photoshop play.

I have a new favorite photoshop action. It's called lomo medium. It mimics lomography and I think I'm in LOVE! I used it on both images of Ella. I think its super fun and love the color saturation. I didn't use it on the image of Kaleb, but did use a bunch of other oldies but goodies!

Anyway~ as you can see I'm still working on getting a post up more regularly. I've decided there's just not enough hours in the day... but I haven't given up hope just yet!

it never gets old...

taking pictures of this little girl, never gets old.

she still loves to let me take her picture. she still always wants to see herself on the screen when I'm done. and to me... that never gets old.

I still try to catch those not so "posed" moments... this is what you get when Andrew & Kaleb go riding down the street on their bikes... without her.

as for him... it's rare that he lets me take his picture these days. i guess today (well yesterday) was my lucky day.

On another note, I've been a terrible "blogger" lately... and I'm hoping to work on that. I'm hoping to take & make more time to take pictures. I'm missing it terribly and NEED to get back to making the time... then if all goes well, I'll have more to share.

This huge place in my heart is turning 2!

I can't imagine life without her.
She's one of my blessings that I count twice!
I love her more than words can express.
Happy Birthday "Lala Grace!"

man, i have no idea whether i'm coming or going these days. i've been one horrible blogger that's for sure.

since i really don't even like to post without pictures i'm going to keep this one short.... here's what i've been up to...

i'm currently in house construction hell. basically i'm trying to get a whole bunch of stuff done in not enough time! i guess we are making some progress, it just doesn't seem to be happening quick enough for me... imagine that.

i'm taking a super-cool class at school this quarter. we're doing some alternative processing & printing. it's been really neat, hopefully i'll share some of that stuff once i actually get time to take some pictures, etc.

that's basically all that's been going on around here. work, house & not enough sleep.

oh... and princess lala (as I call her) is turning a great big 2 on monday. I'm sure i'll have pictures to share soon. :)

a weekend at the beach...

Just some quick snapshots from the weekend in LBI. The weather was beautiful & we had a great time.

Kaleb spent a lot of his time searching for shells, but I did manage to get him to give me one quick smile. lucky me!

Today was back to reality... now I MUST focus on the house & getting some things done around there. I'm still hoping to be moved in before Andrew goes back to school.
Sorry it's a quick post... I still have lots of Spain pictures to edit and hopefully post, but I've been super busy & super exhausted all at the same time.

Here are a few pictures from Cordoba. We went to what was originally The Masque and eventually became the Cathedral of Cordoba. This Cathedral was particularly interesting because many of the original features from the masque still were present in the Cathedral.

I was also trying to post some pictures from Salamanca, but my internet connection was not cooperating :(
This morning we are heading to Toledo for the afternoon. It's only about an hour from Madrid. We're touring another Cathedral & checking out the city as well.
Only 3 more days until I'll be heading home! I'm counting down the days until I see Andrew, Kaleb, Ella and the rest of my family! I miss them like crazy!
Not sure if I'll get to post again before I come home, but maybe on Wednesday. Once I get home I'll post a bunch of pictures, I haven't had much time to edit but I have tons more pictures :)
