I am wiped out. Really. 10 days away from home and then we came home to swimming lessons, laundry, and cleaning the house. Next up we are turning right around and leaving Wednesday afternoon for another 5 days away on our Worldwind Tour of the Southeast. If you have been reading my blog you know we don't do anything easy. Why not add 10 things in 4 different states to our weekend away :) Just kidding - sort of. We are headed to Daytona and then when Matt is able to hang out with us on Saturday we are going to Cape Canaveral because the kids and I haven't been there yet and I have always wanted to go. Next Friday is the last scheduled shuttle launch and I am keeping my fingers crossed that maybe it will be out on the pad. That would be SO cool. Then we will slowly make our way back home and stop somewhere midway so that we can hit Savannah on Sunday and visit our old friend Paula Deen. Ok maybe we will just be visiting her fried chicken and butter cake but I'd like to think that some day I can meet her in one of our random visits to her restaurant. So there it is. Beach, shuttle, fried chicken. 4 states in 5 days. Sounds fun :)

Sweet Shot Day


I used a Lightroom action to process the above shot. I am sort of new to using them so it is still playing around and hoping to get it right. I love Pretty Presets and this particular one is from Laura's Nostalgic Summer Collection. It is called Mello Yellow. I played with it a little bit afterwards and then sized/sharpened for the web. I like it and it really shows how pretty Violet's eyes are.
