Eye Candy

I came across Max Wanger's work a while ago, just thought it would be great to share it here with you. I truly think he is a fine artist with a keen eye. I love all his work, especially the way he uses negative space in some of his photos.

Let's check
it out! What not to love about all these beautiful captured moments? It's just simple lovely!

Enjoy and have a Happy Weekend! =)

Happy weekend!

i woke up this morning, looked out the window and it's cloudy; i stuck my head out of the door and it's cool...just the way i like it! i think fall must be around the corner... i am waiting, patiently. 

i think i should do a little more yard work since it's quite cool today... at least watering the plants, and may be a wee bit of planting... I have to get those seeds going as i am quite fond of having a winter garden at the backyard. hence, we are going to be busy for the next couple of weeks, scott agree to put a raised bed together for us. =) euan and i are going to have a wee garden... may be i should give our wee garden a name. how about "euan's wee garden"?  

what else are on my to-do list this weekend? knitting! i have been quite busy knitting up baby blankets... at the time being, i am working on a few of them as friends and cousin are going to be mummy soon! i love knitting for others. as i come to think of it, since i started knitting again about 4 years ago, i still haven't finish knitting anything for myself yet.... although i'd started working on a few projects they are still on the kntting needles. i never get to finished them as i always get distracted with projects i wanted to make for loved ones. knitting is therapeutic for me and rewarding at the same time. it's the best to see your loved ones enjoying your "labour of love". =)  so, i will be busy knitting for a loooong time! 

my cousin, eve modeling the goodies that i knitted to keep her warm during the winter in cold foggy London. =)

Have a lovely weekend!

It has been 2 weeks...

... since we got back from our adventures in Europe. To be honest, it has not been easy for me to settle back into our daily routine after 3 months worth of fun. I think my problem is I love Europe too much, Scotland to be exact.... I love everything about it, even its' gloomy rainy summer days that the locals hate. Unless one has experienced the flaming heat in Houston during the summer, you probably would never understand why I even like the rainy days in Scotland. I would rather be rained in then trapped in by the heat. I miss Scotland. I miss the rain, the wee whining roads in the country, the beach, the rolling hills, the highlands, the sheep and the highland cattle, the castles, the friendly people.... the list will just go on and on. That's how much I love Scotland. =)

There was sign of Fall on the day I left London, a week before I left Scotland. The leaves have started turning red and yellow... that's definitely the sign of Fall approaching. Fall has always been my favourite season. Hmmm.... the beautiful colour of Fall and the cool crisp air, it's simply lovely! But unfortunately, I haven't had a proper Fall since I moved to Houston three years ago. Here in subtropical Houston, Fall is almost non-existence. It only lasted for a couple of weeks, it comes and goes in the blink of an eye, and winter is normally here before there is even Fall foliage. Despite of the short autumn we are getting here, I am still very much looking forward to winter arriving soon!  I would rather deal with the cold days in winter than the long hot summer days here in Houston!

I blinked.... and he has already turned 2!

My wee boy has turned 2 today! Where has the time gone? It felt like yesterday I'd just gave birth to my wee baby boy... It brings me to tears seeing him growing up so fast right before my very eyes. It's bittersweet. And I am sure before I even notice, he will be ready for college! 

Dear son, 

Time flies, you'd grown up from a wee baby to a fine wee boy, and today is your second birthday. Mummy has been so lucky to be able to spent every moment of your life with you. It's a joy to see you learn and grow everyday. Without a doubt, being your mum is the best job I could ever ask for in my life! And you are truly my pride and joy! Thank you for bringing so much happiness and love into our life. As daddy always says, you are the best thing that ever happened to us! 

Happy Birthday to my Wee son! Daddy and mummy love you lots and lots! =)

Mummy and Daddy xoxo
