The Moon Flower Blooms!


Last night I had my first Moon Flower Bloom of the year, they bloom as the sun sets and die in the morning. The scent is amazing!

Christmas in June!


Last year my Mom gave me the supplies to turn giant gold Christmas balls into Giant Red Sparkly Christmas Balls.


I hung them up to a line using wire.


Then covered them in spray paint so they looked like cherries.


Next I'd spray a small area and throw glitter on it!


This is the finished product. I plan on hanging them outside in the winter with white Christmas lights near by to light up the sparkle!

On her way to New York Fashion Week...


My good friend Michelle Pajak-Reynolds is preparing for her next show at New York Fashion Week as the Headline Designer! And she needs your support to make this show a success. 

Go to her KickStarter page and watch her video! You could be a part of her success! Everyone who pledges will be listed in her Look Book of the Runway Collection. There are many gifts you can receive for pledging money and becoming a backer. If you can't pledge make sure to pass this on to your friends. It's wonderful to watch a friends dreams come true!

Today I became one of her backers (aka I donated money to help her meet her goal!)

Image above is from a previous fashion show Michelle's jewelry was in at Plitzs New York City Fashion Week, Warwick Hotel, New York, NY in February of 2012.

Baby Deer, Daisies and Bonfire!


This week I've seen this little baby deer sleeping in the woods. I took a quick couple of pictures and left him alone. 




I have about a million daisies growing in my front yard! They grow like weeds and I love it!





On Friday night we had a bonfire and made s'mores, so much fun!

The Butterfly Conservatory


While in Niagara Falls a couple of weekends ago Joe and I went to the Butterfly Conservatory and it was magical. I'll let the butterflies speak for themselves! These are the photos I took!

Niagara Falls


Two weekends ago Joe and I went to Niagara Falls, we stayed on the Canadian side and this is a view of the American Falls.


And a close up, I love all the giant boulders! To the right is a deck that people are walking on by the falls. That has to be rebuilt every year because the winter destroys it beyond repair. 


Here is a view of the Canadian Fall, you can see the Maid of the Mist in the middle. Joe and I watched that ship for a while and it seemed like if you were on it all you would see is a wall of white!


This is a picture of the side of the Canadian Falls. People can take an elevator down to see the side of the falls which we did!


It was a hot day and there was an incredible amount of mist.


The mist made rainbows, you can see one in the picture above.


I loved this view of the very edge of the falls. They said every year the falls move back 6 inches from erosion.


On closer inspection you can see through the water as it goes over the edge!


We took the elevator down and saw the side of the falls. It was beautiful!


While trying to take pictures we'd get hit hard with a wall of mist.


Occasionally I could keep my eyes open!

Look up!


And enjoy the sun coming through the leaves, like a green stained glass window! Breathe in the air and feel it fill you with energy. I like to imagine the breeze has come from some place I've traveled and made it all this way to me. Enjoy your weekend!
