My Weekend :: Jan. 6-8

After being a little under the weather last week, my weekend was low key and I loved it.  A few home projects, a lot of Netflix and quality time with my man.

 (i take a lot of pictures of coffee)

My Weekend :: Dec. 30 - Jan. 1

Warning: I'm about to talk about how awesome my boyfriend is, so if that doesn't interest you, feel free to skip down to the pics. Michael is pretty phenomenal at giving gifts. He's not always great at keeping them a secret, but he really knows how to spoil me. This year, among other things, he surprised me with a sweet new lens for the camera he bought me last Christmas. He's really supportive of my growing passion for photography--he even signed me up for a class/workshop back in September.

I was really inspired by that workshop, but got busy with life and forgot to use the tips/tricks I learned that day. In an effort to regularly practice those things, and get to know my new lens, I decided to start weekly(ish) posts by taking more photographs on weekends. I took pics the last two weekends, but didn't get around to posting them.  So I'm playing catch-up tonight. I know myself, and this definitely won't happen every week (hence the "ish" above), but it's resolution time, so most likely I'll stick with this until mid February when it starts to fade out.  Just kidding. (I hope...) :)

 (note to self: new lens isn't arm's length compatible)

 (happy new year!)

10 on 10: January

This was a really long day. Long enough that I considered putting multiple "L's" in that really. It's not the first time I've worked both jobs on a 10 on 10 day but definitely the first that started at 2am and is ending at 11pm. Honestly though, no complaints. Aside from the initial scare at Christina's puncture wound (which turned out to be an easy fix, by the way), the day was great. Productive, good conversations, and a fantastic dinner with a friend. But as you can see below, my bed is waiting for me and I'm pretty excited about it.  Happy 10 on 10 world!
