{Blog Makeover}

It's been about 3 years, so I figured I was due for a blog overhaul.  I have been wanting to re-do it for awhile..especially so I could post larger pictures.  Anyhow...take a look.  It was painful, but I like it much better now :-)

RyRy at the McDonald's playground for the first time yesterday!

My kids snuggled up for movie night last night.

Yeah, the posting bigger pictures is great. My mom pointed out to me that every blog she's seen printed out in blog books and such has really small pictures. That was a little discouraging to me seeing as I sort of do it wanting to avoid scrapbooking. How did you get the pictures bigger?

Wow! This is serious. You've done an amazing job. You can really tell how awesome your photos are in that large size!! One thing to check of your list for '10.

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion pictures...it is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?
