Cabin in the Woods

How did we make it through the summer without a weekend at the cottage until now? Partly due to the fact that my husband works Saturdays- it’s a long drive if we’re only staying for a day. And traveling with a baby is overwhelming if it’s one day or one week. The amount of stuff I needed to pack for fewer than 48 hours was kind of ridiculous. A cooler for food, milk and bottles, a stack of cloth diapers, clothes, a few toys and books, plus my own essentials. I really did try to pack light. Once there I just needed to unwind. I’d had exactly 2 hours of sleep the night before and didn’t get much more that night either, once we realized the baby had a cold. Other than lack of sleep, we were all happy to be there and to enjoy the outdoors. We explored familiar spots in the surrounding woods and I wandered a little while, alone with my camera.

Flowers for Painting

The hydrangeas in our yard are starting to fade, looking a bit wild and rustic. The baby spotted them on the kitchen table after her nap, and excitedly signed "flower."
 
A very talented friend of mine will be teaching an art class- specifically acrylic painting. I loved painting in high school and I’m really looking forward to starting it up again and learning with a more mature perspective.
 
In all of the floral photos I’ve taken lately, I am seeing the potential for paintings. I can’t wait.

I love when two unrelated photographs go so well together.
