well, this year i am going to take myself out to do something special… and in honour of my mother {since i look just like her} and her birthday, i thought i would post these silly pics of myself… Continue reading

{the dichotomy of audrey michelle}

14 Jul

first of all, i just want to send a quick shout-out to all the newcomers… i’m always humbled whenever a new follower joins the fun!  welcome to food and foto and thank you for your support! ❤

i just love this shot from the archives, taken by my friend michele when i first moved back to colorado in 2011… it’s been 3 years, almost to date.  i do love parts of this great state – especially the mountains, the peaceful sound of the nothingness in the air, and the sunsets.  however, there is such a dichotomy to my personality.  i miss the city – the hustle and bustle, the lights, the diversity, the people.

i miss new york more than i ever thought i would. it’s kind of funny how i always say i went there to pick up a piece of me…. and yet – i feel like when i moved, i left a piece of me there…

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.}

mepixie-1

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

schwepps-1

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.

image

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. 😉

image

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

image

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…

deer-1

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

sopris-1

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

image

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

image

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

overit-1

but it’s also annoying… especially in april.

the end.. for now.

have a great weekend, ya’ll! ❤ 😉

 

{whatever wednesday – foto love}

26 Feb

snowlove-6

nothing makes me happier than when i’m taking pictures.  nothing makes my soul shine brighter and vibrate higher than when i have a camera in my hand. i am at my absolute best when i am capturing the world around me, through these eyes, through fotography.  creating memorable images is what i do best. i am in love with fotography, and it is in love with me.

fotography is my absolute passion in life.

snowlove-18

snow, however – is not. but we are working on establishing a healthy symbiotic relationship…

{foto friday – i miss this hair, this moment, and this part of lower manhattan}

28 Jun

missing new york and hair long-enough to pull in a ponytail…

menyc-16

i’ll get there soon… it’s growing sort of fast{ish}… okay not really at all.  and i hate to blame it on colorado but i do… my hair always behaves funny here and it’s nothing like my east-coast hair…

whatever… sigh.

and on that note, have a great weekend!  mercury is retrograde, in case you didn’t know… there is lots of information out there for those of you interested in reading more… just do a search.  and be patient as you may encounter delays as per the very essence of MR.  even as i typed this blog, my keyboard kept freezing up.  and my music was skipping… haha.

one day i’ll talk about how i was born under MR.  it’s rare, as am i… and usually i can articulate myself a little more effectively when mercury is slowing down for those few weeks every 4 months…

aaannnyway, enjoy the weekend!! 🙂
