Lately I’ve been thinking non stop about the ocean. So much so that I spent an evening last week looking through pictures from the short time I lived in Florida in 2011. With surprisingly teary eyes I nostalgically picked out a few images that conveyed the mood I was craving, full of salt water, pink skies, brown bellies, and that sound when a wave crashes the shore. I need a vacation. I think this is because since June began, life has picked up it’s pace and feels like the days of summer are already slipping quickly between my fingertips. When I look at my calendar this month is a blur to me. There are weddings (including a trip to San Fransisco to shoot with Claire!), two work trips for Scott, an extra member in our household, lots of dog sitting, big art shows to get ready for, work, and hopefully some time to enjoy the beautiful sunshine. It’s not the ocean, but maybe the Animas river in Durango can curb some of my cravings. Until then, I’m going to leave you with some random photos from around the house this week as I go prepare for a wedding I’m shooting tomorrow! Happy Friday!
This week has been…interesting. I took on the responsibility of watching over my friends’ two French bulldogs, Quasi and Uva. They snore all the time and look like little aliens. My dog, Daphnie, isn’t a big fan, but she’s quietly tolerating their weirdness until they leave Sunday. After a night of barking and a surprise pee on my boyfriend’s brand new Osprey backpack, I think we are ready for a quiet house next week too.
We have a shared garden space with our landlords (master gardener extraordinaire.) They were kind enough to give us two raised beds which we filled with carrots, peppers, tomatoes, and herbs. What we couldn’t fit in the raised beds we decided to put in pots on the patio. Scott is particularly excited about his peppers of all varieties. He said at some point he will play screaming death metal for them so they grow angry and hot. (And he most likely will.) This is why I adore him.
We eat tacos a lot. This night was particularly good, complete with grilled flank steak and watermelon sorbet!
