What a gorgeous day for a walk! My daughter and I had fun finding evidence of Spring along our journey–she is a total sucker for leaves, flowers, sticks etc.

The farm had duck eggs again this past weekend! Fattier = yummier! And I adore that there is a feather still stuck to one.

I love film. I cannot wait until I am consistently rocking it! But it ALWAYS rocks me to the core. I get teary and sweaty when I look at each new scan. You don’t get that thrill with a CF card.
These are all Portra 400 or Ektar 100.

I got a new toy (a light meter) and told Delilah to play. Then I just shot. 36images. 2 settings. How freeing!!!
What a difference in using pro film and being (pretty) sure of my settings.
These are all straight out of the camera and scanned by my lab. No fiddling on the computer!

So, I let the project fall to the wayside. My typical m.o. I get a bit disorganized, miss a day doing something, get overwhelmed, and just let it go forever.
This project got overwhelming when I was supposed to take a photo of staying in. Well, my husband isn’t home during the pretty light. So I skipped a day. (Here is Archie and I staying in today.)
Then we were supposed to go out and have a stranger snap a picture of us in auto mode. Date night? HAH! Let a stranger touch my camera? HAH! auto mode? no such thing. So, here is Delilah as Brian (see the beard?) and me out on a date.
Day 19 was “when they’re gone”. This was just pure laziness. I hadn’t done 17 & 18, so I wasn’t going to skip! The horror!
When my kids are gone, we make the food actually taste good to us. With these things–and more. And then I still have to add in more chili. Because brian is a wuss.
And “When they’re here” there is a lot of tantrums. I like to email with my clients, so they cannot hear the screams.
My babies’ “hands.”
And TODAY’s! I am all caught up!
A face. Just a PORTRAIT of my daughter. And the attempts to get a non-creepy one.

I love any excuse to use my macro lens.
Here is my heart-shaped ebay engagement ring. And my Jared wedding band. We went to Jared!
I wanted a heart diamond so bad. I probably would have said no if he had put anything else on my hand.

I couldn’t think of anything Brian talks about doing a lot besides buying a house, having two cars we love, or affording preschool for the kids and a studio for me. But I do know we are both the happiest when we are going somewhere new. We talk about going to London for a week every year, but there is always something we need more. We get so depressed not being in Europe or Disney World. And he is always saying he just wants to GO somewhere. At this point, I think we would both take NYC or LA or Toronto. (Can you tell we like the city and excitement? I went to Dublin in 2005 and was so bored at the slooowness.)

Yesterday, we took a trip down to Williamsburg for the day. We have been trying to get to Christmas Town at Busch Gardens all month, but we got sick. Yesterday, we had tickets for a dinner with Santa. (Downsizing from our big pre-christmas trip we had planned complete with front of the line passes.) This time, snow was our nemesis and we have officially given up on Christmas Town. I’m disappointed, but not as much as I would be if they didn’t refund all our money.
We went over to Colonial Williamsburg instead and I snapped some pictures of my baby in the snow. The storm totally missed us in Northern Virginia, so she was ecstatic to play in the white stuff.

My kitchen table has become a catch-all of clutter recently, but I don’t mind so much when the clutter is CSA pumpkins, squash and some beautiful flowers!
