I am pondering balloons tonight.

When I was a little girl my mother would decorate the ceiling with helium-filled balloons for the occasional party. I enjoyed having to push the hanging balloon ribbons aside while walking through the room.

I recently regained access to all my digital photos, dating back to 2001. I have just started to look through them. These were both taken within a week of their respective births – the first in January 2001, the second in June 2003.

The brand-new Tallulah, January 2001

The brand-new Matilda, June 2003

I love seeing the beginnings of their distinctive features on their wee baby pictures.

Happy June

This is the color palette in my Spring dreams.

June is a favorite month, second only to October. What new surprises lurk in the next weeks?
