#TBT--Jake's First Time in the Snow (2006)

This Throwback is from 2006.  Jake was almost 2 years old and we took him to play in the snow for the first time up in Idyllwild. The whole way there he said, "I love snow!"  As soon as he stepped into it and quickly fell, that love was over.  Cold and wet, he wanted to just go home.

Radiant Orchid

I'm a little late with this, it's old news now.  The Pantone Color of the Year is Radiant Orchid and I couldn't be more on board.  I love, Love, LOVE this color and am looking forward to what designers do with it.
I spent a little time on Pinterest this morning looking at images with the color.  I really like it in the hair department:

Photos That Bring on the Happy

As I was spending time on my computer last night looking for a particular set of photos, I came across some others that instantly make me smile and lift my mood.  I love that anytime I need a little boost, I can easily access photos on my IPhone or my computer and can be transported back to a memorable time or day.

Here are some that bring joy to me right now (and apparently dressing up or getting messy are my happy!):

If you can, take the time to find a picture or two that brings you some Happy!  :)

Shannon and I on our way to see "The Phantom of the Opera" for her birthday.  Original was Polaroid.  I think this is about 1994-ish.
