Three Things

1.  You can find me over at the Fashion Folio where Glorianna E-nterviewed me.  Talking about what's on my iPod, summer plans, and blogging.

2.  Also, I wanted to give a shout-out to the winner of that frockin' tote swap, Lauren, from the blog Busy Bee Lauren!  Don't worry, I parted ways with it when I shipped it off to Mara to style.  Thanks to all who voted!!

And Last.....

This morning Puppy woke me up around 5 AM.  As tired as I was, and as inconvenient for my sleep as it was, I got my toosh out of bed and carried Puppy to the front yard.  This too was inconvenient because I had to get dressed.  For a few minutes, I stared intently on Puppy as he did his business, unaware of my surroundings.  It's like I had blinders on, completely focusing on what needed to get done so I could go back to bed. As I was kneeling in the grass, I somehow managed to glance to the sky.  In a split second, my jaw dropped.  Literally dropped.  Like I've never seen anything so gorgeous.  The only thing I could think of was, "Wow."  I repeated my thought out loud.  "Wow..."  Like a little child.  Immediately, I ran into the house to grab my camera so I could capture the sun rising from the earth and reaching towards the heavens.  
So today, I thank Puppy for needing to tinkle at 5 AM.  I thank Hubby for putting fertilizer in the backyard so  I could have a chance to witness the sun rising in the east.  And I thank Him for the subtle yet majestic reminders of the beauty that is.  Sometimes life's inconveniences lead you to so much beauty, even when you least expect it.  So here's to looking up more.
