Baby Face

"All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother."
-Abraham Lincoln

In the past few weeks, a sharp pain has developed deep within my bosom. I am experiencing a physical yearning for my mommy. My mom is my best friend in the entire world. I hate being apart from the petri dish who fostered my growth for nine whole months! 9.5 to be exact. And let's be honest, by that time, I'd become officially oversized.

I cannot count the number of times that I've called and awoken her during the night. Also, she allows me to talk about myself 99.9% of the conversation's duration. She has taught me true, selfless love. I am so blessed for her example. I cannot for her to hold me tight inside her arms again. I love you mommy!

Let's Picnik!

For months now, I have sat back and watched as my fellow Facebook friends posted enticing pictures embellished with text, stickers, and effects. Numerous photo albums were published underneath the title, "Picnik." My first thought was, "what is picnik??!" After performing one simple google search, I found exactly what I was looking for.

And now..... I have finally joined the photo shopping ranks of Picnik. The site provides free, easy to use editing tools to crop, rotate, and adjust exposure. My favorite photo options are rounded edges. I performed this action on every one of my edited photographs! I love the 1960s look.

Taken above the expansive landscape of Athens, this was my favorite altered image. The picture truly captures a captivating, candid moment. I have never seen such an enormous city! I love the lighting too!

I am completely and utterly obsessed with Post Secret. It is an ongoing mail art project that encourages people to personalize postcards in order to reveal an anonymous secret to the online community. I wish that I would have started this! By reading them, I guarantee that you will feel 100x more normal. Reading everyday people's most private secrets is pretty much therapeutic.

I couldn't believe when I saw this one...

Serves he/she right!
