Tuesday Mornings

I love Tuesday mornings and this is why: Tuesdays I don't start work untill 3pm.  I have a nice little routine where I wake up at around 9:30-10AM and lazily fumble around for some cereal.  I happened to eat the entire box of Honey Nut Cheerios this morning, so I guess I'll have to make a trip to the store tomorrow.  I'll surf the internet and chill out till like 1PM, then I get ready to leave for work at 2.  It's like that every single week.  It's my favorite.  And part of that routine has to do with making a little too much coffee for a single person to drink.

And I really had no idea how saturated those photos came out until I JUST posted them.  I swear my dinosaur MacBook displays colors in a broken kind of way.  Trust me.  I don't think that looks good, but I'm too lazy to fix it now.  You've probably noticed the fuji's I lave laying on the table.  You can't tell exactly what they are but it's something I'm proud of.  One, our new "area".  We have an incredible new couch thanks to my cuz Natalie, and we've been making good use out of it.  We eat our dinners on our TV trays and watch PeepShow every night.  Except now we've watched EVERY episode of EVERY season, so it's back to our old NBC favorites and waiting for new episodes to come out. But my Fuji makes me realize a few important things...  it kinda sucks, you can't turn off the flash, and there is no manual controls.  It's fun, but it's not exactly what I want either.  I've been debating and debating what to do with this tax return of mine, I have a lot I need to pay for and save for and plan for, but dammit.  I want a new camera.  

This camera-

The 600SE.  The Goose.   I found a few on Amazon for like $600 or $700, but not sure I can take the plunge yet.  Hopefully I can make up my dang mind soon.  I'm getting impatient, and feel like I'm in a creative funk.  Let's hope I snap out of that too.

Easter Weekend

Hello! Happy mid-week to you. This is the roll of photos we shot over our Easter weekend, and oh what a wonderful weekend it was. It was so nice to have family here to visit - even if the weather was cooler than we anticipated! We visited the redwoods in Felton, ate vegetarian burritos, went to the epic shoreside in Montara, and the brewing company in Half Moon Bay. Our hearts are full and our home is feeling quite empty now ;)

As a side note, I've found a renewed love with film. This is a post for another time, but it bears mentioning here! There has been much on my mind re: photography, and hopefully this will be the space I can share that.

For the curious, all the above were shot on a Nikon FM10 with Fuji Superia 400 speed film.

The Long And Short Of It

Hi, friends. How was your weekend? After having non-stop rain for nearly a month, we finally received a short break in the El Niño weather to head to the coast. Even though it's not in our backyard, I still feel like twenty miles to the beach is a good compromise. It really is lovely here and it makes me happy to see the girls so at home in the sea.

This week we are gearing up for Easter and some very special visitors -- my Mama and my sister! It will be the first time Mom has seen our new home or visited the Bay Area, so to say we are excited would be an understatement. We cannot wait. I've even kept it as a surprise from the girls, so I'm sure the look on their faces alone when they see Grammie and their Auntie will be the highlight of the whole trip.

What about you? Any special Easter plans or crafting?

We made some hot crossed buns for the first time last year, and I'm hoping I can bake a little something special this year too. We're going to try this recipe a…

Made It To Another Weekend : The Table

Oh, weekend. We are so happy you're here. It's been a doozy lately. I won't put you through the pitiful details, don't worry-- but I'm just happy to exhale a little bit and am welcoming these days of togetherness with open arms. PS- look at me using unfiltered iPhone photos in a blog post. Who am I? Sometimes I don't even recognize myself. Truly a measure of just how exhausted I really am both mentally and physically ;)

And while I've been seriously down and out in every other area of my life, we've actually been doing some pretty cool things at home. I'm so proud of Sofia and her desire to soak up new information, to learn, and to think of me as a pretty cool "teacher". I'm so in awe of everything she does. But this is all part of the inevitable fact that these kiddos of ours are growing up. 
Most days we'll do some kind of worksheet, practicing our letters and cutting skills and getting to color.... other days we'll just spe…
