Sunday, January 24

and so it begins

-Lewis Carroll (from Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872)
"The time has come," the Walrus said
To talk of many things:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings."

It's funny how over the past few months, I've been obsessing over starting a blog of my own, how I've written pages and pages in my head of wonderful things to post, how I have a folder in my "Pictures" file already devoted to this blog, and yet the first words to type just don't flow through my fingers. 
The first two pictures I have posted are my tribute to the "daily-syle" blogs, particularly Orchid Grey and This Time Tomorrow.  I'll admit I'm still quite the amateur at the self-photography, and I'm definitely no model!  But I think I will have fun trying to imitate the creativity of these two girls!

And so, in true form of such blogs, I give you the list:
Sweater: Forever 21 ($16?)
Belt: Thrift ($1)
Skirt: Victoria's Secret ($15?)
Tights: Kohl's ($5)
Shoes: ModCloth (Christmas Present from Mom!)

Now that that is out of my system...

Like everyone else, I suppose a blog is my new public journal.  Plus, I know I won't be taking pictures of myself in fun outfits I've put together often enough to warrant a whole blog!  This is where Lewis Carroll's words really come into play, as I may post about really anything!  For example:
Behold Manfreda undulata.  This 4" square container is sitting in the mist room of the greenhouse where I work.  I find it fascinating that the seeds remain attached to the growing seedlings!

welcome to my world...
