Day 10 & 11 of the 31 Days to a Better Photo Series

Day 10 was all about understanding the light meter; a pretty basic lesson to me.

Day 11: Fun day! Today I use everything I’ve learned in the previous┬álessons to take some photos in manual! To challenge me, I decided to use my parents Scottish Terriers as my subjects. Scottish Terriers are so hard to take photos of. They’re so dark and usually just look like big blurry shadows in photos (plus they move all the time so that doesn’t help). I shot these at ISO 1600.

Ladies Weekend: Fun & Food

This past weekend I drove the 4 hours up to my old college town to connect with my 2 best girlfriends. It was really relaxed. We chatted, drank wine and had an all around good time together. My friend served a variety of delicious cheeses and made us some giant bratwurst for dinner to get the party started.

Saturday involved hangover breakfast, a coffee date, boutique shopping, afternoon antiquing and going out for drinks and burgers. Responsible over 25’s still take selfies right? PS. Love you guys!


Can Jean make me hangover breakfast every morning?

Check out this beaut! I found it while antiquing for quite the deal!


And now, after a fun weekend, I’m ready to detox both my liver and eating habits and get on the Super Shred eating plan! I’ve got my grocery list and meal plan ready! Here’s to the next 4 weeks!
