meanwhile, elsewhere

It is pretty incredible how a change in weather can readjust your mental state of mind in a matter of minutes. We’re back on Anna Maria Island and the palm trees and good company have made me happy.

Friday’s online finds: Inspirational, educational or just silly. Here is what I found this week…

When on vacation, I like to google local real estate and wonder why I don’t live here

And then I like to book the next holiday… a (hopefully) sub four hour tour of Chicago on footBank-of-America-Chicago-Marathon

Have a lovely weekend! I know I missed this week’s Wedding Wednesday but, Jodie and I plan to check out the Anna Maria Wedding Festival this weekend and I will report back next week!

two things i am not

I am always the first to say that I am not a photographer nor a photoshop guru. I am however, lucky to know a hand full of people who are amazing at these skills and have called on them in the past… but not this time!

Last spring we took a family vacation to Florida and I kept my camera close by hoping to catch some good beach shots. We spent a day in Miami Beach and found the water – David was so happy to run around and I snapped away.

I decided it was time to get some stuff on the walls in the kitchen and found this one.

before and after 5 minutes of photoshop

The photo didn’t need much work because the ocean is actually this blue in Miami but I photoshopped out a few distractions and ordered an 8×10.

I hung it on the wall in the kitchen and patted myself on the back for getting one more thing done this week. xomeg

Psst – The print was $4.00 and the frame is from Ikea. Thanks Jess for picking up the frames at half-price! I still owe you.
