veggie grill.

Sunday, September 20, 2009

have you ever been to veggie grill? it's d e l i c i o u s! definitely gives native foods a run for it's money!

on friday it was the perfect thing after a long afternoon of container store + ikea shopping with irv and pat.

meet the santa fe crispy chickin'!

irv says it tastes like real chicken. since i've never tried real chicken, i'll just have to take his word for it. i can say that it was delicious minus the guilty feeling (that i would have) about eating a chicken.

hope you had an amazing weekend :)!

last night i assisted chet on yet another amazing shoot.

this guy has had one tough life. you can't really tell from this photo, but his right leg is a prosthetic, he's missing part of his arm and most of his fingers and at one point in his life he was shot in the head.

super, super nice guy with an extremely positive outlook on life! makes you think...those little upsets in your (my) life don't really matter so much anymore. gotta remember to be thankful for all the many things in life that we take for granted.

day 'o disney.

i forgot how wet splash mountain could get :)! i don't think i'll ever get enough of this place..

lovely package exchange.

Wednesday, September 09, 2009

a few months ago i participated in a lovely package exchange put on by danni of the blog oh, hello friend.

i got paired with the perfect partner! meet amanda! she's also a photographer and she lives in socal (you can count on a meet-up sometime in our future - hopefully sooner rather than later!). check out her photography website here and her blog here.

i haven't had the time to photograph what she sent me. so i'm going to use the images amanda took (i hope you don't mind! :) plus i think her photographs make my packaging look better than it was in real life! if you want to read her post about our exchange click here.

here's what i sent to amanda:
  1. a heart brooch, hand sewn by me
  2. a cute bowl from anthropology
  3. hair pins from anthropology
  4. a postcard of one of my supersampler images
  5. pomegranate white tea - her favorite
  6. butterfly hair clips

here's some of what amanda sent to me:
  1. an amazing handmade journal she made
  2. camera sticker from redvelvetart
  3. adorable print from rosiemusic
  4. greeting cards from simplesong (i've been eyeing these!)
  5. bubble post-its
  6. air plant from pigeontoe
  7. polaroid album from lindseydee

thank you amanda! i absolutely love everything!

so next time danni hosts an exchange i recommend you join! you'll get to give + get some lovely packaged gifts and you may even make a new friend in the process :)

this morning i go out to water my garden and i'm greeted by this...did i water him too much?

the garden.

"From the ashes of the LA riots arose a lush, 14-acre community garden, the largest of its kind in the united states. Now bulldozers threaten its future. If everyone told you to give up, would you?"

i just finished watching the garden. definitely one to put on your must watch list. watch the trailer here.
