my gosh, how time flies!

it's my blog's birthday today and i've teamed up with my new photographer friend, Adeline of Sweet Adeline Photography, to help me celebrate.  Adeline is simply amazing and completely gets my style.  this is our first collaboration and i'm looking forward to doing more with her.

for my birthday post, i wanted to do a something different from my gray wall background and found "it" while in paris.  pete and i toured the louvre over president's day weekend and spent a considerable amount of time looking at dutch still-life paintings of flowers and fruit.  i was inspired by the artwork and wanted to do something similar for the blog sans the hanging dead animals.  i also thought it'd be an interesting exercise to use similar flowers in a different palette.

what's surprising about this whole blogging thing is that i really love it (despite it being effing hard to create and publish original content).  at the end of almost every day, i look forward to seeing how many visitors i've received.  during the first few months i averaged 30 hits a day but now it's consistently reaching 150-200 hits a day.  it's so rewarding to see the growth in readership.  and when i can't post, i miss it.  and i miss my readers.  i love it when you come back.  encourages me to do better and more for you.

and thank you, Adeline, for these gorgeous images!

a hot mess of cuttings.  love this picture.
