10. The thought of my sweet 16 in August!! =D
If you haven't already received this award, go ahead and take it! =D
Also, I'm entering Johanna's photography contest, and the category is flowers. I went outside this afternoon and took a bunch of pictures. So, here's the ones I entering:


Johannah, I don't know if pic #1 counts because it's in the sepia color. You said no editing, but I wasn't sure exactly what you meant by that, so if you want them in standard color, and nothing else, I can choose a different picture to use instead of this one. =) Just let me know!


Okay, the whole time I was taking pic #4 I was thinking, "Okay, bee, don't move! Don't move! Please don't move!" And just as he started to fly away, my camera stopped acting up and snapped the picture. Ah. I was satisfied. =)

Now, my friends Bekah and Carissa are both having a giveaway!! =D How exciting!! If you would like to enter Bekah's giveaway, click here.

You WON'T regret it! Trust me!! ;D

I love the one with the bee. Pictures with flowers and bees are always great.
And I'm not afraid of bees. Some days ago I stood in the middle of a canola field and there were hundreds of busy bees around me. It was just amazing!
