Hi everyone, GUESS WHAT ~~~~~ It's my one year anniversary since joining FT, congratulations to me, woo hoo!

Here we have the "new smile" being shown off with my baby boyee who just turned 30, my beautiful son, Timujiin, commonly referred to as Tim. (I was 10 when he was born, hahahahaha.) He's one of the few people who can make a 5'10" girl feel short, since he's 6'6".

Someone took this photograph of us inbetween dancing our a$$es off, nothing like an old lady who doesn't mind being stared at to guarantee fun on the dance floor, and I do love to dance.

I stopped by PicMonkey just to get a frame, then saw all the features and editing effects, diving in immediately to play. Here you can see a little bit of everything: Cross Process, Boost, Frost, HDR, Warhol, Focal Soften, Fancy Focus, Curves, Burn, and Clone. (somehow the bottom left, where Tim's bottle kinds swoops on the neck, that's a Clone ?!?!) And how do you like that big ole kiss on his cheek!!

I love FT, and the people I've met, and the opportunities for friendships since joining, and especially the way I see my life in frames now, Picture Frames! I want you all to know, dear international friends, that my recent lack of presence here is only due to an overload of Spontaneity and Sporadic-ness. (is that a word) It's harder to sit still, and harder to "play" at work, (which I am doing now, true confession) and harder to keep up with the lovely and interesting photos being posted here by my friends. I'm somewhat of a slacker, what can I say ;o(

Also, three weeks from today, on August 31st, The Blue Moon, I will be arrived into Shannon Airport in Ireland to finally meet a dear friend from FT, Mr. Peter O'Sullivan, who has agreed to take me on as a house guest so I can see the world, the world I've dreamed about all my life, and now in my old age, look out dear world, for three weeks I'm a bona fide Photographer AND Traveler.

I shall endeavor to keep a travel log, but since I'm struggling with Sporadicality (maybe that's a word?) I shan't make any promises I know I'll probably only sporadically keep (I think that's the right word now). Rest assured I visit FT regularly, though I'm not always logged in therefore unable to make comments. (see reference above to "slacker.")

Thank you thank you everyone, all my wonderful friends, for your encouragement and support and expertise and advice and criticism and teasing and laughing and playing for this last year. It means a lot, the connections we have are very special to me, as you know, and you do know. It's truly opened my eyes to the world, and I LOVE IT.

Cheerios from Stephie in the States, soon to be Stephie in Europe!!! eeeeeeeeee ~~ flying over the ocean.... in a long metal tube..... all by my self.....
eeeeeeeeee ~~ terrified and excited, happy and thrilled ;o)))))

Great editing, and a very nice picture to start with!
Are you going back to your roots in Ireland? Have a fantastic time anyway!

'Recurring in scattered and irregular or unpredictable instances' the meaning of 'sporadicness' (courtesy of WordWeb:) so that about fits the bill I think!
Nice to see you and your son having a good time...and I'm sure Ireland will welcome you with open arms......I hope you have an absolute blast, and I admire your get-up-and-go attitude!! Bon Voyage and do keep posting whilst your are in Europe:)))

I missed this when you posted this, as I was just about leaving on a trip at the time.
I am back now, but you have left for Ireland and at this moment are no doubt exploring that beautiful part of the world.
I hope that you have a fabulous time Steph and will look forward to the photo's.
Of course, congratulations on your one year FT anniversary. It is hard to believe that one year has gone by since we first met here....and I remember it well:):):)

Where are you at now Steph, travelling is such a blast isn't it? Haven't heard from you in a while...I became a Dad in July, how scary is that?
