And then I snagged one of Bitty’s because they are also uber long…Feb8e

Here’s a couple more pics I snapped during the movie –


Chocolate Labs make the bestest pillows!


For today’s macro picture I couldn’t choose between my two favorites.




There was a Ladybug on the windowsill and I was able to snap a picture of her wings as she used them to flip from her back to her feet.


Glamor Girl’s rose is looking a bit rough around the edges, but I loved the texture on the petals.
