Anniversary, Part II

So, a week later, I’ll finally finish posting what Husband and I did for the rest of our 5th anniversary celebration.

Saturday, we went to the Guthrie Theatre following our time at the Sculpture Garden. They allow you to give yourself a little tour around the building, or you can get a guided tour for a price. Since we’re all about The Free, we did the self-tour. It really has some amazing spaces. I take it back. Unbelievable spaces.

Here are a couple of my favorite images:

And this one highlights their very reflective window sills on the 4th floor. Only the part in the middle is an actual view to the outdoors.

We ate dinner at a fabulous little place called True Thai (We had “B” on the appetizers, the Purple Yam, and #57, the wok-fried bean-thread vermicelli.  Overall, we gave the restaurant 4 out of 5 stars for incredible service, friendly staff, and very tasty food.), and then went to a Saints game with my father-in-law and brother-in-law.  Anja’s first outdoor game!


Wowza, Internet Peoples!

Thank you all for your overwhelming support–the comments, the emails.  You guys are so kind and encouraging.

I posted some photos of someone besides my daughter today, so if you’ve already requested a link and have it, go check it out.  For those of you who missed my last post, if you would like a link sent to you, either comment here that you’re interested in getting it or shoot me an email.


In other interesting news, my daughter fell down the stairs today at the sitter’s.  I was NOT happy, and had to scurry out of there before I started crying.  Her sitter told me in a very nonchalant way, which:

A. Made me concerned that she should have been MORE concerned and called me at work to let me know

B. Made me less concerned because she must’ve thought Anja was alright

What would you have done?  Bawled her out right there?  Anja only has one more week with this sitter and then she’s on to a new daycare, and since it’s only 1 1/2 days each week, Husband suggested I keep her home next week and he’ll take the extra half day off work to watch her himself.  Is that wrong?  Will it convey unforgiveness to our current sitter?  They don’t have a gate at their stairwell, so I’m just concerned that it could happen again…

A Little Project

Hi friends!

Long time no…write!  I think this is the longest I’ve gone without posting.  It feels awkward.

Anyway, the reason is, I’ve been working on a little project.  Actually, a big project.  I’m kind of embarrassed about it, because I don’t feel like I’m good enough to be “in the big leagues” yet, but I’ve started a photography business.  I have a new blog (since I can’t afford my own .com yet) where I’ll be posting favorite images, including those of some lovely folks who have helped me during my portfolio-building stage.

All that said, since my identity is somewhat secret on this blog, and I’d like it to stay that way, please email or leave a comment if you’d like a link to my new blog.  I’m fantastically excited, nervous and hopeful all at the same time.

I’ve long wondered, “Lord, what do I want to be when I grow up?”  I’ve been wondering that since high school graduation.  And…I think I might have finally found an answer.  Of course I want to be a MOM, but in order to be able to stay at home with my little peanut, some cash money needs to be made, and this photography stuff?  I’m addicted.

Thank you all SOOOOO much for your helpful support up to this point, and I will always, always appreciate your constructive criticism.
