Macro Friday: Opposites

I have two macro shots to share today (you may pick your favorite). The first shot is something my kiddos love and the second shot is something their mommy loves. Please enjoy!

My kids Love These:
Who am I kidding, I love these too!

Crayola crayons oh how we (heart) you! We color and we tare. We break and we tape. We are not always gentle and we (Hannah) may take some bites out of you, but you are always there. Oh, how we enjoy your color and how you brighten our day. Thank you for being so much fun in such a simple way! (A bit out of character for me, but fun and what's wrong with the occasional rhyme or poem anyway.)

Momma Loves This:
Yet again, who am I kidding? My kids play with this at every chance.

A little background on my "Love" up above. Yes, this is a picture of my beautiful (actually brown) coach purse. The back story is that my husband got me this a few years ago for Valentine's Day because I used to foolishly (when I had the time) drool over the pictures on the Coach website but never (EVER) purchased one (and never would have. Super Expensive!) So he splurged for me and bought it as a gift and he told me I deserve something extra every once and a while too (something else about me: I DISLIKE spending money). As you can see, it's getting a little worn, but it shows how much I love it. The best things in life are worn and comfy (at least in mine).

Thank you for stopping by and please feel free to share any comments you might have!

  9. lovely shots and what an appreciative husband you have to have bought that purse for you. I too would never spend that type of money on something for myself. He must think you are so special in his life. :) Rosie, Centre of Interest photoblog

  10. Thank you everyone! He is a wonderful man for sure. Oddly enough his favorite shot were the crayons too, but I couldn't pass up posting the coach bag with it. The crayon shot is my first shot edited in GIMP only so I'm so happy that it worked out!
