My recent escapade to the capital of weirdness brought about an epiphany. I wonder when I last used a film camera…. Believe it or not – my first camera was NOT digital. Soon after I hit my one year anniversary with Walgreens, I got promoted from the customer service rep position to the photo lab tech spot. I touched film quite a bit. It always intrigued me. I never experimented with my own film, just the customers’. So when I left the lab, I basically lost all connections with the film world. After being so heavily involved in the digital … Continue reading remember when…?

Who doesn’t love a soft taco? Really, is there anything as quick, fresh and oh so satisfying as a bunch of fresh and tasty things wrapped up in a soft, warm tortilla? No is the answer. This is my mash-up of a soft taco. Take some Chinese flavours, mix them with Mexican techniques and add some locally grown produce and you get a delicious collision of flavours. My Honey-Soy Salmon, Coconut + Crispy Kale Taco features a tasty little mound of healthy goodies – black rice, crisp shredded kale, toasted coconut, avocado, orange,… Continue reading

Back by popular demand is another round of photo safari goodness! *hooray!* I had 4 major goals for this evening: spend “be still” time with the Lord run eat at Stubb’s BBQ fulfill a sweet tooth fantasy at Amy’s Ice Cream I’m happy to say I accomplished ALL of my goals…and even walked away with a bonus feature – a vintage treasure, if you will. (Comment for a hint. Yes, I’m going to be vague again. If you read these side musings of mine and actually comment, then I must know you and love you dearly. I see so many … Continue reading Bonus Blog Friday | nothing beats going there
So, I had a change of plans. I decided to postpone my running until EARLY tomorrow morning (SO incredibly rare for me since I’m a night/midnight runner at heart.) I would rather not be attacked or kidnapped on the poorly lit (due to nightfall) 4.5 mile track between the hotel, river, and downtown. (Some of you follow me on Twitter & Facebook, so you should recognize the kidnapping reference from earlier…yeah….) This wicked cool photo safari happened due to a wrong turn. Seriously. This is yet another time where I am amazed at God’s providence, even in the “little” things. … Continue reading come on, baby! photo safari! (Austin style…meaning weird)
But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith – that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and … Continue reading intentional forgetfulness
