Life These Days

What have I been up to? Well, besides hanging out with CD and Summer…

I’ve been spending lots of time trying to figure out my new photo editing software. Adobe sent me Photoshop Elements. Honestly, I have NO IDEA what I am doing, but I’m having so much fun learning how to edit photos. (Disclosure: I received Photoshop Elements for free, and I was not reimbursed financially to review the product.)

Notice a difference? The photo on the left was edited in iPhoto, and the one on the right was edited using Photoshop Elements.

The program is fairly user friendly, but there is so much to learn. Alas, if only my body didn’t require sleep as I think I could stay up all night reading about and watching video tutorials on photography and photo editing. To any photographers out there, please don’t hesitate to share your tips with me – I need them, as I someday hope to take beautiful photos just like these ladies.

What else?


I’ve been Rockin’ The Pigeon and doing more yoga. Yesterday, my friend Jill and I met up for yoga and yogurt. We took a restorative class at Steadfast & True Yoga. Lots of shoulder openers which I totally needed, and the studio itself is so beautiful. I want to live there.


I love exposed brick walls and warm sunbeams on the floor.

And Sweet Cece’s on a hot summer afternoon is always welcomed…


Oh, and I got my hair chopped and thinned. It helped lower the frump factor.

I carried my camera with me yesterday and snapped random photos…


This was in an alley outside the yoga studio. I liked all the different lines happening.

What have you been up to, and do you like to take naps in sunbeams?
