My Succulent Garden

My mom was in town back in May and as is custom when she visits, we bought some plants for the front yard.  One of our purchases was this sweet little hanging succulent planter.  A few weeks ago I took some pictures with my macro lens after the rain and since this has been a […]

A Slow Tuesday

Last week I was working from home.  We had all the lights turned off in the house and I was just puttering away on my laptop trying to get everything for our magazine launch finished.  It was nice.  It was overcast out (again), so the light coming in the windows was soft and muted. I […]

Visiting Pisgah National Forest

Friday I only worked until 1 PM, so when I got home, Mike and I decided to go on an impromptu camping trip for our 16 monthiversary. We packed up our camping stuff (twinkle lights included), left some food out for the cats, and hit the road to Pisgah National Forest. The weather was absolutely […]

When you give a kid a camera

I got my first camera sometime around 2000 or 2001. It might have been for my birthday while we were living in London.  I was instantly obsessed with photography and can’t even estimate how many rolls of film I went through. I’m up at my mom’s and was going through some things in my room […]
