Daily work with my camera

That's on of my goals. I haven't been vigilant about it over the last few months. I've decided that I'm going to spend the end of this year boiling down my priorities--trying to figure out where to spend the copious amounts of time I now find on my hands. I know that photography will loom large in those priorities so I'm choosing to devote myself more heartily to it now. And to unabashedly share the images I capture. That last part? That's the hard part for me.

So! Today we have 'Things you'll find in my kitchen.' The rose is one of three miniatures now in the house. Two are down in the television room and one sits in the corner of the kitchen on a chair I fell in love with in my apartment. While I like roses for all the typical reasons, I mostly love the way they play with light. It never becomes old for me to look at them. Yes, Michael. That is a hint.

The herbs sit on what is now my favorite table. It will be our table forever! It is a gift from Michael's parents and it's prefect. But I'll tell you more about it later. The herbs are part of my quest to have the kind of kitchen where everyone hangs out. The kind that is always warm, has a pot of hot water on the stove and inspires conversations about daily events and life choices. Some of my favorite books are written about Cornwall and they always seem to have a cozy kitchen filled with life. That's what I'm cultivating. One Ikea herb pot at a time.


  1. Love it! I want to come hang out in that kitchen!

  2. I saw your gorgeous rose photo on Facebook last night. Is your Mom on FB now? Should I send her a friend invite? Do you think she would accept?
