Happy First Birthday Eavan!

I can't believe my niece Eavan is already one!  Last weekend Nate and Jess threw a big party to celebrate the day at my parent's house.  Turns out she's already incredibly popular because she drew quite the crowd.

Happy Birthday Eavan!  I love you so much and it is so much fun to watch you grow up!

Wish I knew more about :: DESIGN

Typography is so incredibly interesting to me.  Although I must admit that graphic design is something I only appreciated in a very surface level way until I started working at Bethany a year ago.  I work with some really talented people, who have been nice enough to explain some of the things mentioned in the video to me.  A year ago, I had no idea what most of these terms were.

Another interesting/related video I stumbled upon in the blogosphere today...

10 on 10: August

I usually love 10 on 10 days.  It's fun and an excuse to carry my camera around with me wherever I go.  My coworkers have even started to remind me when the 10th is coming up (which is really sweet). But this wasn't one of those fun days. I was emotional, irritable and insecure. But in that low, the meaning behind this project finally sunk in. I think seeking out beauty is always a good idea.  Maybe even more so on the tough days.

A few other random things: Dubliner cheese is amazing, if you are missing your Bible check with your church (these are only the Bibles from lost and found that have names in them), also my lunch was much more glamorous than the uncooked Tap Ramen noodles and Klondike bar I had for dinner. I just didn't want you to get the wrong impression about my eating habits. :)
