What a wonderful city Boston is...from the historical Freedom Trail to Mike's Pastry. I got my first taste of real Boston cream pie and it was even more delicious than I imagined. The history was so rich, the weather so very wet, the leaves were just beginning to change, Harvard was breathtaking, the shopping in boutiques was delightful, the "T" was an adventure each day, and along the way we encountered the nicest people. I learned that a Dunkin' Donuts can be found on every street. Our umbrellas were our constant companions for most of the trip, on the last day when the sun started to peek out we appreciated how cozy and fun the rain had made our trip.
My Great Aunt Betty celebrated her 8oth birthday today. She was curious about the photo on the cake, so she just put her finger on it and was so delighted and a bit surprised when it turned out to be frosting. She was presented with a beautiful scrapbook put together by one of her daughters and at the end was something Aunt Betty had written about her earliest memories. I found it so sweet I shared an excerpt below.
...but I remember when I got close to home I knew that I was going the right way, because I saw my mom standing on the back porch washing her hair in the rain water. She was singing, that meant she was happy.
What a treat it was to be invited to see this little dancer in action today. She did a bit of tap, ballet and gymnastics. Today was bring-a-friend-day for the students but it also seemed all the parents brought friends and grandparents, too. It was quite a challenge to capture images through the glass, video cameras and beaming adults, but definitely worth it for these sweet moments.
Now that the kitchen is officially being updated I am itching to update everywhere, most especially with new paint colors. I picked up some paint samples to think about, I always love the names of the colors, sometimes just the right name will win me over.
Pam has been working on some ideas for my mark/logo. Last week we narrowed down the font, which I really love. I am so excited to have my professional identity for the portrait photography side of my work. While I was meeting with her I snapped a few images of her workspace.
