The August Break

Look, I know I've been a terrible blogger. Which is particularly awful because I've had such a story-filled month. But I plan to make up for it. I am participating in The August Break (see badge and link to the right). I plan on posting photos five days a week throughout the month of August, at least one photo a a day. And hey, maybe I'll even tell the story behind that photo, like a real blogger would. I think a lot of the participants in The August Break are really accomplished photographers, but between my terrible picture-taking skills and my equally terrible camera, I do not fall into that category. But hey, I'll give it a shot. And I want to publicly say that I think Lisa, who is actually a good photographer, should participate too!

in the blink of an eye

two days old

Third birthday diva

Some days, it feels like you got here only seconds ago.

But most days, it feels like you've been here my whole life.

I am beyond proud of you, and love you more and more every single day.

Happy 3rd Birthday, Jane!

one of those lame picture entries because I'm too tired to write actual words.

You guys, I just had one of the busiest weekends of my life. Opened and closed CHICAGO, went to the wedding of one of my oldest friends, and worked the raffle booth at a charity road race. I took today off to recover, and I was like a zombie all day. I know I totally suck a blogging lately, so I'm hoping a few pictures from my weekend will buy me more time to string together a few coherent sentences. Soon, I promise!

100 Things: 16-20

And the list goes on....

16. My favorite color is purple, and has been since I was in elementary school. My friend's 9-year-old son came up to me the other day and told me he could guess what my favorite color was, and did so accurately, based on the fact that my bathroom is all purple. : )

17. I have little-to-no-interest in home decor. However, I want my home to look nice. I just want someone else to do all the work for me.

18. My number one favorite movie is Jaws. I love this movie and have seen it a million, zillion times. I also will admit that I liked Jaws II, but the other sequals are for shit.

19. I sprained my foot 11 times in the span of two years when I was a kid. Even now, my right foot has a weird bump on its side.

20. I have never played any organized sport (shocking, I know). However, I took tennis lessons once. But I quit.
