life // week in review and a great quote.

It's Monday again!  I've actually been happy for the arrival of the past couple of Mondays, and next week will be the same.  Last Monday meant I was done moving.  This Monday (today) means I'm back at home after a long weekend in Los Angeles, which was productive, but it's always hard to be away from my own bed and my sweet pup, who I worry about lately since I've traumatized him with yet another relocation (the third in three years).  BUT, I booked two new clients this weekend, so that more than makes up for it!

Next Monday, I'll be coming home from a five-day dog-sitting favor for a friend.  I'm happy to do it for her, but being away from home (and my office, computer, and Lightroom) means I'll fall behind a bit with work, and that's never fun to play catch-up from.

Here's my week via Instagram!

1. Running out of coffee = sad face.
2. Sleepy heads (Fanny & Freddy, my parents' puppies).
3. Mickey insisted on sleeping on the couch cushions while they were drying.
4. Lovely pre-rain clouds (and cooler weather in California!).
5. Happy place: Anthropologie.
6. New earrings from Gina!
7. Hey there, rainbow!
8. Sweet Mickey.

I know, it's not the most exciting week on record, but there it is.

I also wanted to share a cool quote my mom sent to me this morning.  It pretty much defines my life (and what I want my life to be) at the moment.

“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you.” 

I leave you with that lovely thought for this Monday!


  1. do you love those earrings from acute designs?? I've been thinking about buying myself a pair.

    1. I totally do! They are super cute and you can tell that Gina used high-quality materials to make them. :)

  2. Hi there, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  3. Newest follower here! Cute blog, I can't wait to read more.

  4. So, I loooove that quote. Also, haven't checked in on you in a while and I'm glad to see your photo biz is trucking along! Girl, I just got started and this is HARD work! I have newborn photos to edit tonight, and I might be up all night. If my Buckaroo will go to sleep that is. p.s.... your pup is such a trooper. p.p.s.... Is it just me, or do you see that heart shape in the cloud pic? Tell me if you see it, too.

  5. Such a great quote! I see where you get your lovely advice from :)

  6. Obsessed over that quote... had to share it on FB! Seems like it should be my life's mantra. And now I kinda want to design it in a pretty printable.. clearly your mom is awesome :)
