For as long as I can remember I have been facinated with pens. I love to buy them, use them, and occasionally steal them.
I have a small yet fun collection of pens, to which I like to add a few each year.
I have pens from my childhood- pens that belonged to my father- pens that have been beautiful gifts- and pens I gifted myself.
The first time I went to Europe I was overwhelmed by the sheer beauty, style and character the pens had in staionary shops. Simple school pens to elegant fountain pends...I love and use them all.

Richard Serra

So...I love art. I love being around it, I love making it, I love experiencing it....

In May I was in NYC for my graduation and had the opportunity to see the Richard Serra out in the MOMA garden. It was beautiful...and a wonderful experience to share with my mom and husband.
My husband took this picture from the second floor at MOMA.

Favotire Meal

I could eat a burger and fries everyday. I take my burgers medium-rare...I dare say rare... but how I do like them juicy and pink. Pile on lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, ketchup, and mustard. I want my burger to have tasty, salty, crispy fries...season salt is wonderful...every now and then a good sweet potato fry is good too. I like to wash down my burger and fries with a beer...or a diet coke sometimes.

I adore burgers.

These are some of the best places to get a burger (in my opinion)...

I have a friend. His name is Sven. He guards my garden from the grasshoppers. Sven does not do a terribly good job...my vine leaves have bites. It's OK. I still really like Sven.
If I could have a family for Sven. I think this is what I would want them to look like.

I Love Golf

I never in a million years thought I would enjoy the game of golf. I never in a million years thought that I would want to play golf. 3 months ago I took my first real stroke of the club, and well, sunny days have not been the same since.

I love golf, and though I am only a novice and have much work to do, I really have fun with it. I try to play once a week, I try to go to the driving range once a week too.

This is something I hope to do for the rest of my life, with my good friends. I love golf!

I have always liked how sunflowers stand tall with their large faces looking at the sun. Their petals almost like a lions mane and big beefy green leaves. They are among my favorites.

I adore this picture because of the way the blue sky looks and fades from a rich to a light shade of this serene color. The yellow sunflower compared to the sky, is a beautiful palette.

When I Grow Up...

When I grow up I wanna be like Kate Spade. I just think she has the most incredible sence of style, it is simple and in simplicity there is elegnce. Today someone told me I have a great sence of style and a style of my own. This...this makes me happy, because I don't nessisarily want to look like everyone.
You often hear people say that fashion is a form of self expression...I couldn't agree more. Even when I wear something classic, I give it my own touch.
When I grow up...I want to be like Kate Spade.

David Gilmore c. 1972

I always joke around that I have a serious crush on David Gilmore...but not just any David Gilmore...not today's David Gilmore...but David Gilmore c. 1972

As you can see in this picture, he was delicious!
Then he opens his mouth and it sounds haunting, and then he plays the guitar and it makes you close your eyes and go to a different place.

I love you David Gilmore c. 1972

farmer's market

Every year the farmer's market comes for 11 weeks infront of our City Hall. It's the best part of my weekend. We wake up, get dressed, put Maggie on her leash, hop in my car and drive over there.
When we get there, we get the most incredible fresh squeezed OJ, a ham & cheese croissant...and if we stay loong enough to get hungry again, I'll get a pastelito.
It's a great way to run into neighbors and friends.
This picture was taken there with Don's new camera. I suggested the shot, and I am glad he took it.

Maggie Anne

It's been a while since I last posted anything on picture bliss. Sadly since the last time I posted...Henri found his way to doggy heaven. I know he is happy there eating a lot of ice cream, laying around and basking in the sun while napping on his back so his full belly could be exposed.
Since then, Maggie Anne is my only dog. I love my sweet girl. We've had her for over 6 years, and she makes us very happy. She smiles at you and has even been known to wink.
Here she is infront of the golof course our house sits on. She's a happy girl on a happy day.
