Today was another day where I only did about a half-day of work (lazybones!). I had planned on taking this entire week as a “staycation”… but ended up working about 20 hours or so instead. Oops.
But I was determined to complete one of the many projects on my to-do list: building a book of all of the photos of Ezra’s first year. Well, not ALL of the photos (ahem), but a very edited version. If I can keep my act together, I hope to do this every year, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves, eh? I think it’s so easy for photo prints to get lost in the cracks, and I can’t imagine that in 15 years I’ll still know where all of these digital photos are or how to access them (other than my blog). So an analog book was high on my list of priorities. I’m old fashioned like that.
And what does this have to do with that photo up there? Well, as you can imagine, there was a lot of digging in my archives today, and I found that one!
Remember back in August when Minneapolis St. Paul magazine ran that feature of my dog photos? They asked for a photo of myself and Magda to run with the piece, so I set this one up in the studio and had Jamie snap it for me. Then I sent it off in my email and flew to Kansas to take care of my mom. When I returned, I found the email with the photo stuck in my outbox, and it never made it to the publication and never ran. So here it is! Ha!
