Weekly Photo Challenge: New

A few new tools for my kitchen!

I’m so excited to finally be the proud owner of a Red KitchenAid Mixer! I have wanted one of these for so very long, and I finally took the plunge, waited for the sale, and bought one!

I’m so glad I did! I love it!

While I was at it, I also thought it might be a good time to update the old muffin pan  (I really should have taken a picture of the old one, it was in really bad shape), and buy a good quality, new one. I did a little research, and read that the Williams Sonoma brand was one of the best around, so again….I took the plunge.

What a fantastic decision this turned out to be! Who knew that good quality cookware could make such a difference, and also has an effect on the end product?

Now I know.

Well, I am one happy person with my new toys, and I’m looking forward to many new adventures in cooking and baking this year!

 

Are you looking for something “new” to do in 2015 on your blog?

Consider the Weekly Photo Challenge.

It’s fun, interesting, and often times challenging.  You don’t have to be a pro, (at least I hope you don’t, because I certainly am not), and there aren’t any judges. So come on, give it a try, and try something new!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

Looking out through this cave casts a unique silhouette…is it a face, a map, or maybe the outline of a state?

I’ll let you decide.

Whatever you decide I know this to be true, the view is always the same….amazing!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting

In this moment Grandpa can hold his little hand and help him up the step.  But it won’t be long before this is just a fleeting memory.

Hold on tight, because life is precious, life is sweet!

Good morning!

Looked out my window and what did I see?
A beautiful sunrise looking back at me!

What a great way to start the day.

Weekly photo challenge: illumination

I had the opportunity to make a quick trip to the east coast recently. We had just a few hours of daylight to play tourist, and see some of the great monuments in Washington D.C.

As the daylight disappeared, the illumination of the United States Capitol building at night, was a captivating sight.

Weekly photo challenge: resolved

I am resolved to read more books this year.

Probably not a library full, but I am off to a good start.  I’m half-way through my first book of this year!
