Because I Can

I must warn you all in advance that this will be a very picture-heavy post.  My mom took these photos for me, and a lot of them turned out really well.  I just couldn't decide!

A lot of bloggers take photos out in the middle of the street.  I would give examples here, but I can only think of one, which is not a very strong argument.  So just take my word for it.  Anyway, I've always wanted to try it.  I think my mom thought I was crazy when I told her I wanted to stand in the street to take photos.  She said "Why don't you stand near the garden?  Or in the driveway?" (That is not verbatim, I don't remember what she actually said.  It was something along those lines.) And I insisted that I stand in the street.  Thankfully, no cars came.

Then my mom (who is not a trained photographer) said "I have an idea!  Go pick up that leaf!"  So I did.  Hey, it was my mom.  I can't really say no.  It was very nice having her to take my photos.  Sometimes I get sick of standing in front of my tripod and waiting for the self-timer to go off.  Having a photographer is wonderful.

I wore this outfit yesterday to Friends Meeting.  My mom's side of the family is Quaker, so whenever we're in town we go to meeting.  It's very nice and I enjoy it quite a bit.  Afterward, my mom and my uncle and I went to Panera and had lunch, while using their wi-fi for 2 hours.  Then we had a wonderful dinner at my grandparent's house with most of the family. 

This picture is merely to show of my creative scarf skills.  I love infinity scarves more than anything in the world (seriously) but I don't want to commit to sewing the two ends of my scarves together.  What if I decide I don't want to wear it as a loop?  Hmm?  So instead, I've taken to just knotting the two ends together.  It leaves the scarf super full and fun.

  1. quite genius, actually with the tying the scarf together! seriously. i love the outfit...the colors and patterns work well together!

  2. love the dress, the whole outfit is so fun and colourful. wish we had a target in the uk! your mum did such a great job. I often take pics in the street, I would love to go nice places to take pics but mostly this isn't possible, so the street does just fine :)
