Some randoms.

I've been taking a lot of photos, lately.  That is a good thing.  
Surprisingly, I get more done with gobs of photos to edit that someone paid me for.
It forces me to prioritize.
Time for laundry, cleaning, photo processing, laundry, cooking, laundry.
That last photo is of Jake.
I was not paid to take that one.
In money, anyway.
Maybe with hugs and smiles, but no dollars.
That photo is why I love taking pictures.
If you do it right...you capture the essence of the person.
That photo is sooooo Jake.
Quiet, thoughtful, introspective, sensitive, empathetic.
All right there frozen in a moment.
I can't believe he's going to be 10 in May.
I'm not old enough to have a 10 year old.
Am I?

One a much different note...
my friend Jeanne {above} needs your help.
She is a wife, and mother to two littles.
This past July, Jeanne got diagnosed with breast cancer.
But, she attacked it!
After taking an aggressive approach to fight it, she is now a survivor!
She is a tough nut to crack!
Here's where you can help Jeanne.
She needs votes to become the honorary bat girl for the St.Louis Cardinals.
Her kids would love to see their momma help our home team!
She definitely deserves it!  
Go HERE to vote for Jeanne.
You do not need to be local.
ANYONE can vote!
You don't have to register.
It takes 10 seconds.
For realz.

Incidentally, she is doing the Susan G. Komen 3-day Race for the Cure.
60 miles in 3 days!
Surviving breast cancer AND challenging your body to do 60 miles in 3 days!
See?  Tough!
