Day Eight in the Burrow

Love is in the air here in Adelaide. I've never seen so many burly blokes walking around with flowers, so many women choosing romantic greeting cards and the photo booth in Rundle Mall was pretty popular during the office lunch break.
I was feeling pretty clever at having created a silhouette card for my beloved for Valentine's Day, the first one we've spent apart in about 25 years. But later in the day from my gym in the sky, I noticed the most romantic thing I have ever seen. Two teens had organised a picnic date, with towel, music and food carefully laid out on the very rooftop of one of Adelaide's inner city buildings.
My visit to the publisher went for over an hour. I am so grateful to these lovely ladies for the gift of their time, expertise and genuine interest in my work. Tomorrow I will be beginning another re-write of my picture book manuscript, but this time with fresh ideas and motivation. Thank you!
See if you can find the teens in the pic below.

Ow, that's so romantic. I love the pic of the teenagers of the roof and your card is beautiful.

Thanks, Renee. I couldn't help but snap that pic of the kids. They made me smile, it was so cute.

The girl in this card is very similar to the 7yr-old girl in your shadow... in your cutesy-dress. Love that! :)

I thought so too, Kat! Weird isn't it?
