Wednesday Walk: A Gift

Middle of the week and here I am with my trusty phone blogging. This afternoon, instead of taking a walk around the building I had some errands to run. Since I always work through lunch, it’s nice to get a change of scenery in the afternoon if I can. Today I headed off to James […]

Decorating with Quilts

I’m still on my decorating kick, if you couldn’t tell.  It’s spring, I’ve been watching a lot of HGTV and looking at a lot of design blogs…so I’m nesting.  One of the things that is so important to me in decorating our home is incorporating my creative side.  I create, and I have a love […]

Wednesday Walk: Dreams of Travel

Wednesday! I’ve been training my replacement at work this week (I’ve been doing two jobs for awhile now), and you wouldn’t believe the amount of walking I’ve been doing. We’ve walked all over this place repeatedly in the past three days. This morning when I passed by this world map I had to snap a […]

Living Room Redo

Since I’m on a spring cleaning/redecorating kick right now, I thought I’d share before & after photos from a while back when my friend, Jennifer, came over to help me do some revamping in our living room.  Let me start off by saying, 1) we rent our home so there’s only so much I can […]

Inspiration from New York

I came across a couple of photos from a home we stayed in on Long Island (still looking at inspiration photos).  I thought these accessories in the guest room I stayed in were interesting…  This room was done in blue, white and yellow.  And yes, Eric and I had to stay in separate rooms!  The […]

Inspiration from Virginia

It could be that I’ve got Spring Cleaning on the brain (which always goes hand in hand with redecorating).  Or it could be that I spent a good portion of yesterday watching HGTV.  But, I’m dying to spend some time working on our house – organizing, cleaning out, decorating, sprucing up, etc.  This morning I […]

Five Years

On Friday morning I came downstairs to find not one, but two vases of roses from Eric.  We were celebrating our five year wedding anniversary, and I couldn’t believe all the roses!  They were stunning!  He also had a sweet sweet card for me as well. We decided to celebrate our day by going out […]

Wednesday Walk: Empty Seats

I actually did go for my afternoon walk today. Never sure where I’m going to end up. Lately, I’ve been trying to change my attitude and spend more time focusing on what I’m grateful for in my life. But it’s a struggle somedays. Today I’m wondering what the point is of continuing to post on […]

Living Art

Remember a few days ago when I posted my Flamenco shoot?  And I said that it was really my first foray into shooting models?  Yeah, apparently I was smoking something when I wrote that.  I was digging back through photos and found this folder of shots from August of last year.  ???  Yeah, I don’t […]


A few weeks ago, I decided to face my fear expand my horizons and go up to the studio to shoot.  We had the opportunity to shoot two Flamenco dancers, which I thought would be really cool.  Since this was the first time I’d ever shot in a studio setting, I was actually kind of […]

Wednesday Walk: En Route

No walk for me today as I am en route to my (hopefully) last root canal appointment. I started reading a new book a couple of nights ago though, so it’s coming with me. Tonight will be a relaxing evening of pasta and curling up with my book while Eric’s at the studio.

The Moon is a Harsh Mistress

A couple of Saturdays ago, the moon was supposedly closer to the Earth than it’s been in twenty years, or something.  So Eric and I set out with our tripods to the park near our house to see if we could get some good photos.  Let me just say, it was a lot of trial […]
