The Answer My Friend is Blowing in the Wind

Today was just plain insane for me. I don't know what was in the wind, but drama just filled the air at the school I work at. Perhaps this is just the nature of high schoolers?? Attitudes reared their ugly heads and lurked around every corner and I was on the receiving end on several accounts. Oh well, I just have to laugh it off. Here's hoping for happier students tomorrow.

In lieu of all the malarkey, I leave you with this quick pic before announcing my giveaway winner. I took this photo at Valley Forge National Park last Friday. I really wanted to spend time in the park that day, snapping pretty photos of the scenery, but no such luck - the wind was out of control. It nearly knocked me over as I hopped out of our car to snap even this shot. My eyes quickly teared up as it smacked me in the face. Hello Mr. Wind (I thought), thanks for the lovely greeting.

  13. Oh Marisa,

    How do you get such colours to play in a seemingly monochromatic outfit. Your photos sometimes look like paintings to me.
