I absolutely love your campfire outings. And that you're not ashamed of a couple powdered donuts every now and then! As always, I sit here just smitten with your pictures. You are definitely numero uno in my book when it comes to food photography. And just photography in general.

Love love LOVE your blog, Sheena. Really truly. It's my fave.

Your photos are amazing. Wow. And I was just thinking of this idea with Stanley thermoses filled with hot chocolate and potato soup (separate thermoses) and blankets and camp fire. I think we will need to do it. It looks like a fabulous night.

That might be one of my favorite shoe-shots, so pretty. And the dew on the leaves, nice!
Thank you for being my one, true friend to wish me happy birthday on Facebook, haha! I was like, "wow even the weirdest people I know get a few happy birthdays on facebook..." and then Justin came home and told me I didn't have my birthday public on my account. He made it public even though I told him not to b/c I didn't want it to say, "Tara updated her birthday... it's today... she's dying for birthday wishes." but it didn't... and I have a couple more friends. But I told Justin, "Now I know who my real friends are... Sheena." ha...jk. man I am long winded. But thanks. :) I will call you soon.
