Cheese!

Hey everyone. Say cheese! Hey you, look over here! I love to take pictures. I find it relaxing and fun. Whether it is people or places or completely random stuff that just looks different and photographable. Next to my desk I have a picture of a llama. I took this picture probably 8 years ago at a zoo in Maryland. I just adore the exposure and the way the llama looks. Everyone always asks me why I have a picture of a llama by my desk?

HELLO, BEAUTIFUL WOMAN AND HANDSOME MEN! If you have followed all week and gone in order, you've visited some amazing shops and blogs along the way. If you haven't made all the stops, do so.
