Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

I want another vacation

Nothing much more to say than that, I guess.

Ok, so maybe there is a lot more to say but the problem is that I can't seem to find the words. A lot has transpired over the course of this year and I'm still trying to find my way through it all. Life is certainly confusing at times and curve balls thrown our way seem to keep smacking us in the face. Supposedly these things happen to teach us a lesson and make us "wise". Woo-ha. Right now I think I prefer stupidity. At least ignorance is bliss. Or so I hear.

But I'm supposed to be cheery and positive, so I'm trying to see the wine glass as half full. I'm slowing going through some of the photos from our recent excursions. Here are a few special ones from Memorial weekend. The beach was glorious as the surf danced against the shore. Later that day as the sun was setting on the bay in Cape Cod, life was calm, warm, sweet, and for a moment all our worries were forgotten. It was a lovely escape.

gosh Lori - your photos are incredible. Someone told me some things happen to teach you what's important, etc, etc. I say I already knew what was important. I already had my priorities in line. Some of us don't need this lesson, right?!

I'm reading a book that I *think* is going to help. I'll pass it on.
