All of your photos are lovely and I can't wait to see what you do with your sooc - great sun flare aswell. I see you're starting him young on gardening aswell - he'll be playing with his trucks in that compost soon.

I love how you take time every day to reflect on this. I really should too, but inbetween every thing I do every day, it just doesn't get done. But I strive to make at least 10 points each week.
Thank you for the inspiration.
