Polo, Pinkberry, and Perfection

Polo, Pinkberry, and Perfection


I woke up with excitement.

JD was washing the dishes when he heard Polo run to our bed and pounce on my belly. What do you want to do today, JD asked after he heard me wrestling the four-legged, white ball of fur.


Okay, so while this may sound dramatic, it wasn’t. Or maybe it was, but it wasn’t intended to be. Now that wedding season is in full-swing, Saturdays are filled with work and loads of busyness. Because I shot a wedding yesterday, my weekend was free to do what I wanted. And feel like a normal girl on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon.

In the morning, we walked to breakfast, meandered around Heaven for a while (a.k.a. Barnes&Noble), bought a few books, spent the afternoon by the pool, lunched at our favorite restaurant, then took a long nap. If this doesn’t sound the most perfect day ever, JD, Polo and I went to Pinkberry at the Irvine Spectrum to round out our day. Perfection, I tell you.

Happy Saturday!

    i love how you document everything! but i wonder…. does it DRIVE YOUR HUSBAND NUTS sometimes? just a little? πŸ™‚

    I have yet to try pinkberry! I need to see what the fuss is about!

      4.27.08 - 7:38 pm

  17. Kelsey Horner -

    I have a quick question, actually. I know that you’re probably swamped with all sorts of other questions, but this one is quick (I hope). I notice that you and many other photographers put their "signature"/logo on the border around their picture. What do you use to put that on there exactly?

    Barnes and a nap, now that’s my kind of fun!

    I have the same question as Kelsey…how do you get your logo and that awesome black border around your images?

      4.27.08 - 11:08 pm

  22. Becky Rose -

    Hi. I have the same question as Kelsey and Mar…how do you get the black/white border around your photos and how do you add your signature. I’ll check back often to see more posts and your answers. You have a wonderful website and blog! Thank you.

    I love Pinkberry. Hubbie and I used to drive up to K-Town, LA and Long Beach just to get some! I am so glad they opened one up in OC now. Looks like you got the original? I love the green tea + kiwi. Mmm..

  24. Cathy Crawley -

    I’d be excited too if the first sound I heard of a morning was my husband doing the dishes! Oh, that’s right, my hubby does the dishes at night after I cook.

    Oh, and I know how you make the border with the logo…..you make a photoshop action, record it and play it on every photo. Easy peasy! Step one: size for web, step two increase canvas size, step three type the logo, step four flatten. Simple!

    i totally know what you mean about having a "normal" weekend with your loved ones! i soooo miss my time with hubs and akira sometimes.

    you MUST try red mango. it’s actual frozen yogurt and creamier than pinkberry. there’s one by harvard and main in irvine. try strawberries, mochi, and crushed graham crackers! it tastes almost like cheesecake!

    oooh had you not included the ever important nap I may have contested just how perfect your day really was… but you indeed had a perfect day! πŸ˜€ Mmm Saturday nap time nuggles… what dreams are made of!
