Cookies & Milk

Cookies & milk was the photo challenge at hand,


so she gathered her staples and laid out a plan.


She measured and mixed and and she stirred, then stirred more,


till it all came together as she had done once before.


She rolled out the dough and cut into shapes,


then set in the oven and watched as they baked.


Once they were done they were laid out to rest,


then with some sugar she got them all dressed.


As she laid out the scene and looked at the goodies,

she thought


“all we need in this life is love… and some cookies.”


Ok, so maybe I got a little carried away with this Be Still assignment, but I’m thinking the class is just as much about having a little fun as it is about trying to take good pictures!

Thanks for stopping by.
