a new experiment

I joined CrossFit Charlottesville in May 2010 and have loved it ever since. Almost religiously, I attended classes 3-5 times a week for the last year and a half. And while I've made some fantastic gains in strength and power (read about it here), I need to limit my CrossFit attendance. I've come to accept […]

I assisted a fellow photographer at a wedding a couple of weekends ago and already feel like I'm more comfortable photographing people. (People are scary) I just have to practice, practice, practice. Food is so much easier. It was a small wedding, nothing too fancy but still a gorgeous event. Here's my favorite shot of […]

Because you don’t think I’m weird enough…

I've been growing my own mushrooms! Thanks to Back to the Roots, I've successfully grown and harvested delicious mushrooms in my own home. I just wanted to share this with you guys because I'm very proud of my mushroom babies and can't wait to eat more of them.

I told him that I would commit to the month of On-Ramp classes and then I'd decide whether or not to continue. […]
