back in april, i blogged about the excitedness of being able to attend the first i heart faces photo walk in philadelphia. i am stoked because today is finally the day. i think there are 35 of us that will come together in the chestnut hill section of the city to do what we all love to do... photograph everything! i have no expectations for today beings that i have never gone to one of these or know anyone that has, except for what i have read on-line!
i'm sure there will be TONS of pictures to share with you!

veggie goodness

i'm have this salad that i eat in the warm summer months that is so, so delicious. it's a mixture of peppers, tomatoes, avocado, vinaigrette, onion, and beans. i have some marinating in the fridge and it's taking everything in me to not eat it before it's had time to sit...
so, i'll share with you how to make it and some yummy pics, in the hopes that it will be ready by the time this post is!
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 can chickpeas, rinsed,
1 can kidney beans, rinsed
3 peppers, diced (any color, but i prefer the red, yellow, and orange variety)
1 pint cherry tomatoes, cut in half
balsamic vinagrette, any variety, at least 1/3 of a bottle... this is really suited to your taste
1 avocado, peeled and sliced

start by mixing the beans together in the bowl.

then, add the onions, peppers, and tomatoes; mix

carefully stir in the dressing and then add the avocado

give it a gentle mix and place it in the refrigerator. you could eat it right then and there, but it really needs time to marinate in all the vinaigrette-y goodness.

give it about an hour to chill and then DIG IN!


you may or may not remember my dear friends heather and eric from random moments on my blog. first, here from their engagement shoot and then again, here from their maternity shoot. on friday, may 28th, at 10:10 pm, their little love bug, L, entered this world. i took a drive up to reading to meet their sweet little baby, and to get in a quick shoot ;)
this is one gorgeous baby, who has stolen my heart.
