Two more layouts featuring the babies ...

who really aren't babies anymore at all ...

Three New Scrapbook Pages

The beautiful irises mark your entrance to Brevard at the intersection of 276, 64 and 280. They just scream SPRING!!! Next is a layout celebrating the joys of bribing little ones with cookies to get them to sit still then sending them home with mom to deal with :) And lastly is Zack & Kady before heading off to prom at North Henderson High School last Saturday night.

Happy Birthday, Brett!

Hope you have a super day, Brett!

My New Kitchen

Originally uploaded by saturnsvu
So I did it! After 12 years and 5 months in this apartment, my kitchen is no longer also my office. Since everyone in the family has a laptop and Joanna needs a computer so she can go to school some more, we decided to take down the desk in the kitchen. This way we earned about 24 new square feet in our kitchen and we promptly put up this new shelving. I wanted a place to displace my new temp-tations bakeware (which I absolutely love the way it cooks, its easy clean-up and its really good looks.) I also wanted to free up some counter tops and put some of Mama & Daddy's great canning goods on display. I was looking at Baker's Racks but most were only 3 feet wide and would have left almost a foot of unused space. Of course, Frank had bigger ideas (thank goodness.) We went to Lowe's and Home Depot. We got lucky at Lowe's they had a pantry set pre-boxed that fit perfectly in our space. We are going to add one more shelf to the top and Frank was able to turn the old Kimberly Clark mailbox into a book file for all of his old gourmet magazines and turn it on its side and slide it right in at the bottom. Perfect!

12 of 12 May

My 12 favorite pics from the 12th day of May. Met with a bride to be, captured a butterfly, said goodbye to a great friend from work and took some test shots for this year's United Way campaign (got the job, btw!) Pretty big day!

Mother's Day Motorcycle Ride

We rode down to Traveler's Rest and back up through Marietta to Caesars Head and then out to Camp Greenville to take photos of Pretty Place. It was a beautiful day that required some long johns underneath a sweatshirt and jeans but that was okay with me :)

A Moment on Main

LENS, a blog on NYTIMES.com, wanted to create a photo mosaic of "A Moment in Time." The challenge was for everyone to take a picture at the same time on Sunday, May 2. The challenge read: "Where will you be on Sunday, May 2, at 15:00 hours (U.T.C.)? Wherever you are, we hope you'll have a camera — or a camera phone — in hand. And we hope you’ll be taking a picture to send to Lens that will capture this singular instant in whatever way you think would add to a marvelous global mosaic; a Web-built image of one moment in time across the world."

Since there was no one home that day, I decided to go downtown and have my photo represent what Main Street in Hendersonville was like on a Sunday morning. It was quiet and it was starting to rain. I thought I wasn't going to be able to get a good shot but when I got home and uploaded this I was amazed at how well the impending storm was captured. I like this so much I may have to frame it.
