In all of our glory!

Thanks be to Lisa, my new blogger/best friend, I have entered the photo age! I am so excited about this - you would think I'd won the lottery or something. Not that I gamble or anything...

In the top photo are my two children, Kristiana and Daniel, and the Yorkie that has us jumping through hoops, Mama Maya Mia.

In the bottom photo, that's me in the middle, of course. My two beautiful children, flank me in uptown Charlotte. Two weekends ago, we went out to dinner as a family to celebrate our wedding anniversary. My husband, who regularly refuses to pose in pictures, is behind the camera - per usual.

It was a beautiful night, so The Silvermine Academy - that's the name of our homeschool - decided to go out on an evening field trip. Don't we look happy?!? We are.

Thanks again, Lisa. You are a great teacher!

Hooray for you!!! I have a HUGE smile on my face as I celebrate our victory. Yea for us!

How lovely to see your beautiful face and awesome family! Thanks for sharing. I guess that puts the ball back in my court to post some personal pics, huh?

You've made my day by this little but oh-so-meaningful accomplishment. :-)

Cheering you on,

Lisa, so glad you enjoyed seeing the photos. It was a huge thing for me to finally figure this out; I don't know how much longer it would have taken if I'd had to do it on my own. Thanks again.

Also, I figured out how to add commentary between the pictures. It's fairly easy...

Giovanna, what a wonderful surprise to see your name in my inbox. I do miss your letters and emails. You remain in my thoughts and prayers. Every now and then I go to your blog just to reread your piece on travel and look at the photos of Firenze. When are you going back? I'll be there in October... Looking forward to reestablishing regular contact with you whenever you are able to do so...
