Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder

Yea I had no idea what to title it...but I do know that's a true statement!! :)

OHHH.
MYY.
GOSHHH.

I'm soo happy to be back!!! You have no idea the torture I went through not being able to upload a picture or comment or browse....it was horrible!!!
(okay maybe that's an exaggeration :) but really...I did miss my 365 Family!!)

So I'm just glad I can finally get on the computer again...let's hope that never happens again. Right now I am trying to catch up on all the photos and comments I missed. If I don't reply to something nice you've said..just realize I've seen it and I really appreciate it :D

My God everyone seems happy to have you back! I must have scrolled through 200 comments to get here! Truth be told, I'm absent so much now, I didn't realize you were away, too! I feel guilty if I say I'm so sad to miss 365 as much as I have lately because I'm having a great time with the people up here!

That said, your picture is a stunner! Egad and WOW! Definitely a Fave! And I loved your artwork that Mrs Smith posted...what a talent you are! I know you worry a little about your future, but it looks sunny-bright from where I'm standing!
posted May 17th, 2010  
Glad you're back, Lauren!

Nice processing. came out well.

Welcome back i know how you felt as i was without mine for quite some time had it in for repair the fellow worked off and on for 2 and 1/2 days on it. don't want to know what all he had to do to get it going again. only wanted to know how much it would cost me when i picked it up. to my surprise he didn't wanted any money but i insisted on paying him so he charged me believe it not just $80.00 dollars why good question. well you should know that my hubby is a good cook and does almost all of our cooking every day. so he was bragging to Jason about it and the next time he went there he took at least 6 different specialties for him to taste (i mean a container full each) so they became sort of friends and Jason will not except money for his repairs everything else we purchase of course we pay for but always get great deals. i found it time consuming to go back and catch up on all the pictures that have been uploaded and of course the reading of the captions take time too.
Your self-shot is really nice, beautiful eyes you have and i see beauty in and all around you.
