Giving Aid

I know that photos are the focus of my business and this blog but I had to take a moment to discuss the horrible earthquake that hit Haiti on Tuesday and what everyone can do to help.

As I'm sure all of you know by now (and have seen on the news and countless blogs), Haiti was hit by a massive earthquake on Tuesday and they fear 500,000 may be dead, and countless more injured. I just wanted to take a moment to list some organizations (courtesy of Good Morning America's website) that are now accepting donations and ask for all of you to donate if you can (even a dollar or two will help!).

The Red Cross is also offering an option where you can donate $10 by texting 'Haiti' to 90999 (I believe the $10 will be added to your phone bill)

Einstein + Molly Mutt

Sorry for the lack of actual photo shoots, but with the freezing temps and the recent holidays, I don't think many people are thinking about photos at the moment (but just an FYI, I can do indoor photos, just email me for more info!). I did take some photos this weekend though and wanted to share this photo that I took of Einstein on his Molly Mutt bed.

If you've never heard of Molly Mutt beds, they're actually duvet covers for dog beds and come in a few different prints. I like them because you can put in old blankets, towels, clothes, pillows...whatever you aren't using anymore (and the dogs like them because they smell like you!). Einstein doesn't sleep on his at night (as I'm sure you assumed, he's so spoiled he gets to sleep in our bed) but he does perch on it often during the day while doing his neighborhood watch thing.

New Year's Eve 2009

Josh and I always try and do something different each year for New Year's Eve. Last year we had dinner with friends, the previous year we got dressed up and went out to a nice dinner downtown. This year we decided to be recession friendly and just make dinner at home, spending the evening with our favorite furry friend!

Einstein, ready to party...

Since I'm usually the one behind the camera, Josh took a few of me and my little buddy.

The last night of enjoying our tree (we always take it down on New Year's Day). If you look closely, you can see me in one of the ornaments!

For dinner I made flank steak, potatoes, and we also had salad topped with cranberries, feta cheese, and nuts. Dessert was espresso chocolate mousse with marscapone whipped cream. It was very yummy (if I do say so myself!)!
