A Rainy Sunday
Today.....was my brother-in-law's birthday. We showed up at his church with secret plans of what we thought he would enjoy doing to celebrate becoming 31. Nate is a great guy. I am blessed to have him as a brother....and he really does feel like a little brother. I try to only boss him sometimes. Lol! He is a talented graphic designer. When I am struggling with a painting, he is great to ask because he sees composition, is honest, AND he likes my work. There are many more things that could be said about him.
On the way from the parking garage, in downtown Cedar Rapids, to the church I saw this gorgeous, linear scene. My angles are not perfect in the capture....but close enough to capture the mood of what I saw and felt.
Isn't is beautiful? Coming.....and going......imagine the conversations that linger in the air.......hmmnnnn.
And while I was making my husband, Louis, wait for me why not take advantage of his photography skills and capture my latest adapted recycled garment.
I took a tweed blazer that was given to me by my friend Chris, to be recycled and made........A CAPE! I am spending a year wearing a cape. It's ok if that doesn't make sense to you. It makes perfect sense to me and that is what matters.
I just cut the arms off and tucked in the arm hole. It isn't perfect....but it was fun to wear.
We had lunch together and then headed off for some shopping. Nate really enjoys shopping and we had somewhere in mind that was a bit of a drive, therefore made it special.
I rode with my Mr. Handsome.
I know the world kind of makes fun of the over use of selfies, but I really enjoy the expressions that come when people see themselves looking back. It is pretty precious. And so is this lady. She has become one of my Cherry Building friends. We have such interesting conversation.
Talk to you soon!
