28 of 365.... and one forgotten


A week after my husband gave me the white flowers, they were still alive and even more beautiful! Worth another shot.

The other day, after lunch, the girls left there milk glasses on the table. One is half empty and the other is half full. Or is it the other way around?

17 of 365 A Survivor


It is cold outside. So cold that all of my plants are turning brown. But even so, this little flower showed it pretty face yesterday and it is still there today. A bit of spring in the gray winter.

14 of 365 Stairway to ?


While taking photos at a birthday party, I passed these stairs. The sunlight was coming to through the window and it was just to awesome not to photograph. Where these stairs led to I have no clue.

Flavors in life... 10 of 365


I love to bake. Is that surprising? I bake all of the time! Just a few of the MANY different flavorings that I use were sitting in my kitchen. I know! I should put this stuff away, but what is the point! I am just going to pull them all out again.

Her best friend


Today I have chosen a really sweet photo as my 356. Amber has had this "Nunny" since before she was born. She is 8 and still can't sleep without it. Nunny has been to every amusement park, water park, sleepover and long trip that the family has ever taken. Please disregard her Nunny Pattern Baldness... it was all out of love.

A fork is a fork of course....


Day 3 of MY 356... What can I say.... inspiration can lead in many different directions. Or maybe I was just hungry.

My first photo contest!


Here is my Valentine entry on The Paper Mama... I call it "Dear Hubby...."

Why don't you dance.....


Have you ever seen a ballerina on the tip top of their toes? The beauty and the grace involved is fascinating. It looks so easy, yet you know it isn't. The turns, the spins, the balance! All in a little pink shoe....

My first challenge..... Just a photo


Isn't she sweet? So innocent looking..... but behind those innocent eyes you will see the mind of a teenage cat! She climbs the walls (literally), terrorizes the dog (and other household pets) and begs to be fed constantly! She it Kitten.... the cat.

In the beginning......

Why not! That is what I asked myself when I saw that photog friends were posting a photo a day. I told myself.... "you can do this too, Jennifer. Challenges are a part of life, right?" So I am going to do it. Challenge myself to do something with a hobby that I love. Photography! I think I can do it, right? I mean how hard can it be to take a picture a day (just one right? Not 50 to chose one from...) Edit that photo (after deciding from the 50 taken which 25 are good enough to edit), and post just one (chosen from the fabulous 25 that I edited) to share with the world! Easy right? Hmmm we shall see. So I begin... ENJOY!
