Taking Stock :: May

This week I had a chance to get caught up on all the blogs I follow. I really enjoy the opportunity to get a glimpse into someone else’s world, to see what inspires them and to get creative ideas from another mind. I stumbled upon a blog from a girl I knew of in high school (I was totally creeping your following blogs RM šŸ™‚ This was a little blonde girl I remember flitting around Sydenham, popping into the grocery store to buy a few things for her mom and always seeming so tiny and cute. Well, sometimes I have a habit of forgetting that I am not the only one who ages. Sometimes I bump into my friends’ little siblings and I am totally taken aback by how grown up they are. This girl in particular (who’s blog I stumbled upon) is now a beautiful grown woman, wife, mother and photographer. Yup, I feel old! ha ha Anyhow, she “Takes Stock” every now and then and I think it is a fabulous idea. I am not the only one because I see others are now taking stock as well šŸ™‚ Here it goes (I hope she doesn’t mind…..she strikes me a gal who would be happy to creatively inspire others šŸ™‚
