Minty, baby

I am totally looking forward to the long weekend ahead of me. Sometimes, you just need a break from everything, kick your shoes (flip flops) off and do what makes you feel good.
I plan on attempting some sewing (yes, sewing) projects with some really great linens I found at Liberty Thrift Store, maybe try a new recipe or two.
The Weight of Water has been in my tote for a week now, I fully plan on reading the whole thing this weekend as well.

Oh! Have you tried this deliciously refreshing drink? All you need is some fresh mint and lime (optional, of course). It's perfect, and cools you down.

An interesting note: I got a kind of strange email from someone who follows the blog. It seems she is becoming disappointed with my "transition" to more food related posts, rather than fine art.
To say the least, I was a little hurt but felt I had to justify myself.
In reality, I don't. This blog is about what I love, and that is (all kinds of) photography. Period.
Yes, I started this with only sharing fine art and shop news, but to be completely honest that isn't who I am all the time, every day. I've said before, photographing food is a love that has recently been renewed (outside of studio clients), and it's evident that I am enjoying myself.
So, without trying to sound like a pucker-face, this is my blog. I'll post what I want.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
Do something fun, new, and what makes you happy.

I think you are absolutely right. Your blog should be about one thing - you :) Thanks for sharing this cool summer drink option.

You are 100% right, T! Your posts are gorgeous and inspiring and I'm quite surprised to hear that. Before I read the text in the post I was ready to comment with "I am LOVING these gorgeous food posts!"

Plus, as an artist, blogger & person, you'll always succeed and go further when you follow you heart and do what you love.

Have the best weekend, Lady! xoxoxo

Way to say it. I'm a fine artist but I've recently become a foodie (thank you high metabolism). I love your blog so far because it's not just about food, but about beautiful photographs of food, and that is an art in itself. (Personally, I'm just waiting for someone to tell me to stop talking about my cat on my blog.)

I find that whatever truly makes you happy will come out in your photographs. Everything you shoot has so much personality, and you can tell you're loving every moment of it. Keep it up, cause you rock at everything you do!
