Tap, tap, tap – is this thing on?
We are still alive and well here in ID and WA, respectively (and despite what our month+ absence might imply). It’s just that, well, life started getting in the way of our consistency. A wee bit of boredom seeped in, too. We’re entering our third season (!) of documenting the quotidian beauty amidst the weeds and we’re both in the same houses in the same towns fighting the “I’ve already taken that photo” rut (we don’t travel nearly enough in this young-kids season of our lives). For awhile it looked like we might jump ship on the project altogether, but stepping away from this space only made us realize how much a part of us it had become, how much we missed the ritual. And of course it’s ridiculous to argue that the photos are all taken. (Especially as ever-handy iPhones allow for the capture of even more beautiful tidbits.)
So we’re back. And we’ve reinvigorated ourselves by re-visiting some old favorites and creating what we think is a mighty purty collage (available for purchase starting at $20) . And we’ve pinky-promised to give it our best effort – if not every day than most days. We might even have a few changes up our sleeve…
And while we have your attention – thank you to those of you who visit this space with us, and tell us just when we’re feeling discouraged and about to shut down shop how much you loved a certain photo, or the message of a particular post, or how checking the site is as much a part of your morning routine as your cup of coffee. Creating art in a vacuum isn’t nearly as satisfying as creating art within a community. Thank you for being a part of our community!
