Edit Me - 11.11.11

I wanted to post today because it's 11.11.11 and that only happens once per century. I just couldn't decide what to post about. A life update is not really needed because, let's face it, my life is a bit mundane. I work, I eat, I sleep. Occasionally, I see my husband. The only exciting thing that has happened recently is that my friend had a baby, and we are the godparents!

Besides that, though, we are just enjoying married life when we are together, missing each other when we are apart, and that's about it.

So, I decided to make a post for my edit of this week's Edit Me photo. I have only been posting these photos on flickr for the past few weeks because it's much easier than typing up an entire post. I'm doing it this week because I love how my edit came out, and I need some blank space to explain how I did it.
