I sometimes wonder if Iâ€™ll ever be a good blogger.
Not for lack of content or words, but in practice & discipline.
Fingers crossed Iâ€™ll try.
That is, try to collect myself & make it easier to combine letters with pixels.
Iâ€™ve been shooting a lot more with my phone.
Itâ€™s interesting how it challenges me to take the very simple elements of photography to a more inspired format.
The limitations become stepping stones to achieving in-camera satisfaction.
Light & composition are vital, as they ought to be.
I feel less pressure & travel lighter.
As youâ€™ve seen through the last sporadic posts, Iâ€™ll probably use it a lot more to keep up with non-commissioned work.
I canâ€™t tell you how many DIYs, recipes, or moments with my kids will be trapped on hard drives that will never be shared publicly.
Not because I canâ€™t access them, but because after I shoot & edit tens of thousands of pictures,
I amÂ completelyÂ unmotivated to touch my own.
Here is a little treat Iâ€™ve been enjoying this week.
Itâ€™s so nice when you stumble across a recipe & realize you can make it with what you have on hand.
Even if you must sub a few things here & there.

I just caught up on Season Two of Downton Abbey & since I watched it in one week, I feel lost without more episodes.
I also have a tendency to hear myself think in a pathetic mimic of a British Accent.
Someone please tell me this is a normal side effect.
I hope itâ€™s not too early to start seeing hearts for Valentine’s Day. I’m not opposed. â™¥

Love the new look!
After watching Downton, I always find myself transported to their world at random moments of the day. : )
I’ve always thought you were a very talented blog writer. I really admired your blogs back in the myspace/facebook days…it challenged me as an english major – especially since I always felt you were a much better writer than me and all I had was a piece of paper to show for it…LOL
I miss those days…but I would never trade living a [real] life outside of social media and finding all that life has to offer. But that’s just me…;-)
Thank you Alli! I am getting sad that this season is almost over!
Jaclyn, wow, thank you. I feel really honored for you to say that! Writing has always been a very big part of me but I definitely wish I made more time for it! I think making everything quieter has been so healthy. I’m glad that we at least had a childhood without all the distractions!
