well, no one guessed all three things right, but seriously most of you were SO close! five of you got two of the three right so i’m calling it a 5-way tie! (if i don’t have your address already, pmail me and i’ll box up a crazy fun box of goodies for you!!) and thanks for guessing everyone! that was so fun!!
and here is my ALL time favorite photo EVER! yep, i realize it’s a little grainy. that’s due to the fact that i had an inexpensive camera at the time (16 years ago) and i wasn’t a scrapbooker so i didn’t think too much of needing a better camera. this picture isn’t about the quality or clearness of the photo, it’s about the subjects of the photo and what it stirs up within me every single time i look at it. these precious little faces were my life. it was taken during a difficult private personal battle i was having within myself and these 2 little faces were my reason to wake up in the morning. these 2 little faces brought me joy and unconditional love, were the subject of me allowing myself to give them unconditional love, and they were the reason i lived part of my days rising above my private personal battle. i knew in my gut there was hope. these 2 little faces were the reason i fought that battle to win; not winning the battle was not an option….because of these 2 little faces. besides the deep meaning behind the photo, there’s also the simple fact that they’re so darn adorable and i was able to capture their true personalities in their faces when i snapped this photo. so darn cute! my 2 boys, dan and dave at the ages of 3 and 6 and i have it displayed in my family room.
i got a sassy new haircut yesterday. (shown below in it’s casual mode with the little clippy doo-hickey in it). don’t look too close or you will clearly see that i desperately am needing the ole’ highlights touched up. the color looks a bit drab at the moment. the highlights are scheduled for next week since my hairdresser didn’t have time to do it this week. i couldn’t wait til next week for a cut. i was about ready to take the scissors to my own head if i couldn’t get into my hairdresser. (who i really love by the way) that big black monster i’m standing behind is my new NIKON D80 that i got for Christmas. and yes, i know the photo is a little blurry. let’s just say i’m still on the learning curve of learning how to actually use this monster. i absolutely love it but still have so so much to learn.
have a great weekend everybody! i’m off to get a few hours shut eye before traveling to chicago for the weekend. i hope the snow storm stays away so we can go without weather issues! more on my fun weekend trip when i get back!
