nicole | impromptu portraits downtown

IMG_7501Last Friday my dear friend, Nicole, and I checked out a new-to-us coffee shop downtown. Our iced lattes were followed by a nice walk, and obviously, much picture-taking :)

Here are some impromptu portraits of Nicole! (iPhone only) Continue reading

three from the weekend

threefromtheweekend20I did everything this weekend. Farmers market, library, a friends yard sale, tacos, Costco, family dinner with dear friends (we laughed harder than any of us had laughed in a long time), church, lunch with friends, and church again. It was full and wonderful, and I’m simultaneously feeling full of energy and sleep deprived. The next several weeks will be grand.

Also, I know that historically I’ve not been the greatest about blogging while I’m home, but I’m committed to it this time. This venue is wonderful for documentation and I’d like to make sure I have posts to go back and read when I want to remember. I hope you find it maybe even just slightly interesting. And if you don’t, well, that’s fine too! :)

day trip / the art museum

IMG_3011Two Saturdays ago Meegan and I ventured out of town for the whole day and went to an art museum. I refer to actions such as this as “sanity management,” or those things you do in order to maintain or restore your mental faculties. It’s nice to have a friend who also occasionally feels the need to get out of this town and see something new and different.

Anyways, we were both visiting this particular museum for the first time, and we loved it. Continue reading

three from the weekend

threefromtheweekend17The weekend. It was beautiful and fast. Here’s a glimpse…

01 / Brioches and Chocolate Things from Cheese Board’s cookbook. Some days I need something bready, and I need something from Cheese Board. Friday was that sort of day.

02 / Meegan and I ventured to the art museum on Saturday to see the Van Gogh to Rothko exhibit. (More on that later!!)

03 / When I dropped Meegan off at school on Saturday night, I met Norman. They found him in either a dumpster or storage room, and now he lives in the hallway.

three from the weekend

threefromtheweekend1501 / It rained a bit, but I loved it because it felt like winter at home (read: rain, 55 degrees) and I got to wear my TOMS.
02 / On Saturday I played guitar outside and it was grand.
03 / Meegan and I squeezed in a photo adventure without even trying! More photos soon.

xo,
Maci

shadows on the tennis court

tennis01Yesterday I convinced my brother to go play tennis with me because it was such a beautiful day and I’ve been dying for a chance to play. The public court we use gets full sun, and I found myself admiring the dramatic shadows as we played. So when we finished up I grabbed my iPhone and took a few snapshots. Continue reading
