I got in my dress a few days ago for a wedding Jordan and I will attend in Utah in a few months. Holy cow do I love it! It came all the way from Korea and boy is it a beauty. I can't wait to wear it!
Last August my parents handed over their cherry dining room table and it has become one of my favorite things we have ever received. It was the first item they ever purchased as a married couple.
Each time they come down for a visit they bring a chair with them to add to the table because they can only fit one per trip. There are 8 total chairs.
So far we have only collected 3 of the chairs and I can't help but think every time I see that third chair sitting there how fun it would be to fill it with something. Too bad Roy isn't allowed at the dinner table. ;)
On Friday mornings I get to go out walking with Roy unlike Jord who gets to do it every other weekday. It's one of my favorite times not only because morning is so rejuvenating and bring beautiful light with it, but because I get to watch Roy explore things and be terrorized/flirted with by the cat next door. He loves that cat. And she loves him.
Last night while chatting with one of my closest friends on the phone I realized that not all people are dog people and while this makes no sense to me at all I realized it's highly possible that although I've never considered us as such, Jord and I are probably obsessive dog owners...
It's a quality about us that I have certainly grown attracted to.
We love Roy so much. He will be 4 in the next few months and we have had him since he was 6 weeks old. He has become apart of our family in a way I'm sure many don't understand. My favorite thing about Roy is that he is so forgiving. A natural quality I'm sure most dogs have. One minute I can be scolding him for getting too close to a car and the next minute he is wagging his tail letting me know he doesn't care that I just did so. He keeps me company when Jord is away and I'm sure he does the same for Jord when I'm not here. And I just can't wait to see the fun him and our children have one day.
Friday mornings are my favorite.
As I type this I am reminded of how much we are missing our family and friends that we don't get to see very often. This photo is from New Year's in Utah this year shooting fireworks with family.
Jord had an experience yesterday which was very frustrating but we are now able to laugh at.
He went in for a haircut and his hairdresser had moved. They never bothered to tell him this and he ended up getting a haircut with a what seemed to be fresh out of hair school (if that) hair dresser. If you've ever seen sidesteps... his hair looked like that except for they were not straight at all and they were all over his head and also, he didn't ask for any. They were like drunken sidesteps.
It got to the point where he just got up and paid and left because he got too afraid of what would happen next with scissors in hand. We ended up going to another hairdresser somewhere else immediately afterwards so we could fix his hair.
Glad we can laugh about it now.
It's been a little chilly and dreary in Charleston these past few days. I mean it's no -5 degree weather but in the 40s is cold for Charleston, South Carolina.
It's funny the way the weather has a way of going with our moods out here. Perhaps it sways our moods. But the last few days haven't been the easiest in the Miller house. Hopefully there is some sunshine ahead soon.
I chose to share this with you because I hate the idea of being someone on the internet who screams through the blog my life is amazing 24/7 and on the other hand of that I don't want to be a person that says my life is terrible all the time. Because it's not. It's not either one of those things. We do the best we can and we try to be happy with what we have even when things don't go as planned.
We have been cooking up a storm around the Miller house and we are loving it. We have a Brazilian friend that taught us how to make some yummy authentic Brazilian rice. I don't think we will ever eat rice a different way. Maybe I'll share that recipe some day...with his permission of course.
One of the reasons I wanted to start the photo pharm was because I thought instagram might push through their new terms of service. For a while, instagram served as sort of daily blog for me and for us. It was fun to look back and remember our lives like that. This blog will do that now.
If you met me now you might never believe that I wouldn't touch an avocado with a ten foot pole the first 19 years of my life. I can thank the bowtiedpharmer for my avocado love affair.
I had been dying to try this for a few days after seeing it in a magazine... that I now can't remember the name of. How convenient.
They added tomatoes but that's not an option for me. I'm allergic. Wish I wasn't though.
Welcome to the new blog!
She's a professional (photo)grapher and He's a future (pharm)acist who will most likely henceforth be known as the bowtiedpharmer.
We have lived in thirteen places in our five years of marriage and currently live in the beautiful south with a pup, Roy. We love where we live with the wrap-around porches and sweet southern drawls.
Our hope is to use this space as a place to share and host daily photos from our lives and that it will serve as a journal of sorts.
Feel free to follow along!
