22. My Favoritemy fave

24. Just Becausejust becauseBecause it is a cool statue outside a gallery in Santa Fe.

25. Hopes and DreamshopesThis happens to be a picture I took at Peter Piper Pizza at my nephew’s birthday party and when I was trying to figure out what to use for this idea, I noticed the numbers on the wheel. And added the arrow. I am living my 40th year and while I have dreams bigger than I would like to mention out loud (send a man my way) my word for the year is Adventure. To me that doesn’t mean I have to go seek craziness around every bend. I don’t think I will get up on that horse. Like Walter Mitty, but again not to the extent of climbing the Himalayas. Take the adventure when it arises. So far I have been trying new recipes. I am loving Pinterest. And photographing almost all of it. Good or bad. I also made myself a list of 40 photographs I will challenge myself with to be completed by my birthday. Play along if you like and keep me posted if you come along on the adventure.40th bday challenge
