37 Things About Me

So, today is my 37th birthday and I'm pretty indifferent about it. I will say that it started off very well with my husband driving 4 hours home from work in Salinas, climbing into bed and being the first person to wish me Happy Birthday. I promptly went back to sleep, but remember being very happy that he was home again where he belongs. I got this idea from Jill over at her blog (see Creativity, Musings & Such in my blog list). I'm still too much of a dufus to figure out how to include a link in my post.
Here are some important things about me to celebrate my 37th year of life:
1. I wish I could make a living as a photographer, but I don't know if I'm good enough
2. My favorite place on the planet is Yosemite
3. My middle name is Lynn, but I dropped it when I got married and now use my maiden name as my middle name
