It was a quick trip. Read More ...

Yesterday, the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks took on the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX in Glendale, Arizona.  In case you're the one person who didn't watch the game or tune in just for the commercials, the New England Patriots are the new Super Bowl Champions.  The end of the Super Bowl means the end of football season.  My team's season pretty much sucked so I cannot say that I am sad to see this season come to an end.   With football season over and so many TV hours free, I started thinking of what shows I am excited about that will be starting soon or in the next couple of months.

This week's prompt for Project 52 is "Guilty Pleasure."  I actually took this photo several weeks ago when I decided to do a post about the magazines that I read, but once I looked over the list of Project 52 photography prompts, I decided to save it for this week.   So, I love magazines.  Over the years I've had subscriptions to a lot of different magazines.  The bad part is that these days they seem to pile up and before I know it, I have 3 months of unread magazines.  But that is changing.  This year I vowed to stay on top of reading my magazines, which means I'm Read More ...
