Just a little eye candy from a walk down main street.

Special Auntie

When I saw this mannequin all dressed up, beckoning customers into a small boutique, I stopped dead in my tracks. A serious, dead stop.Not only did she make me all happy inside just by looking at her,
she reminded me of someone.
Someone who loved me unconditionally.
Someone who thought I was something special.
Someone who giggled at the silly pranks I played
(after first acting like she was upset with me)
Someone who had an infectious laugh.
Someone who taught everyone around her right from wrong.
Someone who would send beautiful works of hand-drawn art on postcards to me in the hospital
every time I had a baby.
Someone who didn't judge others.
Someone who encouraged you to be yourself.

It didn't take long to recall who that happy, pretty lady reminded me of.
I miss her very much, but if I listen closely I can still hear her infectious giggle.

I hope that I am a special aunt to my nieces and nephews
as I remember my Aunt Kate was to me.

Guess who's ONE?

Yesterday we celebrated our little Presley's first birthday.
So much love surrounds that sweet little baby girl.
So much love fills my heart when I think of her.

Happy Birthday to my precious little granddaughter.

Back at it again!

I've been in Wonderland, behind the looking glass.................okay, really, I've been busy with my photography and have been gardening like crazy! Front yard is looking good!
I've neglected my poor little blog for so long that I wonder if anyone still drops by?
Here are some shots from last Saturday's Scott Kelby 2nd Annual Worldwide Photowalk.
There were over 30,000 photographers shooting around the globe on July 18th.
We worked in our own little corner in St. Charles on Main street.
The group was great. Nice, nice people! I made many new friends and had fun with those I already knew. The nicest part for me was having my sister along.

Love these Blog It Boards from Jodi at MCP.
I'll be back......the little Miss Presley turns one tomorrow!
