Weekly Photo Challenge: Sweet

This is my response to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Sweet.

Look at these adorable heart-shaped Junior Mints:

Aw! Such nice candy hearts…

Well, that took a turn…

Oh. My. Goodness.

My Word! You Do Tickle Me.

Today marks exactly seven years of marriage to The Chef.

When we started dating, we lived in different cities. All of our early conversations were through the Internet (where we “met”) or phone. 

My word! (Postcard circa 1910)

As such, I find the postcard couple (above) completely adorable. And, after seven years of wedded bliss, still entirely relatable.

Sorry for My Absence! Please Accept This Photo of Maeve Brennan as an Apology!

Hi all! My apologies for the lack of recent posts. We moved into a new apartment two weeks ago, and have been working overtime to settle into the new place. Everything should be back to normal on the blog very soon.

Until then, enjoy this photo of the late Irish writer Maeve Brennan.

Rainy Days and Blogathons

‘Tis raining in my neighborhood, and I only wish I owned such stylish wet-weather garb. Please accept this cutesy image as a peace-offering for my recent absence…

…but I’ve been (furiously) working on Reel Infatuation Blogathon content. Can you believe it’s almost here?

We hope you’ll join us this weekend for all of your character crush needs!

Blogging Update and a Self-portrait by Dora Carrington

If you’re wondering why my posting has been spotty and brief, it’s because my beloved laptop died a few weeks ago. A new one is on its way from Amazon. Things should be back to normal sometime next week. 

Please enjoy this early work by Dora Carrington, by way of apology.

Enjoy (I hope!).
