In the first Happy Book shake-up challenge posed by Jamie about a week ago, we were to choose a mascot and photograph it along our weekly travels.
I chose to use my doll from a set of four doll Christmas ornaments I gave to my closest friends last Christmas. Unfortunately I didn't do too much photographing of her last week, but I did manage to take a couple of photos.
Once at Chick-fil-a with their tasty lemonade...
...and another day at my husband's softball game. Here she sits on the game ball in my bag chair.
What I thought most remarkable, however, was what happened at the end of the week. This weekend we went to the Philadelphia zoo with some friends. I was looking at some animal or other when one of my friends said, "Wow! A butterfly just landed on you! They must really like you." Still trying to process what I just heard, I turned to my husband and caught sight of the butterfly just on the back of my shoulder.
The remarkable thing is that the butterfly is my kindred animal spirit. You might say the butterfly is my actual mascot. And there one was just resting on my shoulder. I felt like Cinderella.
