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 202 - July 21, 2011

Mother and her hairdresser Darnell
Tomorrow, July 22nd, we will celebrate mother's 82nd birthday.  Since she has not been getting a really good hairdo since she has been at the nursing home, I called her hairdresser, Darnell, and asked her if she would go to the nursing home to fix mother's hair.  She agreed to do so, and you can see the results.  Mother's hair looked fabulous, and when Darnell left, mother had a big smile on her face.

I'll bet you haven't seen her looking that this in a while?  I know I haven't, and that do was well worth it!  Thanks, Darnell!  My momma looked and felt pretty!!!


  1. What a sweet thing to do for your Momma!! Happy birthday to her!

  2. A new hairstyle can do wonders! I bet she feels wonderful with it!

  3. I think you capture the reality of life exceptionally well.
