March Photo A Day - 1/31 - Something that Makes Me Smile

Spending time with my sister, Sheena, and niece, Ella, is one the things that makes me smile the most!  Especially since they live 12 hours away from me and I don't get to spend nearly enough time with them. I am currently visiting my family in Minnesota (thus I am late starting and posting this challenge), and after a long drive here, I was completely exhausted yesterday so Ella and I went back to Sheena's house so I could take a nap.  This is what I woke up to.... isn't she precious?


My sister, who is an amazing cook, asked me what I wanted to eat while I am here, and the first thing out of my mouth was "Shredded Beef Tacos".  She made these for me a few years back, and I couldn't wait for her to cook them for me again!!! My sister has a hugely successful food blog and asked for some help with staging and photographing her amazing creations!  So last night I taught her a few things about her camera and we played around setting up her staging area with various props she has.  So much fun!

Here are a few images that I took with my camera.... The Shredded Beef Tacos were just as amazing as I remembered!!  She also made homemade Spanish Rice!


And we finished off the evening with Mixed Berry Bellini's!! I think we need to make these again tonight!



  1. Such an amazing evening you girls had. Fantastic picture of Gabreilla.

  2. Your sister Sheena has the best recipes! I plan to try the Strawberry or Peach Bellini this afternoon.
