hi.  i’ve missed it here.  things have been busy, busy, busy for us lately.  and my poor 52 week project has been neglected.  the good news is i haven’t missed a week of taking a photo – i’ve managed to eek something out each week. but, editing and posting is a whole other story.  and i can’t say i’m 100% proud of what i’ve been shooting lately, but it is what it is.

i often wonder how other people seem to do so much more than i can manage to accomplish.  bloggers and other hobbiest photographers come to mind.  i follow a fair amount of inspiring women – most everyone seems to have a job and still manages to cook what appears to be amazing food, take (and edit?!?) gorgeous photos, and post to their blogs with much more frequency and consistency than i do.  and i’m sure they have lives beyond their computers.  and some of them even have children. how?  i can’t figure it out.

whatever the reason, i’m envious.  i love photography and happily spend time tinkering around photoshop, posting photos, performing random acts of blog posting, and ogling over others’ lovely images – when i have time.  and when i don’t, it all takes a back seat.  the truth is, as you can see, sometimes i will be grossly behind because life and other priorities will get in the way.  but, i will continue to do this – no matter how inconsistently.  because it makes me happy.

okay, enough sulking.  on to the photos…

week 11: plan b.  the 52 week prompt was “green” in the spirit of st. paddy’s day. i had this great idea to buy and shoot some green french macarons from our favorite bakery, nuvrei.  come to find out their green pistachio macarons are more dull, grey-green than the shamrock green i had envisioned.  so much for that idea.  this blueberry muffin that i picked up for adam when i was scoping out the macarons was too delicious looking not to take a photo of.  so, here’s to plan b.

week 12:  minimal.  no good story to go along with this one.  it’s just a fork.  that’s it.


this is what i did on sunday right before heading up to my hotel room, packing my bags, and heading to the airport.  one last feel of the ocean on my feet.  sigh.  vacations rock.  being back at work rocks much less.

more vacation photos to come – along with the missing week 9 – soon.  i hope.

also on flickr.


we’ve been away in paradise for eight glorious days.  i’ve been largely offline.  and it’s been wonderful – all of it – including the being offline part.  but, i couldn’t help but catch up on my 52 week project by posting one of the many shots i’ve snapped since we’ve been here.  i’ll share more when we get back next week.  i’m off to sip another mai tai :)

focus52 prompt: light.
