Photo a Day: Bubbly

Today's word is "bubbly" and I wasn't exactly sure how to tackle this one.  Everything I thought of was pretty cliche so I came up with this and I really like how it turned out!  I just put the strawberry in seltzer water and watched the bubbles go crazy!  It was a lot of fun and super easy.  You can also put a magnifying glass in front of the lens to intensify the effect, which I think I did with this shot.  Go try it out!!

I got bored and started throwing all kinds of things into the seltzer water so enjoy these "bubbly" guys :)

Photo a Day: Knowledge

New Years means something different to everyone.  For some it's a fresh start from the mistakes of years gone by, for others it's just another opportunity to continue achieving their dreams.  Regardless of how you feel, it's a great time to sit and reflect on your life and what you want out of life.  But lets be honest, sometimes that can be a very harsh reality check.  I was just thinking that I have been graduated from college for a year and a half and I still have no idea what to do with myself.  A bit of post-grad depression, if you will.  This New Years, I was feeling a little uninspired and a bit purposeless.  Being the wonderful husband he always is, Brendan gave me a challenge to take a picture every day- based on the word he gives me each day.  So, why not?  I love taking pictures and I want to get better so lets do this.

The word of the day is knowledge.   I just took a pic of the books I've been re-reading and I just love the Great Gatsby's cover.  It's so beautiful.  I love it so much that Brendan got me a t-shirt with the book cover on the front, it's fantastic.

Disneyland 2012

Shout-out to my work who pays for us to go every year! It was a good time, as usual, but even more so because it was the least crowded it has EVER been.  It was awesome, we were just walking on rides for the most part because everyone was at Cars Land (which is pretty neat, btw).  Disneyland to me is overdosing on Mint Juleps and cotton candy.  I did just the thing and it was heavenly.  Till next year!

Over the Hills!!!

So my parents went over the hill this month, and are now 50.  What a bunch of oldies :)  With my dad living in California, we couldn't celebrate with him as much as we'd like to.  I made him a cake when he was in town a couple weeks before, but now it was my mom's turn!  She loves all things French, so I just had a dinner party with our family which was semi-French Country themed.  It was fun, but let me just say, I will never make a Croquembouche ever again.  Hardest trial of my life.  And we like to take awkward family photos, it's whatevs.
