Into the woods

Good Monday morning everyone. Taking some photos for the blog has been a real challenge lately. We are doing some updates around the house which takes lots of my time and there's this winter weather that slows me down with my day to day routine. I prefer to stay in bed if I can all day, warm & toasty under the covers. Well in reality that is not gonna happen because I have things to do, people to see and so on and on.... On a cold day like yesterday, a coffee in hand & a very cooperative little boy as my back up photographer makes everything flows smoothly. 
I love a good poncho. I adore them ! It is so comfortable in many ways you can imagine. Well, that may be overly dramatic but yes, it's really comfortable. And since I find myself obsessing with gray lately, you know it's a no brainer that this one came home with me.  
I even wear it to church(don't judge :)
As we are walking outside the church parking lot, my son asked? 
"Mom, what do you call what you're wearing? 
Me, a "poncho". 
Then he said, "the kind they wear at the village". 
"Me, what village? 
My son says in "Peru".
 Me. " how did you know? 
Son replied, "from the book I was reading
Ha, ha, ha.................
After church my son took these photos but as he gets closer and took his so called "favorite shots", we have these conversation again. 
"Mom, I know why dad fell in love with you & marry you" . 
Me,  why? 
Son, " I wouldn't tell because I am embarrassed to tell you.  
Me, "ok boo spit it out" . 
Because you are H.O.T. (he spelled it out!)
Ha ha ha.......... 
 I told my husband about it and me and him had a good laugh. 
Who knew that I can be a H.O.T villager from Peru. 

I hope you have a fantastic Monday.
Thank you from the heart.
xoxo
Sam
