Allison | 2014 Senior

It was a wet, cold, and grey day, but that didn't stop us from trekking out and doing our shoot. Allison is one of the girls, along with Grace, who volunteered to model for a project of mine. I haven't known her very long, but as a fellow homeschooler and Doctor Who fan, she gets extra cool points right there. :)

Grace | Portraits

This is Grace. She is one of my oldest friends and is going to school in a land far, far away. :) Her spring break was timed just right so we were able to get together while she was in town for a shoot. It was so great to see her!

Chocolate Chip | food photography

During our first round of being snowed in, I decided it was time to do some baking. I was split between trying a new cookie recipe and making bagels from a recipe I had used once before (an excellent one, by the way) . The cookies won out, due to the instant gratification; I didn't have much patience due to my cabin fever. I went to one of my favorite blogs, Smitten Kitchen and found the "favorite chocolate chip cookies". For a twist, and because I have a thing for peanut butter (natural only, please), I threw in a spoonful for a nutty note. I was really pleased with how the cookies turned out.

In Like a Lion | currently

// flower photos from last spring //

Woah, sorry for the radio silence guys. I didn't fall off the earth, if you were wondering. :)
Sitting down to write a few blog posts was a task that kept getting pushed aside. I've been working more and battling a cold that's decided to hang around for 10 days (and counting).

"In like a lion, out like a lamb."

The first of March always conjures up images of flowers, sunshine, and general springy-ness. However, though today has been the mid 50s, we're preparing for yet another round of snow and ice that's supposed to move in tomorrow. I'm prepared with my store of tea, blankets, knitting, and a giant stack of new books from the library, in case we get iced in without electricity. If the saying is correct, this month will end with better weather than how it began. Here's hoping!

reading lots of books / drinking vanilla chai black tea / wearing my new western boots / knitting scarves / doing yoga (or at least attempting to) / consuming too many cough drops / working on photography stuff /

What's new with you on this first day of March?
