"52 Weeks"~~~~16/52 Photos of Me

Forever In Blue Jeans

Carin over at "Forever in Blue Jeans" has given the challenge of moms finally getting in front of the camera. It has been fun participating in it, and I dare say it's been a challenge.

Last weekend, Shawn and I had the opportunity to go to Barcelona for 3 WHOLE days, all by ourselves, to explore the city, sip some sangrias, and just relax. It was amazing.

I've only put a few pictures in this post, but will most assuredly put more in the next. It's late and I'm tired, so I'll keep this brief.

The weather was around in the low 70's and it felt really great. This cafe' was near the all famous Sagrada Familia. It's a ginormous church that Antoni Gaudi started around the beginning of the 18th century and died before his work could be finished. It is currently be worked on and the construction should be completed by 2026. Wow! That'll take awhile.

I interrupt photos of aforementioned site, to bring you this. The-tiny-door-within-a-giant-door that is the entrance to the apartment we stayed in. We both managed to not get hurt while entering and exiting the many times that we did.

A kind woman took this picture of us. Don't worry, later on in the trip we lugged the all important tri-pod with us, so as not to bother both poor, unsuspecting tourists or locals.

And a few repeats from the fun I had at Picnik dot com to make this collage.

happy thursday!

Funny about that door... it looks like one that could become known as "the door of many names". :) I love huge doors like that... have never seen a small one inset, though.

What a wonderful time to spend away together.
