At the Zoo

I was totally going to do a post today about some really cool pics I recently took at the zoo, but of course, John and Sherry over at Young House Love totally beat me to the idea. You should check out their post on some great pics they recently took at the state fair.

...but not before you check out these cool pics I snapped at the zoo last weekend. And if you want a high-res file of any of these, just e-mail me and I'll gladly send it to you!

Here's a street access cover to the water line - as everyone in my family's first and last name starts with the letter W, I thought it perfect for framing.


I took this picture because I loved the contrast of the green and the purple and didn't even notice the heart shadow until after I downloaded it to my computer.


Just a really cool flower...


And my personal favorite, that I just had to include....



  1. That one with the heart is amazing! Love the colors :)

  2. So...can you teach photo 101 over the computer? Please! You are have such a way of capturing color and life and they are ALL framers :)

  3. We're going to the Zoo, tomorrow in Ashboro, NC

  4. Why are all the gals I blog with, amazing photographers!
    That is wonderful Lady!!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
