Ready and waiting to perform...

I sewed the ribbons and elastic on to a new pair of pointe shoes for Cami today... They looked so pretty and fresh... I had to take a picture!

The sun illuminates the rain...

Norm and I enjoy a lovely dinner out and watch the rain and sun dance.

My sweetie pie is growing up...

Sometimes when I look at my girl I wonder... how is it possible that the years fly by so quickly? Earlier this week I took a couple of very OLD disposable cameras to Costco to get developed. It was a surprise to see photos from 3 years ago as well as some from nearly 10 years ago... I had to come to the realization that Cami is growing up just as quickly as Leila did! Sometimes I miss their little selves, but mainly I appreciate the smart, thoughtful, generous, beautiful women that they are.

The bloom glows...

The color of this flower was so unusual... At first glance I thought the sun was shining on it through glass or something, creating additional light... A closer look revealed yellow fading to white at the end of the petals, a glowing effect. Spectacular!

Fountain steps in the garden...

It was a lovely day to have lunch with Cami at the gardens. We stopped, took a break from the every day hustle, and enjoyed each other's company. I need to create more moments like this...

Lush foliage and abundant berries... 

Clark and I love taking new routes on our walks so that we can find new things to photograph! This plant was just loaded with berries... the light fell on them perfectly to enhance their nice plump shape. 

I got sucked into a demonstration at Costco today... The Vitamix machine! WOW! Pretty amazing! I've heard Harmony sing it's praises a few times but it never really connected for me what it was exactly... Now I understand! (No wonder you love it so much, Harmony!) AWESOME! It now has a place of honor on the counter (and I don't have much space for appliances)! Cami LOVES the smoothies I am making her as an after school snack and occasionally to take to school with her in the morning. I am excited to try making some of the delicious soup I tried at the store and I love that I can make my own little frozen yogurt...  :)

Leaves appear on the ancient oak...

I LOVE this tree! This is the same tree I've photographed before... the one behind Cami's dance studio. It's fascinating to watch it's progress through the seasons... I'm happy to photograph and capture it's transformations every so often! 

It's a special day today... It's my Dad's birthday! Happy 68th Birthday DAAADDDD!!! 68... it's impossible! He acts and looks more like someone 20 years younger! :) I feel very grateful to sit and think about my dad... to appreciate his thoughtfulness and generosity to all, his strong convictions and faith, his sense of humor, his love of: rat rods, cars, surf culture, good (and stupid) TV shows, and anything fun! I feel very lucky... I love you, Dad!

Uh oh....

I'm sure this was an accident!? I don't think so!! This little troublemaker loves to throw things in the pool. It's a good thing he's so cute!

Spring is in the air...

Today I went to my first CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) class. We discussed basic Emergency Preparedness... It was eye opening, especially the realities of how few resources are available to help if something widespread occurs such as an earthquake. The class is definitely putting me out of my comfort zone... That's good. I need to be prepared.

Cami brought something very important to my attention tonight before I went to bed. She wanted me to watch this video:

Watch it! It's important!

It was very eye opening and inspiring. Inspiring in a way that makes you want to make a difference as well... Cami has been putting signs up in support of this cause at school as well as telling people about it and asking them to write their senators/governors/congressmen to advise them of the need to do something about this travesty. We can not let this continue... We can not allow more children to be invisible... We can all make a difference!

I am very proud of Cami and her support of causes that are for the greater good. (She is also involved in a few clubs at school that: help the environment, discourage H8/Bullying, and Suicide Prevention Awareness.)

Seeds scatter
I watch them fall 
catch the breeze
and float off to parts unknown
a prisoner of the wind.

I'm glad my destiny is not controlled by a fickle wind... although sometimes it can feel that way! I guess it's what happens after you've been blown somewhere you didn't plan on going that's what matters... When you set down your roots, make the best of your surroundings, and grow.

Dim sum at home... 

This is our ghetto fabulous version of dim sum on pajama Sunday. I love it! I keep a variety of Trader Joe's offerings in the freezer for just this type of day. A day when you're too tired and lazy to leave the house, but you still want a lovely savory breakfast. It was the perfect beginning to a relaxing and wonderful day.

Heather and Todd made a detour on their trip to spend a few hours with us today. It was sooo nice to sit and visit! I love every minute we're able to spend with family. Each moment is treasured... I never take it for granted.

Blooms pop...

It reminds me of the "Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree," song. You can't help but be amazed by all the beautiful blossoms that one day just open all at once!
