A good day.
I spent a lot of time soaking in Charlie's perfection.
We hung out with Becki and Luke.
And I made granola.
And some kick ass potato soup.
You can tell how I'm doing by how much time I spend in the kitchen.
A lot = I feel fucking fantastic! I love cooking! I love eating healthy food!
Hardly any at all = The world is ending. Can you go to the store and buy me some candy?
Speaking of the world ending, my mom sent me a text message today.
Her first one ever.
She signed it "Love, mom."
I told her she didn't need to sign her texts.
But I secretly love that she did that.
I think I'll save that text for as long as I can.
Because it really made me smile.
(I'm enjoying doing this self-portrait project, even though I am so obviously a novice at it. These are the worst ones yet! No amount of editing could save them - they are just that bad. So let this be a lesson to you: don't make the mistake of thinking that you can just shoot haphazardly and then fix it in Photoshop later. Best to get it right the first time around. I'm still figuring out how to master the self-portrait. How do you get it right when you can't see what you're photographing through the viewfinder? I think it's going to take a lot of practice. But you know what? It's a lot of fun.)
