Migrating South For The Weekend

This weekend, Adam and I are packing up the pups and our bags and are heading a couple of hours south to a new little town that my mom and step-dad just moved to in South Carolina. They’ve been there for a month or so now and it’s about time we get ourselves down there and do a little exploring. We’re planning on heading to the beach but, you know, just to look. Too many sharks in the water for this beach-loving lady.

Anyway, you will be able to follow along with our grand adventure on Snapchat. That’s right, I, very hesitantly, joined Snapchat back in April and then quickly became obsessed with it. Ob-sessed. If you’re over there and would like to give my Snaps a try, you can do just that by following iamkatyhill.

Side note: The lovely Heather gave my Snapchat and Instagram accounts a little shout out this week and it absolutely made my day. Thank you, Heather!

Time to get the car packed up and head on out for the weekend. I hope you all have a most wonderful one ahead of you.

Some Days

Some days, when you have more energy than normal (without caffeine for the assist), and you’re having a good hair day, and the light is coming through the curtains just so, and you’re wearing one of your favorite tops, you might be inspired and might choose to take advantage of the gorgeous afternoon sun pouring through the window, just as I did. It was a good day.

I’ve been wanting to try lifestyle photography and decided to take advantage of the setting. The graininess of a high ISO and a willing model (HI). They say the only way to get better is to practice and play around, right? Well this was my kind of play, and I loved it.

Anything Could Happen

As I write this, it’s Sunday night. 9:04 PM. Our two dogs are currently lying flat on the hardwood floors trying to collect as much of the air conditioned-soaked wood into their skin as possible. Ahhh, summer walks. It’s the first day of summer so I can officially call them “summer walks” now, even though the last month has been so crazy hot that Spring is but a distant memory at this point. During the winter months, my girls could walk all day. The dry, cold air is much less likely to suck the life out of them so fast. We waited until the sun was hiding behind the trees and the sting of that blasted heat was gone. They’ve been cooped up so much thanks to this triple-digit weather, so we decided to take them out as late as we could stretch it. Nola doesn’t do so well under the fluff of fur coat she wears. Penny Lane, our black lab mix, would spend all day in the sun if she could. I believe she is part cat. It’s a working theory.

Anyway.

Another great, yet ordinary weekend has passed by and we are settling in to begin a new week. Though this week will hopefully answer some lingering questions for us. I must stay cryptic for now, but it’s the first time in a while that I’m actually anticipating Monday’s arrival.

It’s a lazy, hazy Sunday evening and we are settling into it, into the new week and into the possibilities that lie ahead of us. Anything could happen.

One Hot Friday night

I just had to take a moment to blog about our hot Friday night. Super hot. Mondo hot. (Do people say “mondo” anymore?)

I digress.

So, Adam is currently watching Interstellar and I’m letting him because, well, he doesn’t need my permission and I just picked up two books at the library, so he can proceed with this epically long, drawn-out movie that he has been dying to see. So, he’s watching.

I just proceed to poke my head up and out of my book long enough to ask such thought-provoking questions as, “Are they on another planet now?” To which my love replies, “Yes.”

Ten minutes later, “Did someone die?” To which my still-loving, but now a bit impatient husband replies, “Yes.”

“So, that’s his son? His son is Ben Affleck’s brother? How is he so old already?” To which he presses pause, explains the crazy reason his kids are suddenly twenty years older in the course of twenty minutes without Matthew McConaughey(hey) aging one bit. “Because, science”, he explains.

Right.

This could really go on for hours. Well, about two more by my calculations.
