The Murphy Chronicles: 26/52

We've officially reached the halfway point in 2014! I've had so much fun doing my weekly documentation of Murphy. This week, he's been helping me try out my new external flash (600 ex rt). I'm sure you can see his unbridled enthusiasm jumping out of these pics, taken in my very dimly lit living room (read: Murphy's evening nap time). The flash is awesome and I can't wait to learn how to use all of its tools and tricks!

In the Garden

After a long and busy summer, it felt really good to get some gardening done last weekend! My empty pots and various overgrown branches and weeds were depressing and dull. So I headed to Lowe's and stocked up! It was a lovely and much needed afternoon outside, and the patio finally feels summer ready. Better late than never right?

This succulent is my favorite plant so far.

Since this interesting weed decided to make a home in the usual tomato plant spot, I'm letting it play out!

In my opinion, you can't go wrong with Coleus plants. They're hardy, colorful, love shade, and get really big!

The Tiger's Eye is a new addition this year, and it supposedly gets quite large. Petunias are my go-to favorite every summer. Cheers to a colorful garden!

The Murphy Chronicles: 25/52

Murphy and his buddy Baby the Westie were sad to see it was raining outside. Mama's little botanist sniffed some inside flowers instead.

This surprise bouquet of farmer's market flowers brightened the day!

Had a great afternoon collaborating with The Style Heist for some fashion photography!

The Murphy Chronicles: 23/52

Murphy is very protective of his blue bone. He tries to act mean when you attempt to take it, but quickly resorts back to his sweet bashful puppy self.

Weekend Shots

The weather was perfect last weekend. It's at that point where the heat is creeping in but the cool air still provides a perfect spring-like breeze. I'm enjoying it while I can! Cheers!
