my love affair

I must confess. I've been having an affair. With my iPhone. Phew. There, I said it. My poor little DSLR must hate me. But it's just too bulky for me to take everywhere! My iPhone is sleek and adaptable. It has allowed me to just capture moments and memories without having to fiddle with the […]

Day 204 – 7.23.2011

Our box recently had it's 2 Year Anniversary and on Saturday, we were all invited to one of the owner's houses for a pool party! The humidity in Virginia right now is unforgiving so the water was just as hot as the air but once it cooled down it felt pretty comfortable. Can I just […]

Days 197, 198

This past weekend was exactly what I needed it to be. I started off by working a double on Friday (as a result, no photo) which established a surprisingly enjoyable rhythm of craziness. Chris and his parents were visiting for the weekend so I managed to get the two days off. Saturdays mean Farmer's Market […]

Day 195 – 7.14.2011

As I've mentioned, my parents visited me this past weekend. Whenever they come down, my mom insists on bringing me two things 1) flowers and 2) an obscene amount of fresh fruit.

Spent Saturday morning being very Charlottesville-y: walked to yoga (in my Vibrams), headed to the Farmer's Market (bought lots of local stuff), and walked home (still in my Vibrams). Yadda yadda yadda. Yes, I'm a nouveau-hippie. (This just made me laugh - "NO WHINING")Well-known fact: when the train comes through Charlottesville - everything must come […]

Days 131-132, Guatemala City and back in the States!

We decided to spend the last night in Guatemala at my paternal grandmother's house - she may be 84 but she'll hold a grudge for as long as you live. Her house is also the house where my parents and I lived while in Guatemala. It was way smaller than I remember, but it just […]

Days 117-119, Guatemala City

[Sorry for taking so long to update, I've been crazy busy - but no more excuses! I'm going to start posting my pictures from Guatemala by location/event instead of by day-to-day.] We arrived in at the Guatemalan Airport at noon, where we were greeted by my godfather, followed by my paternal grandmother and uncle, and […]
