REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Random 5 Friday

It's Friday...again!   When I taught school, I was well aware of what day it was, but not so much anymore!  I tend to "lose" days now and then, too.   But it's Friday and it's time for Nancy's Random 5 Friday. (She has the funniest-looking cardinal peeking around a feeder.)


1. We had a wedding in our family and we now have a beautiful daughter-in-law.  (I'm the only one who isn't smiling in this photo....and I have no idea why. My face was twitching from smiling that day.) Those are our two sons standing on either side of my husband and me, but they aren't really that much taller than we are--except the tall one IS about 6'3".

2. I DID finish the 125 thank-you cards for the newlyweds, complete with stamping, diecuts, and washi tape.

3. I DID find something to wear, a week before the big day, as you can see in the photo.

4. This summer's heat is wearing on me, even though I love summer weather.  We're hot and dry and dry and hot.

5. I've started walking outside again, but am having to experiment with different lifts in my right shoe--the side of my hip replacement two years ago that left me with one leg shorter than the other.

Gorgeous photo, sometimes there is one random person that adjusts their face and the camera clicks and there you have it, one unsmiling person but that makes you unique hey.
Cant wait to see the cards you made. I still have to make mine for my daughters 21st

Congratulations, and you have a beautiful photo of your families! I'm shopping (online only so far) for a dress for my daughter's wedding. I have about 6 more months :)

I love everything you do!!! Just a note about comfy shoes. I recently bought 2 pairs of Go Walks from Famous Footwear. They are absolutely the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. I don't know how they would work with a lift, but why don't you give it a try.
