I'm still sneaking in a little bit of sewing and instagramming. Even though I'm busy with work, I still want to do some DIY, so super quick and easy projects are the order of the day.

A few weeks ago I had an opportunity to work with real birds. Thanks to the girl you see on those photos, Dorota, we could see and touch truly beautiful and magnificent owls. We were working with Jarosław Przydacz, the man who takes care of them every day. He was answering our questions and he told us how to work with real birds. That was a great experience - it wasn't easy to take photos of those beautiful creatures, but it was definitely worth it. . by benita

Every day is the best day of your life. Tomorrow is not promised, so live today to the fullest: be kind to those less fortunate, be generous to those down on their luck, and make time to let your loved ones know how grateful you are you to have them in your life.

3 Day Military Diet. I did this three day diet a couple of times when I was younger (late teens, i think) Anywho, it does work. Twice I lost 10 pounds in those three days, But if you dont continue to eat well and exercise, you will gain the weight back in the 4 days off. I always thought it would be a good jumpstart diet. I might try this one again, glad I found it. -Tara by carolina
