oh the joy

new dress, Canon Digital Rebel XTi

A few things that are adding some joy...

Empire waist Summer dresses & shirts...so flattering!

My sweet new camera and lens. I placed it next to my other companion in my studio so they can get acquainted. Can't have favorites as my first one brought me blessings and magic. Yes...my camera's have feelings.

Knowing my marmie will never stop being my marmie...even though I'm all grown up (well, sort of).

My cool goddess friend Leonie in SARK's new book.

Getting more brave with raw recipes (making alfredo sauce out of cashews and garlic over julienned zucchini...yum).

The idea of slow food (no more fasties in my bellies).

An upcoming photo shoot with a mermaid that dances in vintage cowgirl boots and a dress.

Suzi's getting hitched this Saturday...so the next three days will be about mani's/pedi's at a tropical spa, a huge gathering at a pub, vows in the sand near crashing waves and the sound of Boho Boy and his bongo drums. I'll share pics when ready!

Until then...do something wild, whimsical & free and report back here to share the joy.

Big hugs to you my sweet,
Love Toni

Yesterday I walked around an empty city at 6 a.m., sipping on green pear tea, then settled to watch traffic and read poetry. One of the best mornings ever.

You inspire me so much and I love reading your blog!!

The alfredo sauce sounds yummy. Do you have a recipe that you could share? I would love to try and make it.

Isn't it great that Leoni's in the new book!? I'm really just a lurker over at her site, but I love her freedom and spirit and sense of self--and it was so fun to read about when she received her copy of the book.

Safe travels for the weekend; looking forward to the pics when you return.

Hey beautiful girl. Just wanted to say hi... haven't commented in a while, but reading as always. Hooray for JOY-filled things in your life. I'm on a 2-week trip through CA right now, so my blessings have included (so far)...

mighty sequoias and snow-capped mountains, misty roaring waterfalls at Yosemite, "the crookedest road" in San Fran, the HUGE golden gate bridge, river rapids and flowers and blue skies and ENDLESS opportunities for photography, lots of silly laughter with my younger brother...... and to be continued as I move south through Ca.

I had the most wonderful time with my daddy this weekend. We watched movies together, had dinner, visited the city he grew up in and i listened to his childhood stories.

On saturday I had my second poetry workshop. i am falling in love with poetry

This morning I had breakfast with a friend on the beach and later we drank a glass of rosé wine and enjoyed good conversation.

Hope your weekend was as magical, whimsical and free as mine.
