You have such a great way of picking out images. They always go together so beautifully. Good eye!

I think these would make a great set of blank greeting cards or a cool coffee table book. I hope you're planning on doing something with all this!

Meri said...

Eating Nutella while neglecting chores to play is the best, n'est-ce pas?

Miko's Girl said...

I love your alphabets series. My n word is newlywed as I just went to a bridal shower for my cousin's fiance. She is Romanian and baffled by our American customs.

Hi Relyn~ So glad you are back!!! Lucky lucky lucky to be on break! We're still 9 days out from the end so my "N" is ...neverending- or at least that's how the year feels right now. Thanks so much for all the post comments- it's such a treat to hear from you! What plans do you have for the summer?

Christina said...

YAY for the alphabet... and you! xo

smith kaich jones said...

Oh, I am so silly. I previewed my comment & then forgot to post it. NO brains! :) But I will say this again - that you are like a conductor, leading us all in a symphony of words, and it is fun, fun to read these posts, and fun, fun to read the comments. I love it.

Mary-Laure said...

And it's the first letter of my last name, too.

Jessica said...

I was going to say "n" is for "nutella" but you thought of that. It's my favorite afternoon treat with an apple and cup of tea!

I do love it! And I love your "n"s too!

Jaime said...

Your lists bring me so much bliss! My fav...nesting instinct. Not sure why...I just like that one.

I haven't had Nutella in ages! Now I want to pick me up a jar. And some soft bread cut in thick slices, and slather the stuff all over it and eat like a child.

I love this game you play, Relyn :) It's fun to exercise your noggin thinking of wonderful things that start with a certain letter! So fun!
Have a Happy Day!

Ms. K @ Write On Thyme said...

Well, I don't buy Nutella unless My French Babies are here (my niece and nephew) but now I'm going to have to try it with apple (in the afternoon with tea!). Love your lists, Relyn!
How 'bout New York Nanosecond!
Happy Vacation!
