 It was such a lovely weekend with my husband :) We went to a tea room, an art gallery, old used book store, and a museum downtown. It was just what both of us needed :) I found a gallery that seemed very accepting and caring. I can't wait to join them! :) And I love their name "The Art Guild" It makes me feel like it is medieval times when you belonged to a guild of your craft :) I will not be filling out an application for them for about a year though due to school :P

I'll be ready with all sorts of work to present them when I am done with school though ;)

This picture I posted is from the tea room that Zach and I went to. It seems to sum up the day that we had together. Light, bright, and lovely :)

I've been working feverishly on all sorts of photography things today, and I can't wait to unveil them :D

Oh, and I have been working on some clay creatures that you will meet very soon! In fact, I need to go and work on them some more. I hope that you have a lovely week!

Oh! also I have this song stuck in my head. It's from the first Doris Day movie that I ever saw :) 

 
 
I'm still working on cleaning up my computer (including photos) and so once I am finished with that, I will start posting some pictures to my blog :)

I have some very exciting news to tell you all, but unfortunately I can't tell you too much quite yet :P But I can tell you that it is related to my last few posts :) I will be able to tell you more here soon! I promise :)

Anyways, a lot has happened since I last wrote here. My parents came down to visit Zach and I a few weekends ago :) It was really nice. We took them downtown, and went to some museums and my favorite art gallery. I wanted to take them to the gardens, but unfortunately they were not open :( Our good friends came down to visit during the week, and so I had a good time perusing used bookstores, the mall, and some random little shops :) I bought a TON of books over the past few weeks. So far I am enjoying all of them, and wish that I could read all of them at the same time :) Alas, I can not :P so I'm taking them one by one, slowly making the pile of new used books diminish :P lolol.

Due to the exciting news that I received earlier this week, Zach and I decided to go out on a date :D It was a lot of fun. We went and saw the new "Karate Kid" movie. It was AWESOME! People in our theater were so into the movie :D Everyone was applauding and such :) It was great. Zach and I decided that is one that we will end up owning and watching again and again :)

That's about it now for the update :P More went on in my week, but I can't remember it right now :P hee hee.

 
 
Ok, so I have submitted to two magazines so far, and have only received a "sorry, but we can't use your images at this time" from one magazine, so there is still hope! :) I still have a few more to submit to. I have to say, it is super difficult to try to put yourself out there. These photographs are a part of me, and sending them to people I don't know for a chance for them to be used or rejected...well, it's not easy :P

I didn't realize it but, I've been a tad stressed :P and so yesterday Zach forbid me from any housework. "But what am I supposed to do?!?!" I asked him, "I don't know". Was his reply :P And so, it led to a day of finishing thank you cards, photographing hummingbirds, gardening, and some painting :) Oh, a random fact about me, I like to listen to books on tape as I paint. Currently I am listening to "The Hobbit" :)

I'm thinking of posting a picture with each blog post. I feel like I post a lot of pictures though, but it may make the blog look prettier :) Hee hee hee. What do you think?

I still feel pretty wound up :P So I think today I'm going to paint some more, work on pictures, and cuddle up with a book a little later :) Orrrrr a book recording :P hee hee hee!

Well, off I go to take care of a few chores and then some relaxing later :)
