Constant companions

I love my pups, Lucas & Simon! They are the perfect, lazy, cuddle bugs/personal heaters. I've been sick for the past few days and today as I lie in bed, drugged up and in my pajamas, they're just lying with me keeping me warm. If I'm in bed, they are too. When I get up to refill my juice, change laundry or whatever, Simon always gets up to follow me around like a little shadow. Lucas however is the most lazy. He'll stay in bed under the covers unless I whistle for him. But it so nice to crawl into a cozy bed because his body heat has it all warmed up for me! No more cold sheets! Plus they don't care if I'm coughing, haven't showered yet, covered in tissues or tossing the blankets on and off as my temperature changes. They just love me no matter what! Even sicky they put a smile on my face!

My Lucas (he was being camera shy)

And my ADD child, Simon (its so hard to get a picture of him awake,
because he is ALWAYS moving!!)

They are too cute. Love my boys!


365 photo challenge

I got this idea from my Aunt Amie in AZ, I think earlier this year or last year some time. She (and some of her family) participated in a challenge, taking a picture everyday - for 365 days - a whole year. Well as far as I know, none of them finished all 365 days... I mean, come one, that's quite a challenge. But...I think I'm up for it. I'll be snapping pictures all the time anyways.

So here is my vow: Starting January 1, 2011 I will be starting my 365 day - photo challenge. Taking a picture of "something" and posting about it every day for a whole year. (Phew! Sounds difficult...) Whether I'm taking a "semi-pro" photo with my Rebel, a simple snap shot with my point-n-shoot, or a quick pic with my cell phone camera, I will do it!

I discover new things each day, I meet incredible people and I find beauty anywhere I can. I just KNOW there is something worth snapping every single day.

My new year's resolution. Starting this blog and starting my photo challenge.

Wish me luck - and keep coming back to see my latest shots!
