I must admit that I am really enjoying putting together these weekly photo recap posts. It challenges me to think outside the box with my photography, especially on days where nothing very photogenic is happening. Here’s what last week looked like.
I decided to theme the photos this week with a more muted, faded photo style. I liked the cohesiveness of the photo set overall but I still prefer the vibrancy found in natural light.
The sun popped out in the afternoon so Jason and I decided to take Ellie on a mini-hike.
I have been dying to go camping. We had planned on going at least 3 different weekends and each time has been derailed for one reason or another. Hopefully, we will make it out this Memorial Day weekend.
This was the week of the half bun. I dig my haircut so far but I need it to grow a wee bit longer before I can successfully pull off the look sans bobby pins.
After my day at the office, I met Jason at his work in Canton before heading out to see a screening of Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. If you’re interested, I talk about my feelings on the movie on the latest episode of my podcast which can be found here.
Cosmo joined Ellie and I on our midday walk. He was so excited he slobbered all over himself 🙂
My neighbor has a few indoor/outdoor cats and while I’m not generally a fan of furry felines, I often become hypnotized by this one’s eyes.
Later on it was BACK to Canton for a little Happy Hour event Jason and I were invited to. Here’s an exterior shot of the beautiful building Jason works in.
It was bright & sunny on lunch so Ellie and I played fetch in the park. The faded photos give off such a different aesthetic in bright sunlight.
Jumping is Ellie’s #2 favorite thing to do (eating is of course #1.)
The nice weather continued and I finally got to go out for a bike ride.
Somehow we were back down in Canton again on Friday. We made dinner reservations and then headed into the bar Bad Decisions for a quick drink. To my surprise they had a Pimm’s drink on the menu. It reminded me instantly of our time in England.
We had dinner at The Fork and Wrench – one of those hipster warehouse/farm-to-table places and it was very tasty.
Afterwards we met up with our friends and enjoyed a bonfire late into the night.
Saturday was typical. It rained all damn day so we spent most of it inside. Later on we cooked a big beef stroganoff dinner for Rob & Jess.
Then we headed out to the movies and I spotted Maltesers! These just recently came to the US. Mmmmm
My Sunday was super productive. I went for a run, attended a webinar, finished all of my laundry and did all the meal planning for the rest of the week. I felt damn good!
Ending on such a positive note made me really look forward to this week ahead. Hopefully I can keep up the productive streak and get some big stuff done!
What was the highlight of your week?
