It is a truth universally acknowledged that a rainy day becomes much cheerier when one is in possession of a turquoise umbrella.



Summer's flyin'
I'm not dyin'
Merely tryin'
To keep from sighin'
And/or cryin'
Over the attention for which my blog is vyin'
I'm not lyin'



Summer break has been great so far, but I begin a Spanish 1002 class on Monday. After completion (Lord willin' and the creek don't rise), I will finally receive my Associates in Speech Communication. Wooh boy. On the downside, I don't have much to offer blogwise other than photos I've made over the past several months. Go blow your mind by looking at the photo above of the twin and I and another pair of identical twins. Cool much?

^ Postscript: The ending to my poem is not because I've searched the internet for another word that rhymes with "flyin'" that would fit and came up empty and so inserted a random word.

I've always wanted to end a poem with "tortellini."

And by always, I mean as of today.

I think Shakespeare would understand.

Cool much, indeed. I did a doubletake. Two thumbs up.

And your ending words to this post....LOL. I've missed your sense of humor! But it sounds like your summer has been amazing good fun with lots of yummy doughnuts and tortellini.

Okay, good, I'm not crazy ... I did have to stop and stare at the pic with two sets of identical twins, and wonder if I was seeing things. Total awesomeness!!

I've missed your blogging so much, Erin! CONGRATULATIONS on getting ready to graduate (*jumps up on the desk and hurls handfuls of sparkly confetti in the air*) with your Associate's!! That's so exciting and we're really proud of you!

And your pictures are simply gorgeous and inspiring!

Tortellini, my friend ... ;-)

That is an awesome photo. :D Twins and twins. My mind officially has been blown.

UGH. I miss you and your blog sooo much. Glad you posted. Gorgeous photos! The ones of the donuts really set my tummy grumbling. ;]

Tortellini. Yum.

Wow, I did not think I would get any comments due to my long absence. Y'all are sweet.

Donuts and tortellini for everyone!

What a cute post. I have never commented on your blog to my memory. But I have stalked you for awhile.

I just admire your sense of humor and your beautiful compositions of pictures.

I can't decide which photo I like best. I am loving the green window and the twins photo is very sweet.

Your poem is great, too.

Thanks for sharing.
