putting the sun in sunday

i took these all last sunday.

you see, i had heard that morning that my twin baby nephew’s had just been born. i wasn’t able to go visit them until the next day so i decided to head out and enjoy the january sunshine.

one hour later, one phone call with my other sister-in-law (we gushed about the babies, anxious to meet our sweet new nephews), and a roll of ektar 100 later, i headed home.

i was happy with myself for seizing the moment and enjoying the sun on that chilly afternoon.

this first one is my new car! i love it.

it was still frosty out, even at 2:30 p.m.




can you believe all this sunshine? in january? amazing.



the frost, however, is very timely. it IS january after all.


i just spent this evening, scanning these babies on my new scanner. not sure i did as good as the lab but oh well. it’s fun to see the images come to life this way and to have such control.

i hope your sunday night is just as lovely as mine. see you next week!

We’re spending the night in Seattle tonight so I’m sharing photos from the trip Cal and I made back in March to celebrate my birthday. I meant to post these ages ago but you know how it goes. Better late than never, right? (I think that might be my life motto.)

It was my first time visiting the Experience Music Project. I just love that building. Frank Gehry is a genius.

A bit of randomness today, pulling from my archives.

A visit to Gartner’s Meat Market at the end of 2010 (love that place, best pepperoni ever!)…

And my first picture of the New Year (we love popcorn!).

Broder is my hands-down my favorite breakfast place in the city. It’s always busy, there will be at least a half hour wait but so, so worth it. Oh me oh my, go visit! You will not be disappointed.

Winter in Oregon is a lot of bare trees and rain. Photographically speaking, it’s not the most inspirational. Occasionally there are glimpses of true winter and sometimes you have to travel a bit for it.


the name of this post was inspired by this gorgeous website.

a few of my winter flickr faves: here, herehereherehere, and here.

i can’t wait until the city looks, smells, and feels like this again.

honestly though, we all need a little more of this!
