This week on Totes Awesome Channel, we chat about our favorite blogging moments.
Alan and I have officially been together for 5 years since Monday. He is now the longest relationship I’ve ever been in! Loving the color combination of the roses he bought me.
Bob has learned to hold still when I have the camera in his face. I call this one, “Bob the Basket Case”.
On Tuesday, I met Anita up for a delicious happy hour on a patio before we went to a The Minimalists SXSW meetup. Colin Wright of Exile Lifestyle was also there and I immediately found myself crushing on him! Anyway, I have been reflecting on the philosophy of minimalism and I really love it. I like the idea of really owning our belongings and not have our belongings own us. This weekend I plan on going through my belongings, starting with my massive DVD collection, and scrutinizing the value each item brings my life. I already feel liberated just thinking about it!
Still reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed.
I am loving it so much.
I’ve been pretty addicted to Instagram lately as my favorite mode of creativity. It has always been my dream to learn photography with a fancy camera. I’ve decided to take that more seriously in 2014 and maybe purchase a used DLSR. For now, I experiment with composition via Instagram.
When I took the above picture from the work parking lot, I wondered if deer ever charged at people. Next time I will inch even closer!
