This Weekend (in pictures)


Phil found this beautiful flower randomly growing in our backyard. Any ideas what it's called? A friend introduced us to our latest iPhone game craze: Stunt Biker. Phil discovered that our stick biker friend had a pumpkin head in honor of fall. On Saturday, Phil and Jaye went to the library while I did some errands alone. I love doing errands alone. Saturday night, we celebrated Chris' 30th birthday with our friends Chris and Laura. We ate frozen pizza, red velvet cake, and ice cream. … [Read more...]

Photoshoot and Photoshop


This post could be alternatively titled, "How to stage a photoshoot at Restoration Hardware." For Valentine's Day, I'd had this very specific image of a photo I wanted of Jaye. Her in her gorgeous pink dress in the perfect romantic chair with just the right feel. It was going to be awesome. The only problem was that I didn't own any such chair. But you know where such chairs do exist? In stores. So I dolled Jaye up and headed to the mall. We stopped at Crate and Barrel and Restoration … [Read more...]

A Picture a Day: April


March got skipped because Jaye deleted the app halfway through and lost the pictures (Babies love smartphones), but here's a mini picture glimpse into our April. … [Read more...]
