Catching Up!

I know I haven't posted here since February; life has been kinda busy so I haven't been taking as many photographs as usual.

This summer I have been experimenting more with the camera my sister gave me for Christmas, and I fall in love with it a little more every time I use it!

Here are a few photos I've taken so far this summer:

The moon, captured by my 50x zoom on May 20, 2016

A single doe who frequents our neighborhood came visiting on June 18, 2016

I didn't take this one, obviously, but it's special because it's my first selfie with a miniature horse!
His name is Michelangelo and he lives on Hope's Promise Farm in Chester, NJ.
This photo just happened yesterday, Monday, July 25, 2016.

February Photo Challenge - Days #16 - #21

Day 16


Day 17


The Boonton Library had some very nice Valentine's decorations up this month...

Day 18
 

Day 19


...as did the Hawthorne Library as well with this cute "Blind Date with a Book" display. :)

Day 20


The Hawthorne Library also has a cute way of displaying the day's events on their bulletin board. :)

Day 21


And for today, a throwback that leaves me feeling a little sentimental. My old car, my red Chevy Cavalier...which is no longer a part of the family. I bought it new back in 2001, and kept it until 2014 when I turned it over to my sister, who drove it until 2015 when she traded it in for something brand new. I'll always love this car, and I get nostalgic whenever I see one on the road...

February Photo Challenge - Days #12 - #15

Day 12


This multi-media cabinet was given to me by a sweet friend. It's my pseudo TARDIS and holds not only my entire DVD collection but also most of my CDs as well.    

Day 13
 

 My arigurumi pig (left) was handmade by a blogger friend. The larger pig is now a discontinued Build-A-Bear Workshop creation that I've had for 15 years!
 
Day 14


 That red envelope was part of gift I recently received from my sweet friend who lives in Barcelona; inside were new family photos. :)

Day 15 

 As you can see, I only have half of this heart-shaped double picture frame filled...and of course it's got one of my favorite pictures of Mylo in it. I love that dog! :)

February Photo Challenge - Days #10 - #11

Day #10


I stop to admire this display every time I walk past BoonTunes on Main Street in Boonton, NJ!

Day #11


...and today I got a package in the mail from my good friend in Barcelona, Spain - cold weather goodies! This maroon knit hat and matching loop scarf are sure to keep me warm when the temperatures drop this weekend!

February Photo Challenge - Day #09


There are neon hearts galore on this super soft and ultra warm and snuggly fleece blanket I got at Five Below last year. I've had it on the foot of my bed all fall and winter, but it's especially apropos in February for Valentine's Day, of course! :)

February Photo Challenge - Day #08


I received both of these red ribbons on the wrapping from Christmas presents last year. They were so pretty I couldn't bear to throw them out, so I twisted them around this blue bottle, and put the crystal between to hold them. I think it looks pretty nice!
