Days 12 & 13

I love finding beauty in odd places. The canal by my office is near empty and overgrown with moss, filled in with trash and misplaced items like an old lawn chair. But on the wall this vine grows:

Day 11: Something Fun

Today was Adams Morgan Day, a fun day where they shut down the major streets in my neighborhood for a huge festival with tons of art, food vendors, jewelry, crafts, and two music stages. One of our favorite days of the year! The background photo that is my blog's template is actually from Adams Morgan Day 2009. 

Hope you all had an equally amazing Sunday.


A week in Photos: Days 6-10

Day 6: Childhood Memory

 Remember fudgsicles? Sooo good! They were always a special treat. I found since becoming a grown up that I still have a tendency to buy a few things at the grocery store that are considered "kid food". It just makes me feel happy to eat these things and remember the good ole days.

Day 7: Something New

New scarf from World Market, freaking love that place...

Day 8: Technology

Day 9: Faceless Self Portrait

Day 10: Something I Made

We spent Saturday running errands in Arlington and stopped by the only local Chili's to enjoy an nostalgic lunch. It's crazy how you step into that restaurant and feel like you've gone through a space and time portal. I literally felt like I had stepped into the Chili's on University in Fort Worth, like if I walked outside it would be Texas in 2002. Our lunch was made complete with a chance to color a pepper for the wall - this is the best I could come up with.

Day 1: Self Portrait

So its day one of the photo challenge and I'm already having fun!

Here is what I look like this morning:

And no, that isn't actually a small Indonesian girl over my shoulder, that is my IFES wall calendar. IFES, the International Foundation for Electoral Systems, works to ensure free and fair democratic elections around the world. Pretty Awesome.

Can't believe it's Thursday, excited for another long weekend!
