This post might make you hate me. Especially you folks freezing your tushes off in other parts of the country and world.

Monday in our little corner of North Carolina? 70 degrees.

I know. Crazy.

When I saw this week’s You Capture assignment, it definitely wasn’t anywhere near warm outside. I envisioned shots of Small Fry and Marc snuggled up under a blanket on the couch. Or Marc building one of his famous fires. But then this beautiful day arrived, and you could not pry my camera from my face. Or the huge grin from Small Fry’s.

She ran around like a wild child, blew bubbles, decorated the driveway with chalk art, kicked balls with her pals. And let off some major pent-up-all-winter steam.

An awesome day!

And sometimes not so awesome:

But mostly awesome.

    • Of course! She was upset because the sidewalk had too many bumps and I wouldn’t let her draw in the middle of the street. Got over it almost immediately. It’s amazing how they can turn off the waterworks in a snap!
