These are from a series of photos I’m doing for the Sustainable Food Center here in Austin. I was so fortunate to have as our model, Shaleiah Fox, who started Fresh Chef Society an organization that offers foster care youth the opportunity to learn the art of cooking from culinary experts and community chefs. Inspiring work and and an amazing smile to boot.
We just returned from an amazing weekend on the island of Ilesboro in Maine. My cousin Pegram married his long time partner Ant. The ceremony was filled with love and lots of family. This picture is of George, the son of the family that so graciously shared their home with us for the weekend. George is quite the sailer, fisherman and all around great kid.
The dust is flying (literally) as we finish packing the final boxes before our move tomorrow. The new house is light filled and will be a great one for us in the coming years. With any change comes loss and ours is a bathtub. So sadly, our almost nightly ritual for the past four years of giving G a bath is gone, suddenly, and I’m not ready.
Today my little man turned 4. We spent our afternoon picnicking with friends, searching for bugs, and playing one of those comical versions of hide and seek that always remind me of a certain Louis CK bit . It wasn’t an easy day for me as I’m suddenly second fiddle to Daddy. And George most certainly does NOT want me to take his picture.
