i have had so much i've wanted to say here lately, but i am finding it difficult to find the time to sit and focus on this place right now (hence the short random posts). for now i am keeping those unsaid things in the forefront of my mind to share at another time (if they remain relevant).
today, was a busy but relaxed day.
my mom came over for a short visit and let me run to the post office alone. that is a chore i avoid at all costs. especially with two little ones. it is not worth all the bundling, buckling, and bribing to drive 5 miles (on a road under heavy construction) to stand in line for who knows how long (2 seconds to 30 minutes) to hand over a box. no. i will hold onto said box for as long as it takes for me to get to go it alone, thank you. (so thanks mom!)
but while i was there i picked up this:
i will be going back for more. i don't know why i bought just one. i love fun stamps. it makes sending and receiving mail more fun. and more personal. maybe i should take up stamp collecting. hmmmmm. . .
also, while the little ones napped i spent my afternoon taking some shots of some newer sculpture by matt. this task is much more difficult than i prefer it to be. if i could find a class that specializes in photographing sculpture, specifically bronze, i would sooooo take it. in the meantime, i will just take around 300+ pictures and hope for the best. here are a few of my favorite shots. to see more you can check them out here.
