Hello, friends! I hope you all had a great weekend!
One of my goals for this online space of mine is to get into the habit of blogging regularly, so I’m starting with a weekly photo. Nothing too elaborate or planned out; just one snapshot from a moment during the week that I’ll try to share on most Sundays.
I upgraded my DSLR camera body to a Nikon D7200 from my 7-year-old Nikon D60 recently, so this will also give me a good excuse to practice my photography more often. I’m enjoying my new camera, and I’m IN LOVE with my new lens—a Nikon 35mm f/1.8G (this one to be exact). I used it for this Sunday Snapshot, and I’ve rarely taken it off my camera body since I got it. It’s amazing.
My sleep schedule has been out-of-whack now for a couple of weeks, and I can’t seem to get it back to normal. You’ll see what I mean in an upcoming post. ;) So when my little bear gets up especially early in the morning after a night that I go to bed especially late, this happens. An iced mocha, fruit and a delicious savory breakfast crêpe on the patio of my favorite little coffee spot. Because early morning is about the only time of day you can do some patio sittin’ during a Texas summer and actually enjoy it.
I thought it would be fun to throw a piece of C’s cereal on the ground so he could see a nearby bird snatch it up to eat. That was until he wanted to feed ALL THE BIRDS and was tossing as much cereal as his tiny hands could manage. Followed by hysterical laughter every time a new bird came over to join the party. Except his throwing skills aren’t the best yet, so the cereal was practically surrounding us. At one point I felt like I was close to recreating the pigeon lady scene in Home Alone 2, but thankfully there were two kids at the opposite end of the patio who started offering up more appetizing food.
I love our little outings and his sense of wonder. A morning spent laughing in the fresh air, sharing breakfast with the cutest date, was just what I needed to wake up.
And no truer words have ever be printed on footie pajamas. I don’t know if I can put these on him again … I feel like I jinxed myself or something!
