  1. Just what I needed this morning. I would have given anything to stay in bed!

  2. I love these posts Marla. 🙂

  3. I LOVE the quote about being nice to everyone, not because they’re nice, but because YOU are. Fantastic! I’ve never heard that before. Great photos – all of them. My favorite is the b&w of the guy with the cowboy hat. It looks like an ad. Great job! 🙂

  4. Love the quotes with the photos—- and all the photos are phenomenal. Nice work – thanks for sharing.

    these are great, and if I had to choose my favourite (and it’s hard) I would pick the second last – age- so sweet

  9. Those photos are awesome – and WHO is the sexy conwboy? (don’t tell my husband I am asking, OK?).

  10. Good grief – I meant ‘cowboy’.
