This Project 365 is special because it’s my mother’s birthday today: March 10th. I can’t say enough about what a wonder my mother is so I’ll say two things that really highlight it. One: She’s taught me the most important thing that someone can be is kind. Two: I have this blog because my mother has given me the power, and the confidence to be who I want to be, no matter what. Happy Birthday to the woman atop the pedestal, my mommy.
Onto the photos:
I thought he would never grow, just another grocery store novelty like a broken chia pet. This is my Valentine’s “I love you bean.” It’s growing so strong that we had to move it to a bigger pot. I won’t ever have to throw a tantrum like Kate over our love fern. Our love lima is all flourish.
You’ve probably seen enough of these. If I don’t officially have the title of cat lady, then I’ll just have to put a beret or a cowboy hat on him…maybe a silver toy gun in a sling.
All I’ve been thinking about lately is how well NCSU is doing in the ACC tournament and how much I want to see the Lorax. It was one of my favorite books when I was little (thus why I take water bottles from people when they’re going to trash them rather than recycle them). I thought this little budded and speckled flower was musing the Suess.
This is what I look like when I wake up; smeared eyeliner, wispy hair, cracked lips. I could star in a lifetime movie as the “troubled” character.
I can never get a clear cardinal picture. They always suspiciously hide amongst the branches just in the perfect spot to avoid my zoom. However, I got the petticoat of one on a run this week. (By this time you have to realize I run with my Nikon). These flowery trees only stay bloomed for about a week in North Carolina so I had to stand beneath them and let the petals dwindle in my hair while I could. Perfect for picnicking and afternoon naps.
WordPress is mapping us out and I love it. If I didn’t learn enough geography in seventh grade (believe me I didn’t), I will surely learn more by searching every country in google. Yesterday, I learned a heck of a lot about Grenada and in turn how many celebrities vacation there a year.
Step 1: Learn how to press the umbrella button.
Step 2: Smile for Grandma
Step 3: Hide and make Aunt Cassie peek below umbrella to get your actual smiling face.
Step 4: Lick the umbrella pole filled with finger germs and the residue of lost raindrops.
Step 5: Enjoy.
I hope you all spend the day outside picnicking, or making car seat umbrellas. If not a car seat umbrella, why not a sheet tent?
