So I'm making a bit of a leap

Urged on by supportive pressure from friends and family, and inspired by some awesome (i mean awesome) new photo equipment, I'm starting a little business. You can check out the link by clicking here

I'm starting out very small, but my hopes are very high. I really love taking pictures, and appreciate the technique and time that it takes to turn memories into art.

Check it out, and I hope you enjoy it!

10 Travel Tips

Here are 10 things I learned on my first cruise (and trip to Mexico).

(1). Cruise lines fool people into thinking they can get you on the ship quickly. It's called "Embarkation". However, what really happens is that you wait in a series of long hallways (all painted to look like the entrance to the ship). Every corner producing a multitude of "awww man" from everyone you're going to be bunking with for the next week.

(2). If you have babies/strollers/luggage.. etc. with wheels, kindly watch where you are rolling them when the lines move, or do not move.

(3). Once on the ship, everyone is happy and excited and there's a multitude of drunk people within the first two hours. The multitude of drunk people only increases throughout the week, making for very funny entertainment for the sober people.

(4). If someone is giving a lecture on how to form lines,or put on life vests, in the event of a tidal wave, or pirate hijacking, and they blow the whistle that is attached to the lifejackets you are all wearing, expect about 10 minutes of whistle blowing from previously mentioned misbehaving drunk people.

(5). Food is good on a ship. Very good, and you can have dessert at every meal.

(6) By the second day of the cruise, you can tell who is wearing sunscreen and who isn't. The formal night dinner served lobsters in more way than one.

(7). You quickly learn who would win in survival of the fittest. When your navigation skills are lacking, everyone knows it. Those are some small hallways to try and make a u turn in.

(8). Doing the "King of the world" on the front of the ship is actually dorky. But more people do it than you would think. (Sorry Baxter)

(9). When getting off the ship at any port, prepare to take a photo with someone dressed up in native dress, holding a plastic knife to your throat. Makes for good keepsakes.

(10). The ocean is big. Okay, kidding. Don't look too closely for whales in the Gulf of Mexico...It'll be very disappointing for you. Oh, here's another ocean one. While snorkeling, do not attempt to look behind your feet.

We had a fabulous time. Verrry relaxing and refreshing.

How's your summer been?

More pictures (because I can)

Tiny umbrellas

More to come later, but I just wanted to let everyone know that we're home and we had a blast! 5 days of sun and sea, and quiet relaxation. I'm too exhausted to post much more, but it was sooo delightful I just wanted to share. Ta Ta.
