Perfect Timing is a weekly photography project by two friends who met in college, became roommates and have been close ever since. We share a love for languages and travel, and although we’re from the same southern state, we now live on different continents, balancing a demanding work life with a private life. We both agree that everything happens for a reason, whether we see these moments as positive or negative at the time, propelling us ahead or slowing us down. We hope you will join us each week, as we share little moments of Perfect Timing with you.
The past two weeks have been pretty stressful and hectic with work, so it kind of goes without saying that the weekends are treasured around here. I still end up having to work on various items most weekends, but as I was just telling a friend of mine the other day, I finally feel like I’ve hit that sweet spot of balancing work with relaxation on the weekends. And let me tell you… it feels good. I actually feel recharged most Mondays after having some downtime on the weekend. If you’re like me, you need to hit the reset button by the end of the week. This past Saturday was my husband’s birthday. We went to one of our favorite Mexican restaurants for lunch and ran a couple of errands. We also popped into a local coffee shop on Main Street in Santa Monica after we picked up a few Christmas gifts. It was peaceful and relaxing to enjoy a cup of coffee and take in the scene of others also soaking in the sunny weekend afternoon.
Mary of Moe-Digger Photography and I became friends in college after we realized how much we had in common. We each grew up with three brothers, played sports and studied history, languages and cultures. I still remember our SLR cameras and our love for shooting with film. We have shared many wonderful experiences together over the years and have supported each other through some of the most significant moments in our adult lives. I am excited to take on this project with her. Be sure to stop by her blog to see how her week has panned out. Here’s a hint: Curveball.
