Looking for me?

New posts coming soon. Hope everyone is having a great start to the new school year.

Oh hi it’s another test

because i can’t make decisions and am not a graphic designer, i still don’t know what i want this blog to look like. so i’m playing around with it some more. smaller pictures, because i just can’t get into the bigger ones.

600px wide. how does this look?

i think i’m going with 600px, people. now there are are only, like, 100 or so other decisions still left to make.


Oy. I am so behind on blogging. First up, here are a few pics of an album I did for a client. This is what a session album looks like. I think they’re awesome. The photos are mounted on the pages with mats. This album has 30 pages (the maximum available–you can see how thick this is already).

Happy birthday!

On Wednesday, Lyle turned 3. I know everyone says it, but I can’t believe it’s already been 3 years. When we decided to have a baby, that’s all I really thought about…having a BABY. I did not think about what it might be like to have a little boy, a 3-year-old who goes to camp and loves the color yellow and plays with trains and has (strong) preferences for what foods he eats. Probably because I just didn’t know what it might be like–I had no idea how life with a 3-year-old worked.

When I picked him up from camp after lunch on his birthday, I took him to a cupcake boutique in Montrose to celebrate. He picked out a cupcake with green frosting and sprinkles, and after he ate all the icing off, he asked for my icing. (Which I still hadn’t touched, because I was too busy taking pictures of him.) I hate icing, so I scooped the icing off mine and plopped it on top of his cupcake, and he ate that, too. He thought the visit to the cupcake store was a great way to celebrate. I did too.

Life is going on without me

The week before last, Lyle and I took a trip out to San Diego to visit friends there. It was our first time back since we moved away last summer, and it was bittersweet. Several things had changed–one of my favorite restaurants was no longer there, kids are all older, there are lots of new babies–and it made me kind of sad to see that everything’s still going on there without me around to be a part of it.

I did, however, manage to bring back some things to help remind me of that place…namely as many Trader Joe’s Indian dinners as I could fit in my suitcase. I used to eat these at least 3 times a week for lunch. Why are there no Trader Joe’s in Houston???

These two spent a lot of time playing “mail,” putting toys and other objects back and forth through the mail slot in the wall.
