A Forgotten Post

personal Travel

I’m not sure how it all went down.  I think I just too busy and shifted the personal stuff aside.  So I’m now finally putting up a blog about Thanksgiving 2010.  Really its more about a trip we took out west and more importantly what we saw and captured.  A bit forgotten, a bit late, but here it is.

This past Thanksgiving we decided to visit my grandparents in Palm Desert.  Their main home is up in Seattle, but in the wintertime they re locate to the warmer parts.  It’s been years since I’ve been to Palm Desert, last time I was in high school.  It was awesome to go back with a new set of eyes, and to bring Eliot along too.  It was a short visit, but we made the most of it.  The day after Thanksgiving we ventured out to explore some of the desert.  I get excited by new scenery.

At one point we did get stopped at a Border Patrol checkpoint, guess who forgot their passport?  Luckily he didn’t fit the profile.

Hearty Mexican food for lunch, and beer of course.

We bought a house together, and are in the process of making it a home. Yet, it still seems as though we have one foot out the door (well two if you count both of our one feet). In my 25th year I went to Portugal, and then got to go to England for the 3rd time. I went to Bellingham, my hometown, and went sailing on the ba ...

You know when you see someone you haven't seen in ages, the conversation just flows and you feel like you'll never get caught up on everything that's happened since the last time you spoke? That's what happened with this girl, because I haven't seen her since.....*yikes* high school? We were next door neighbors growing up, and were always at one another house. Mostly I hung out at her house as I kind of liked her whole family. So when she contacted me to shoot her wedding, I was ecstatic. There's nothing like reconnecting with old pals, and learning what's been happening in their life. But most of all, how cool is it to meet the person they'v ...
