I Clicked It Up a Notch

This is the last month that the blog is going to do their photography contest.  I've only entered once before, which was last month, and the author of the site commented on my photo!  I felt like I had written a letter to a celebrity and they personaly responded! 

On a side note, I was one of those teenage girls who wrote letters to celebrities just hoping for a response.  I wrote to Jonathon Taylor Thomas and he sent me a post card { it wasn't his actual writing, but a photocopied letter in his handwriting}!  I also sent him fishing supplies for his birthday because I had read in a magazine that he liked to fish.  Wonder if he ever got it...   Then I was part of the Hanson fanclub MOE {Middle of Everywhere}.  Oh...those were the days of dreaming I would one day marry a celebrity.  Do girls still dream of this?  When I taught second grade a few years back, I remember one of my students just knew she was going to marry Zac Efron from High School Musical...he would have only been 15 years older than her.  No biggy.

So here is my favorite photo from October.  Sandy had stood up in her crib for the first time.  She was all smiles when I walked in; but of course, I had to go run and grab my camera to take her picture.  I returned to a crying little girl so sad that her mommy had walked away.  I love this picture because you can see the big tear running down her cheek.  A bittersweet memory.
