Around Here: May 2017
Happy May! Another month has just about flown by once again and we are already near the middle of the year already! Below are some items that have occurred around here in May!
-I finally FINISHED the body of work and draft copy for my long-term photography project! There were many times, along the way, where I never thought I would ever get to this point as there have been many moving parts to this project, which has been an enormous undertaking. At times, it was difficult to keep the faith and not succumb to fear and doubt, and trust that the pieces would eventually fit together, even when I could not see the forest through the trees. However, I am glad that I kept going and pressed on, over the past nearly four and a half years. I still have a ways to go to usher this body of work into the world, but I am really happy to reach this point.
“Increasingly, the work I’m doing is in service to an idea rather than just to see what something looks like photographed. I’m trying to explore how I feel about something through photography.” — Sally Mann
-our pools open this weekend and we are looking forward to a long weekend together including time at the pool (weather permitting) and going to a bbq!
–Victory is all ready for summer and she loves and she is ready to eat yummy food her Daddy cooks on her Big Green Egg, pictured below!
-enjoying date nights together!
-enjoying time together outside. With the warmer weather, we have been taking more walks outside, and Victory loves the walks while she rides in her Hound About!
-continue to work on getting fine art prints made, framed, and hung in our home, an ongoing endeavor!
-finished our gardening for this year and we finished getting our deck furniture ready to use to enjoy the nicer weather!
-we are getting all of our house windows cleaned next week so that we can see out of them again!
-enjoying many snuggles with our fur girl, Victory, who is currently recovering from another urinary tract infection (UTI). The medicine is helping her, as she is prone to these infections, that we battle a few times a year, it seems. She also had another bath this month, which she never enjoys, but she smells and her fur feels so good after the process is complete!
-we finished the final season of Rectify.
-watching the fifth season of The Americans.
-finished reading Devotion by Dani Shapiro, a really good read!
-listening to a myriad of podcasts, especially, at the gym!
-achieving 10,000 steps most days via my Fitbit!
-continuing to make incremental progress on our ever-growing to do list!
Happy Friday! Wishing you a nice long weekend!
