Best Friends

August 09, 2011
Our niece, Alyssa, really hoped that she and Kitty Paw would hit it off during her visit this past weekend. For the record, they did become friends…in a “I’ll jump beside you long enough for you to rub my back for about 10 seconds, then run off” sorta way (which is more attention than she normally gives people who are not her mommy and daddy). All weekend long Alyssa would attempt various tricks to get Kitty Paw’s attention. She sat as still as a seven year old can while watching TV…she left her bedroom door open in hopes that Kitty Paw might decide to...

The Day Planner

Last week, Kat asked those of us who are taking her Starting the Journey e-course to write about why we photograph in our photojournals. What an eye-opening experience. She later asked us to start pulling some of our favorite photos (from the past 2-3 months) into an inspiration folder.

Sweet Treat

The girls at the office and I have been talking about treating ourselves to a cupcake for weeks. Last Friday, to kick off our holiday weekend…we finally went to Gigi’s Cupcakes. It was absolutely worth the wait!Apparently, there is a proper way to eat a cupcake – who knew?! Gigi’s suggests that for maximum cupcake enjoyment, flip the cupcake over in your bowl and eat with a fork or spoon. I’m not sure it matters how you eat it, these cupcakes are like eating a little piece of heaven. We’ll definitely be going back!After eating my Peanut Butter Cup, I was...
