The way it used to be.

I miss blogging the random little things of every day life.

Alas, life has changed and it's hard to find time to do my actual paid job, much less write random paragraphs for fun. I shouldn't even be doing this right now. I am so behind.

I'll forget I just wrote that.

Tova is sick. She's been really lucky and hasn't been ill much during her first almost-year of life. Can you believe she's over 10 and a half months old? Ridiculous! She hates having her snotty nose wiped clean. She's a mess.

I turn 25 on Thanksgiving day. This is the first birthday where I feel any sort of emotion toward it. I'm actually growing up. Forget that I'm a college graduate, a wife, and a mother. No, the number twenty-five is what has smacked me up side the head (wow, that expression writes weird, hah!) I have to say, I'm pleased with what I've accomplish in a quarter of a century. If I can keep going at this pace, I'll have a very fulfilled and adventurous life. And I have the best partner and little munchkin to take along for the ride. Quite looking forward to it. Oh, and David is up to something for tomorrow. Not sure what's going on....

No more wasting time.

Mid-August through September (7-8 months old) are posted HERE now. A few favorites:

This one didn't end well. I was too busy taking photos to catch her. Those bruises lasted a while...

Film - Personal

I've been really excited about getting back into film a little bit here and there lately. It has been wonderful to play around with different cameras and relearn the basics of my art! I've done very little with film since high school, and back then it was all I did! I loved working in the dark room and find what I learned from hands-on developing invaluable to my photography today.

So here are the photos of us and some friends. So excited!

Taken on my Baby Rollei with Efke R100 BW 127 film:

Our lovely friends, Tommie and Alisa, and their beautiful little girl, Liliana. They have since welcomed baby Truett to the family.

Our garden on my Holga with Kodak Portra 400NC 120 film.

The rest were taken on a disposable underwater camera. They're from our trip to Sanibel and then a trip to Tallahassee a couple weeks later.

(for whatever reason, Flickr is keeping my original sized vertical photos as horizontals, but the smaller ones are flipped, so I'm using those. Not liking the inconsistent sizing, so sorry!)

Sanibel Island vacation

The night I got attacked by sand fleas. I counted 148 bites all over my body. David and Tova had about 5 total. Some of mine are still healing (those are so hard not to scratch!!)

:) Done posting for a little while.

I have a photo shoot or wedding every other weekend for a long while starting, well, last weekend. I'm excited to work some more, though juggling a breastfed baby with a mommy that doesn't like to pump can be interesting!! We'll get through and Tova's first birthday will be here before we know it (when regular milk will take over and I'll be FREE - speaking of, I need to start doing some research about that event!)

Tova turned 8 months old on Labor Day! Time is flying and Tova is growing so much every day. She crawls (still military-style) from one end of the house to the other all the time. Crawling to rolling to sitting and back is no big deal and she's pulling up to sit on her knees often. She's not pulling up to stand yet, but I'm sure I'll go in to pick her up from a nap any day now and she'll be standing, waiting for me. She crawls all over my office, which is interesting - lots of wires, papers, etc! Eick! She kept crawling up onto the shelf of the office coffee table and getting stuck, completely laying on it, so I had to put the shelf in the closet. She's determined and ridiculous and silly. We love her personality and fall in love with our family more every day.

Much love, K.
