Macro Friday, Happiness, and Remembering

Today is many things. It’s the Friday of a holiday weekend (WOO HOO!) It’s my sister in law’s birthdays. (Yes, both of them were born on the same day, 4 years apart. Crazy, right?) It’s also the birthday of a few friends. And it’s one year to the day that our friend John passed away unexpectedly.

John – we love you and miss you so much. It hasn’t gotten any easier in the past year. I know your Facebook page is going to blow up today, but then again, it seems like there isn’t a day that goes by where someone isn’t writing to you, or remembering you in some way. You are, and will always be, forever with us.

In other news, I’m participating in Macro Friday again, hosted by Blogging From Bolivia.

The rules, from the blog…

… participating is easy, just put a macro photo on YOUR blog with a link to me so others can play along, then come back to MY blog to link up (below)! You have all weekend to enter (now through Sunday at midnight). You can include as many photos as you’d like in your post, but select and specify just one as an entry for voting.

These are from the day Dave and I spent at Pelham Bay Park last weekend. While I posted many of the pictures I took in my last post, I also tried to play with my macro setting…






Obviously there’s more, but I bored you all with pictures in the last post, so I won’t bore you again here. 🙂

Happy weekend!! We’re going to try and make the best of the weekend, because life is too short… and there are so many things to be happy about.

  4. Suburban Sweetheart says

    Thinking of you today as you handle the difficult one-year anniversary of John's death. I know all too well how tough that first anniversary can be – & every one after, really – but I hope you've begun to remember him with more joy than sadness. <3

  5. Love all the shots, and I'm so sorry about the passing of your friend a year ago.

  6. lovely macro shots!
    life is short so we should enjoy every minute of it
    sorry about your friend,

  7. Great shots! Macro is so addicting! I occasionally get sucked in taking pictures of flowers and dog noses and bright-colored beetles.

  8. Great shots!! I really like the second to the last one – beautiful color 🙂
