It’s snowing… beautiful little white flakes of snow falling ever so gently outside my window, making me feel excited for the upcoming holidays. And here I am playing catch up with posting my daily photos. You’ve seen perhaps January, February, March, April, May and June. If not, click on the months in the previous sentence and it should pop up. Now, it’s November on the calendar and July on my computer. Celebrate a little warm sunshine, blooming flowers, beach scenes, lobster and fresh berries. And then get back to the snow. 🙂
“In the summer, the days were long, stretching into each other.
Out of school, everything was on pause and yet happening at the same time,
this collection of weeks when anything was possible.”
Let me tell you this. My work — my personal work that’s just for me — takes a back seat to almost everything. What a shame, right???! And this year my personal work is greatly comprised of my 365 project … one photo every day. I’m loving the shooting part but boy, it’s the processing after that bogs me down! So here we are in November — one week until Thanksgiving — and I’m posting for … wait for it … May!!
In addition to, or perhaps complementing, my project 365, I incorporated a weekly photo excursion to Maine lighthouses and other iconic settings that I had been wanting to capture. Every summer seems to go by in a minute, so this weekly date (a.k.a. self-inflicted assignment) caused me to be intentional in how I spent at least one day out of my week. My friend Joanne joined me for what turned out to be a whole lot of sunrises with a side of breakfast. You’ll see our first two trips this month …. Bug Light and Spring Point. Both lovely. Couple them with the beautiful early morning light? Pure joy!
So, better late then never, yes? Enjoy, and feel free to share and/or leave me a comment.
“I knew this much: that there is objective time, but also subjective time…. And this personal time, which is the true time, is measured in your relationship to memory.”
Thanks for catching up with me! Contact me to schedule a session, coffee or a chat!
Thursday throwback to April … what a lovely month! It began with an Easter parade in New Orleans’ French Quarter, birthday celebrations with my wonderful sister, crawfish, grandgirls, and I discovered my love for ranunculus — these gorgeous blooms that resemble something between a rose and a zinnia, but grow in a wild way similar to tulips after they’ve been in water for several days. Apparently, I love a beautiful mess. We ended the month in New England via Birmingham, Savannah and Hilton Head, where pansies and popcorn awaited us! Such a fun month … enjoy!
Thanks for coming along on this journey with me!
April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.

March Madness. It comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Well, it definitely came in like a lion as I was scheduled for a flight from New Orleans to Portland on March 2, only to have it cancelled because of a Nor’Easter. L O T S of snow. So I flew out two days later, was here for two weeks, and guess what … two more Nor’Easters hit. Yowza!
So here’s my merry month of snow, beach, crawfish, scrabble, knitting, nashville and the Grand Ole Opry, and just basic madness … in pictures. #playingcatchup
