Week 14: Something Slimy

This past weekend, I made my monthly trip down to Northern Virginia to hang out with my FAVORITE oldest nephew for his 1st birthday (more pictures of that later)! While I was there, I was thinking of the 52 Weeks of Awesomeness and I knew that I needed to photograph something slimy...then it hit me, I love syrup, but I absolutely hate how it gets all sticky and yucky on your hands! My brother in law makes amazing breakfasts and so while he was pouring some syrupy goodness all over his pumpkin pancakes from Trader Joe's, I snapped a few pictures! 

As you can tell, my life is quite food oriented. My mom always taught me that the best way to show your generosity and love is through food which is exactly why you can tell that I've been well-loved in my life! =)
