Week 8 & 9

The last two weeks… oh man. Still dealing with sickness, trying to figure out our (huge) kitchen remodel project, tons of other responsibilities. Ugh. I barely have enough pictures from the last two weeks to make up one weeks worth! Photography has just not been my priority lately. Honestly, I could use a little encouragement. This is usually about the point where I would just give up. Obviously taking a picture daily isn’t working out for me right now. But, I really really want to keep going. So, I’m going to keep trying. Really! I’m gonna beg for ideas again – as specific as you can. For some reason I’m just not feeling inspired lately, and I think a nice list of things to photograph would help motivate me. Vanessa, I’m still trying to pick from all the great ideas you gave me. I really like the idea of having an alphabet series where I use a new letter every day in some way as my subject. Either something starting with that letter, or the letter itself… like I said, still working on it. I need to get more organized!

Well, for what it’s worth, enjoy the following pictures!

Feb 24

Feb 24 – My haul from the library. I love to read and go through spurts where I just can’t get enough of it. After getting these, I think I read a book every day for like, 6 days in a row. I would definitely recommend Bright Blue Miracle and The Juliet Club, if anyone’s wondering. Smile

Feb 25

Feb 25 – Sweet Rachel and Lily having a sleepover. Rachel stayed the night and the girls had such a good time. They really enjoy each other.

Feb 26

Feb 26 – My good friend Krystal at her wedding shower. She’s so pretty, and just wait till next week – her wedding dress is gorgeous!

Mar 1

March 1 – The first phase of the afore-mentioned kitchen remodel. There used to be a wall and pocket-door here. Ben has fun tearing things apart.  I mean really, who doesn’t? Winking smile

Mar 2

Mar 2 – Lily and her friend Molly. Lily really adores Molly, and she just loves it when she comes over because she has a kindred spirit to play princess dress-ups with. I like the back lighting in this pic – it kind of makes it look like they were dipped in liquid gold.

Mar 4

Mar 4 – Making rolls for French Dip sandwiches. Very very yummy! I love making homemade bread!  In this shot my KitchenAid is standing on a cutting board that’s placed over the sink. I can’t wait until I have more kitchen space to work in!

There you go! Sorry I skipped a week. I just realized Michael really got shafted the last two weeks. Oops. Next time. Scouts Honor I’ll have a better turn out next week. (Can I still say that if the closest I ever got to scouting was watching my brothers pinewood derby races?)

This will sound cliche coming from a pregnant chick at 36 weeks along but take pictures of food for a week!! I'll enjoy it!! or plants, moving objects, old people....you'd have to be creepy like though in public. :)

You should do a week of self-portraits. Take a picture of yourself everyday. Use a tripod (if you have one) on some days and don't on others. You'd be surprised how different you look from the different angles.
