If you haven't already noticed, the Everlasting Memories website {} has been completely re-done! I tried to make it more user friendly and easier to navigate. For those of you having trouble viewing the slide-shows on the website, I have added a 10 second buffer so there should be limited or no interruption. I have also posted pricing on the website so that those of you who had questions about the prices will be able to go directly to the site for that information. I have done away with packages and offered a per picture fee...this will make it easier for people who do not have 100 photos to put into a slide show. Over the next couple of weeks, you will see some changes on the blog as well.

Area Flooding

We have been bailing water for the past few days since the torrential downpour that Mother Nature decided to bestow upon us. Thanks to Hurricane Ike for all the rain!
For those of you who frequent the blog that are not from Northwest Indiana or the Chicago-land area, I thought I would post some photos of the flooding that has been going on in our area. These were taken by me on Sunday. This is looking out my sliding glass door at a retention ditch behind my house. This ditch NEVER used to fill, but look what happened.
Notice the hay floating...
