Wow. I lost my sweet girl dog last week, and just picked up her ashes this morning. I agree, I just want her back. You can read about my sweetheart here, if you wish.

I must admit, I have been a little lax about taking pictures lately. However, the holidays are coming and I am vowing to change my ways. I thought a little camera inspiration would go a long way towards helping me... Continue reading

I stopped blogging, did you notice? Not that I ran out of things to say, but just didn't want to say them. I wanted privacy, a break. I wondered if what I was saying mattered anyway. Turns out it does.... Continue reading
