a slight obsession

can any obsession be slight?

hi everybody, how’s life? it’s been a while cause i just couldn’t rationalize blogging when i had ‘responsible’ things that had not been attended to!  but today i talked to my dad who said mom’s been checking in and getting no blog love. at that moment, my self imposed sequestration came to an end!

i realized that i put way too much ressure on myself so i’m just going to take what’s in front of me and as i tried to vow to do this year, remember the day with a post.

while taking breaks from work i’m also taking pics here ad there. i love having flowers around and got tiny ranunculus thinking they’d be sweet and easy to deal with. since they got here, their beauty has been beyond distracting. i started shooting them  between the drudgery of work and watching them bloom. their luscious gorgeousness is impossible to capture but i loved trying.

suffice it to say they’ve been an infinite source of inspiration and i just couldn’t stop shooting them from every angle for the past couple days. now that i’m posting these i can relax and just enjoy them. hope you do too.

have a great nuit guys, more tomorrow!

hi guys! i’m out of hibernation for the next few minutes! it’s been a very long time since i had any time to myself and just made a deadline so now i can sit back for a minute. as much as i avoided blogging, it’s the first place i run when there is time to spare!

cracking the whip

hi guys! i have only a milisec before my computer dies and/or claudia forces me back to work. we have lots to prep for tomorrow but i wanted to do a quick post.  claudia helped me arrange the shelves and liz had the idea to hang the chandi by a dowel between the bookcases.

i’ve been wanting to do this wall and especially the nooks for so long but just couldn’t motivate. sometimes it takes friends as we all know! i took a couple vignettes but have a lot more to fit into this day so gotta run.

more soon, have a great day!
