Photography 101


I thought the Grammy's were incredible! You are absolutely right...Janelle Monae is seriously gorgeous and I love the suits. It's like her face is so pretty she has to balance it out out with masculine clothing. Anyway, so many good performances! One of the many I enjoyed was the "Jolene" rendition by Norah, John and Keith (despite John Mayer blatantly reading the lyrics off the teleprompter!).

Um, yeah I still don't what to say about the egg. Stupidest thing ever? Incredibly awesome? I want someone else to decide for me. I did like the yoke outfits.

The curtains are beautiful! Light and airy but I feel the pattern gives your room a lovely extra layer/dimension! Also, I like the height you chose to hang the curtains. I struggle with that, and so I think I might just copy you on this one, mmkay? Also, I think you are doing a great job drawing the eye away from the AC unit with all the books. Here are some more ideas. I can totally see you wrapping it in pretty paper!

So this weekend Nick and I rented a lens for our camera from Adorama (surprisingly so cheap!). One of my goals for 2011 is to learn how to take photographs. For now, I won't tell you which ones I took and which ones Nick took... but check 'em out:

Top to Bottom:
  • Our new rocker and sheep blanket...aka Nick's new favorite place to sit in the apartment! (The blanket is from the "Need Creation King"). What do you think of the chair on our folksy area rug? Too much contrast?
  • Billy's Bakery cupcakes. I don't care if cupcakes are out. THESE. ARE. SO. GOOD.
  • Nick and I made homemade ravioli for Valentine's Day...
  • ...and brushetta!
It's so nice to have the time to learn a brand new skill and I've got so many ideas for photography -- it's almost overwhelming!


Ps- I re-watched "It's Complicated" this weekend. HAHA! It's really funny. Really funny. This is one of my favorite scenes! And, I want her house. That is all.

Pps- Happy Valentine's Day to you, too! Love you, Bestie!


  1. Does it seem like John Mayer is going through a Johnny Depp phase? I'm so over him (JM, not JD).

  2. Yes! Nick said the same thing about Mayer. I was never really into him, so I am with you. But their voices sound so great together!
