I stopped at the farmers market recently and couldn’t wait to get home to take some pretty photos.

The desire burned to make fruity shakes with the pretty fruit…Peach, Strawberry, Apricot Shakes to be exact. Oh, by the way ~ it’s my birthday today. Oh happy day!

Fuzzy peaches are fun to photograph…as are sweet deer in your backyard.

Deer | Telluride, Colorado |

Doe deer that has a little yellow flower sticking out of the corner of her mouth.

My friend says that she looks like a señorita ~ how true!

You can make these shakes vegan or not. Your call.

I like ’em both ways.

Do you have any great stuff planned for the week ahead? I have  fun work deals in the pipeline & neat photography events ahead of me.

This shake will keep energy levels high & the belly good & satisfied.
