Nice: (adj) virtuous; respectable; decorous

This coming week I am planning a session to photograph a 'certain potter's' work. Check back for the pottery images-- They are for the Muddy Brook Potters' website, which is to be launched soon!

Speaking of pottery and photography, when I saw this a few days ago on ericamay's blog, I was so surprised and honored- I just had to share with the rest of you, since she has played an important role in my progression as a photographer. It's interesting to note how the collaboration happened- it was a merging of two of my favorite things- gardening and photography! Does it get any better than that?! Erica's help and kindness, constructive feedback, and advice have been invaluable. And she's just plain nice! I've posted a small portion of the entry from her blog-

HER ENTRY:

I received the best thoughtful gift in the mail today… all the way from Connecticut! :)

"Several weeks ago (maybe a few months now!), I had the privilege of “meeting” Betsy through my blog. Betsy stumbled across my blog through another photographer’s blog and left me a few comments (including solving the mystery of what type of plant is featured in the photograph that hangs above our fireplace!). I sent her an e-mail thanking her for “stopping by” and providing me with the answer to a question that had plagued my thoughts for so long! :)

So we got to e-mailing back and forth, and I found out that Betsy is an aspiring photographer in Connecticut who also has a very full plate besides her pursuit into the world of photography. Through our e-mails, we started up a conversation about what it’s like to start a photography business, the steps she can take to kick-start her career, tips about photography in general, and basically just have a conversation about something we both love — photography, of course! :)..."

In other 'news', our oldest, Joel, had his tonsils removed yesterday, and some ear drum repair done. 'Poor duffer is hurting. Big time. He's a trooper, though. We have loads of books for him, and a freezer full of ice cream and popsicles. And Dad just came home with a McDonald's milkshake! (Yeah, he's the fun parent :) So, I've learned two things today:

1) Who knew a 9-year-old boy could get sick of ice cream?!
2) And, though at first he disagreed, I guess Joel's not 'too old' for a stuffed animal.

So I'll just share this quick pic:

Check back soon for more images. It's going to be a pivotal week for me, and I'm really looking forward to something special! I'll keep you posted. I will...
