    Garden Porn

    Going over administrative things today – mainly more ways to do/be marketing/profitable without having to actually do the work… it’s not going well – and as I scour the internet I’m reminded on how important visual representation is. One’s blog is like one’s face, if we were to compare websites to people, and the nicer it is the more people like to linger and read what you’re about.

My Aunt Ferne passed a few weeks ago and as a result, my family got together and spent a week partying, celebrating her life and giving her one last toast. Yes, it’s quite Irish of us. Scotch-Irish to be exact. Here’s a few snaps from my time there: Blue skies… all damn day long… sigh, so nice. My favorite spot on my aunty and uncle’s front lawn. Yes, that’s their infinity pool.
