Playing With Light


My artsy boyfriend had such a blast taking these photos! The lighting was great, and he would direct me to move half an inch to the right, tilt my head about seven degrees to the left, etc.! So cute.  I am such a lucky girl to have such a supportive boyfriend! When I was going through all of the pictures we had taken, I made him sit through as I picked out my favorites and he picked his favorites from those and from those we picked the ones to make the final cut.  There were that many good ones! He is awesome and has such a great eye! I can't wait to get my Nikon and see how far photography takes him!


This morning I woke up and it was FREEZING and I just wanted to throw something comfy on.  I hadn't wore this dress in a long time, and as soon as I put it on I remembered how soft it was! And warm!  Ahhhh.  The perfect pick.  I couldn't decide between tight colors today.. I was going to go with red, but I'm glad I went simple today.  Sometimes you have to let the accessories do the talking, and this is definitely a statement necklace if I ever had one! I love that it's not obnoxious, however.  It says "Hey, I'm here, and I'm beautiful, and shiny, and know I'm all that, but I'm not going to get in your face about it."  


Tonight we are just taking it easy! I had a busy day.. work 4:30-8:30a.m., class & studying from 9:30a.m. till 4:30p.m., and errands after that. Patrick works at a marina and they have a boat show coming up so he's been working nonstop! It's nice to just relax for a while and sip some hot tea while cuddling up!
