Sparkling Whine

My apologies in advance if the touch-ups and/or filter are distracting for you, when viewing this photo. Earlier in the day that this photo was taken, I dropped my curling iron, which ricocheted off of the bathroom counter and hit me square in the abdomen. Holden kept requesting that I move the sparkler a bit lower, so as to hide my scorched skin, but I was too busy focusing on not getting burned for a second time that day. So, we were left to hide the damage as best as we could.

A very happy Independence Day, to those of you in the States! May your celebration be joyful and fun but, more importantly, safe! ~C

    We all suffer for our art Camille, but you suffer so much more beautifully than the rest of us ๐Ÿ˜‰ I hope the burns heal quickly and thank you for being brave enough to give us this gorgeous image x

    p.s. it reminds me of going to a concert by the American guitarist Stefan Grossman. Whilst laboriously tuning up he muttered, “Twenty years I’ve suffered for my art–now it’s your turn.”

      Awww, that’s very sweet of you! I can identify with Mr. Grossman’s comment — We often post photos that we don’t expect to draw a lot of attention, but we know the story behind their creation and love them just the same! Like this one, for example. ~C

      Well, you know, we had to buy some stuff for the little kids, in addition to the high powered ordnance we used for the bigger displays… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Glad you enjoyed this one! ~C

      Thank you, Marc! I gave the curling iron a stern talking-to, and so I don’t expect any repeated misbehavior! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ~C
