LoveBug Portraits in Bodie, CA

Before heading out to NY, a friend and I did a road trip to Bodie California. Bodie is an old mining town, now turned ghost town, about a hour outside Mammoth.
This was a great road trip and suggest it to anyone who wants to see a town that time forgot. Thanks Katie for the suggestion.

Check out the LoveBug Portraits Facebook profile for more Bodie pictures!

Oh so windy!

Love this view point.

Pine cones!

Love these flowers.

Kind of freaky if you ask me. People just got up and left when the mine when dry.

Neat building.

Always wanted a bathtub in my yard.

Beautiful lake, but oh so smelly.

Thanks completing this shot J.

LoveBug Birthday in NY

I know you all were wondering where I went this year for my birthday and what I did, so here are a few screen shots of Where's Tanni?

Nat, thanks so much for making this year truly an event to remember.

No, it wasn't raining. Just me being silly.

Another sign that Nat made for me that says "Happy Birthday Tanni".

Me holding a sign that says "Happy Birthday to Me!"

Hoda and Kathy Lee thanks for give me props!

Love this one!

LoveBug in New York City - take 2

This has taken a little longer then expected (got to love computers), but without further a due here are more pictures from NY.

What is so special about this? Just yesterday I was spinning my Nat on my head. Come on guys you can do better then this. :)

Nat, Sharon and I outside Serendipity 3 on my birthday. I don't think I could have asked for anything more. If you ever make it to this NY icon, you have to try their frozen hot chocolate, yummy!

A view from Central Park. Don't you just love the combo of buildings and nature together?

Just walking the streets around the hotel. Love the red doors. I wonder if this would look just as good in black and white.

You can't have NY without taxi's.

Love the contrast of the old vs. the new.

Little polish kids during a polish parade. Aren't the cute?

I think this one sums up NY pretty good, hotdog vendor, taxi, Radio City music hall, subway entrance, tall buildings, lots of traffic and people on the streets.

Check out lovebug portraits on facebook for more NY pictures.

I hopefully I will have all the audio hiccups out soon and I can do my last NY post shortly. I know you are dying to know how I spent the rest of my bday in NY.

PS. V and S can't wait till I see you in NorCal.

Love "This is it!"

MJ's people just released a new track on Monday called "This is it". This song is another piece of magic that will be sure to be followed by several more. If you haven't heard it yet it can be heard on or at the below link.

Oh Michael I miss you!

LoveBug in New York City - part 1

One of the most important experiences I learned from my Guatemala trip was to love the people that were also there to serve. It was during this time I made four new friends and came closer to an old friend. This past weekend I was able to reconnect with them in NYC. Girls it was a blast and can't wait to see you all again.

Sarah outside the hotel we stayed in.

Down by one of the harbors in the financial district.

It rained so hard while visiting the lovely lady that it reminded me of Seattle. In order to get this shot I had to hide under a sign. I was quite the site getting this picture without getting my camera wet.

Oh Sarah and V how I can't wait to see you again in November.

This guy was amazing. You told him where you were from and he would make up a song about the state or country. He said he learned all his facts off the internet.

The girls.

Kids playing in the bubbles at Central Park.

More of Central Park.
