Finally Friday! It felt like this week went by at a snail’s pace.
You know what I’m thankful for this week? I’m thankful for the fact that the weatherman can, in fact, be wrong.
All week long they were predicting rain and clouds nearly every day for this week. I wasn’t happy about this to say the least, since I take all of my photographs in natural light, and therefore NEED THE SUN! Well, imagine my surprise and delight when we had sunny skies every day this week up until yesterday and today when I normally don’t do photoshoots anyway. You better believe I made the most of it and made this, this and this that I shared with you just recently.
Picture me doing a weird little victory dance on those mornings when I wake up to discover blue skies. — I know I’m weird.
So now you know that if I skip a few days of posting recipes, it means the weather has foiled my plans. I won’t complain, though because it IS spring now, and I have a feeling that many warm and vibrantly sunny days are on the horizon.
Well, I won’t complain until October, that is.
This week’s Friday Finds theme is salads. Big, colorful, gorgeous salads that look like you could take a bite right out of the screen.
For those of you new to Friday Finds, this is a feature I do every Friday that gives me a chance to catch up with you guys on things I’ve done the past week, and it also features recipes, DIYS, and just about anything else from different blogs that caught my eye the past week.
