This weekend was filled with a lot of firsts: croquet, lipstick, niçoise, and capturing droplets of water in a photograph. Even though I've been "taking photos" for a few years, this new digital photography class is teaching me a lot of things I would never have known otherwise. I've gotten to used to using my camera the same way for the past four years and it's really amazing to see that there are a ton of things it can do that I never realized.

I spent so much time alone this weekend. Some people might see this as a bad thing, but having that time to myself has been refreshing. I got to work on my photos at my own pace, read for fun, and spend more time with my ukulele. As much as I love being with friends and family, sometimes, it's just nice to sit back and feel yourself grow.


  1. I clicked on the link, wow a gorgeous shade!. Love your last photo, I will have to try that!.

  2. i was thinking about taking a photography class at a local community college to better understand my camera. i think now i definitely will!


  3. i love love love the croquet photo for some odd reason. it's so prim and borderline wasp-y, but hilarious. love it and all of your photos for that matter :) weekends spent alone are so recharging every once in a while, nothing to be ashamed of :)

  4. The first shot is amazing, as is the white tea pot!

  5. I LOVE that last picture! It sounds like a relaxing weekend. I need alone time like that sometimes!

  6. totally get what you mean about the alone time letting you grow. my b was gone at boot camp all summer long last year and i grew so much from spending time with me. who woulda known?

  7. Ah! I've got to play croquet this weekend!
