My Favorite Graffiti

Every time I see this bit of vandalized property, my heart smiles: It's along the road near my house...a road we frequently drive, walk, run, and bike. Someone painted it on one of those boxes used for monitoring light or electricity or who-knows-what. Here: It's not very big, you see. It's at the base of... Continue Reading →

What SHE Wore Wednesday

Sometimes, on Wednesdays, I'll find someone who is dressed cute...and I won't be able to prop my camera anywhere to take my selfies. And then I'm just like, "I MUST FEATURE THAT PERSON INSTEAD."

Fun on a Friday

Yesterday evening I had dinner-and-lovely-conversation at this lady's house. And we were joined by Kathryn and groomsman Dave and Colleen's man-to-be, Mark. It was one of those nights were everyone is just friends, you know? And we ate wholesome, lovely, homemade food and shared about our lives and Hazel-the-cat showcased her skill of jumping high...
