Picture This: Week 15, 2018.

This is a daily series, posted weekly, recapping a daily picture.  It's rarely momentous, there's a strong chance it will involve a cat - or at least an animal - but it inspires me to reflect on each day.  I hope you enjoy, and consider what brings you happiness each day as well.

Henry's enthusiasm for sleep is so endearing.  She's pumped when we crawl into bed, happily chirping as she kneads us into the covers.  


April 10, 2018

Kittens in blanket baskets will never not thrill me.


April 11, 2018

I was fortunate to be in DC right after the peak of the cherry blossoms, and with fantastic weather.  Hamilton is still not fortunate enough to have a monument.


April 12, 2018

Trips to DC are typically exhausting.  Work is packed with meetings and the nights are packed with meeting up with friends.  I was up too late on Wednesday, to the point that the always-busy Foggy Bottom was nearly desolate. 


April 13, 2018

Denali was so excited when I came home.  These little things prove that she's domesticating, and warms our heats.


April 14, 2018

It's a year of 30th birthdays, and many successful surprise parties.


April 15, 2018

The Humans was the only play in our series this year, and there is a lot of value in everyone seeing it.  It's about a family meeting for Thanksgiving, and is packed with emotion, relationships, and is so reflective and relatable.  I came out with a renewed commitment to compassion.  Relationships are hard, and there is not enough appreciation for that.

April 2, 2018

My parents brought me my favorite cake from a local bakery, which is often one of my only birthday requests.  I've been rationing it.


April 3, 2018

Taping and muddling may have been the greatest step toward looking finished in our basement.  The ceiling makes this look like a room.


April 4, 2018

Morning meditation with Denali.


April 5, 2018

Denali's cuddling more, and also testing us for weakness.


April 6, 2018

Cleveland baseball's home opener was on Friday. It was so cold, but very fun.  


April 7, 2018

Welcome to the world, Charlie, you sweet, sweet, beautiful girl.

I painted the drywall, we hung some cabinets from the kitchen, and I added hooks on Monday night, and our storage space is functional and makes me so happy.


March 27, 2018

Taping and mudding progress.


March 28, 2018

When my birthday week coincided with Zach's spring break, we took the opportunity to travel to Smoky Mountain National Park.  It was mossy, steep, full of waterfalls and dense forests.  It was more beautiful than we expected, and we loved it.


March 29, 2018

Zach in a panorama on top of Charlie's Bunion.  This was a 4 mile hike to this point, full of elevation changes.  That would be a theme we didn't expect for the week.


March 30, 2018

The Smokies were filled with waterfalls and rhododendrons.  


March 31, 2018

The pool of the Biltmore house.  I would love to swim in this beautiful basement.


April 1, 2018

As we planned our trip to the Smokies, we learned that elk were reintroduced in the early 2000's.  I never knew elk lived as far south as North Carolina / Tennessee and was so excited.  On our last morning, we saw maybe 30 of a 200+ herd, grazing and very curious.

Repurposing some coffee clips from my sister added a more rotational element to the frame wall.  I love this vintage postcard we found in Jacksonville of Luna Park, now Kennywood, in Pittsburgh.  The postmark on the back says Pittsburg, too!


March 20, 2018

Denali loves the fur I snagged at IKEA years ago, thinking Henry would like it.  The fact that a cat likes it makes me so happy.


March 21, 2018

After months of tension, we're finally making progress in cat relations, and quickly.  Three of them sharing this small of a footprint, peacefully, it monumentous.


March 22, 2018

New running shoes, and they feel so good.


March 23, 2018

I spent Friday editing some pictures to brighten them up and bring out the details.  These are giant sequoias in Yosemite.


March 24, 2018

March for our Lives in Cleveland.


March 25, 2018

 We're back to a Sunday run-day schedule.  Incorporating the Cuyahoga Valley National Park each week has been a game-changer - it's so nice to run on the towpath, and last week we saw a bald eagle.

Henry's learned where we keep Denali's food when she's between snacks.  It's dangerous. 


March 13, 2018

Henry was so cuddly on Tuesday night.  She reminds me of a seal when she wants to get this close to your face.


March 14, 2018

Top floor views for a trip to DC.


March 15, 2018

Dupont Circle, and walking for a tea, is one of the things I miss most about DC.


March 16, 2018

Steph and PJ were in town to see John Mulaney - who was fantastic - and luckily, we had time before the show to swing by one of our favorite breweries that we don't frequent enough: Masthead.


March 17, 2018

Touring one of my favorite ice creameries with some of my favorites.  


March 18, 2018

 Saturday Night Live on a Sunday night is what we do now.

March 5, 2018

Lemon is showing signs of survival.  We have a flower, even when its still too cold and fickle to move outside.


March 6, 2018

Copper's been disgruntled of late.  Having him interact, if only while resting, was still an improvement.


March 7, 2018

Sometimes pictures are notes to myself in the form of screenshots.  We've lived her for years and still haven't hiked Blue Hen Falls, of the 3 waterfall hike in Cuyahoga.


March 8, 2018

As Zach summarized, I'm not a fan of baseball, but I am a fan of spiders.


March 9, 2018

Tastings for a potential restaurant launch with one of Zach's former clients and his signature product, D'e'te sauce.


March 10, 2018

I really enjoyed my first time seeing Rent.  I recognized a lot of the soundtrack, the pace was quick, and the talent was impressive.


March 11, 2018

 Henry is such a babydoll when she sleeps.

The little crocuses my mum planted thought it was spring.  They're now buried in snow again.


February 27, 2018

The Playhouse Square preview included a discussion with the first female pilot from American Airlines, who was also an inspiration for a role in Come From Away, a musical about a city in Nova Scotia that took on several downed planes on September 11.  


February 28, 2018

Silly Henry girl.


March 1, 2018

A bathroom this clean and shiny deserves documentation.


March 2, 2018

Handsome Copper, in a rare moment actually drinking.


March 3, 2018

We took Zach's parents to our favorite, and recently renovated bar, for some of our favorite brews and pizza.


March 4, 2018

Marriage is sharing a bed and figuring out how to double the covers.
