Nothing particularly cute about a button...

one more memoir inspired by the fuzzy baby luna. looking at her pics and sighing over how cute she is, i thought about the expression "cute as a button." i've always thought that one was odd. i mean, if i were going to pick something to serve as a representation for extreme cuteness, "button" would NOT be the first thing to pop into my head. but maybe that's just me...
