A Day in the Life

two tone shoes | via vmac+cheese

I’ve been thinking a lot about new things I’d like to feature on the blog, and kept returning to an idea that used to be much more prevalent around these parts — sharing photos of what’s going on in my life! If there’s one regret I have about 2012, it’s that I took an embarrassingly small number of photos with my real DSLR camera. Blame the iPhone, blame my own laziness, but it’s something I hope to rectify this year, especially because I used to keep you guys in the loop way more often!

I thought a great way to get that particular resolution off on the right foot would be to launch an occasional column that shares sneak peeks into my everyday world. Weekend outings, regular work days at home, fun happenings here in SF — all up for documentation! Yesterday, my first official day in the office in 2013, seemed like as good a time as any to start. So here it is, a day in the life (and new year) of Victoria…

    Great series. I think this will be really fun for you and us as readers. Also, I read the Paris wife this summer and loved it. You’re going to want to read A Moveable Feast right after.

    love this series so much! great idea. i started the paris wife on tape and haven’t been able to get into it in the car – I think I need to do nonfiction on audiobooks and fiction I need to just read – when people’s voices dont sound like what I want the character to sound like it messes with my mind!

    Such a fun series! I think getting to look into the day-to-day lives of other people is one of the very best things about reading blogs! Also, I think you’ll continue to enjoy The Paris Wife – I was a bit skeptical when I started reading it, but by the end I was thoroughrly enjoying the beauty of the story. I completely agree with your other commenter, Nikki -you will want to read A Moveable Feast when you’re done!

    Great pictures, and I shared a similar resolution to take more “real” pictures in a recent blog post. It is so hard with the iPhone, gorgeous Pinterest images, etc. What do you use for photo editing, effects…? I don’t have any software for that right now but I am thinking about making an investment since I do have a DSLR. Thanks!
