About Me

My photo
I'm Andrea. I'm a wife, mother, full-time computer software developer who seems to never have enough time to do everything I want to do. I married my high school sweetheart, who also happens to be my best friend. I love photography and am a total "mommarazzi" to my son Dillon. I grew up in the South, so I have always been loved, and also love others, with food. So my idea of a good time, is getting together with family and friends, eating some great food, and documenting the whole thing with my camera. So, "food, family, and photos" pretty much sums it up!

I Heart Faces - Winter Wonderland

Two posts in one day?? What's going on here? Ok, so saw that I Heart Faces is running a photo contest with the theme "Winter Wonderland" so I wanted to submit a photo for that.

We had 6" of snow last weekend here in SC and we had a great time playing in it with our neighbors. Here's one of my favorite photos from our outdoor adventures!


MCP Actions Blog - Project 52, Week 3

Ok, I have my week 3 entry ready for the MCP Actions Project 52. The theme this week is "shades of gray". The adorable twins next door to us had their second birthday party on Saturday, so I used a couple pictures of Dillon and the cupcakes for my picture this week. I used the B&W Beauty and Boost actions from the Pioneer Woman and a Web Diptych action from the Coffeeshop blog.

Week 3 - Theme: Shades of Gray

MCP Actions Blog - Project 52

Ok, so I'm going to try and keep up with Project 52 from the MCP Actions blog. You can see the details (and join in, if you're interested) here: MCP will be offering up themes for the photos each week, but really any photo is fine. I'm running a little behind (shocker, right?), so I'm starting out with posting my entries for the first 2 weeks at the same time. I'm hoping this will also help me update my blog on a regular basis, since I'll be posting my weekly photos in the MCP Project 52 flickr group and also on here.

So, here it goes!

Week 1 - Theme: Something around the house

Week 2 - Theme: Illustrate a song

I used some free textures from the following sites to process my photos:
