Mom, 2015

“Hey, can you send me some of the pictures you took this week. I want to use them when I blog about your visit.”

“You think  I’ve had a blog-worthy visit?”

“Of course you have!”

Here’s what I did not photograph…

  •  late-night Office marathons
  • (with a side of wine, and chocolate-chip cupcakes)
  • taking turns cooking dinner
  • long conversations that carried right through dinner and on to dessert
  • sunshine
  • kitty snuggles
  • almost giving myself a flat tire in the parking lot of the Alamo Drafthouse [yeah.]

 

Here’s what I did photograph…

(We went to Hopdoddy twice. Their truffle fries are no joke.)
