Have a wonderful week-end!
Found this cute little snail posted on Instagram a while back, and decided to make my own.
Of course this was a necessity! 😉
And when Brian showed me his elephant, I had to give it a try, too!
… I love you today… I will love you tomorrow.
…to all the lovebirds out there ♥
… on fire!
* A big thank you to Brian and his editing skills, for perfecting the edges of the heart. It was a bit sloppy, with matches gone wild in the original!
He wasn’t skilled enough to light my heart, though, the flames were added by me 😉
*edited to add the “before” version:
Doesn’t get any cuter than this! 😉
However rare true love may be, it is less so than true friendship.

For several mornings I would take Sara to school, and then come home and see the dew on the grass illuminated by the morning sun, thinking to myself that I should come back outside with the camera. Never did. Until I saw that Becky did exactly what I should have done all these times, and that finally gave the necessary kick in the pants. That very same morning, after dropping Sara off at school, I made sure my macro lens was on the camera, added the heart filter, and headed outside …. probably making the neighbors and anyone who drove by, wonder what the heck the crazy lady with the camera was doing in the wet grass!
Find #2 at the after-Christmas clearance sales. A snowman AND a heart! Can’t go wrong with that! 😉
Is it a coffee mug, or is it a lens? It’s a lens coffee mug!
One of my favorite Christmas gifts this year. It wasn’t a surprise, I knew I was getting it, but I loved it just the same.
This little camera charm was the reason I now have a charm bracelet, and of course the heart belongs right next to the camera 🙂
Seems that the crepe myrtle in front of my house took pity on me and turned a beautiful red and yellow.
We have several other crepe myrtles and one of them is still mostly green, the leaves on the other one are a dark color… like someone mixed a very dark green and a very dark red together… and the one in the back yard has almost no leaves left.
Needless to say, this crepe myrtle is my favorite.
This is also my contribution to Scott’s current assignment: Autumn. There’s still time to enter your fall pictures.
There’s not much fall color around here, but I’ll take what I can get.
Love it, love it, love it!
This is the card, that Sara got to hand out to her classmates yesterday. Sadly, they didn’t have a Valentine’s Party. I thought it was district wide, but then I found out from Amber that her daughter’s school is doing Valentine’s parties.
I e-mailed Sara’s teacher to ask why, and told her that Sara was really looking forward to exchanging valentines with her classmates. She wrote back, saying it was a decision made by the PTA and the principal, and that they had opted for an end of year party instead.
I’m sorry, but what is so special about an end of year party? The whole last week of school is pretty much a party… no one does anymore learning, the report cards are already printed, they have field day, and everyone is excited about summer break.
The next day, Sara’s teacher came up to me at the end of the school day to tell me that she talked to the room mom, and the students would be allowed to exchange cards during social studies time on February 13th. Yay! That’s all I wanted. I’m OK with not passing out candy, etc. but to not even let them exchange cards just didn’t seem right. I guess more parents complained, because just a few days later, another note was sent home (with ALL the students), saying that there would not be any Valentine’s parties, but the students would be allowed to exchange cards if they chose to. But, the kicker was that the PTA was asking the parents to help bake or donate cookies for all the teachers as some kind of Valentine’s appreciation thing (I forget the wording). What is wrong with that picture??? The kids are denied a party, but the teachers get one, cookies and all? Needless to say, I did not drop off any cookies. I would have gladly baked some for the students, though.
