One for the books

Yesterday was my birthday. I'm climbing through the 30's faster than I thought I would. It's a bit scary to be honest. It began at 6am yesterday morning when Colby, who had snuck in earlier that morning due to a nightmare, reached for his sip cup of juice and mistakenly grabbed my normal glass of juice and in the dark spilled the entire glass all over me in bed. I, of course, was asleep until SPLASH and thought that Colby had been sick. I jumped up from bed, repeatedly asking Colby if he was sick as I was scrambling for the night. Poor little bugger kept saying "I'm sorry mommy, the top wasn't on my juice!" I cleaned both of us up, while Rob was chuckling in the backround saying "Happy Birthday Mommy, SPLASH". I sent Colby back to bed and curled up on the couch until the baby woke up. I had a great day at home with the guys, and they made me a great birthday card. I also received 2 very disturbing calls yesterday. One from a close member of the family who was attacked the night before by a family friend, and another from Rob's mom saying that his grandmother could not get out of bed and was in the hospital. Even though it was my birthday, I'm glad it's over and everyone is back on the road to recovery. I also received an interesting email. I have been approached to do a b/w photo shoot of a man who wants to do these pictures for this fiancee. He wants to do "sensual" pictures, which at first made me chuckle and think to myself "I don't do nudes of people I don't know", but the more I got chatting with him, he doesn't want anything pornographic (thank god) but just something sensual that leaves "something to the imagination" as a present for his fiancee. I have been trying to find some inspiration through pictures on the web, but every search I look for finds me looking at gay porn. Not quite what I'm looking for! Does anyone have any idea of where I can look for black and white pictures of men that are not graphic and totally nude? Tawny has always loved a b/w picture of a couple by a photographer by the name of Pamela Hanson (I think) and that's the type of style I'm looking for, but I can't seem to find anything with just men. Lots and lots of women, but no men. Any suggestions of websites or books would be greatly appreciated. Once I find what I'm looking for, I'm going to try out a few pictures with Rob, and I'll post them for opinions! (And Adam also if he'll let me!)

Happy Birthday dear friend :).

I was thinking about you on Sunday, and remembering birthdays past.

And you're not getting old, sheesh. You're in your early 30's. Love it! :)
