I am in love with Arizona and would go back there in a heartbeat. This photo was taken during my last trip out there (about 2 years ago) while in Saguaro National Forest, in Tuscon.

Well, I wonder just what makes a man keep pushin’ on
Why must I keep on singin’ this old highway song.
I’ve been from coast to coast a hundred times or more,
And I ain’t seen one place that I ain’t been before.

Today’s i {heart} feature is a collection of frogs and toads, in memorandum of my frog, Turtle, who passed away this week…

Sorry my New Arrival is a little late– I had a little bit of a traumatic afternoon yesterday. I came home and found my little pet frog dead. Of course this would happen the day after D leaves. I really couldn’t bring myself to touch him, much less sit in the apartment with a dead critter until I could work up enough nerve to remove him…so I ended up taking the whole tank, with the dead frog, all the way to my mom’s house so she could, ahem… take care of… it. Then I just chilled at mom’s house for a bit and watched Dr. Who (hello! Why did no one tell me what a great show that is??!!)

So, here’s my new arrival– I love how the petals in the center form a heart!

yeah, that’s right.  RUNNING SHOES.

I’ve been watching what I eat. I’ve been eating healthier.  And I still haven’t been able to lose weight.

There’s only one thing left to do…. exercise…(shudder)

For these first two weeks, we’re walking. I’m trying to break in the new shoes and make sure I won’t get blisters. This also will also prep me for running.
When D gets back from Georgia, we’re going to start running for one minute, and walking for 6. The next week, we’ll run for 2 and walk for 5 (or was that run for 2 and walk for 7…) and we’ll gradually (and slowly) build up to 5 minutes of straight running! (I’ve got such high goals, don’t i?)

*sigh* wish me luck guys…

Monet Inspired Water Lily

My whole life is mine, but whoever says so
will deprive me, for it is infinite.
The ripple of water, the shade of the sky
are mine; it is still the same, my life.

No desire opens me: I am full,
I never close myself with refusal-
in the rythm of my daily soul
I do not desire-I am moved;

by being moved I exert my empire,
making the dreams of night real:
into my body at the bottom of the water
I attract the beyonds of mirrors…

Rainer Maria Rilke

I would like to say that *I* discovered ndtphoto, but I think he discovered me! Boy, I got a pleasant surprise when I checked out who this new person was who had followed me on twitter. I clicked on his shop and noticed this print IMMEDIATELY:

Man's Best Friend from ndtphoto.esty.com
(this totally brought out my 6th grade self who wanted to be an archaeologist when she grew up!)

Ha! Look at that! Twitter worked!
We actually traded, and I got this print the other day and I am so in love with it! What a fun, fun, fun photo. The quality is excellent too. I can’t wait to get this bad boy up on my wall!!!!
Here are a few other great prints from his shop:

I’m really excited about the new prints I will be adding to my shop.  I absolutely LOVE the “vintage” look about them. This is the first in series of Vintage Prints that I have created.  This is something really different than what I usually do, and I would love any feedback you have about these prints.
