The desire to be perfect

I can slowly sense that this blog is going to be a bit of therapy for me. As I re-read some of my posts from earlier this week, I think to myself "that was silly, dumb, spelled wrong, not interesting, imperfect." I am not perfect, I've never claimed to be- yet the blogs I read seem so calculated, so precise, so perfect.

I find myself drawn to other's blogs for many reasons- mommas, completely different lifestyles and choices than me, great photography, the little drama in our lives. One in particular is of a mom.... I enjoy her blog, and she misspells many, many words. I've been tempted to comment to her in a constructive sort of way, since it effects that way I feel about her... and then I start this blog and think- wow. Blogging is a brave new world. One that anyone can see, anyone can comment on, anyone can suggest edits. Yikes.

So here goes something... to blogging and being imperfect... to living in the moment and putting myself out there (and hitting spellcheck before I publish!)

Love Thursday

Things I love:
New episodes of Grey's Anatomy- too bad no new one tonight
Crockpot dinners- Dinner was ready when we walked in the door!
Reading my blogs in peace
My boss being out of town for 2 weeks!
Coffee with a friend/co-worker
Getting excited for our Europe trip

Things I miss:
Tre- our big black mutt

Babies in the future

I started reading blogs about 2 years ago, but just about 1 year ago, I started my diligent daily reads. Most of the blogs are by moms... who would have thought that I'd be interested but it's intriguing to me. I can't wait to be a mom. I can't wait to be a babywearing momma. One blog that I read, Fina Drea, does reviews and she is giving away different baby wearing slings. Well, I am a mom- to a great dog and a cat - hence a photo of our animal.

Superhero Photo Challenge: Find a Face

I've been so excited for the photo challenge since it gives me something to look for out there in that big crazy world. It's a homework assignment and like antique shopping, the thrill is in the find.

I found this unhappy little artichoke muncher. Enjoy!

PS. Today was quite possibly a pefect Sunday. Dog walking at the SPCA this morning, quick bites at home (cheese and walnuts!), farmers market, walk with the dog, cookie dough and orange snack and a nap- with my Sibley resting her precious little head on my legs while the hubby read the paper, fire ablazing.

Oh Saturday....

A sunny day, spent in Law of Non-Profit Class. Went for a walk and then took this... of my loving, crasy, mullet head husband.

My first picture attempt- Take Two

Let's see if I can get this puppy figured out...I'm trying to add a picture taken at The Crucible last week at their Fire Fashion show. What fun and photography! It was the first time I was asked to sign a release for photos and even got a fab "PHOTO OK" sticker. Not quite official, but I'm milking it for all it's worth.

The beginning of a love story

On Love Thursday, I am beginning what I hope will be a photo blog... to write non-witty things about my life and encourage creativity within by encouraging me, a devout blog reader, to take a step up and blog, with pictures. Here goes something...
