in just 14 days we will have a teenager…it’s exciting. 7 days before that we are having a costume party for our girl. we are excited about all the friends that will be here to celebrate with us, including the ones who will be traveling from TN. we have started some prep for the party…birthday banner up, triangle banner and felt circle garland are hung too. our girl set up the birthday ring yesterday evening on the table. on her 13th birthday we will be dropping her off at camp http://www.etusc.com/ 6 hours from home for the very first time. she will have a friend with her, i’m sure they will bond even more at camp. she is going to have a blast! what a summer we have had so far!!

I got really excited when I saw a roll of this Portra 800 in the store some weeks ago. It was one of those rolls that you almost carelessly shoot through current rolls to get to. It may just be the places I buy my film, but I’ve never seen a roll of Portra 800 before. So needless to say, I shot this entire roll in about 4 hours over 2 or maybe three afternoons. I was most excited to see if I could capture a greater range of the wonderful near-evening tones of light that only summer days can provide. In my opinion, the 800 didn’t disappoint.

Last night I hit up a local watering hole with a good friend to catch up on life, layoffs & reinventing yourself. We had a blast sorting out all of our issues, the good, the bad, the hilarious, over a pitcher of beer. Shortly before leaving, I caught this image of the couple directly across from us. Looks like they were sorting out a couple of their own things last night too, and it was all good! Don’t you think?

I’ve been pondering on how much stuff I’ve accumulated. Too much stuff.

I feel so much better knowing that his teddy bear is going too, and his daddy, but still, it’s the teddy that makes it all seem alright.

    These are beautiful pictures. I especially love the one of the couple at the restaurant/bar. What a great idea to capture moments. I was just taking pictures of my 3 month old today (2nd child). Time is going so much faster with him, I don’t want to miss anything!
