twelve. ten. twelve.

And another month rolls around with barely a word from these parts. I've been consumed with other things. Like not Christmas shopping. Not exercising. Not eating right. Oh, and not blogging. Good thing I'm committed to these Ten on Ten posts. Or there'd be nothing but crickets around here.

We all managed to survive Nutcracker season. The ballerinas much more so than me, I must say. I am down with some type of sickness. That just doesn't want to give up. I thought I was at the tail end of it, but I guess spending two weeks in a theater holding countless germy little hands just before they puke into the trash can is not the best ounce of prevention. But it's all good.

I also started an online film photography class last week. It is fantastic! And I can't wait for my film to arrive so I can dive in and try out my dad's old cameras. I hope to post more about that soon. I think I'm onto something. Something that I knew was missing. But am just starting to figure out what it was. I know that sounds totally vague. But it's exciting.

OK...onto my day. Ten photos. Over Ten hours. On the tenth day. A boring sick day. I barely left the house. And I can't wait to crawl into bed as soon as I hit "Submit."

sleepy heads...

Yuck to the sickness... I've had it too and just when you think surely you're going to wake up and it will be all over IT'S not!
I also LOVE the dance pickup! Love.

Congrats on surviving Nutcracker Season. Tech Week starts for us next week - and finals - and orchestra concert - and did I mention Little K broke her wrist so I have to modify her costume to cover. Ahhh - the excitement of the ballet. Sorry you're not feeling well. Rest up and eat those beautiful eggs my friend. Feel better soon - beautiful job.

Always love your photos. Get well soon! I love that your tree is in a bucket!

Get well soon sweet friend!

Love your set of pictures. Your living room is beautiful. It could be in a magazine.

That is so exciting that you are going to use some of your dad's old cameras, and real film. I can't wait to hear more about this. Makes me smile.

Love your set and that galvanized bucket your tree is in. I'm jealous...
I think my cholesterol would be through the roof if I had chickens in my backyard.
Sorry to hear you aren't well. Feel better and share more soon.
