I planted lots of these. I have high hopes to have fresh flowers in my kitchen all summer long. (I have those same high hopes every year and it never happens.)
Oh, how I love this girl!!
I'm headed up north tomorrow for Debbie's photography workshop in Ann Arbor. I am SO excited to meet Debbie, Steffie, Gail and Colleen, and it looks like there will be many other great ladies as well. Plus, a whole weekend of photography - oh my word!! Unfortunately, I signed up before we got Leila's soccer schedule and I will be missing four tournament games. :( Her team placed first in the last tournament, so I'm really sorry to miss her play. She has really made great improvements this spring and I know I'm going to miss some of her "sick" moves, as her coach calls them. I told Nolan he needs to text me with the play-by-play and video tape as much as he can, but I know there will be plenty more tournaments in my future that I'll be sure not to miss.
I'm also excited that I got a new toy to try out this weekend. I stopped by the camera store during my little shopping spree last weekend and the Canon reps just happened to be there. Oh boy, am I in trouble when the Canon reps are there!! I got myself a pretty red ring and let's just say I won't be quitting my day job anytime soon with this super-expensive hobby. I'm going to take it out for a little test drive this weekend to make sure I like it, but so far, so good. The pink flower in this post is SOOC (straight out of camera) and the other pictures are pretty darn close. I am really looking forward to learning tons from the Pixel Fairy Princess herself and the other ladies this weekend! I hope you all have fun weekend plans!
