Haze and howl.

Smacked down with a jagged little head-cold. Some bits from my phone, remnants of my desultory search for spring …

A mark on a lamppost.

My new friend R and I went to the Royal Botanics a few weeks ago. I haven’t been in a photo-taking mood for a while, but I took my dSLR just in case. Of course I forgot my macro lens and my tripod, so I got fifty blurry shots of pretty blooms and bees doing their thing, and then this one.

So yes, I am a walking cliché.

You probably already know that I am excitedly participating in Project 365, taking a photo a day for a year. But what I am really excited about is that four of my favorite people are also participating! Here are their photos for the first day of 2012 …

Where the year went.

One whole year of marriage already? How can this be possible? You’d think we had spent the last twelve months planning a transcontinental move or something.

Post-move, time seems to be slowing down a bit, which I appreciate because I want to savor each moment with my husband. (Will referring to FunkyPlaid as “my husband” ever get less thrilling to type?)

I had this great idea to finally post our wedding photos as a first anniversary gift. Due to some technical issues and my own rampant obsessiveness, this gift took a little longer to deliver than I would have hoped, but it is now finished.
