365: week fourteen

Week fourteen of my 365 project! whew, is it sad to say i'm slightly impressed i've made it this far? er, maybe my expectations aren't high enough for myself, heh. just taking it one day at a time - enjoying the stretch! honestly, however, it's really not too hard of a project to keep up with at the end of the day.  sometimes i do have a hard time coming up with interesting things to take photos of however. it really is a skill - cultivating eyes to see beauty and intrigue in the ordinary.

Wednesday: photo ninety-one: ask me what the soundtrack to my childhood would be? i would promptly answer with "enya". oh lovely enya. her music truly was the soundtrack and essence of my younger years. the carefree days when i would create to simply create. when i just was - i knew how to just "be". i think when you're younger you know how to just "be" more so you're more alive, you know? 
i came across the old cover to my first enya cd and looked through it, reminiscing. it brought back a lot of memories and creative dreams. and just for the record - i still adore enya's music! 

Thursday: photo ninety-two: apples, cinnamin and stevia. they're reallyreally good together. it's like making an ordinary snack into something a little more special (interpret: dessert-esque) with no harm done. and who's not a believer in making the small things count? :)

Friday: photo ninety-three: the edge of my comforter. 

Saturday: photo ninety-four: the days of oversized sweaters and fuzzy socks are quickly slipping away. this makes me sad. so i'm getting in as much last-minute usage of my comforting happy clothes in as possible! no, i'm really not a fan of summer's clothing. 

Sunday: photo ninety-five: marilla. her silhouwette looks fierce and tyrantical (and she likes it that way).

Monday: photo ninety-six: going outside i pick blades of brightly hued grass and assemble them into a shape... complete it looks like a dandelion. the loveliest kind of weed.

Tuesday: photo ninety-seven: the other morning as i groggily grappled for morning's first coffee i was struck by a sight outside my kitchen window... a deer, so very close: staring as much into my eyes as i was into it's. the deer made a run for it soon after, making it's way to the side of my house and into the woods too quickly to catch it in a frame. instead of the deer i found my dog contently watching out the window in the aftermath. not as unoridinary as a deer, but a happy sight nonetheless. 

Wednesday: photo ninety-eight: 
flips flops and tan lines and bare feet. the sun is fierce and the air is getting heavy. summer is indeed on it's way. happy-sad about this. :) 

also, do you guys enjoy it when i put the photos super sized? or do you like them as they are in this post? i'd love to hear your thoughts on this! :) 

thank you for looking! 


  1. I grew up with Enya, too! :) Definitely makes me nostalgic about the carefree days of my childhood.
    I like when the photos you post are the size in this post. It helps frame them better so that I can see the entire image. Also, I can still click on them to see them a bit larger. :)

  2. Indeed! :) Thanks so much for the feedback - that really helps me out. My instinct said that the extra-large photos where too big - however I also thought perhaps it was nice to see the depth and detail and really get the "feel" of each photo when they were very large.

  3. Oh yeah, definitely. You are welcome. :)
