A few little make up items I picked up at the drugstore. Luv Wet n Wild lipsticks they go on really well and are matte. I will report back on colors and nail polishes soon.

Sunday Quote

"Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words." --- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

So here's a little song:

Pink Martini- Hang On Little Tomato

A poem:

Splendour in the Grass

What though the radiance
which was once so bright
Be now for ever taken from my sight, Though nothing can bring back the hour Of splendour in the grass,
of glory in the flower,
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind;
In the primal sympathy
Which having been must ever be;
In the soothing thoughts that spring
Out of human suffering;
In the faith that looks through death,
In years that bring the philosophic mind.

-- William Wordsworth

And an exquisite picture.

Staring out at the city of LA after our hike up to White City/Echo Mountain trail via Sam Merrill Trail Altadena. The payoff is very rewarding.

Taking a walk with the pups at Grand Avenue Park


Hello Old Friends,

Today is the first of the year and I'm starting my 2013 365 project, I will be taking a photo a day of the Mr & I (home, pups, food, etc) and posting it here. I'm going to try to get creative with it and hope to become a better photographer by this fun exercise.
In an effort to rekindle with my old blog, I will also try to go above the picture of the day and post some fun stuff, including my Sunday quotes.

Well friends I hope that 2012 treated you right and best wishes for 2013. With that said, I leave you with a few pictures of the highlights of 2012.
