My mom is my true inspiration. From the first time she sat me down with food coloring-dyed macaroni and some glue, I was hooked on everything crafty. My mom is my best friend and biggest fan! Mom, this is for you.

Swimming with the Fishes on Valentines Day Weekend

So, I know I wrote about Valentines Day in my last post, but it is my favorite holiday so I usually tend to overdo it. Me and my husband stretched it out over the weekend and visited Boston. Boston is our favorite place to go. There is just something about it. It is the only place that still looks beautiful in the middle of February when it is cold, there is no leaves on the trees, and all you have is hard crusted mounds of brown snow left over from the last snow storm.

Anyway, I got some great shots from the New England Aquarium that was our first stop. I absolutly love aquariums. I am always surprised at how fasinated I am by the creatures that are out there...







It was really amazing. We had a great time. I put my hand next to the glass where the turtle was to give you an idea of how big he was. It was incredible! I love turtles!

I have lots more to share about our weekend, so stay tuned!
