Lots o’ Patterns – All at Once

This Tuesday fashion shoot is brought to you by Monday’s sunshine and Maple’s willingness to take my photo (even though it took valuable time out of our Monday Racquetball game.)

The weather was lovely today, about 15 degrees above zero in the sunshine. My regular photographer Meghan was out sick so Maple joyfully (read: incredibly grudgingly) agreed to take my photo after only briefly attempting to convince me that it would still be light enough to take photos we finished racquetball (it wasn’t.)

Monday (yesterday) was an amazingly productive day – which is always nice. After racquetball I called one of my mothers and then Maple and myself still managed to split/stack over a cord of wood, read books, and play fetch with Ms. Sabine. I love productive nights.
