You Capture: Joy


When I think about what brings me joy, I can name quite a few things. Animals bring me lots of joy. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, if I could figure out how to legally do it, you'd see a giraffe in my backyard. But, I don't have a giraffe; I have dogs, and for the most part, they bring me so much joy. So, here are my girls:


(Whoa. Somebody needs a haircut.)

But my nephew IS my joy. Every Sunday is ours, and I can't wait for Sundays to get here.
I love that he's trying to do things like brush his hair.

And I could play with him and read to him all day everyday.

But my favorite time is cuddle time. I know there will be a time when he's too big to cuddle, so I cherish every second of it.

And those are my joys. :o) If you would like to play, too. Go here!

You are an awesome aunt to set aside one day every week to spend with him. He will remember these special times with you! Love the puppy pictures too.

Your dogs are so cute!!! Love the noses- barely able to keep themselves from snotting up your lens.

About Me

My photo
I'm a walking contradiction. While I love to draw, paint and read, I also love all things gadgets, science and even science fiction (I know). My animals (two dogs and two birds) are my heart, and if I could figure out how to legally own a giraffe, I would. That all said, I have my BS in Mathematics. :o)
