pretty valentine's roses for you...

i hope you have a fantastic day
filled with love and laughter!

i will be spending the day with my bestie who is here from Chicago,
bopping around town and country,
 and doing lots and lots of giggling.

mr. dan will make his "roasted roots" and grilled steak for our dinner tonight.

i can't think of a better way to spend my time than with these two fine folks.

love is in the air.

sweet lil lambs

so cute, right?

My friend Alice spotted these new born lambies on a nearby farm....right after being born 3 weeks ago....she of course pulled right over to see them kind of adventurous gal....

she also heard they would be moved to another farm very soon (where the grazing would be better)...
so on a very dark, cold, drizzly, muddy and poopy day.... yes, lots of poop.
we traipsed through the fields on this minny farm
and i photographed these sweeties.


(i dare you not to smile whilst viewing)

 are you smiling?

Farmer Franc and his friend Joaquin  (both from South Africa and with the most interesting accents)
 welcomed us to the mini farm and we are invited back at any time, to any of their farms!  yay.

hopefully it will start warming and greening up around here...
and for sure i will be seeking out these lil babes for more pics.
i can just picture them in a green field with spring daffodils blooming and sunlight streaming from behind...
can you picture it?

this has been a long winter...
i crave being outdoors more.
spring will be here before we know it.


p.s.  do you take yourself on field trips?
 yunno, outings to get you away from the house and the job and the computer...
a field trip to refresh your soul and inspire your heart....
like visiting a farm on a cold day, or taking a drive through the country side...or how about heading into the city?
a field trip to take you away from your regular old life...
a field trip to connect you with others...
a field trip to connect you with yourself....

take yourself on a field trip...

p.p.s. it turns out that photoshop is an amazing tool for removing poop from a photo...

dreaming of spring...

i hope these spring like images
brighten up your day!

are you dreaming of spring?
i am.

thanks for stopping by today!


p.s. after being without Photoshop on my new computer for many months now, i have repurchased and
i am having a blast getting to know it all over again....although i feel rusty...
i am reminded how much i truly
playing with my photos!

p.p.s.  i even created my own bokeh layers (the little light balls you see in the background) by taking photos of the sun going down behind the trees.

p.p.p.s.  i am off to meet up with a friend, who knows a farmer whose sheep has given birth to 3 little lamby' camera in hand, of course!  i am so excited.
