Photography

Warning: this post may be habit forming!

Today is the last day of January. I am happy to say that I have walked every weekday morning this month since January 3 (with only one exception) and most weekend mornings. I never would have thought I had time before work to take a walk, but it turns out it was just a matter […]

Winter Walk at Wood Lake

Tom and I walked at Wood Lake Nature Center on Sunday. This was our second time there, the first over Memorial Day in May 2011. There were no turtles in sight yesterday (they are in brumation this time of year, so I learned), but we did find an array of winter textures and a few chickadees.

A Very Happy Anniversary

Tom and I said “I do.” one year ago today. If a picture is worth a thousand words, I need not write any more. Our thanks to all who helped make this day so special, and to all who traveled to be with us in Michigan last September. Wedding photography by Kara Purtell, final photos by […]

Climbing Ariano’s Mountain

These photos date from July 11, 2009, so I’m a bit off in my date matching (today being the 18th). Early that morning Eduardo, my cousin Natasha’s husband, led us up their neighborhood “hill.” Tom, Ed, and the dogs made it up easily… I huffed and puffed and really wished I hadn’t been wearing hot […]

Birch, Almost-Black, and White

Happy Weekend! I had originally planned to share these photos, the inspiration behind some new ideas for the bedroom, in yesterday’s post—and then it got way too long. Here are a few people who probably got out on the right side of the bed this morning: Photo Credits: Left—Photography by David Land, styling by PJ Mehaffey, home […]

7 de julio

July 7, 2009. This would be our last full day in Cali before heading to Bogotá the following afternoon. We lunched on chicharrón alongside beans, rice, and patacones. In the morning I poked around the house a bit more, taking pictures of favorite details. My uncle Pedro “Perucho,” his wife Marta, and my cousin David came […]

6 de julio

July 6, 2009. Today the trip from Cali to Popayán and back is made easily in a day’s time. According to my aunt Stella and uncle Joaquín, it hasn’t always been that way. I’m sorry that I don’t remember exactly how long it took, and google is no help with reference to the route. Whether the […]

4 de julio

July 4, 2009. We were up early, had arepas for breakfast, and explored around the house—peeking out the windows, poking around the patio, and getting to know la casa on our second day in Cali. My cousin Juan came over around noon to greet us. After a visit to Juan’s house to find his wife […]

Wood Lake Nature Center (finally!)

Tom and I spent Memorial Day visiting Wood Lake Nature Center in Richfield (a first ring suburb of Minneapolis). The weather had been off-and-on all weekend and when it began to clear up on Monday we headed out, not wanting to wait too long… considering the sky might turn on us again. When we arrived our […]

Early Spring Minnesota Mushrooms

Hoping to catch the earliest of the season’s morels, Tom and I headed south last weekend in search of the Minnesota State Mushroom. As with any mushroom trip, the central goal — the one that we try to convince ourselves of over and over, as we continue to tote an empty basket — was to have […]
