Happiness is a set of Pilot G Tec pens, the only pens I have consistently used for the last 12 years or so. Thanks to my mom for sending it all the way from home. (They cost twice as much here and they’re only sold in one specialty pen store in North Carolina!)

A wonderful afternoon spent celebrating my niece, Kendall’s second birthday. Junipero Serra was a beautiful park with a gorgeous view… of South San Francisco and the Airport.

Yes, we go to Half Price Books a lot. I especially like going through their clearance rack where I can get books for $2-3 a piece.

My husband rarely brings me flowers. He knows I love them but that I would rather save the money or spend it on something else. But occasionally, he likes to surprise me.

The background was just quickly edited because I really wanted the flowers to stand out.

I’ve been super excited waiting for the arrival of these Kola color filters, touted as “having a ROYGBIV in your pocket”. I came across them at this really cool website with whacky ideas, http://www.photojojo.com.

The only downside is they scratch pretty easily but the scratches don’t show in the photos anyhow. 

Takes looking through rose colored glasses to a whole a new level. Let’s color splash the world!

This is part one of my Dinosaur vs. The Red Gummy Bear Series.

Gummy Bear faints as Dinosaur is asking him where he could possibly find some food.

There is no mistaking a real book when one meets it. Is it like falling in love.
