end of the week ten: vol. 3

Untitled

Hey there week. You sure did bring some crazy: cleaning out all the stuff, a trip to the Goodwill, my car bumper getting a little too personal with a parking garage column (not by me), and a million and one other things. June, you’ve been something crazy. From the high highs to the low lows, it’s time to catch up, refocus, and continue on the adventure of living my best life now. But while I wait for that to happen, a random sample of the internet for you.

  1. A friend has coerced me into a month long squats challenge (read: she posted on Facebook). Day 3 and I’m already sad. But if you want to follow along, I’m doing an amateur hour version c/o Fitness Magazine. Because #hipsurgeryexcuses
  2. Loving this Cup of Jo article on people who skip certain wedding traditions (which in my opinion, is a lot of them) — also, if you’re bored, there is also my favorite CoJ article ever
  3. Another week, another article about the ballet. This one on how dance partners create chemistry amongst themselves
  4. I love Max Wanger and his print shop is having a sale through Sunday (6/25). Just another reason to spend some dollars and cents
  5. Being super obsessed with all the collabs around the release of Despicable Me 3 — mainly with luggage one with Away
  6. Trying to find a bathing suit top that fits the, ahem, girls. Lucy and Ethel love some support and these options from Lilly & Lime look pretty great (this article from Bustle has a few sneak peeks from a new launch)
  7. Planning to make frybread after reading this Food52 article
  8. Also learning how to host like a Parisian. (Also care of the good folks at Food52)
  9. Taking this Buzzfeed UK quiz and never getting 100%. Ya’ll coming up with the top 100 girls names is hard
  10. Apparently there is a whole sketchy market around San Marzano tomatoes…also, like Champagne, they are only considered San Marzanos if they are grown in a very specific part of Italia

Three days before the big day (aka hip surgery) I finished out my 2016 photo season with the wedding of Nat & Anna. After having a rainy engagement session, we were gifted with a beautiful day in PA/DE on a farm that has been owned by a member of Nat’s family for…well, quite sometime. They got married with only their closest family in a tiny chapel (formerly a spring house) and I couldn’t have imagined a better way to close out a season.

wpshoots // a mini stroll in the park

About two years ago, I had a family reach out about doing a mini-session at the National Cathedral. They had a new wee one, he wore a jacket with bear ears on the hood, and he was all smiles. Fast forward to this fall and I got the great opportunity to hang out with this family again (and wee one #2 who recently arrived). I love being able to see new family members join and to watch the littles grow up year after year.
