happy friday, everyone!

this week's been quite the week. in some ways, it seems as though certain aspects of my job are winding down, while others are just ramping up - it's always exciting to start something new.

we're in a time of year right now where i'm not only looking forward to planning the fresh beginning of the leadership development program that i run (yes, it's starting next september but i need tons of planning time), but new developments with the orientation drop-in program that will be starting in may, and then of course everything that comes with student success + retention programming in the university atmosphere. then, thrown into the mix, there's a small conference in june, and a national conference in november. ah, the life of a student affairs professional - it's gonna be a busy few months!

in between meetings today, i busted out this month's martha stewart living and there was a feature in there for a photographic compilation called egg & nest by photographer rosamond purcell. now, i'm generally not the hugest fan of all things bird and eggy - i don't hate them, mind you, i'm more ambivalent about them than anything - but there was something about this book (or perhaps it was the feature on dyeing your own easter eggs that came after it?) that piqued my fancy. i thought, in honour of the spring that's arriving everywhere except for toronto, it'd be lovely to have an avian-themed mosaic to accompany today's post.

and a ring, just because i thought it was too awesome not to include. hey - it could fit, if it were a nature theme. and it could be.

what sorts of things are you looking forward to this mid-march weekend?

I love the mosaic, and especially that ring, because I would love to say, "Just a minute, I have to mow my ring."

very cool compilation of photos! I am looking forward to celebrating my birthday with my husband this weekend. although the actual birthday day isn't until monday, since we won't be able to see each other then we are planning a little something this weekend. Can't wait! I miss him so much. :)

Yeah, your mosaic is not bad but y'all might wanna check out the nerd mosaic on my blog ;)

I love the way you set that up!! Wonderful finds - making me wish spring was here already.

mike - that's some pretty shameless self-promotion there. you're totally hijacking my comments page! ;)

I love the bird theme. This weekend we don't have much going on, but next weekend we leave for vacation, yeah!

Oh, what lovely images. Love the "tweet" journal. Also, spring ins't coming here to Jackson Hole anytime soon either (it was -2 this morning!).

I'm looking foward to the sunshine peeking out (I know it will--keeping my fingers crossed) and taking some nice photographs of the city FINALLY. :-) Love these images...do you want to exchange links? I love your blog!

Oddly enough, I kind of do love eggs. I don't know why. I mean, I don't post pictures of them all over my house or anything, but I love looking at them.

love your compilation, just right for spring on its way
: )

Audrey said...

Good morning!! I have an award for you. Please come to my blog to get it!

Diana said...

Thank you so much for including my eggs! I love Rosamond Purcell's work - I discovered her soon after starting my own natural history series of photographs.

Beautiful mosaic. I'm jumping on the birdie wagon with some new items that I haven't yet put in the store. There's just something about the birds. :o)
