Sometimes a look back at soft, summer pastels is a nice way to pass through the dark days of January. Our warm winter continues but by this time of year the short days start to wear on me and I dream of long evenings outside until 10:00 pm enjoying the sunsets and visits with good friends.
Like this weekend in September on Decatur Island with Ryan, my friend Suzie and her daughter Naiah taking senior pictures. Ryan and Naiah have been friends since daycare and we’ve shared more than a few vacations here in Suzie’s family cabin by the beach so when I got the chance to have the two of them together for official portraits I jumped on it. They were great sports and we walked all over the island finding favorite locations and making new memories.
I you’d like to see Ryan and Naiah as little ones on Decatur take a look at one of my first posts here 6 years ago. Forward
As for me this week has been a rush of working a few extra hours before attending to a long overdue matter followed by a stretch of enforced downtime. I’m not one for quiet hours on the couch, or naps during the day so the thought of two weeks of doing nothing has been more than a little worrying. I know plenty of people dream of something like this but I’ve actually been making lists of activities I can do while still following instructions and resting. If anyone has a great book to recommend or a tv series/movie that I need to binge watch now’s the time to share!
As with past year-long photo challenges I don’t plan to post here every day, I’ll save that for my Instagram and Twitter accounts, but you faithful blog readers will get one weekly recap every Sunday.
