Lost in Wonderland

I just realized I didn't post anything yesterday! I don't have an excuse because I was completely unproductive and didn't get anything done yesterday, so it must have just slipped my mind!

Anyway, if you follow me on Twitter, you know that I've gone on some awesome morning walks yesterday and today. Usually, I like to walk in the evening with my hubby, but he's been working late and is too tired by the time he comes home. So after taking a week or so off, I decided to start walking in the morning by myself.

When my hubby and I walk, we have a loop that we usually do that has some great hills, but it's on a really busy main street. I walked it once by myself and I just didn't feel comfortable. So a couple weeks ago, when my hubby and I were out on an evening walk, I asked him to test out a new route with me and we found this nice, quiet neighborhood with little to no traffic. It basically loops around and you end up coming out the same way you came in, so any traffic it does have is just people going to their houses. There are no hills unfortunately, but I feel a lot safer walking there by myself.

Anyway, that's a lot of build up to what I really want to tell you. This is a funny little neighborhood. When you first walk into it, it seems really cute. Cute little houses with flower beds and fences on a curvy little road. But as you walk further into it, it feels to me like I'm walking through Wonderland. All the houses are one story, tiny little cottages and they look almost exactly the same. I feel like a giant walking through the Land of the Little People or something. And there's one front yard that has like 10 different kinds of trees of all different heights in a small little area. It's so hilarious.

Reading that back, it doesn't sound as funny as it looks and feels, so you probably think I'm crazy. Maybe tomorrow morning I'll take my camera out with me and see if I can capture the "Lost in Wonderland" type feeling I get when I walk there.

In other news (not that anything I have to say is news worthy), our neighbors upstairs got a new puppy a few weeks ago. She's so darn cute I can't even stand it, and she was outside playing so I went out to chat with my neighbor and took a few photos of her.

She looks so sad in this one, but she's still the cutest little thing!

I just love this one of her digging with her nose in the grass!
I might actually use it for my leading lines assignment for school.
So if any of you photography buffs are reading out there, let me know if you think this is a good leading lines photo please!

I just had a chance to read your bio as well. Praise God for blogging and journaling and for a community of women who just want to be content with wherever they are and comfortable in their own skin. I hope you have a great day!

She is cute! I need to go on a long walk, but to be honest? I hate walking! I'd rather run!

What a cute puppy! When I go on walks I always envision who lives in each house - it takes my mind of of the fact that I am doing something healthy!
