#NaPhoPoMo 2013 Last Day: Look for the light

#Naphopomo is officially over and although I started a little late I'm proud of myself for posting 27 straight days.

#NaPhoPoMo 2013 Day 26: Our Christmas tree

  Our mini Christmas tree is up! I'm not usually a Christmas kind of person but I'm really excited this year because is Gael's first.

#NaPhoPoMo 2013 Day 25: 10 months

It is hard to believe today he is 10 months, just 2 months shy away from being 1 year. I remember the days when I could take a photo with that zebra to show his growth from month to month.

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to take photos at the Neighborhood Centers (NCI) grand opening of their Leonel Castillo Community Center  located near downtown. I hadn't posted any of the photos because I was waiting to give them to NCI. This is one of my favorite photos of the day.  I noticed … Continue reading #NaPhoPoMo 2013 Day 22: Beautiful Green

#NaPhoPoMo 2013 Day 21: A gloomy day

Today was one of those days the weather fits the mood- cold, rainy and gloomy. There have been a few clouds that have made the last few days a bit of a struggle for me.
