Before Wishes

Soon, this little yellow dandelion will become a fluffy ball of seeds just waiting to be blown away.


Will you be making dandelion wishes? I always do. Here's hoping they all come true. ♥

Stopping To Smell The Flowers

I've been working morning, noon, and night in preparation for the National Stationery Show next month. I'm very excited, but since there's so much to do it would be all too easy to overwork myself. I don't want to get to the show totally worn down and sick, so I've been making sure to stop and (quite literally) smell the flowers pretty regularly. So, more flower photos to share today.

Tell me, have you been stopping to enjoy the springtime? It's so refreshing.

Yellow Flowers On A Wall

Yeah, it's another flower picture. I just can help myself! It's springtime, so it's to be expected. (Right?)

I took this one on one of the walks we took over the weekend. 

I made some edits using a new online photo editor called PicMonkey. I usually use Photoshop, but I like that PicMonkey is online so you can use it from any computer. It also has some really nice effects. If you're looking for a quick way to edit pictures (a replacement for picnik, perhaps) you might want to give it a test run. It's free and you don't even need to register. Have fun!

You're Turning Violet

It was a gorgeous weekend, so we went for a few walks around the neighborhood. I've been noticing violets blooming for at least a week now, and every single time I see them I think of that scene from Willy Wonka. You know the one.

The one where Violet Beauregarde turns into a blueberry and her father says "violet, you're turning violet, Violet!"

Seriously, I think it every. single. time. I see a patch of violets (even the white ones!). And every time, it makes me laugh.

Spring Is Happening Right Outside

I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR! (Caps completely necessary.)

It's just so unbelievably gorgeous out. Crisp air, flowering trees, grass that's turning green. Everything's just coming alive, and I find it quite exhilarating. I'm so busy preparing for the National Stationery Show next month that I'm not spending as much time outdoors as I'd like, but I totally appreciate each and every second I'm out there. I savor my walks to the train and bus. I can't stop myself from smiling when the sunlight warms my cheeks. 

Really you guys, it's sort of amazing (every single day). I hope you're enjoying it as much as I am.

There was also cake. And a few friends. And a lot of dancing!

I love celebrating wonderful things.

Shadow Portraits

When I got home from work yesterday, the sunlight was streaming through the window just so. My shadow caught my eye, and I snapped a few photos.


A silly little experiment in shadow portraits.

First Anniversary

Monday was our 1st anniversary!

One year later, and being married is just as excellent. So many people told us that it would just be the same (especially since we dated for so long and lived together for a few years), but it isn't the same. It's so much better! I don't know why, it just is. 

We'll be celebrating our anniversary with friends this weekend. I'm sure we'll take pictures, so stay tuned.
