Well hello my long lost friends. Happy November 1st. I know – I said “blogging will resume” back in July and now it’s almost four months later! I owe you all a big apology. I dropped off the face of the earth without so much as a warning or a note that I was alive and well. But here I am… alive and well and I’ve missed writing and connecting with all of you. So I hope you forgive me and my crappy communication.
Meanwhile, I have exciting news to share, which I hope makes up for my long absence! Adam and I are now the proud parents of this little guy:
That’s right! We’re having a baby. I’m currently five months pregnant and feeling great! The pregnancy has been quite smooth thus far – absolutely zero morning sickness, energy’s remained pretty high and as far as we know – baby is doing swimmingly. For the most part, I haven’t been turned off or turned on by any weird foods – actually… just milk. I’ve been craving tall glasses of cold milk, which is definitely a new thing for me. Though you all know my obsession with dairy products, so I guess it’s just heightened a bit. Other than that, I’ve been eating like I always eat – while trying to keep it a little healthier by cooking more and adding in extra fruits and veggies.
In this ultrasound photo the little babe’s chilling upside down. He looks pretty happy – sort of looks like he’s smiling right? And just look at that spine and those skinny little legs! CRAZY! At our twenty-week scan last Wednesday we saw him sucking his thumb and just this past week I’ve started feeling him moving around a little. What a trip.
As for me, I’m totally getting all ‘nesty’ already. I’m finding myself cleaning, cooking, organizing and doing more laundry than I’ve ever done in my life. I’m enjoying settling into our new home in Brooklyn and my domestic goddess is emerging in full force. I even bought myself some Indian spices the other day and experimented with a lovely silken chicken recipe from Madhur Jaffrey. It came out delish!
Now to fill you in on the last few months… I’ve worked on some fun projects and actually earned some money, which is quite exciting! I did some head shots, worked at a commercial casting session and shot my very first spot as Director of Photography (with Adam directing) for a major brand (I’ll post it on the site and give more details once it’s officially wrapped up). We also took a fantastic trip to the Canadian Rockies, Calgary and Port Townsend, WA for the Port Townsend Film Festival, where Hello Lonesome took home a Jury Prize for Best Narrative Feature – HOORAY! Here are some of my favorite photos from our trip to Banff and Jasper National Parks:
So friends… that’s all for now. I am glad to be back and hope you are all doing well! Feel free to say hello.
