My Week Through Instagram: Week Twenty-Seven & Twenty-Eight

Here is post two today: this time I'm recapping weeks twenty-seven and twenty-eight of my Instagram photos. I am so excited to be more than half-way through this project of a photo a day. And I haven't missed a day yet so I'm proud of my progress. Are you doing any kind of daily photography project? How is it going so far?

Sunday: These pink blooms are prospering this summer. The trees are all around my neighborhood and a few are in our backyard. It's like springtime in summer.

Monday: A morning cup of chai tea. Yum.

Tuesday: I go through cycles of what I enjoy for breakfast. Right now I'm loving vanilla greek yogurt and granola. The cute Anthro bowls make it even more enjoyable. 

Wednesday: I shared this DIY project on the blog, a how-to for making your own gold air plant terrarium.  It is super simple and air plants are the easiest things to care for.

Thursday: We watched fireworks from our house this year. One show we could see from our front yard, another show from our deck in the back. I liked this shot of a single firework with the street lamps.

Friday: Spent the evening catching up with an old friend that I haven't seen in years. This included live music at a local outdoor music festival. It was my kind of evening.

Saturday: Someone has a sweet, old yellow Volkswagen in my town. Lucky!

And now for week twenty-eight:

Sunday: My teacup when it's all gone.

Monday: I love our local library. Actually I'm quite partial to all libraries. They are so special to me. And I love the smell of old books. Is that weird?

Tuesday: I picked up the classic Walden at the library. I have never read it. So far the pages are enlightening and quite the inspiration for a simple and natural life.

Wednesday: My Mom found this set of notebooks with this cute leaf graphic and she let me have one. I will always take a fresh, new notebook. I am a bit of a notebook hoarder actually. I have a handful in my desk that have yet to be used. A crisp, new notebook holds such possibilities don't you think? It's kind of magical. It is just waiting for you to fill it up with treasures.

Thursday: Brother came home for a few days. Whenever he is here the house is filled with music: he sings, plays guitar, standup base and piano. It is beautiful and comforting. I like having him home even if it is just for a bit.

Friday: Washi tape! This is just a small part of my ever-growing collection. My friend Nic just recently discovered how fabulous it is and now he knows how addicting it can be. Do we need to form a washi support group?

Saturday: I visited Unique LA's summer show yesterday in Santa Monica (fantastic show as usual!) and then got an early dinner with David (brother) in Silverlake. He is looking for an apartment out there currently. We stopped in at Food+Lab on Sunset. Perfect restaurant, my kind of place. Simple design with some industrial details, welcoming vibe and delicious food. Be sure to visit if you're in the area.

So that concludes my month-long recap for today and now I'm all caught up.

My Week Through Instagram: Week Seventeen

Ya, so I'm finally getting around to blogging this week. Not doing too good so far but I have double posts coming at you today to make up for it. First I'll start with my recap of last week, week seventeen of 2012. Last week was nonstop wedding preparation for my big deadline coming up and I'm finishing up little things this week too. The end is in site and I cannot wait to see it all completed and be able to turn it over to my bride. I'm so happy with how things are turning out.

Sunday: I decided to start the day off right and scramble up some eggs with red peppers for myself. Freshly squeezed orange juice too. It was so yummy! And it really doesn't take that long. I should do it more often.

Monday: This is a mini peek at a project I'll be able to share with you all soon. Do you recognize that font? It's my new favorite thing: Jacques and Gilles!

Tuesday: Busy days call for easy hair. I threw my locks up in a top knot for ease while working. My hair has gotten so long (it hasn't been this long in years...it's usually around shoulder length) and it occasionally gets in the way of things.

Wednesday: Some days a mid-day cereal treat is in order. And then other days a cinammon cereal treat is in order.

Thursday: I cut out this little vinyl heart and stuck it to my studio window. It looks like my heart is floating off in the sky.  

Friday: These are the menus I designed and am currently putting together. The food for this wedding looks quite delicious so every time I read it I get hungry. 

Saturday: On my walk I looked up to see these little airplane streaks. They were so vibrant in the deep, blue sky. 

So that was my week seventeen. What did yours look like?
