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! :)

Meanwhile, enjoy the few links below. I’ll see you back here on Monday!

These 7 shots are from what was definitely the shortest photo adventure Meegan and I have ever gone on. We parked in two different locations downtown on our way home from Starbucks and had like 30 minutes tops to spend taking photos. Continue reading

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
