Surprise!

I remember when I was younger and couldn’t wait to check the mail when I got home from school. About the only time I look forward to checking the mail now is if I’m expecting a package.  Roman couldn’t wait today, he was so excited! Running there with the balloons made it even better. It reminds me to enjoy the simple things in life, like running to the mailbox with balloons.

This picture also makes me want to take a Photoshop class. I would have liked to experiment with the colors a little. Maybe muted everything but the balloons. Hopefully the college will offer it in January.

The Beginning of the End

Today was my 29th birthday and the beginning to the end of my 20’s.  Birthdays have a different meaning now that I have a child. I barely realized it was my birthday and didn’t put a lot of weight on it. The real joy to me now in all my wisdom, is that I am able to spend it with my family and the ones I love. I enjoy sharing my gifts and candles with everyone now, opposed to when I was 9, and that wouldn’t have been so cool. I truly am blessed.
