Project 365: Days 37 thru 43

Sept. 19, 2010: Day 37
I did a photo shoot with the Gaulden Family this afternoon. Jackie, the mother, and I know each other from our days together at BHS. She has a beautiful family and it was a true pleasure to chase around her precious girl.

Sept. 20, 2010: Day 38
My first Dahlia is in bloom! This makes me a very happy Gardener. :) Everyone should go visit the fine folks New Leaf Garden Market in Pisgah Forest. They have great plants and give wonderful gardening tips.

Sept. 21, 2010: Day 39
My last Cone Flower of the season is dying out. I have mixed emotions about this. On one hand I am sad because I love Coneflowers. On the other hand I am happy because it means that Fall is HERE!!!!

Sept. 22, 2010: Day 40
Fall is my favorite season for so many reasons. The leaves are beautiful. I love to see pumpkins on porches and funny scarecrows scattered in lawns and gardens. The weather is cooler and I get to bundle in my comfy sweaters and hoodies. I can go for a walk in the afternoon and sweat because I push myself instead of sweating because it's 100 degrees. Fall, I welcome you with open arms!

Sept. 23, 2010: Day 41

Fall thanked me for the warm welcome by giving me a cold. *Cough. Sniffle. AAAACCCHHHHOOO!*

Sept. 24, 2010: Day 42
I stayed home from work today because I was feeling so icky. Roxy didn't get the memo that "Mom" was sick, she thought it was supposed to be a play day for us. I mustered enough energy to throw the frisbee with her for about 20 minutes and she was overjoyed.

Sept. 25, 2010: Day 43
A friend of mine bakes incredible cakes. I have enjoyed seeing photos of her many cakes and was honored when she asked me to photograph this one. Beautiful job girl!

Project 365: Days 30 thru 36

Sept. 12, 2010: Day 30
Western Regional Special Olympics Bocce Tournament - all Transylvania County athletes placed and are now eligible to play in the State tournament. Way to go Thrashers! They played hard and they played good despite the miserable, rainy conditions.

Sept. 13, 2010:Day 31
The kido's and I made Apple Crisp (Or "apple crispy" as they called it) at the preschool today. I was impressed with how well they were able to cut up the apples with butter knives and the results of their hard work was wonderfully, sweet, ooey-goodness. I love fall.

Sept. 14, 2010: Day 32
This is one of the reasons I love my husband, he was born to be a "Dad". Since we don't have children of our own, we often "borrow" our friends children and spoil them. Buck recently got a new tractor which I have nicknamed "Rusty, Trusty, Ole Tractor" after one of my favorite children's books. He was so excited to take this little one on the first ride.

Sept. 15, 2010: Day 33
Baby feet are irresistible.

Sept. 16, 2010: Day 34
Tiny pink Converse are even more irresistible.

Sept. 17, 2010: Day 35
My new zebra stripe Converse, I just couldn't resist them.

Sept. 18, 2010: Day 36
I have the best sister. She is super supportive and is happy to admit she is my #1 fan. I went to visit her today and she surprised me with this super cute key chain which I immediately attached to my camera bag. Thanks Jo! I love you!!!! (oh, and sorry I was afraid to push the button. I really did think it was a trick and that it was going to shock me. Who would have guessed that it makes a shutter sound and flashes. CUTE!)

Project 365: Days 23 thru 29

Sept. 5, 2010: Day 23
We (Ron, Darcie, Helen, Cheyanne, Sarah and I) spent the day wandering around downtown Asheville. It was a great chance to spend some time with some wonderful friends. The highlight of the day was when Darcie and I were finally able to present Helen with the book we made for her while I was visiting Darcie last spring. Did I mention that Helen, Darcie and I have known each other since Kindergarten?!?!

Sept. 6, 2010: Day 24
I captured this sweet moment while I was eating lunch in my favorite not-so-secret-spot in the forest today. I love living and working so close to the forest.

Sept. 7, 2010: Day 25
Peaceful moments like this don't happen very often in my house. So, when they do, I make sure to capture them with my camera.

Sept. 8, 2010: Day 26
I have a deep love for all things wild, including wildflowers.

Sept. 9, 2010: Day 27
It was a beautiful evening for a ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Sept. 10, 2010: Day 28
I planted my first butterfly garden this year. Tonight, I saw my first butterfly enjoying my flowers.

Sept. 11, 2010: Day 29
Sisterly love.

Project 365: Days 17 thru 22

August 30, 2010: Day 17
Today the kids and I found an injured butterfly on the playground. There wasn't much we could do to help it so we carefully carried it to a tree and set it in a nice safe place with lots of leaves for shelter and food.

August 31, 2010: Day 18
My father-in-law got creative in his efforts to provide Roxy with adequate amounts of exercise.

September 1, 2010: Day 19
I didn't actually take this photo today BUT I did just "rediscover" it today. Duchess is super attached to this toy. If anything ever happens to the "Monster", the world will surely stop turning.

September 2, 2010: Day 20
My friends, Ron and Darcie, have arrived! They are visiting from Cape Cod, MA. I can't wait to show them what my life in the "country" is like. I welcomed them with a campfire and S'mores on their first night in town.

Sept. 3, 2010: Day 21
The Brilhante's and I explored Pisgah National Forest together today. :)

Sept. 4, 2010: Day 22
Buck, Darcie, Ron and I enjoyed an afternoon at the Apple Festival in Hendersonville, NC today. Buck's favorite part? The grilled corn we purhcased from "Mother Shuckers". YUM!
