Saturday Snapshot...Quiet Birthday Rain...


For more of this week's Saturday Snapshots, please visit Alyce with At Home With Books.

Last weekend was quiet and rainy, and although my husband and I originally planned to go the Italian Festival to celebrate my birthday, we ended up heading to a cute café for coffee, then spent the rest of the quiet day with family. After that, it was home to finish reading creepy Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier and then starting the gruesome Vlad: The Last Confession by C.C. Humphreys. It was one of my favorite days...

  1. Those are pretty cool pictures. I especially like the one looking out the rainy car window; it's very . . . moody.

  2. I like the rainy shot too. You got coffee and a book- of course it was a great day! I must get to reading Rebecca someday. I have a copy sitting on the shelf too.

  4. Thanks, guys! And Lisa - these current photos are actually all shot through the Instagram app on my iPhone. If you have an iPhone, you should definitely download the app since it's free! Not to mention, the filters are extremely cool - you will love it!

  6. Thanks!! I just got an iphone yesterday, very excited! (as an aside...my 4 y/o was checking it out while my 7 y/o was wildly waving his arms in the air telling a story...the iphone went flying, landed on concrete and cracked. Wah!! Still works though!)

  7. @Lisa - Yay you got an iPhone, but oh no, it cracked!! I hope it's not too bad of a crack, but they have some awesome covers for the phones. A warning on the Instagram app - it will be extremely addicting :)

  11. I actually love rainy days when I'm doing something like visiting cafes, or reading.

    Love the look of the side mirror in the rain. Very artsy.

  16. The Instagram app looks very cool. And here I thought you spent an hour with photoshop actions.

    It would be disappointing to miss the fest but it instead your day turned out wonderfully. I love when that happens!

  23. Love the photos! I feel kind of left out, not having a fancy phone and the ability to use instagram, with its uber cool effects.

    Rebecca is also terrific.

  29. Hey, we both posted pictures of coffee! So awesome. I looooooooooooove coffee!
    And Rebecca, oh, I have that book sitting here, so near to me. I've wanted to read it for so long now... I wonder if you enjoyed it. It's not even on my bookshelf, it's laying horizontal next to my desk in a very "pick me up and read me" fashion!
