somewhere near

poem #1
temptation beckons with
a soft whisper
yearning sweet
love skims close
over the skin
resting over the heart

poem #2
here we stand
ever apart
never touching
reaching out
yet much too far

poem #3
somewhere near
unseen in the shadows
listening and waiting
lit with such
vying for release
against the darkness
nestled much too close

me and a Sweet Bliss cupcake
me and my first Sweet Bliss cupcake yesterday

We hit the Sweet Bliss Cupcakes shop yesterday after a tasty lunch at Johnny Garlic’s at The Streets. Mmmmm, my cupcake! I can’t wait to go back and try more. The hubby had this one:

Maple Bacon

My tooth pretty much made me miserable ALL WEEKEND. I iced it, took lots of Advil, and tried to numb it whenever I could. Last night the pain finally subsided enough and I’m going to the dentist tomorrow after work to get it checked. Ugh!

Umm, the Academy Awards. I loved Ellen’s bits (she’s an awesome host) but otherwise I found it mostly boring. And I totally sucked it in my choices for the winners. Ye gods. Oh well, it was worth it to see Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron on the stage together. I always want to say I don’t like blondes but damn, I do love Charlize. She is BEAUTIFUL. I think I was so gobsmacked by the double does of hotness that I totally forgot to listen to them speak. LOL! Ooops!

a weird angle but you get the idea
