“It’s wonderful to fall
Let’s love and risk it all
I’d rather love just a little too much.”
~Natasha Bedingfield, “Little Too Much”
After a fabulous, flurry-of-inspiration writing day that included two major scenes, several important character realizations, 3000+ words, and that euphoric high where you’re just SO IN LOVE with the magic of writing, I’m choosing to give my mind a rest by doing today’s post via photos. Somehow that seems fitting anyway, since I’m a total picture fanatic. So, my life as of late, as seen through the lens of a camera:
Apparently four inch heels don’t make a difference when you’re standing next to someone who’s much taller … but I love Sunday’s picture with Graham just the same, and I also love that I had the chance to tell him how much his lyric about jumping into the world inspires me every day on this publishing journey. His genuine interest and our discussion about it completely made my whole week.
Is there anything more adorable than baby clothes? So beyond thrilled for my friend Christina and her husband Tom on the arrival of their precious daughter — I seriously cannot wait to meet the little miss and help spoil her, starting with these outfits, a new book, and perhaps a toy, too. What can I say, there’s something about a newborn that makes me unable to resist buying presents :-)
What do you do when the sun finally makes an appearance after a spring that’s been far too cool and far too rainy? You grab your camera, grab your iPod, and set off on a long walk. My allergies are going to bother me for the rest of the day, but it was totally worth it to see these:
Then there’s the cherry tree that’s finally starting to bloom. Can’t wait for the buds to open so I can look out at a sea of pink while I write every morning.
My “waiting to be read” pile seems to be growing right along with the springtime blossoms. This makes me inordinately happy.
I briefly contemplated adding a picture of matzah to the post, since that’s pretty much what I’m living on this week, but somehow that didn’t seem quite so interesting. Do me a favor, everyone: go have a slice of bread, or a piece of pizza, or a bowl of pasta for me. Or cookies, cake, pretzels, ice cream … please? Ha.
What pictures are in your album this week?
