2015 in Review

If you follow me on Facebook, you'll understand why I haven't posted anything since PhD classes began in August. Here's a photo recap of things that happened when I wasn't reading, writing, studying, or teaching:

I learned a new poetry form: Tanka. It's related to Haiku, which I also developed a knack for composing.

Always time for photography - especially now that smart phone cameras are so improved.

Some time with my favorite model and Photoshop Elements

The Gulf

The sea is my happy place.

Had some time for fun art

A Connected Learning MOOC (massive open online course) inspired lots of art and poetry

Another Tanka proving that beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Favorite place in the world with my favorite guy.
Sappy and cheesy - that's us.
Home school exploration with Caroline and Abigail. 

It was a long hike!

Corinne Loomis, BSN, RN
Mimi handed down HER nurses cap to Corinne

Ole Miss (HYDR)

Kennesaw State University has a new football program and a marching band.
Cutest Marching Owl
A (really short) visit with brother Mike and SIL Tomi. So much fun.

Hawks keep the rodent population under control. This one had a full meal as I watched.
My Thursday girls - since January 2007

Madalena Anne Cristancho. Born 5 weeks early on October 11

Carrie had a form of pre-eclampsia that kept her from her baby girl for 36 hours. This was their first family visit.



Corinne and Caty Mae were there when Maddie went home from the hospital after 13 long days
