So 30 days ago, I stumbled upon this image on Instagram.
...and with it, I flew.
Thank you, FatMumSlim.
It was a much-needed daily 2-5 minute creative distraction sent down from the heavens to deliver my soul from monotony. I shall be joining you for #FebPhotoADay.
Here's been bits from my January 2012:

Day 2: ham, egg, cheese, tomato panini & side o' coffee
Day 3: my Alejandro, on my pillow...I wake up to this every morning
Day 4: took off from work, took a bath, took a 3-hour nap, took my mailbox
Day 5: my triple hearts headband
Day 6: my Carmen in a Smucker's box
