OT: Vacation Photos

I have been so dang busy since I got back from vacation!  I’m glad to finally have the time to share my vacation photos with you.  To entice you to go look at them, here’s one of The Bellagio’s famous fountain show of the Las Vegas strip at night. Isn’t that pretty?  Want to see […]

OT: Dear Dad

Dear Dad, It’s me, Jenn!  Today would have been your 60th birthday.  Life has been good down here and we miss you a lot.  You’ve been gone almost eight years after a battle with cancer.  There have been so many sci-fi movies we didn’t get to see in the theater, so many hockey games we […]

OT: Jenn, the Instagram Addict

I’ve sunk to a new low.  I’ve been having fun with Instagram. I’m not really taking photos of food (though I do every now and then, I’ll admit), or using faux filters to make my photos look old (I have actual cameras for that), but rather for an iPhone phoneography class being offered by Photojojo.  […]
