paint a picture

thursday morning dates at the art museum is my new favorite thing.
i dragged matt out of bed just for the occasion.
the weather was just as fine as can be and we sat outside the museum under shade trees watching the city hustle and bustle and work from across the river. 
inside, we held hands next to monets and hoppers and warhols.
we rushed through and moseyed slow and i was convinced we were going to get kicked out for matt getting too close to the art. 
it was a good morning.
p.s. it was an even better morning when i noticed the sweetest mention of my blog here from elsie at a beautiful mess
thank you so much, elsie! what a treat!
and a big thank you to all of you stopping by for the first time too.

  9. I'm so jealous! Also, you can take pictures at that art museum!? How did you manage to do that? The Art Center here wouldn't even let me bring my bag in! You look gorgeous! I adore that dress, the pattern is so lovely and dates to the art museum is always fun!

  11. I thought some of your adventure sites looked familiar! I live down the road from Dayton, and have enjoyed many of the same places. I spent a lovely day at the Dayton Art Institute last fall, and enjoyed your photos. I discovered your blog from Elsie's post yesterday, and am so glad that I did!

  13. Congrats on being mentioned on Elsie's site, love her (and that gorgeous wedding she had)! Going to the art museum (or anywhere else for that matter) with just Rocky is such a treat. Great idea for the two of you! I love the picture with the maroon artwork in the background, you made it look so pretty :)

  14. I'm a new follower and my gosh do I ever love your blog.

    Your photos are so lovely ... the brightness of them is so supreme, but yet crisp. I don't even know. They're lovely.

    You're lovely!

  20. Wow! I've been following you since your livejournal days when your blog had a different name. I feel like I'm celebrating right along with you...Just look at all those followers. Wow. I was just thinking that your photos are very different than they used to be...new camera? Photoshop effect? Something is different and it is LOVELY. And please don't lose any weight or feel like you have to, because you have never looked more radiant, more beautiful! Your body looks perfect, so well-suited to the style and clothes that you love. Everything seems to be fitting perfectly together for you...so happy for you. Blessings! xo-Cyndy
