Tonight I'm very grateful for green...

Especially our adorable green pepper,
the first fruit of our little garden :)

Dashing & Debonair Continued

Here are some more photos from Hubs and my date night photo shoot.

Haha, yep, we have fun.

James did a good job photographing, no?

Trying out some ol' school editing.

James getting his "Cary Grant" on.

Am I right or am I right?

Hope you enjoyed our fun and completely random old school shoot.

I know WE DID!

P.S. Isn't my hair AWESOME?
I...might do it like this next time I go to some place fancy. It's fun.

You know those people who can see you better than others can?

The people who may even see you better than you see yourself?

The kind that have this superpower x-ray vision into your soul.

The kind that, when they look into your soul, say,

"Hey, you've got something great going there..."

and when you don't see what they see, say,

"Don't give up. All you need is a little more time,
a little more practice, a little more elbow grease.
You've got what it takes to make your dreams fly."

The kind of people who give you high-fives along the rocky road.

The kind that play victory music for you to dance to
when you do something right for once.

The kind that don't let effort go unnoticed.

That kind that catch your crumpled papers,
spread them out on the table before you
and with some sort of magical encouragement
turn their "no's" into "what if's".

Do you know the kind of people I'm talking about?

For the purpose of this post I'll call them

Those kind of people rock.

There are plenty of critics and pessimists in the world,

Plenty of "you can't's" and "don't try's".

We can credit our thick skin to those guys, sure,
but I don't care how thick your skin is - 
strong as armadillo armor or fragile as a dry leaf -
can't we all use a little thumbs up every once in a while?

That's why I say,
thank heavens for our Rosies.

My Cute Little Show-off

I'm sitting here on my couch doing freelance.

James is doing a workout video in front of me.

He keeps looking at me out of the corner of his eye
to see if I'm watching him...

...when I do he pushes harder
and seems to exaggerate his breathing.

I go back to working on freelance...

...with a knowing smile on my face.

My husband is a cute little show-off
and I love him.
