Lately we have been experimenting with taking our pictures in the reflection of mirrors. I don't know exactly why but it kind of started up in Vegas and I'm not sure we are done yet. It was a great way to get everyone in the picture without asking a stranger to take one.

They turn out pretty well too. I even have one from one of the casinos where we are looking up at a gold reflecting light fixture and my family is in the reflection. It is pretty cool and also gold and shiny so it is my screensaver right now. As a matter of fact, here it is:

You probably can't see us so you will have to take my word for it. I've thought about it and probably we got inspired by our cousin's daughter's wedding pics taken at the Bean in Chicago. It is a real giant reflection so the pics are great.

My favorite is the one my sis took at the Liberace museum. It is the four of us flanked by a couple of those outrageous outfits he was famous for. I don't have that one on my computer to share though.

Sometimes we don't like our reflections and my husband has a theory about that. He says only to look in mirrors where you like how you look. That is great advice--possibly even words to live by!

Now, I bet you thought I was going to reflect on life or something but I'm not. Sometimes things are just what they appear to be!
