hello little guy

We’ve been getting our mint for our watermelon coolers from our friend’s backyard a few blocks away in recent weeks (though last Sunday’s Flea was probably the last week – the season is changing). It’s really fresh, grown without pesticides and has the most aromatic, minty scent ever. There was a little stowaway in last week’s batch, however – the tiniest little snail you’ve ever seen. Quite cute and inquisitive, the little guy moved rather fast (for a snail) and craned his neck and antennae every which way exploring the little bowl we placed him in. The girls were tickled by him and found him quite fascinating. Mia wanted to keep him for a pet, but we convinced her that he would probably be most happy outside.

    I honestly think you should have a gallery solely exhibiting your gorgeous photography. You have such an amazing eye– every detail captured flawlessly.
    (love the last pic of your girls with the cute, tiny snail!)

    Ditto on your photography. Someday soon when you have time you can start a gallery. Or a book. Etc.
