One of my favorite instant shots from this past summer.

The afternoons are still quite warm here, but mornings and evenings feel like autumn and it's a lovely combination. I'd be happy if the weather stayed like this forever.

I seem to dread winter more and more with each passing year. I think it's mostly because our house is so cold during the wintertime. If it was warm and cozy inside, I would perhaps be able to appreciate the cold beauty of winter.

We just got back from a long road trip vacation out east. First we hit the beach in Isle of Palms, SC and spent some time with Will's family. Then we made a quick stop in Winston-Salem where we got to see many of our friends, have drinks at Single Brothers (the best bar ever!) and see some amazing music. Our last stop was Pittsburgh where we spent a week running around, catching up with friends, eating lots of good food and squeezing in a few hours of relaxation here and there. It was a blast and while I am happy to be home, I am already missing all of our good friends.

I hope to write a bit more about the trip soon and start getting some photos posted. Right now I am still in the middle of catching up at home and figuring out what comes next for me.

More soon. xo

Meesh is the best.

But shhhh, don't tell my cats I said that!

Friday, September 2

And now I am 41.


Turning 40 last year didn't bother me at all, but for some reason, in my silly head, turning 41 means pushing 50. Which is kind of scary.

And I'll reiterate that I know it's silly, yes, because obviously at 41, I am not even halfway to 50!

It's just a numbers thing.

I usually wax nostalgic on my birthday...but not today. This past year has been difficult but not unbearable and all is well today. So I'll leave it at that for now.

Today I ended up spending a good part of the afternoon messing up self-portrait shots and feeling vaguely stressed about "wasting" so much of my instant film. My not-so-very-cheap instant film. But oh well, it just happens sometimes and I am lucky enough to have lots more film waiting to be used.

Now I am just waiting, I guess, and looking forward to a lovely evening on the patio at the Terra Bar. I shall report back about food this weekend!

Hope all of you lovelies have a splendid weekend! xo
