Project 365

I've been using the Project365 iPhone app the past few months while I've been missing in action around here. The following are March, April & May.

An update

Tax season is in full swing around here so I’ve been firmly planted behind my desk either talking to clients or nose in a tax return.  I do love the chance to get caught up with so many people I don’t get to see very often.  The pace can get a little frenetic but I love it.  Here is what I’ve been up to photographically: 022010--1 022010--2 022010--3   I could relate to this snail.  I imagine it is wondering which way is up and which direction to head to safety.022010--6  My sister-in-law’s parents, Ron & Ginny, celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on February 14.  It was fun to get a chance to see them being a little bit sappy and romantic together after 60 years together. 022010--8022010--10

The resolutions

I like to think of resolutions as a conscious choice about how I’m going to act from this point forward.  A guiding principle.  I love the idea of a theme word for the year and have adopted BREATHE for 2010.  That was shamelessly stolen straight from Kari at Mamabloo.  It just seems so appropriate for me this year.  There is so much happening for so many of us.  I feel pulled in so many different directions.  I want to remember to be present in the moment.  To take a moment to remember and to just breathe.  To take time to be with those who matter most to me.




walk 01.02.2010-1 Here are other things I’m embracing for 2010. 

We’re going to eat more local whole foods.  We’ve signed up for a farm share/CSA with a local organic farmer and we’ll start getting our boxes in a week or so.  I’m excited to have new produce to try out every week and hope this will be a positive influence on our diets.



I’m going to move more.  Nothing too dramatic.  Just take more walks.  Get more exercise.  Live in the moment and get out from behind my desk.

I’m going to take more pictures.  Not quite ready to commit to Project365 but I want to be sure I’m taking pictures.  Maybe my CSA will provide more than just good food for us to try but also photographic subject matter.

I am going to enter at least one photo contest.  I want to put my photography out there.  I am not at a place where I want to make photography my full-time career.  I have a great business that I love and lots of clients I really enjoy.  But I do have an incredible love of and passion for photography and if I take myself more seriously that can only help my photography go to the next level.

I am wishing you all a happy and healthy 2010.

Family Photo Calendar

I’m staying up too late printing out my family photo calendar.  These are the images I chose for each month.  The calendar squares include pictures of each family member on their birthday.  It’s a fun tradition I haven’t done in a few years so I’m glad to be back at it again.  Hope you all are enjoying the holidays!January July June March May November October September April August December

Jess runs like the wind


Over the weekend, I attended the state cross country meet.  The little sister of my soon to be niece was set to run.  Her mom, a dedicated fan who hasn’t ever before missed one of her meets, was unable to attend because her youngest daughter was sick.  I had such a good time documenting the day to allow her mom to see the events unfold.  It was so awesome to watch Jess, only a sophomore this year, come in 3rd in the whole entire state in her event.  Here are just a few shots of her great race.

Sad news in B+W

Last week we learned our sweet Sam dog has cancer and won’t be with us much longer.  He’s been such a sweet boy.  I’m so glad we’ve had the chance to share our lives with him.Sam dog-3

When we got to our honeymoon cabin in Lincoln City, 10 years ago today, we met a very interesting fellow.  We weren’t exactly sure what his name really was but we called him Henry.  He’s the only seagull I’ve ever met with such a personality and a flair for drama.  Henry would alternate standing on one leg and then the other while extending his wing.  We’re not sure if this was in order to gain sympathy or just to entertain us with his tricks to solicit bread.  We thought he was the funniest seagull ever.  And 10 years later, these pictures still make Will and I laugh.  Thanks for the memories Henry!Henry 1 Henry 2

These shots were all taken with my very first digital camera.  It was an Olympus point-and-shoot.  It came with a printer too.  I was so excited when Will bought it for me on my birthday that year.
