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.

Picnic

This past week we enjoyed a nice picnic and concert outdoors at the Dallas Arboretum. I’m still amazed at what a beautiful oasis that place is in the middle of the city.

Warm Up

The spring has arrived in Dallas. The leaves are starting to come out and brown is turning to green. We’re enjoying many trips to the parks these days and of course snapping a few simple photos along the way.

One Year

This week was the first birthday of our baby girl. It’s been a crazy year with its ups and downs, but we wouldn’t trade it for the world. We capped off the birthday celebration with a big party today including this homemade triple layer cake just for her. Happy Birthday baby girl.

Christmas

It has been a wonderful Christmas week here in Dallas. We’ve had the first “white” Christmas in a long time, made some great food (cookies and fresh lobster) and celebrated with friends and family.

Merry Christmas to all!

Verde Camp

I spent the past few days on a business trip to Austin. While we were there we stayed at the lovely Verde Camp houses. Before breakfast one morning I snapped a few shots quickly of this scenic and quaint area. If you’re in South Austin with a group of people looking for a great place to stay, this is it.

City Park

We spend a lot of time going to the various parks around the city of Dallas lately. It has been a warm and sunny fall and the walks through the neighborhoods keep our constantly growing, crawling, and trying-to-walking baby girl happy. I caught this shot right before sunset walking through the trails of one of our favorite spots in town.

Winding Road

I’ve been going back through some of my archived photos lately and stumbled across a few that I never thought much about before but suddenly am enjoying.

This shot is from a few years ago somewhere on one of the many winding roads of Kaua‘i, Hawai‘i.

Peppers

We’re in the midst of a second growing season before the end of the fall here in Texas. Needless to say we were a bit surprised to find these little guys growing in the backyard so late in the year. It took all of maybe 5 minutes before we threw them on a hot grill. Delicious.

Offscreen

The third issue of Offscreen Magazine arrived on our doorstep a few days ago. For those that haven’t heard of it, the folks at Offscreen are putting together a fantastic little semi-regular publication for and by the digital creators of the world. It seems slightly ironic that some of the finest design, writing and thoughts in the Web community are presented in the timeless print format.

The design is beautiful and carefully prepared. The photography and articles are simply fantastic. And the whole concept is just refreshing. If you work or play on the modern Web, pick yourself up a copy today.

Kick Off

Finally. The 2012 NFL football season is under way. What better way to start off the season than with some homemade grilled Buffalo wings? I can’t think of one.

Cheers!

Fresh Pack

I’ve been going through these like they are going out of style lately. I love what the folks at Field Notes are doing, especially with this latest edition, and it’s always good to get the latest pack in the mail.
