I’m BAAAACK…Barbados #2

My computer genius husband returned home last night and today he managed to clear my laptop of the virus. HE ROCKS!! So, I’ve returned to post some more pictures from our trip. The first are just a few random photos. The remainder are photos that I took on a photography tour. I had the incredible privilege of shooting one day with Ronnie Carrington. He’s extremely talented and he really “pushed me out of my box.” I can’t wait to work with him again on our next trip! 0020 0021 0022 0023 0024 0025 0026 0027 0028 0029 0030 0031 0033 0034 0035 0036 0037 0038

A Very Bad Day(s)

My laptop is sick. It's been attacked by a virus. And my computer genius husband is out of town. This is a very bad and tragic situation. I'm praying I haven's lost all of the photos I just took in Barbados...along with all my other personal photos. This is bad. And makes for a not-so-great Thursday and Friday.

Hopefully this will all be resolved soon.

Did I mention, I HATE computer viruses?

Barbados (#1)

Several of you have spoken – and I have listened.  You’re wanting to know why it’s taken me so long to  post pictures.  Well, for starters, while I was there I simply didn’t take the time to go through ALL the photos I’d taken.  And then stop long enough to post them.  Then our return was….let’s say….complicated.  We  ended up stuck in Miami for an additional night.  So today has been much more complicated than I initially thought….

Here are a few and there will certainly be more to follow…..

Recently, I was able to meet my dear friend Toi for lunch.  She was in town going to a baby shower so we didn’t waste the opportunity!  Some how during our conversation, she asked if I’d read the Twilight series.  No.  I hadn’t really had any interest.  She insisted that I would need to borrow hers.

When we found out we were going to Barbados, she mailed me the entire series so I could have them to take on the trip.

But I really didn’t think I could get into the whole “vampire” love thing or whatever.  I was planning to take another series I already own, but realized I was missing one.  Anywho.  As we were packing I grabbed the first book….just incase I needed something to read to help me fall asleep on the plane.

I was planning to catch up on my digital scrapbooking most of the flight.  However, the planes were completely full and getting out my computer would take more effort than it was worth.  So, the reading began…..

….and I still haven’t started not one darn scrapbook page.  Toi was oh so right.  The vampire “thing” really goes a bit un-noticed.  I guess we’re just two hopeless romantics at heart.  We’re loving the love story – forgetting its with a dang vampire.

I finished to book within a couple of days.  And was mad.  Mad at myself.  Because I have the whole collection… home.  And I want them NOW.

Michael is going to the dental conference during the day now.  And it’s actually been raining quite a bit.  And I want to read.  About Bella and Edward.

So, I did the most rational thing possible.  I found a book store on the island.  Infact, they had used books.  And, thankfully, they had New Moon.  Just the one I needed.  :)  WOO HOO. 

The reading has continued.  However, knowing they don’t have the third, I need this one to last me until we get home.

Therefore, maybe by the end of the day I’ll have some scrapbook pages to show…

….after one more chapter….
