I know this is far from weekly, but I will try to be on time in the future. Right before I would have posted week #2, I was called suddenly out of town. My mother has been diagnosed with lung cancer, and could no longer live at home. Two weeks later, we finally have her out of the hospital, moved into our house, and life is slowly settling back into normal. My apologies, but as I told my class when I returned, I would have much rather been here than dealing with all of that!



I was inspired for this week's thread by putting up Valentine's Day decorations while I did my Saturday cleaning. I realized I needed to get some sweets for my Valentine candy dishes, and the idea formed. There are so many things that can be described as sweet - food, children, significant others, pets, even a really "sweet" ride, or a "sweet" stunt at the upcoming olympics! Show me what's sweet in your life right now! (Again, these photos aren't mine as I hope to play along.)

"Life is short, and it is up to you to make it sweet." -Sarah Louise Delany

So sorry to hear about your Mom. I didn't play along last month because it was too cold to take my gloves off outside and push buttons on a camera. Brrr, but I thought about last month's challenge as I looked out the window and saw things I would take a photo of if it weren't so cold. I'll try to play along this month, I wonder what I would consider sweet.

Oh, Jenn, I'm so sorry you're all having to deal with health issues.

Your challenge pages are fantastic - I hope you're keeping them, too!

Thanks all for the well-wishes for my mother.

Here's my photo, inspired by the quote I used above - "Life is short, it is up to you to make it sweet." My daughter really, really wanted this dress for her winter semi-formal, but she was waffling and almost settled for a very blah and traditional black and white dress that she didn't really like because she was afraid of what other people might think. So I reminded her she was leaving for Temple, and only those people who would love her whatever she wore would still see her a year from now. So, she bought the dress, the "arc reactor" necklace and earrings, and the "galaxy boots". Being yourself is pretty sweet! (And I think she looks sweet all comic-geeked up!)

I am sorry to hear about your mom's disease. Sending lots of good thoughts your way! I did not make the last month's challenge, but hope to do this one.
Love your pictures Jenn! And the story even more! You have got an awesome girl!

Oh, she is darling! I'll bet she got all kinds of compliments!

Good for her, she looks great! She's got the shape to pull that off, too.

Thanks all for the well wishes and compliments on Kai. She had a great time, and everyone liked the dress.

But I want to see your photos! No one found anything sweet this week? Hopefully the new challenge I posted is easier!
