I love coffee. Sometimes people try to switch my coffee to decaf when I’m not looking. I can always tell the difference. I also like Pringles, but only the reduced fat kind because they crunch better when you bite into them and they don’t leave grease on your fingers. I’m…

When I was looking to buy my wedding invitations (back in April), I found a lot of designers on Etsy. After narrowing it down to a couple different designs/companies, I contacted both for their pricing list. One was pretty significantly more expensive–almost $2 per invitation more. Which I think all…

When talking to people about photography, I hear one phrase over and over again: Kids and dogs are the hardest subjects to photograph.
I, personally, don’t have this problem with my clients…kids and dogs are among my favorite things to photograph. Maybe it’s because I like to have any excuse…

Last week, Sean and I had our morning coffee on the balcony and watched as the Enterprise shuttle was pulled down the Hudson on a tug boat. It’s on its way to the Intrepid and I can’t wait to see it up close at the museum!

This is Me

This is Me
I love coffee. Sometimes people try to switch my coffee from caffeinated to decaf. I can always tell the difference. I also like Pringles, but only the reduced fat kind because they crunch better when you bite into them and they aren’t as greasy. The nights I don’t go on dates, I have either tuna fish from a can, peanut butter and jelly, or if it’s a special occasion and I’m splurging–I’ll use a coupon from the Entertainment book my father gives me every year as a Christmas gift and get take out from a cheap restaurant. I’m an actress sometimes, a photographer rarely, a producer most of the time, and a friend always. But on a serious level, and yes I can be serious, I consider myself a work in progress. I believe if you wake up in the morning and fall asleep at night the same person, you might as well have stayed in bed. Life will kick you in the balls, but I kick back harder. I am a dreamer. I am a romantic. I am pragmatic. I am contradictory. I am who I am and I love who I am. I love my family, my friends, my life, and every crusade I’ve fought to get where I am. Although it’s been proven that caffeine is addictive, stunts your growth, and is bad for your teeth, I still like it. And I’ll never allow anyone steal the caffeine out of my coffee.

    As Mark Twain once said, “I haven’t a particle of confidence in any man with no redeeming petty vices”… so you and your caffeine addiction are fine by me. (besides, I adore coffee and wouldn’t touch the decaf, what’s the point?)

    So great to see you here! I love what you’re doing with the place, too. Beautiful pictures - the couple toward the top must be your mom and dad.

    By the way, I just read The Time Traveler’s Wife - I loved it!!! I’m still kicking myself for letting it sit in my to be read pile for so long.

    Thank you! I have no clue how to upload a picture to my profile…something about photo hosting, but when I try at xs.to it doesn’t work. So, I gave up!

    The Time Traveler’s Wife may seriously be the greatest book I have read in a long time. I tried to get my boyfriend to read it though, and he wasn’t feeling it. I was very disappointed in his taste! But it just goes to show how biased this biz is!
