About Me

An avid people & pet photographer, this blog is an easier way to share stories and photos with family and friends that are scattered across the globe. I'm a blonde who finally went back to her natural color after years of being a redhead. I'm in love with photography, reading, movies, live music, history and my Italian Greyhound Dante. Born in Norway, I've been living in SoCal since I was five. {Photo by Nancy Orozco}

26? Are You Sure?

Whoa. Today is my birthday, and I've got that mixed feeling of "can't believe it's been a year!" with "wow that was so long ago!" Things in my life are a hundred times better than they were this time last year, and while I'm sure I'll always have things I want to improve, I'm still proud of how far I've come.

On Sunday I had an awesome dinner surrounded by my closest friends at our favorite restaurant, Honda Ya, followed by some time at Disneyland. It was a great night! We all stuffed ourselves beyond belief, and then walked it off at the park. :) Tomorrow night I'll be celebrating with the family, I can't wait for mom's homemade beer battered shrimp and marsipan torte for dessert! Then Thursday night Nikki and I hit the road for a weekend trip to Vegas, I'm so excited to have some real time off I can hardly stand it. She's the best to travel with and I know we'll have a great time!

Thanks to all who have put up with my antics and encouraged me and listened to my whining this past year - I love you all more than I can say!

I'm still laughing about Katie's eating pants!

You've done fabulous Trude, don't be so hard on yourself and you're the last person I would think of as a whiner.

I think you made lemon pie with your lemons and I made some lemonade so let's picnic soon. ;)
