Ellen & Justine in Seattle
I love visiting my home state, not only because of my parents and siblings and in-laws, but because I get the chance to see my niece and nephew. And, while I know my nephew would never agree to “glamour shots” (even though he has a great smile), I did talk my 14 year old niece and her friend into posing for me. This gave me a chance to play with some special effects, including removing braces in Photoshop just for fun. And spending time with them (even though we didn’t have time to go bowling this trip!) also made me realize once again how blessed I am.
