Spring

Weeds and growth near Lake Texoma, Texas

Some signs of spring growing near Lake Texoma. Spring in Texas can happen in February apparently.

Manhattan Bridge

This is probably one of the most photographed areas of Brooklyn, maybe all of New York, but I still love it. Taken just beyond Water St. on Washington in DUMBO. It was too foggy out on this day last December to see the top of the Empire State Building behind the bridge, but it’s still there somewhere.

Miami Beach

It’s a cold day in Texas and I’m missing the beach. Taken last fall during a business trip to Soho Beach House, Miami. A lovely place to begin working on a new project.

Tree Shopping

It’s that time of year again for the annual Christmas tree trip. Some views from the tree farm in East Texas earlier this month.

My Favorite View

Locanda

No trip to San Francisco would be complete without at least one fantastic restaurant visit. This time we took a Mission detour to a little Roman-style Italian restaurant called Locanda recommended by some local friends. Pictured is the radiatore with lamb ragu, a fantastically-prepared simple bucatini, lamb carpaccio and a few fried olives thrown in for good measure. If you’re in the area, this place is amazing and highly recommended.

Muir Woods Beach

Muir Woods Bridge

During our recent trip to San Francisco, we took some time away for an afternoon to explore Muir Woods. Well, as it turns out, with a sleeping baby in the back seat we decided not to risk disaster and actually stop to get out of the car. So our version of exploring was to drive around the hills and take everything in from within the car. Eventually, we did stop a bit to walk around on the beach area. Here’s just a few of the scenes along our stop.

Muir Woods Fog

Dub Dub

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending Apple’s 2014 World Wide Developers Conference, aka WWDC. (Although for everyone there, it is really aka “dub dub”.) It was an incredible experience. It was a whirlwind 5-day-long nerd sensory overload that left me energized, humbled and ready for a fantastic year. Here’s just a few photos snapped along the way.

Long Winter

It has been a long winter here in Texas. Well, long for us. Typically we’ll get a few weeks of cold but it seems this year like we’ve been bundling up for months. To make it more fun, we’ve had sick kids for weeks now and are finally looking to be coming out of the fog. The weather is warming, and we’re welcoming it with open arms.

This photo was taken as part of my daily walk with our almost-two-year-old. We walk past these sad little cacti struggling to hold on everyday; just waiting for spring to get here as much as we are.

Truck Yard

One of the best new places in town is a little city block converted to an outdoor eatery called the Truck Yard. It is nothing fancy, but they have great food trucks daily and a perfect little outdoor ambiance that makes you forget you are in the middle of a modern city. And of course, plenty of unnecessarily-over-the-top neon signs.

Sandy Lights

It has been a busy few months. Getting the chance to snap a few photos has been less of a priority than I would like, but alas, that’s how these things go. Nonetheless, I was walking around Klyde Warren Park recently just after dusk and caught a few of the city lights atop the sandy walkways of the park. Here’s hoping for a few more shots soon.

Painting

Putting a fresh coat a paint on our first home. And, of course, rocking out a bit while doing so.

Memorial Day

I’ve been taking some time this weekend to relax and enjoy life. It’s been a wild ride over the past few weeks, but things are slowly coming together.

Before getting back to the hustle and bustle of the work week we’ve been enjoying some of the simpler things in life. A sprinkler, cheap plastic pool and some chubby thighs in the backyard are all we need. Blessed.
