With Thanksgiving coming up, I thought I'd pop in to say I love my kids and husband. I'm glad I get to be a stay at home mom, and I'm glad I get a 30 hour work week in December to help pay for Christmas shopping.
I am struggling with a lot right now, though. I'm working on being thankful for more.

My life has been wonderful since Miles was born. I feel like (although I have las patience than before) I love my kids mor than ever. I love the feeling that newborns bring with them, sometimes I rub my whole face on his tiny head. I think it'd has something to do with chemistry and evolution, who will ever know. All I do know is that I love my kiddos. I took two years of of full time parenting to be a cake decorator and it was worth it, but I am SO glad to be back.

In other news, I got a part time job at a bakery, and it looks like I'll be putting half my take home pay (or more) into daycare. I am planning on giving this job at least 3 months, and see if they bump me up to full time, or if I can find some reasonable daycare options. If I can do neiter I am going to try to work for a daycare, or go back to being a home-maker.
It's really too bad because I am REALLY looking foreward to this job. This is the kind of job I would have jumped at before I had a kid.

During this photography 365 project/challenge with James I really feel like I have had moments of brilliance. Lately, however, I have had fewer and fewer of those and all my photos I feel are subpar and definitely not something I am proud of at the end of the day.
Lighting, of course, is my main obstical, as I imagine it is for many photographers. Other than that, how I can I be a more consistent photographer? Any tips from anyone? Do I just need to take hundreds of photos and not stop until I have something I am truly happy with?

Some of you may know I am crazy about free samples, and here is one I got recently. A beautiful slate cheese platter that I think is put to good use to display just about everything. I love the contrast that dark backdrop brings to the table, no pun intended.
Today I made Schar Gluten Free white bread. I must have 1. made it wrong, or 2. needed 2 packages to make a good sized loaf. The flavor was pretty awesome, though. I had two pieces; one with cinnamon and sugar, one with roast beef. The rest is just chillin' in the freezer.
Thought y'all might wonder what I'm up to. Photographing food.
Also, as always, mischief and no good.
