which is better?

Improving your photography skills or a trip to the Greek Islands?  Why not do both at once?   I mentioned I had read about a photography course in Greece that I would post about later.  Well, this is it! 


Cocoa Daisy is offering this phenomenal package on photography and scrapbooking.    From September 19 through the 25th, you’ll join Cocoa Daisy and their guest experts on the island of Mykonos.  Sigh, swoon, and just generally scream out loud, ladies.

Now, I am not familiar with the other instructors in the class, but I am crazy about the photography of Karen Russell.  She makes even every day photos of her family look like photo shoots.  If you are not familiar with her site, check it out.  But be prepared, because her children are super cute, especially that adorable Annie.  Oh my!  Her webpage is here.

This is a trip I would love to take.  September in the Greek Islands is gorgeous ladies.  All the beautiful with far fewer tourists.   The light in Greece is something you have to see.   I’ve never been to Mykonos, but I’d be glad to sign up and take a look!  Wouldn’t this be a terrific trip to take with a good friend? 

Sweet dreams, ladies.  Sweet dreams.
