{it’s another “my week in fotos” update}

19 Jul

hey gang, how’s your week been?!

people kind of freak out when they find out i’m not on instagram. part of me feels like i should be, since i’m a fotographer and all… but honestly, just keeping up with my blog is time-consuming enough. i left facebook over a year ago, and i don’t plan to go back or add in any new social media to my life. i started this blog so i could keep all the happenings of my life in one place online.  thank you to each one of you who follow, read my posts, comment, engage, and make it all worthwhile! 🙂

here are a few pics from my week… i hope yours was great and your weekend is even better!



i had a “moment” with my favourite coffee barista this week – i walked in to get my half-caff americano on ice and he greets me with a smile and says, “the usual?!”  i giggled and said, “awww, i have a usual – and you remembered it!”  hehehehee


i’ve been eating these yummy buffalo taco boats – and i can’t wait to share the recipe!


double rainbow over mount sopris…


i’m so jealous of my cat… who sleeps {sometimes in awkward positions} 80% of the day…


these have been breakfast all week…


love this snowmass sticker i saw on the bus – 81615.


i’m constantly reminded of my former coworker and friend, yarrow… it grows pretty wild here!


selfie in the sun… it’s finally feeling like summer!!!


this is what i see on a typical monday night…


i met this adorable tabby at the bus stop one evening… i named him “gary” – he was so sweet!

    Hey Audrey,
    just read this post and was wondering {as a fellow photographer}, do you find it beneficial not being on FB, IG, and other social media sites? I’m having some second thoughts about the whole enchilada it created in my life. It seems to me I am constantly online updating all accounts I have.
    I love your blog, btw. The layout is super cool!

      hey katarina. i love your name, first of all. and thanks for your comment and for reading!

      to answer you simply – yes, i do feel that leaving FB and being social-media-free has benefits. personally, it’s just given me more freedom, as i found myself continually wasting time on FB and/or feeling like i was trying to sell myself to my so-called “friends.”

      i never signed up for twitter or IG or anything else for personal reasons. even wordpress annoys me with the ads/spam sometimes, but i suppose that’s just part of being online these days.

      it really boils down to me just being a purist. i don’t like to spread myself too thin in any aspect of my life, and i feel with the ever-growing social media world constantly and pervasively in our faces, it can be quite the challenge to balance the real world and the virtual world. so – i just unplug as much as i can. 🙂
