16, 25, 9, 27, 28, 2


It's not often that I make two posts in the same day, but so much has been going on lately and I feel like all of my NYC photos have put me behind. This second post of the day is to tell you about a revamped and exciting Words to Shoot By. A couple of weeks ago, I invited 10 new contributors to the project and simplified it for all of us. We're still posting every two weeks, but each post will likely contain photos from a differing set of photographers instead of the same set of people every single time. I'm so excited for the change, the updates, the new photographers involved... This has renewed my energy for the project and I'm just so happy about it. I hope you'll check it out.

In other news, since my birthday is fast approaching, I've been working hard on crossing as much as I can off my list. This past weekend, I was able to cross off #16 (photos to come soon) and #25, and I'm thinking it's safe to cross off #9 as well due to the fact that I've hit every photo booth in Northern Utah, all thanks to my pal Christina. I also just crossed off #27 and #28, and #2 because I feel that my new book, Into the Woods, is close enough. I will post photos of the book soon, but go to Blurb to check out a preview. I'm so happy with it! I am hoping to cross off a few more things within this last month. Wish me luck. I had so much fun with this project that I've decided to make a new list for my 32nd year. Thanks once again to the lovely Andrea for the inspiration and her love of lists. She's a girl after my own heart. So, on January 6th, look for my second birthday list. I've been jotting down items for a couple weeks and I'm getting pretty excited about it.

I'll be posting lots of photos in the next week so I hope you'll check here and on my Flickr photostream. I shot my first pack of Polaroid Chocolate out in the desert this weekend, some more Fuji Instax Mini minis, and I have five nerdy new photo booth strips to share. Here's to a great week!
