Anyone Still Out There??

Monday, April 2, 2012
So that was a much longer break than planned... oops!  While work has been taking up a bigger slice of my time than usual, it's not the only thing.  I've tried to stay focused this tax season on not dropping completely out of my social life... and I think I've some what succeeded.  So, those have been my priorities while the blog has taken a backseat.  But good news!  Tax day is right around the corner (bad news considering how much more I have to do), so the blog will move up on the priority list again.

Here are a few things that have caught my attention during the break...

I Am a Food Blog (found via design crush).  Love the amazing photography and the editorial presentation of the pictures.

Have you heard of the Couch to 5K training program (yes, this means I'm admitting that I am so out of shape that I can't run 3 miles)? I first read about it years ago and started the program but at some point, got distracted and didn't ever finish.  Then a few years later, tried to do it again, this time making playlists that would keep me motivated and had indicators about when to walk and when to jog.  That stopped when I only made 2 weeks worth of podcasts (lots of work).  Well, now there's an app!  It's great and has motivated me again.  You set your music and then the trainer speaks over that telling you when to walk and when to jog.  Here's to hoping I can finish the program before we go to Florida in a few weeks!

After seeing this post on Backstage of Style Me Pretty, I was convinced that I wanted to get back into film photography.  Don't get me wrong, I love my DSLR but there's something that's so timeless about film photography.  I don't have the patience to exclusively shoot film, but definitely want to incorporate it when I think it's the right time.  So yes, Andy, this means that I'll be carrying around multiple cameras!  When I bought my first DSLR, I went with a Pentax as that's what I had always used for 35mm photography (and what my parents used to use!).  This is a time when I'm so glad I did that as I can use some of my lenses on both my DSLR and my SLR that I still have.  I also have a few toy cameras that I bring out every now and then.  So this weekend, I went out and bought Jonathan Canlas' new book which is wonderful, beautiful and quite helpful.  I love the book and I especially love supporting Jonathan as he took our wedding photos which I adore.

And then of course, there's the new season of Mad Men.  This is really the only show that I'm 100% into and I'm so happy it's back (although I should have rewatched the prior season as a refresher as my memory just isn't that good and 11pm is a little too late to stay up on a Sunday!).

PS - A special thanks to those that missed me.  Sometimes I feel like I'm just talking to myself (and my mom... hi mom!), so it's nice to know that others enjoy T&V as well.  xo!
