breakfast of champions

Yep. Still stuck on photographing macarons and lattes.

How do you like my new props?
We were at the Astoria Sunday market this past weekend 
and purchased some old Japanese books. 
Tres cool.

I hope your week is treating you well!

Champion the right to be yourself; 
dare to be different and to set your own pattern;
live your own life 
and follow your own star.

trials and passions

How fair is a garden 
amid the trials and passions of existence. 
~ Benjamin Disraeli

The first day of summer is tomorrow...
you know what that means, right?
Shorter days ahead and moving closer to autumn!
woot and squee!!!

Happy weekend!! I hope it's filled with few trials,
and much delight! xo

Remember that everyone you meet is afraid of something, 

loves something 

and has lost something.

A smörgåsbord of shots this morning.
A little bit of knitting.

A little bit of the garden.

I'm an autumn/winter girl to be sure. But June holds a special place of love. 
Between spiders, ladybugs and dragonflies - I'm very content.

Truth is a deep kindness that teaches us to be content in our everyday life 
and share with the people the same happiness.
~ Kahlil Gibran

And for a change of pace, I bring you non-knitting today.

We had a little birthday celebration for my sisters this weekend,
and these yummy Lemon Brownies were party-pleasers to be sure!!

Is there a better way to say, "hello" to Monday than with bright lemon yellow?
I think not.

Make it a good one!!

Spend the afternoon. You can't take it with you.
