Week 8- I♥Faces Photo Challenge- "Hands-On Fun"

I'm always amazed at my mom's hands. Her hands are soft and delicate despite years of hard work. Over the years she has done so much with them for us. I think back of when we lived in Mexico and she would wash all of our clothes by hand. She has made so much food from scratch, tortillas, tamales, gorditas, soups, all that cutting, and mixing, and kneading. When we were babies she knitted our clothes, little hats, dresses, as we got older she had to sew rips, let clothes in or sometimes out.. Those hands have been caring in times when we were ill, checking our foreheads for a fever, wiping tears when we didn't feel good, giving hugs. And even when didn't like it, it was probably for our best, but those hands have taught us discipline :) We probably deserved to get our butts spanked! Now that she's a grandma she works extra hard so she can get her work done in 3 days and watch Adrian for 2! She is caring for him as much as she has cared for us. She is talented and makes the most beautiful knitted/ crocheted hats and scarves. I LOVE my mom! and I think this picture shows how delicate she really is!

I ♥ Faces Fix it Friday!

Every Friday I♥Faces puts up a picture that they want you to play with. The point is to get people to participate in sharing their editing process. It's really fun, and a good way to learn photoshop better!

This is my edit. I adjusted the curves a little bit, brightened up her eyes, ran Totally Rad's Dirty Lovin' action and cropped...Voila!

Week 5: I ♥ faces Photo Challange "Places I love"

This week's challenge is to post photos of places we love, we find romantic, etc... (oh yeah Valentines is almost here huh?) I decided to post a few pictures I took during our honeymoon. We went to Destin, Florida. It was almost 5 years ago!! Adrian was just a twinkle in our eyes :) Anyways, that week was very romantic, we were newlyweds :) Still caught up in all the wedding bliss, didn't have a care in the world! I remember feeling so happy, so independent, so in love. I have to say that I still feel that way. I am so thankful for everything that John and I have. I love my life with him. Since the beginning of our marriage, sunsets have had a special place in my heart. When I think back to our honeymoon I remember these beautiful sunsets, I also love them because one day a few years ago John told me he looked forward to seeing many sunsets with me, so every time I see a pretty one I think of him and smile, or if he is with me, we stop to admire their beauty and in my mind I can picture us doing that for the rest of our lives.
