Since it's been a while since I've blogged, let's catch up quickly...let's see.
A photo I took for TROHV (DC Location, www.trohvshop.com) appears in the September 2011 issue of the Elle Decor magazine. How did this happen you ask? A while back when TROHV was about to open, I emailed and offered to photograph anything they needed because I loved their store so much and also so I can practice. Months after that initial email, they wrote in April and asked if I had a wide angle lens and if I was available to take a couple of photographs of the store for a chance to appear in Elle Decor. A special thanks to ICM for buying a wide angle lens with me!!! Sometimes things work and it feels like it was meant to be - the day that they needed the photo done was basically the ONLY day that I could have done it that week as we were having the biggest work event of the year. I was so excited and nervous about not doing a good job. After an hour or so in the store I turned in a few photos knowing that there is a chance it might not make it but it didn't matter because it was such an enjoyable experience. Even after I found out it'd show up in the September issue, I made sure not to get too excited just in case they changed their minds. Well, September is here...and the photo is in the magazine :)! It's kind of neat to see a photo I took appear in print...but the most overwhelming feeling is really thankfulness for being given that opportunity.
Over the past weekend, ICM and I went to Oberlin, Ohio to celebrate his awesome grandma (Addie)'s 95th birthday and we enjoyed wonderful summer weather. For her birthday, there's a tradition to grill out at a nearby state park - fresh peaches were brought, sweet corn grilled with basil and butter, burgers and healthy turkey hot dogs were grilled, and there were 2 cakes. Happy Times!
