So, as you have probably noticed, pretty much everyone has voted on poll that they would love it if I started a photography blog! I am SOOO glad that you all want to see my pictures! Thanks so much! I will be starting a photography blog, however (yes, there is a however :(... ) it may be a while before that happens because my computer recently stopped working as some of you may know. We took it to the shop a few days ago and guess what! My screen is completely fried. Dead. NON EXISTENT! *sigh* SO. I am going to be looking around for a new computer and until I get a new computer, I will not have a computer on which to create and edit images. :P Just so you know! :D

Michelle (or Mom.. It depends upon if you are me or not. :P) @


BE A GOVERNOR'S PAGE IN RALEIGH! That means that I went to Raleigh and delivered mail for the department I was assigned, I stuffed envelops, looked stuff up on the computer for a few people, etc. If you have questions about this after I am all finished with the post, just ask in a comment, and I will be more than happy to try and answer!

That is a sign outside of the Governor's Mansion telling about it. We (all the other Governor's Pages and I) toured quite a bit during our stay in Raleigh. I really enjoyed going to the Governor's Mansion. It's so pretty!

These are the other girl pages and I. There were four boys, but I didn't get a picture of them all together. :(

This is from the Legislative Building, which was also my secondary building. That means of there was any mail to deliver to the Legislative building, I was the one to do it! :D

This is also from the Legislative building. This is where all the County Representatives meet and discuss laws and all that.

This was my desk where I worked on little projects throughout the week.

I was assigned to the Department of Cultural Resources, which is in the State Library (I was in Heaven! Haha!). This binder is holding all the information of pages past that were assigned to the same department as I was. In it, there was a little bit of personal info (like where they went to school and such) and then after that there was a page where they could write to future pages and give them advice, tell them where all the good places to eat are, give encouragement, blah, blah, blah. :) I really enjoyed reading through that!
So, yeah. That's where I was and I am so sorry for not posting before this! :/ I was pretty busy getting settled back into the family routine.
On another point, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!! I would like to say Happy Mother's Day to my lovely mother, Michelle ( I love you, Momma. Thanks for all you do! You are a wonderful mother and great friend! I couldn't have asked God for a better Mom.
