My Weekend In Pictures

I've had a pretty amazing weekend and I couldn't JUST do a Saturday Cell Phone Mosaic this week.  Saturday was nice. With my 1st 1/2 marathon long run and the tears shed when I officially signed up for the race,  a canoe trip with 18 of our friends, and then food porn, what could be better.  Here I share with you, Saturday:

Now, Saturday was pretty nice. Good workout, good friends, good food. But Sunday DEFINITELY tried to outdo. I decided to spend some glorious ME time at Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, where currently Dale Chihuly is exhibiting glass works in celebration of the 15th Anniversary of Meijer Gardens. 24 "pieces" were displayed in 15 locations throughout the gardens (in addition to the 2 Chihuly glass sculptures the gardens have on permanent display). I spent several hours wandering the gardens and snapping away on my iPhone while people around me clicked away on their massive Nikons and Canons. I'm sure they thought I was nuts, but I didn't care. No one to distract me from appreciating an artist I admire. Now, there are literally TONS of sculptures at Meijer gardens, only a few of which made it into my photos. If you are ever in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area, I highly recommend stopping at the gardens for a visit.

So, without further ado, I present to you, Chihuly: A New Eden.
