About Me

My photo
I am usually typing on a computer most of the day, but today I am trying my hand at a new project: My 2011 365-Day Photo Journey. I gained a love for photography when I was required to take a fine arts class for college--I chose photography. The course required a lot of work--Professor Loehr saw to that--but it opened my eyes to a new world. It's been many years since I took that class and I don't know how much I actually remember, but following Laura Delagal's 365 Photo Journey and watching my niece's love for taking pictures has peeked my interested in photography again. Although I don't have a professional camera, I did receive a really nice Sony digital (point-and-shoot) camera from my sweetie for Christmas this year. Going through some difficult times in my life, I thought that undertaking my own 365-day photo journey might be a way to relieve a little stress and have some fun with my new toy. Through this journey I will capture some of life's joy and its pain, but I will also be able to refocus the lens of my life on the many wonderful things that God has created. Well, here goes. Wish me luck!

Day 27 - 1/27/2011

Mardi Gras King Cake

Baby on the King Cake (before we hid the baby)

Alex & Joan - the birthday boy & girl

Margo got the piece of cake with the baby in it.
Today we celebrated two birthdays.  Alex's and Joan's birthdays were actually earlier in the month, but my co-workers decided to wait to celebrate their birthdays until today because I was out for a week with my mother.  It has been our tradition over the past couple of years to celebrate the January birthdays with a Mardi Gras King Cake.  We let one person hide the baby so that no one else in the office knows where the baby is hidden.  The one who gets the slice of cake with the baby has to buy the next King Cake.  This time Margo got that piece of cake.  Okay, Margo, you get to bring in the next King Cake.  Can't wait!  Want a piece?
