summah time

Well, I've been terrible at keeping up with just about everything these last few months. Not that I was ever very good at updating this here blog... oh well. Haven't been up to much lately. I did take photographs at a friend's wedding, and then I also got to take pictures at another friend's henna event! 

I'll be back... hopefully within the week, but probably within the next month or so. Haha.

outtakes: couples yoga & pure barre brookline

Hello hello! I have been running around all crazy-like for a few days. I'm sure I'll post more in detail about the other goings-on in my life at the moment, but for now, just look at some pretty people in sort-of-pretty pictures! :) 

Right before Valentine's Day my wonderful models (aka my friends) willingly let me take photos of them showing off some of their couples yoga moves. It was a lot fun, as you can see!

And then this week I got to take photos at Pure Barre Brookline! The studio just opened, and you know I LOOOVE Pure Barre! I had so much fun playing around with the giant mirrors in the studio.

outtakes: the beginning

I got to play around with my fancy shmancy camera a little bit today! It was fun.

Alrighty then. I'm going to leave it at that. See you later!

*EDITED TO ADD: My lovely model is wearing all lululemon!

snow day fun

Bob has a snow day from work, so I insisted we go grocery shopping at Trader Joe's. Yes, we are "those people" who show up during a damn blizzard and buy pineapple juice, a giant baguette, and cheese... then head out on our merry way.

I took my camera with me, because I am totally obnoxious. And then I made Bob take pictures of me jumping and pretending to do yoga. Yep.

my one-sixths birthday!

I didn't have a party on my actual birthday in December, so my beautiful friends indulged me A LOT and let me celebrate a "1/6ths Birthday Party" this past weekend! And they let me wear yoga pants, too! Good times were had - lots of (maybe too much?) alcohol, lots of dancing and foosball, and lots of laughter. Thank you for coming out and celebrating with me! I love you all! 

I... don't know...

We ended up shutting down the bar at Mass Ave Tavern, like a bunch of crazy college kids. Woot woot!

it's always sunny in philadelphia

Philadelphia Museum of Art

On Sunday, I took a whirlwind, 24-hour trip to Philadelphia to visit one of my best friends! We walked all over the city so I could see the sights, like the Museum of Art. Look familiar? It's from Rocky #... I forget which one of the bajillion in the series. But I wanted to run up the steps, just like in that famous scene! My parents are huge fans of the original movies (as in, not Rocky Balboa).

With the 'Rocky' statue!

Then we went to the Flyers Carnival! I was finally surrounded by THOUSANDS of people in orange and black Flyers gear. Yes, I know. I live in Boston. With all the Bruins/Celtics/Red Sox/Patriots fans. It's fine. I can deal with the heckling. Anyway, the carnival raises money for charities and non-profits in the Philly region. Fans can pay for autographs and photos from their favorite players - current and alumni! 

I found my people!

My friend and I made a beeline for Sean Couturier's autograph booth. He's my favorite Flyers player, and I came armed with my very own Couturier t-shirt for him to sign. Once it was my turn, I completely panicked and started acting like a 13-year old girl. I giggled, shouted "I LOVE YOU!" at him, and then ran away. Not one of my finer moments, but probably very amusing for everyone else around me. 

Waiting for Coots... 
Philadelphia City Hall

I also got to try my first-ever authentic Philly cheesesteak! It was delicious and greasy and basically everything I'd hoped for. Overall it was an awesome trip! My only regret is that it was so short! I promised my friend that I'd be back for a longer trip during the spring or summer. Next time I want to see the Liberty Bell!
