Blogging Woes...

It's finally happened - Blogger and I are breaking up.  After months of fighting and cursing and arguing with my blog, I have made the decision to switch over to WordPress.  I apologize for any inconveniece this causes you, but I hope you'll follow me over.  All previous, current and future content will be there so check in often!

Let's Do 52...

Have any of you been participating in a 365 or 52 project?  I'm afraid I can't keep up with 365 - after years of abysmal failure, I've given it up for a more streamlined 52 approach.  So far, I'm doing great, but it is only week 3.  :)

For those of you not familiar, P356 stands for "Project 365" where you take at least one photo each day for an entire year.  And, yes, you may have already figured out that P52 equals "Project 52" - one photo per week.  Now, to be fair, I take a lot more than just one photo per week, but I like having the flexibility of just choosing one to represent my week.  Sometimes it's a personal favorite, sometimes it's from a fun activity or event we participated in, sometimes it's just a random shot.  

I came across a fantastic set of prompts to help encourage creativity in your photography as the days, weeks and months go on - from Paint the Moon.  Take a few minutes to check out her blog and photography business.  Wow.

She's even set up an amazing Flickr group to showcase your shots and share them with other like-minded photographers.  It's for amateurs and professionals alike - so head over and take a peek.  You won't be sorry!!

Ahhh, the Single Life...


Think back to those peaceful days, back when you were single.  For some of you, it wasn't that long ago.  For me...well, it's been about 10 years since I didn't have a hanger-on of some sort.  Did you do anything special with your spare time?  Shopping?  Late night movie marathons?  Early mornings at the coffee shop?

For me, it was people watching.  I used to LOVE to go to the library or local bookstore and pretend to browse, but really I just wanted to scope out the people.  I loved to check out their clothes and hair and wonder where they'd been and where they were headed next.  Or, I'd sit on a bench in the shade at our local college and just relax.  I had a cute little rental house that was only one block from the campus, so it was a perfect afternoon activity to just hang out over there and watch the students scurry by.

These days, those memories are nothing but that...memories.  It was before kids, before I had a husband, and a job, and a mortgage, and a....ugh, let's just stop there.  So, take a second and share with us what your guilty pleasure was (or, if you're lucky, still is).
