Today I turned 44. The picture I have here is of my favorite pie, my birthday pie. It's known as a pink lemonade pie, a green bean pie, a grasshopper pie, but I call it delicious. For as long as I can remember I've had this pie for my birthday instead of birthday cake. I love it. My Mom use to make them for me and then Ginger took the mantel and began making them for me. Some of you may get a chuckle at the big votive candle in the middle. Ginger was going to get 44 candles and put them on the pie but logisitics, possible burns, wax, and a smoke detector going off dictated using a big votive. Another tradition added?
I have to say that my Mom gave me perhaps one of the greatest compliments a novice photographer could get. She stated: "I love your still photographs like the boots and your necklace..something about how powerful the images come across." Mom, your the best. You are such an encourager. Thank you so much. I come from a family of artists, that is for sure!
