I Love My Job

I am so blessed to spend my days doing what I love. Yesterday I visited the UAB Women and Infant's Center to photograph two very special boys. These little guys have made incredible progress, and we're hoping they will go home in just a few weeks. Meanwhile, Mom and Dad spend a lot of time with them.

Birmingham Rouge - Dr. Pepper!


I thought I'd continue the Birmingham Rouge theme as I'm doing the same on my Paris Through My Lens blog this week. Today, we return to Blackjack Stables and Farms. LOVE this old Dr. Pepper drink cooler. Fun Fact: Dr. Pepper originated in 1885 in Plano, Texas but Birmingham also had a Dr. Pepper Syrup Co.  Every Saturday, the Pepper Place Market is held in the parking lots around that historic building.

Through The Screen Door


"Shut the screen door, you'll let the flies in!"

I heard that a million times growing up in the South. This is a view from Lake Martin, just south of Birmingham. Families all over are getting in their last beach/lake trips in before schools start next week. Too soon!

Birmingham Rouge - Feeling Cranky??


If you are my age, you knew immediately what this is. For the younger set, it's a hand crank ice crusher. My grandmother had one and always crushed the ice for our Cokes ( Coca Colas from a bottle). For memorabilia and much more, shop What's on Second that has relocated to First Avenue. You can't make that up. Who's on First? You know the rest.
