Weekly Photo Project: Week 21

Date Night

It finally happened. I made it an entire week without picking up my “real” camera, save for a single work related shoot. This month was more chaotic than most, which is saying a lot. We had to move our date from Thursday to Tuesday to Monday. But it happened. And I did snap a quick photo on my phone. (“Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.”)

(Cheap) Family Dates: Soto at the MFAH

Ever since our date at the MFAH, Ben and I have been talking about taking Leila to enjoy the Soto exhibit. It kept not happening, so finally, after dinner last Thursday we whisked ourselves into the car and over to the MFAH so we could finally enjoy some Soto on the last free Thursday of the exhibit. It was amazing.

We’re planning on making a Thursday evening family date to the MFAH a thing.


(Cheap) Summer Dates: Farmers’ Market, Yoga, Wine…and Wings

For our last summer date we took advantage of our time at Keuka Lake with the grandparents. While they put Leila to bed we headed over to Heron Hill Winery to shop the Farmers’ Market before our $15 (a person) yoga class/wine tasting. It was the trifecta of summer dates. A Farmers’ Market with a gorgeous view of the lake, followed by a yoga class surrounded by flowers on their lush green lawn, finished with a tasting of delicious wines.

…And then we topped ourselves when we headed back into town and found a little restaurant with $.50 wings.


(I actually managed to get a photo of us on our date, but I decided this photo of Leila is way cuter than the one of us after our yoga class.)
