To my faithful blog readers,

I apologize for my absence. My camera was out of commission for awhile, hence the lack of photos.

However, it is now fixed and got a lot of action this weekend!

I attempted to post last night, but encountered some technical difficulties. :(

So please be patient with me...I am still very new to the blog world!

A Heart Full of Promise.

My sweet Mom mailed me this painting for Valentine's Day. Isn't it lovely? (No pun intended)

And when I arrived to work today, I was welcomed by two dozen gorgeous roses from my Daddy.
They absolutely made my day.

Whether you're happily married, freshly single, engaged, divorced, looking for love, or looking to avoid love, take advantage of this day. Embrace it. Love those around you- your coworkers, your family, your friends, the cashier at Publix, and the stranger who cut you off on the highway.
Love because you have experienced a love that far surpasses anything we can ever give.
You never know the difference that it might make.
And who knows, maybe you'll get a yummy cupcake or cookie in return. :)
Happy Valentine's Day y'all!

Bring On The Heat.

I love the winter. I really do. 

I love the cozy layers, hot coffee, fuzzy mittens, gooey s’mores…

You know what I love more? 

The Summer.

Sundresses, sweet tea, metallic sandals, cool ice cream, gingham tablecloths, cook-outs, coral nail polish…Stop me when you get bored...fireflies..

Ok, seriously. I love the summer. 
And one of my favorite aspects of summer is the blooming flowers.

My Mom's homegrown sunflowers!

We might not have changing leaves in Autumn, but one thing Florida does have is beautiful foliage in the Summertime. 

Mom's azaleas.

From the Panhandle to the Southernmost tip, the Sunshine State never disappoints this young girl eager to capture the beauty of a colorful petal. 
All of these images were taken in Summer 2010. Enjoy!

PS Is anyone else craving the sun's warmth???
