India Visas. . . . check!!

One step closer to our next big adventure. . . we have obtained our India visas after 1 passport photo, 1 page of extremely confusing internet directions, 1 incorrect India visa request form, 1 correct India visa request form, 1 internet order form for India visa, 1 copy of driver's license proving my correct address, 1 intact passport, 1 scanned page of correct India visa request form, $75 of fees, and 1 trip driving to San Francisco.  *wheww*  In the midst of this process, Clayton and I asked each other "How bad do we want to go to India?"  As this was the first time I have every had to apply for a visa I had no idea what I was getting myself into.  I guess I had it better than my dear brother who applied for a visa to China.  He had all of the above plus another trip to San Francisco and an added $70 in fees. 

On another note, a nice lady standing in line with us to pick up the visas informed me that the shopping is incredible!  The very nice pair of sandals she had on were from India and cost a whopping $2.50!  (Clayton did not want me to hear this little gold nugget of information)

India. . . here we come!

Clayton Bradley {the photographer}

Over the last couple of years what has started out as a hobby turned into a passion. . . . my awesome husband has become an entrepreneur, creating what is called Clayton Bradley {not photography}. . . Lensman! His website can be found at www.clayton-bradley.com. He is currently a photographer for Sacramento magazine and has photography for weddings, engagement sessions, maternity, sport events, senior portraits and fashion events as well. Needless to say, I am extremely proud of him and love what he creates. Here are just a few of my favorite photographs he has taken. . .
