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.
I’ve been doing a lot of projects around the house lately, on the weekends and in the evenings when I can spare an hour here and there. It definitely doesn’t go as quickly as I’d like it to, but at the same time, I’m enjoying the process of painting each room and choosing very carefully where everything will go. Yes, I did just say I enjoy painting. What I wasn’t expecting in this process is the satisfaction and sense of accomplishment I have even with the smaller, more tedious tasks.
On Saturday, I painted the baseboards, door trim and doors in our guest room. This has been nagging at me… every time I went into that room, I saw the baseboards that would look 100 times better if I just painted them already. So, I finally got around to it. And it’s like the room has been refreshed. It sounds silly, I know. But every time I finish a small or large task in one room, I feel happy the next time I walk into that room with the outcome and fresh facelift I’ve given it, even if it does feel like it’s all taking forever. So while a lot of our things have yet to be put away and may never be put away (that’s a whole different post), I’m enjoying this process of making our house a home.
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. Check out Mary’s Perfect Timing photo for this week, too. It’s absolutely stunning! : Fall.
