Eating cherry tomatoes from my garden at least twice a week.  If you look closely at the second picture above, you can see a cucumber as well!  There's something about cherry tomatoes and summer that go hand and hand for me.

Inspired by Brian Chesky's post, 7 rejections.  He shares a few of the rejection letters from five potential early investors to Airbnb (he didn't hear back from the other two).  A reminder that not everyone will see the greatness in what you do, but it doesn't mean you should quit.

Brainstorming ways to make the transition to school a bit easier for my 5 year old daughter.  Kindergarten days are long and new schools take a while to get used to.

Amazed by the beauty of these film photographs.  Photographer Meagan Abell found a box of vintage film negatives in a thrift shop in Richmond, Viriginia. She has launched a campaign to find the photographer and the models in the photographs.  And it looks like she may be close to finding her answers.

Listening to my new favorite podcast - Magic Lessons by Elizabeth Gilbert.  She seeks to create "road maps for the path to creativity, the extra nudge you need when you're feeling stuck." If you are a creative person, you will find so many words of wisdom in these episodes.

Sad to hear that CVS has officially stopped developing film.

Discovered the blog of Staci Lee Kennelly, a life developing, and lost of few hours looking at her photographs.

I've never tried 8x10 polaroids, but these portraits definitely have me intrigued.
