A Little Taste of Nature

It’s been a busy January so I haven’t been able to put pen to paper (fingers to computer?) for my blog as often as I might have liked. Fortunately, I have been able to soak up some of California’s wonderful weather and take a few hikes outside with Buddy.

I thought I’d share some of my favorite Instagram photos from my time in the golden hills of California.

A + B

A + B

a couple of weeks ago I took Buddy on his first doggie playdate. it was really MY playdate with my oldest / bestest (it’s totally a word) friend Chelsea. we decided that since we were hanging out we might as well let the mutts do their thing too!

anywhoo, just thought I’d share the picture of Andy (Chelsea’s Briard) and Buddy (my golden retriever) — thus the “A + B” title of this post.

the boys became fast friends and were romping around the yard like THEY had been the ones hanging out since the 4th grade! too funny.

side note, do you see how dwarf-like Buddy looks by comparison to Andy. Briards can be HUGE, but they are such gentle giants.

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for a year, you’ve probably noticed the hottest trend for social media is to somehow document your everyday life.  currently I am participating (along with thousands of other people) in February Photo a Day, i.e. #febphotoaday

So just in case you aren’t already partaking in this challenge, here are the guidelines. Following the day-by-day ideas below, post pictures to instagram with the hashtag of #febphotoaday . Today’s image is supposed to be of the inside of you closet. Sounds silly, but some of the creative pictures I’ve seen for the past 2 weeks are really cool.

In order to provide inspiration, I’ve included all my feb photo a day pics from instagram.  Of course, don’t forget to follow me on followgram

If you read my blog regularly, you know how obsessed I am with Apple products… they are pretty much my life. Of course, my most recent Apple purchase is my wonderful iPhone 4s. Aside from the awesomeness of Siri, and the ability to actually surf the web (not possible on my old blackberry), everyone knows, the apps are where it’s at.  My favorite app, Instagram, allows you to use a huge variety of filters on your photos to create even more beautiful scenes, and you’re able to “follow” your friends from Facebook, Twitter, etc. in a seamless stream of photos.

Yeah, basically, it is amazing.

Sun Filled and Fun Filled

Wow, it has been far too long since I got on my blog. The past month has been absolutely jam-packed with moving and work, and driving! I am officially back in California, which is amazing. I am loving being back at work at Tiny Prints, and spending time with my sister, brother-in-law, and nieces.  I finally saw Eclipse (the third movie in the Twilight saga) and I’ve officially decided it is the best movie of the saga so far, and I’m desperately hoping to see it again, because waiting for DVD will just be too hard.  What team are you on bloggers/readers? I’m personally a fan of team Emmett! Kellan Lutz is so pretty :)

I don’t have any photos to post at the moment, but they will be coming soon.  I’ve finally started that summer reading list (well I started last night) that I posted before, I’m about 1/3 of the way through Dear John, and I’m loving it.  It’s taken some serious mental effort to get the movie out of my head…always the problem with seeing the movie before reading the book!  Have you bloggers been reading this summer? Tell me what books your interested in,  in the comments, I’m always looking for good reads! (even if it does take me a  lifetime to get around to actually starting the book!)  I’m trying to think about what else has been going on since I last posted something on my blog…. Ooooh, I can’t believe I forgot! Spain won the World Cup! How exciting is that?  I didn’t stick to my resolution to watch every game, but I watched a few, and of course, the very last game.

Anyway, bloggers & readers, I hope you are having a fun summer, and getting out into the sun (safely, of course), and spending time with friends and family… preferably around a BBQ!

p.s. the photo is one of many to come from my trip to the San Francisco Zoo!

Sisterly Love

This blog post is about siblings as a whole, but has to do with my sisters in particular.  I started writing, and just couldn’t stop.  If you would like to read the full text, click on this link or you can go to the writing page, and find it there, the piece is called, “Sisterly Love.” I don’t really know what you would call it, because it is not an essay, nor a blog post–basically it’s an extended thought process.  If you have siblings, I suggest you read this piece.  If you don’t have siblings, I REALLY suggest you read “Sisterly Love.”
