Going through the photo files

It may come as no surprise that I frequently have my camera with me. It may also come as no surprise that I like to capture random things. (One of the comments I hear most often as I'm snapping away, "You're taking pictures of the food??" Yup. I sure am.)

Snowy Saturday mornings are perfect for going through all the photos I didn't even have time to look at after downloading them to my computer due to December busy-ness. For your amusement, here is a bit of the randomness.

The American Gothic statue is in front of the building that houses my new job!!! Woo Hoo!
And, I wish that I could eat fondue every week. Betwen the fondue party and the fondue at your place last weekend, that was more fondue in a month than I have ever eaten. Why don't we have it more often?!?!?!
