Here's our HOUSE!!

We bought a house on Friday! I still can hardly believe it.
Here's a couple of shots of the kitchen...

Merry Christmas!


We had an absolutely GREAT Christmas this year!
Here are couple of shots from Christmas in K-town.



And here's Stella as I try to get her to pose in front of the presents.


This one I couldn't resist posting. Eric is less than impressed.

Stepping Stones


This happens to be one of the rejects from November.

The children at my aunt's church made these stepping stones and now they are in the front lawn amongst the flowers.

Lily


I went to a wedding this summer and took a lot of photos.

This is a flower from one of the arrangements there.

Mushroom


Long time no post..

I thought I'd post some photos I have taken in the past until I get some new stuff.

Here's a mushroom I found growing in my front yard a couple of months ago.

November 30, 2007


I have already posted shots of Stella, Athena, and the foster puppy, Brutus.
So it seems only fair that I also include Aphrodite.

Here she is on the mat in the bathroom, staring at Stella - making sure she doesn't come too close.

So, that's it.
I have successfully taken a photo-a-day for a whole month.
It was really hard some days (I'm sure you could tell when I had an uninspiring day).
I think from now on, I will keep posting photos that I take on this blog, but it won't be every day...

Lots of people have already put up their Christmas lights.

This is a house in my aunt's neighborhood - I really liked the simplicity of the icicle lights.

I have always loved candles...
I love the way they smell,
and I love watching the flame dance.

I dried all of the flowers in my wedding bouquet and put them in a couple of glass jars.

Eric's stepmother already had her Christmas tree up.
I really liked this Santa Gourd.

There was frost on the ground this morning...

I guess you can tell winter is on its way.

This one looks better when you click on it.

I liked the colors of the sky with the moon in the distance.

Trying out the light box I made...

I have really been getting into stamping lately.
Here is one of the Christmas cards I made for this year.

See Spot...

My aunt and uncle are on vacation this week, so I am going by and checking in on their two cats, Spot and Junior.

*On a puppy update: We found Brutus' owner today. I'm really glad he's in his own home again. He's a really sweet puppy, but a little too much for us right now.

This is Brutus, the little puppy that we found on Sunday.

We are fostering him until we find his family or find him a new home.

Isn't he adorable?!?

A kitchen theme, apparently.
Not all that surprising as I spend a lot of my home-time in the kitchen.

Our wedding rings.

It's weird to think we've been married almost 2 and a half years.

Here it is.
Photo one.
In my opinion, a not so bad mirror self-portrait.

A New Day

Tomorrow, November 1, 2007, I will try to take one picture each day for a month. I may not post every day, but I'll take the pictures and post them at least a couple of times a week.

I am gearing up to do this for a whole year. November is just a trial run, so to speak.

I am hoping this will help to improve my photography. Hopefully it will make me see things in a different light.

I know not all of the photos will be great, but I am hoping that a lot of them will be portfolio worthy.

Wish me luck!
