My 15 minutes....

Generally, I would never post pictures of me and only me, but my friend Viv took these and I wanted to share her talents. Recently she had an essay contest in which women were to submit a story about themselves and the winner would receive a photo shoot. To make it fair, an anonymous third party picked 3 finalists without knowing who the authors of the stories were, and beyond that the public voted. In the end, the three finalists were all treated to a shoot and I was lucky enough to be among the three. First, let me say that Viviana is truly one of the sweetest women I've ever met. As soon as you start talking to her, you can see her gracious spirit and you instantly make a friend. She's also very creative and has a knack for all things artsy, including photography. I love her style and I was so blessed to get to do this shoot. It was such a good time.....

We found ourselves at some local landmarks and I think it worked out nicely. Hubby agrees =)

This shot is one of my favorites. I really felt important doing these pictures. I felt famous, if for only 15 minutes....

I don't have to say much about these pictures really. Her talents shine through and I recommend her to anyone. Please visit her site and take a look at some of her other amazing work. You won't be disappointed. http://heartspunimagery.typepad.com/. Thanks Vivi !!!

You are too generous with your compliments. Won't be hard for your readers to see that YOUR beauty and talents "make" the pictures. Thank you for sharing YOU with me. I have had so much fun getting to know you. The best kind of friend is the kind of friend that expands you and embellishes you by sharing, teaching, and encouraging. You're that kind.

PS....I'm excited about camping this weekend, but sad we won't get to go shopping so plan it for another day and I'm there.
