3rd anniversary on the 3rd of November

I have been married to this handsome guy for 3 years now. It’s wonderful.

(I know this isn’t a great Polaroid by most standards, but I love it. It perfectly captured the moment for me. The end of the day look, under the soft yellow of our bubble lamp. I’ll get better at the Polaroid taking, but I’ll love this picture for always.)

the Ferris wheel

My very first picture taken with my new Polaroid SpectraSystem. Mark gave me this gift a few days early since we were planning on going to the fair with friends on the 18th. I had high hopes of riding the ferris wheel and marking off #16 but the line was really long, and it was getting late and to be honest, it wasn’t the nostalgic looking, quaint Ferris wheel that I was hoping for. But, I captured a picture of it. And I rather love it. I’m sure to most photographers and especially Polaroid photographers it isn’t spectacular, bit I think it’s wonderful.

#1 off the list.


birthday pictures!

a gift from a coworker

flowers that magically appeared on my desk Friday afternoon
The post-it says 4 more days!

The first birthday present, given Friday night, for reasons that another post will show.
This is a Polaroid SpectraSystem that Mark found for me on Craigslist. I’ve been wishing for a Polaroid camera for a while. Apparently the couple Mark bought this from was a dear sweet older couple and the camera is in mint condition!

Birthday present #2! A lovely green (wool) coat from one of my favorite local shops Bliss.

Excuse the blurry picture, but for some reason I really like this picture.
Probably because I love the inside of the coat and my dress!

Birthday present #3 from my in-laws!
We bought a KitchenAid for the kitchen renovation and my in-laws
happily gave me the ice cream attachment. Hooray!

And we ended the evening with a birthday cupcake from the Cakery.
Yay for birthdays!
