We have good news and bad news:
-Good news: We got the photos back.
-Bad news: 1) It cost us $80 for the file recovery software (but it was worth it). 2) I have to sort through thousands of jpg's to find most of the photos because the software recovers any and every image ever deleted or cached in your computer. 3) I have to put everything back the way it was. Right now, anything that is imported into iPhoto is in a big, fat, jumbled mess. This was the one area of my life where I was completely organized. When we got this computer a little over a year ago, I started out right by putting everything in order chronologically, placing the photos in folders organized by year and month, sometimes even special event. I get to start over. If nothing else, it will be a very humbling experience.
And here are my little Valentines:
How can you resist this face, even with cereal on it???
