Day Trippin'

This is a picture I took outside my SIL's office when we were visiting him and our daughter in Colorado....his office sits atop the second floor of one of the oldest buildings in has been totally and lovingly renovated...leaving all the old charm and character of years past. Downstairs is a corner grill...that cooks a pretty mean lunch or dinner. This is actually the building next door on the ground floor that connects to the office and Corner Grill. I'm not sure what the business is...b/c I just took pictures while going up the outdoor stairway to SIL's business balcony. I remembered thinking how awesome it would be to be able to look out over this cute little shop everyday while working...I would probably sit on the balcony most days...and not get a lot of work done. Somehow I don't think the men in my SIL's office have the same affection for "cuteness & flowers" as I do...while my SIL was showing my hubby around the office ( I had already seen it on a previous trip) I snuck back outside and snapped these pictures...I just knew my new friends in Blogland would appreciate this for all the beauty and splendor it beholds...I'm afraid my daughter was a little surprised at my attention to picture see...I'm not the photographer in our home...she is a professional photographer and most of her growing up years...she was the one snapping pictures, I don't think I ever worried about taking pictures from the time she was about 10 or so...but b/c I have learned to love the beauty and splendor of all my new friends talents ...I wanted to be sure and capture something beautiful for all your eyes to see. You guys have inspired me to step out of my comfort zone...and totally immerse myself in the moment...taking pictures I have discovered makes me take the time to enjoy every moment and every little thing...there is beauty in all things...and NOW I'm starting to realize it more than I know why my daugther loves photography...I'm just going to have to wait with patience while I learn how to work through this technical medium....You guys may have created a MONSTER!! Enjoy...more pictures to come...

You Go Girl! Slowly, but surely we're gonna get you to act just as crazy as the rest of us serious bloggers! (I was grinning and winking as I typed that) I find that everywhere I look, I see a potential blog post :-)

Loved the photos. Just gorgeous!

Love these pictures. And I especially love that little crazy looking flower pot girl thingy on the right hand side of the 2nd picture. Did that make sense? Well it did to me...but that's probably not saying much. lol Anyway, again - love these pictures!

Hi, Teresa, now those are some pretty pics! I know what you mean...I'm now carrying my camera everywhere with me. It is a little silly to look at every opportunity as a blog-moment, but that's what it has come to.

Your flowers are so lovely! I found your site through my niece Kari's (Just Livin Large) the wedding picture...if you're getting loads of rain, how bout sending some towards South Carolina, we're now officially in a drought!!!I hate that phrase but one we'll have to live with now it seems!
