Brett and I had a great time exploring Huntsville together a few weekends ago! 🙂 Even after living here all last summer, there were still some places that I hadn’t been to yet. Our weekend together included a really awesome bar, a tour of NASA for Brett, some good southern eating, an open studio night at a local center for the arts, a neighborhood run, a fun coffee shop (equipped with outdoor seating and a very friendly kitty), a brewery tour of the Straight to Ale brewery, a ‘vintage music’ concert, some easy hiking in Monte Sano State Park, a trip to the Botanical Gardens, and some quality time spent together 🙂
I have been thinking a lot lately about the importance of daily life…more specifically about how we don’t document it as well as we tend to do the special occasions. The other day I realized that one of my favorite bloggers had done a little tutorial on taking better ‘everyday’ photos. She even spoke specifically about a Week in the Life documentary project. “A seven-day documentary project, Week In The Life is an annual opportunity to capture the simple everyday details of your life with photos and words.” I wanted to give it a try 🙂 My official start time was 6 pm on a Thursday….here we go!
This post needed to start with the word, “Summer”…. I guess that’s because the heat just makes it inescapable! The temperatures makes it impossible to forget which season we’re in! 🙂 One great thing about summer though is the variety of fun, evening concerts. Brett got me into bluegrass music after he came back from our local library with as many bluegrass CDs as he could find, and proceeded to listen to them all constantly. (He’s learning to play the banjo by the way! Stay tuned for some updates on that soon 🙂 ) A friend was going to see someone play recently so I tagged along. The concert was in an old cotton mill turned artsy center with a space for live performances on the 2nd floor. Such a fun night!
Ok, so there weren’t only bachelors on the weekend adventure shared by Brett, Raj, Fredrik, Adam, and Saeed but there weren’t any women present either so I think the name of the post stands 🙂
The boys had a great time exploring Seattle and then moved to a smaller town called Leavenworth, WA in the Cascade Mountains. After driving for what seem like forever, they decided to be very grown up and play miniature golf.
