On-Going Photo Project


I have a long-term photo project that I've been working on sporadically. All my pre-digital photos are either in photo albums or in photo boxes. A few years ago I organized about 90% of my photo negatives and put them into archival sleeves which I keep in binders. Eventually I want to digitize all my old photos and catalog them and tag them in Adobe Lightroom. And I want to have photo albums organized in chronological fashion, by year. I want to get all my photos out of boxes and into albums. You can see that this will be a long-term project for me. I will be incorporating my parents' photos into this project too. Sadly, nobody in my family cares about the old photos as much as I do. My dad isn't very sentimental and is not big on attention to details. My sister doesn't get nostalgic and is too busy to care about it. So it's kind of just... me.

This weekend we found out something very sad on Facebook. One of Todd's high school friends, Wilson, died very suddenly while attending a wedding on the east coast. It's surreal to find out something like this on Facebook. Wilson lived in LA with his wife and kids. We hadn't seen them in a few years. He worked in the entertainment industry, as many people in LA do. Both Wilson and Todd were fans of the TV show "Buffy the Vampire Slayer". When they came out with the musical episode, Todd loved it. Wilson worked at Fox, so he sent Todd a special copy of the DVD that wasn't for sale or distribution. We're shocked and sad that Wilson passed away so suddenly at such a young age. This is our third friend this year who died in their 30's. Wow.

This post is turning into a real downer. I'll lighten things up a little bit. I wanted to let you all know how much I've appreciated receiving your comments about my monthly templates. It's also very cool to hear from many of you who have "delurked" and introduced yourselves! :) Speaking of which, I received a question from Diane E (who delurked a while ago) about where do I keep my camera while running? Do I hold it in my hand? I wear a utility/hydration belt when I run. It looks like this.
You velcro it around your waist. The back of the belt can hold two 10 oz. water bottles. (Being hydrated on runs is VERY important!) There's also a little pouch where I keep my camera and my GU energy gels.  Here's the link to mine. They run small... mine is a medium and Todd wears a large.

Lastly, the perfect kit came along for my page about In-N-Out Burger.  It is a kit about Fall, but I found another use for it!  The kit is called "Love Fall", a collab between Designs by Lili and Michelle Filo (Mushy), out on Tuesday (or now!).

PS - to "TooManyHobbies" - Todd says you can get the "trophy wife" t-shirt for your DH here at Cafe Press.
