{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!

grazing cattle at sunset…


my beautiful edible-flower mixed-green salad…


this sweet red tabby kitty i met on my walk home…


this yummy wild rice dish i whipped up – with onions, tomatoes, and fresh english peas….


a penny i found between my feet…


this amazing bag of chocolate peanut butter cups that a coworker so kindly bought for me…


this beautiful… whatever it is…




have a great weekend, gang!! ❤

hey gang.  hope you are all doing well.

this week was a rollercoaster as far as emotions and happenings go.  and the only rollercoasters i like are the ones i build on rollercoaster tycoon and pretend ride.  and i’m actually serious about that, just ask my former roommate and still one of my best friends… he’ll tell you about my non-love of rollercoasters or things that go fast, in general… like waterslides. :/

nevertheless, here are a few happy highlights from my week via the shake-it app… {still my fav.}


i went pixie, again!  i love it; brings out the new-yorker in me – and i just feel more like myself this way…


i happily spent a ridiculous 75 cents for this little cute bottle of club soda.  i saved and reused the bottle for my liquid vitamins… i just love glass and i just love tiny things! 😉


it “sunny snowed” this week – and i am amazed my iPhone was able to capture the little flakes.


on that same day, my boss let me borrow his sunglasses ‘coz i forgot mine and he insisted they would make me cooler… i insisted that wasn’t possible. 😉


and despite the friggin mercurical weather, i planted my seeds…


and i hope to god they do not end up looking like this {clearly} genetically modified apple. i mean seriously, have you looked at conventional produce in the last couple years? it’s like that movie “cloudy with a chance of meatballs.”  — the food is getting abnormally large!  am i crazy or should an apple NOT be the size of two of my fists!??!?!  i digress…


i had several very intense and wonderfully silent moments with my “neighbours”…


then there’s mount sopris… which just makes me happy for existing.  and – i applied for a job with this view. uhm, yes please!


this is where i currently work – it’s kind of like going to heaven every day – only with more people 😉


and sometimes snow doesn’t piss me off… cuz it’s pretty…


but it’s also annoying… especially in april.

the end.. for now.

have a great weekend, ya’ll! ❤ 😉

21 Feb

…to capture the beautiful things that happen in your life…

and may i add – THANK GOODNESS that i have the capability to take pictures of life’s – shall we say – “precious moments” 😉


like when my cat totally curls up in my arms for 3 hours while i watch a movie on the couch…


or when i catch a glorious sunset…


or moonset… 😉


or when i’m wondering a trail on my lunch-break, and have a meaningful moment with nature…

have a great weekend!

Matt and Emily's Wedding

i love this foto mostly because it totally evokes so many emotions for me — i remember this day so well… and i can be whisked away to exactly this moment in time again when i look at this foto… i can just close my eyes, and i’m there…

the pleasing aroma of the rain, the sound of it dancing on the rooftop above my head, the glare from the determined sun somehow still shining through it…

it was a very magical experience, this moment… and i had a camera with me!
