Introducing my new logo…
Well I am back to tackling my 52 week project. It was put on hold while I focused on my 365, but I am now going to get back to a one a week track. I have decided my new week starts on Mondays, because I will only be doing my pictures on the weekends due to student teaching. I have also decided to keep explanations to a minimum from now on, if there is any explanation at all. If you are curious about a picture feel free to ask, and I will respond, but in general I will be keeping my posts short and simple from here on out.
So, here we go again, week 37, “Lost”
I debated for so long if I should upload this. I don’t like it all that much, and it is not at all what I had in my head, but I decided that I want to start getting through this 52 week project, and that it is alright for me to not be in love with every picture I take; just like my 365. So, here is “week” 36.
Well, I took lots of pictures when I was home. And I liked a lot of them. And I am sitting on my couch with the windows open because it is 61 degrees out, and so I thought what better time to post pictures? So here you go, enjoy a quick view into my stay in the frozen tundra for break.
Similar, but I liked the slightly different composition.
Happy New Years Eve!!
Today was a perfect last day in Stillwater. Lunch with Kelley and Blair, then taking pictures downtown Stillwater with my good friend Alec, and drinking coffee and catching up with Alec and two other good friends, Hannah and Anders. It couldn’t have been a better night. And downtown Stillwater is beautiful.
Oh, and much much thanks to Alec for helping me find places to take pictures, and essentially acting as my creative director!!!
Now to go to bed so that I can get up and drive 13 hours back to Lexington.
I went out to take some self-portraits tonight, which failed, but while walking into my backyard I notice the long shadows on the snow, and how many colors there were because of the setting sun. I couldn’t resist.
Last night I got to hang out with my two most wonderful girl friends for the first time in a year. Kelley, Blair, and I were finally all in Stillwater at the same time, and so we managed to get together to catch up and watch a movie. And it was beyond wonderful. I missed those girls so much. And if you are reading this, I love you both!!
Anyways, (sorry for that personal stuff there), by the time the movie was over it was late, I was exhausted, and I didn’t have a picture. I was planning on just heading home and finding something in my house, but as I was walking out I saw the pot with the pine and lights, and the snow piled on top of it all. Snow on top of Christmas lights is always one of the most beautiful things to me, so I decided to take a few pictures before walking to my car.
I have known that I wanted my picture on Christmas day to be of my baby ornament for weeks. So here you go, my “baby’s first Christmas” ornament.
Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all have had as wonderful of a day as I have!
My oldest brother and his wife are in town, and I couldn’t be more excited! They both climb a lot, including ice climbing. Kyle (my brother) had heard of a spot not far from our house in MN where we could do some ice climbing. I was so excited because he was going to anchor me to the top so I could take pictures. But, we hiked out there and there wasn’t a single chunk of ice on the cliff. It was fairly disappointing, but we had a nice hike, and went back to the house to play some hockey. Plus, the rest of the day involved an excellent dinner with all of us, some playing of sporcle, and then going to see a Thelonious Monk tribute band in downtown St. Paul. It couldn’t have been better.
Oh, and these are my brother ice climbing tools for those who are curious.
