ahhh... friday

I finally got to download some photos from my iphone and I really like this one that I took at the zoo last weekend. The trees there are gorgeous! Little C is in the foreground. 



I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's. Ours was rather calm and routine - classroom V-day parties, drive home with the kids, homework time, soccer practice, dinner, bedtime. My husband and I aren't really into Valentine's so it isn't a big to-do around here. In fact, he knows never to give my anything for V-day. I prefer what he does, which is to give me "just because" flowers and my favorite chocolate covered almonds throughout the year. :)

Today, I'm loving that it's finally Friday and I'm dedicated to tidying up around here. For those of you that have asked, more trees are coming! In the meantime, I wanted to check in and post my Friday links which I skipped last week.

Friday Tidbits
- Pikaland: A relatively new blog that features many talented illustrators.
- Boohou: I just love this project that Arounna posted! So adorable.
- This is more of a product recommendation. I got this tripod from a friend that knows me too well and I just LOVE it. I use it all the time. Super handy and strong enough to hold my Canon Rebel.

Have a great weekend!

  4. Thanks for the shoutout Patricia! I wanted to reply to your message, but it kept bouncing when I sent it to your email -- perhaps you can check to see if there's any weird going ons with your email accounts?

  5. It's so funny you were at the zoo last weekend. I was there 2 weekends ago. I frequently wonder when I am at interesting places, if there are any of my bloggers there. I got crazy pictures of the animals. Can't wait to see the rest of your pictures
