Hey guys! I feel like I start every post commenting about the snow... But it certainly has taken over our lives hasn't it? We have had a big week over here at casa Peres/Pettinato. Pedro's sister, Laura, arrived from Rio just before the massive storm last Saturday. We spent the weekend/week in the kitchen - cooking up delicious meals, visiting with friends, and doing yoga. It was a great visit. I'm hoping that when I look back on this year, I think less about the snow, and more about the happy memories that we have created.
I don't know if you follow me on Instagram (if you don't, you can find me @photolexx), but I've been completing a 365 Project. I wanted to challenge myself to create a photo diary, and actually photograph something every day. I am 51 days in, and I have to say, I'm loving it. It's been so much fun curating the images in my feed, and actually thinking about what I am shooting. It's also been an interesting experience using my iPhone as a "real camera". My SLR isn't always the most practical option, but I've always got my iPhone on me - so there's no excuse to not take photographs! (Though I've also been forcing myself to use my SLR more frequently.) It's just a really low-key, enjoyable project. It makes me super happy that I have really been embracing the things that I love lately.
Check out some of my adventures below!
I guess you could have just looked at my Instagram feed, but that's not really the point of the project. I liked putting this grid together. It was so nice to go through the photos and remember something special from each day. Maybe I will create a book at the end of the project :)
OH! I finally upgraded to Adobe Creative Cloud, Yosemite OSX (on my laptop), and iOS 8 (on my phone). And finally set up my iCloud account so it functions. Wow, it feels good to have entered the world of 2015 technology. Was feeling a bit left behind there. Everything is running smoothly now, and it is GREAT.
I also finished putting together my first post for Mass Musings! It comes out on Monday. So check back (here + there) for more info on that soon. I will be posting about yoga + travel a couple times a month.
I'm off to eat a late lunch smoothie bowl + get on my mat. Rachel Brathen (@yoga_girl) just released a whole bunch of yoga videos with Gaiam, so I am about to give a couple of those a try. Then it's off to an izakaya date night for Pedro + I (OMG it's our 6 year dating anniversary this weekend <3)! Have a good one.
Until next time - peace, love and groovieness,
