Motto Monday


I went dancing tonight.
I say 'dancing' in a plea to make the whole experience sound mildly romantic, but in fact, it was Zumba.
Ricky Martin and the shaking of imaginary maracas was the order of the night.
I had so much fun and just love that post-exercise rush you acquire after an hour of hip shaking and bongo drumming. I am a true convert and will be adding Zumba to my weekly repertoire of fitness festivities.


My Monday Motto of the week: Capture that Moment.
Cliched but oh so true and relevant. Since I began blogging, my love for big lenses and sharp focus has become more astute and I now rarely find myself without my camera by my side, just poised, ready to portrait those little things in life that can so easily pass you by.

Very happy to see that I'm following all the 'to stalk' blogs :)
I love photos, I have always been rather snap happy, but since the blog I have been more so & got into photography a lot more also. I'm doing a part time college course next year in photography & hope it build it up a bit more. I think memories are so very imporant

loving your posts sweetie
