Photo Contest

I decided to submit this photo for the contest.  It was not an easy decision.  It was between this one and something completely different, a flowering tree, with the sun shining in it.  But, in the end I wanted a photo that was different from the others.  Most of the photos are close ups of one flower or a bunch of flowers from a side view.  All gorgeous and colorful.  We shall see.

Too Much To Do!

I am finding it increasingly difficult to get done what I want!  I have so much to post, but between getting baby’s birthday party, a bridal shower and an anniversary party planned, trying to find time to apply to jobs, cleaning up after baby, making dinner, running errands and working, I am spread thin!

I am excited to share decorations that I’ve made for the birthday party.  Unfortunately, my landlord is working near the computer, where I need to upload some new photos.  Ahh!

On another note, Memorial Day weekend was wonderful.  Lots of quality time with the family: parks, beach, grilling, eating outside, meeting up with friends, breaking out the new baby pool.  I have decided I could live anywhere and have a great life as long as I have my two guys : )

Photo Contest and a Workshop

I’m very excited!  I am doing two things to work towards my goal of getting more experience in this photography thing.  Today I took Rowan to the Botanic Gardens, it turned out to be a gorgeous day.  They are having a spring photo contest so I took a bunch of photos, in addition to some for my sister who is requesting some wall art.  I can’t decide.  Here are a few (I have a thing for black and white):

Regarding the photo workshop, my sister sent me a Groupon for a 3 hour workshop at the Chicago Photography Academy.  I’m very excited, hopefully, it won’t be too basic and I will learn something!
