I just love this picture I took of my niece Caroline and her boyfriend Rafael. I blurred out the background and focused on them. They were all smiles and cute cuddles. The composition was good, the light was good on their faces. I was so proud of myself and then I noticed a huge glaring flaw. I was in the picture! I saw my reflection in Caroline’s sunglasses. Dang it! I tried to edit myself out but my app didn’t do a very good job of that, so I left it in the picture. It would have been so easy to have her take off the glasses. Lesson learned. Look at reflective surfaces and make sure you aren’t in the picture. Unless that’s what you’re going for.

Our father was in the Air Force, so growing up we traveled (and moved) quite a bit. We lived in California and New York, everywhere in between, and a short stint overseas. Even as adults we have found ourselves moving around, a lot. Grandma Laney called it the "Laney wanderlust". Marta and her family probably won't be moving for awhile, work and all. But her husband is a pilot so she can continue to indulge her wanderlust frequently. OraLynn and her husband are empty nesters so they are taking a sabbatical for a year and moved to Mexico to help out some family. Between the two of them, they have seen quite a bit of this amazing world. But it's never enough, so keep checking the blog for their new adventures. Marta has two little boys ages 4 and 6 so she has first hand experience in traveling with little ones. OraLynn's son is 20 and out on his own. She's currently in Mexico helping take care of her husband's elderly parents so she has experience in traveling with the elderly, teens, and couples travel. View all posts by travelinsanityblog
