Double Duty

Finally making some time for … me.   It feels so good to be working on some photos.

KK Pop Edition

Linking up, above, with KK’s Texture Tuesday ~ the POP edition ~ with the help of KK2 ( one of my all time favorites!), beached, and robins egg.  I’m also catching up on my 52×52.  Ugg … backing up all the way to Week 5:  Fruit (how did I get so behind).   I was 99% sure, but since I don’t know anyone that eats a lemon like they do an orange, I figured I should double check.  Sure enough, it really is a fruit…

With a little help from some friends at the Zoo, here are Week 6: From a low angle; Week 7: Eyes; Week 8: a bad habit; and Week 9: Childhood memory.  Can you match up the photo with the week?zoopendous dayGive up?  … I’ll give you some hints.  Week 6:  They’re really tall and I am really short.  Week 7:  A beautiful gaze.  Week 8:  Sleeping on the job.  Week 9: What kid doesn’t like playing on the monkey bars 😉

Til next time,

Starting Part II

my51stbirthday

The weeks leading up to my birthday, I caught myself once or twice thinking “Oh No! I’ve reached the peak and am now heading down the other side…” The picture in my head that went along with that was not a pretty one.  I needed to come up with another picture …and fast.  On the eve of my birthday, it occurred to me . . . I’m not over the peak ~ I’m just starting the Part II  of a very good book . . . my book!

I celebrated the start of my Part II by a lot of nothing in particular.  For me that means my day was not planned, no to-do lists, not an agenda in sight; things just happened … or not.  It was perfect!

EasterBunny Collage

 

The day started with an impromptu visit with the Easter Bunny.  I definitely wasn’t prepared for this ~ except for the fact that my camera was in the car to document my cupcake outing ~ not only did I leave my Easter basket at home, but my warmer coat, hat, and gloves… and it started to snow!

Aren’t they just the cutest.  They all came prepared…including wearing those adorable hats <3!

deliciously pink

 

Back on track. . .   I heard of local establishment called The Lucky Cupcake Company and decided I was long over due for a visit.  It was the hardest decision I had to make all day.  In the end, my box included six scrumptious cupcakes:  Irish cream (for St. Patty’s day, of course), Bailey’s cheesecake, carrot cake, lemon cream, peanut butter cup, and the crowd favorite, the Car Bomb (“Chocolate Guinness cake filled with Jameson truffle, dipped in chocolate and top with Bailey’s buttercream”).  Oh so…DELICIOUS!

Part II could not have started any more perfectly!
