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 36 - 2/5/2011

Dr. Stella, my daughter's OB/GYN
I'm afraid that I caught Noreen's (one of our fellow 365er's) cold (j/k), so even though it was a beautiful sunshiny day, I didn't feel like getting out of the house.  I went to get my hair trimmed and then came back home and slept in the chair most of the day.

The photo above is one that I took yesterday.  I was fortunate to go with my daughter to her OB for her 4-week check up before the baby is born.  It's so sweet to hear my granddaughter's heartbeat and to realize that in 3-4 weeks I will get to hold this precious little one in my arms and kiss her sweet little cheeks.  I really wanted to post one of Dr. Stella touching my daughter's stomach.  It was really so precious and only showed a small amount of tummy, but so far I don't have permission to post that photo.  So, in the meantime, I'll just post the picture of Dr. Stella holding Kelly's file.

You know what my subject matter will be in a few weeks, don't you?
