He walks around and keeps saying “dawg” even when there isn’t a dog around. Sticks to a word for a couple of days and then goes to another one. Although, this kid does love dogs. Biggest smile on his face when he sees one. #beerdsleyjrchronicles

Inspirational help needed: I have just a few more shots left on my film camera (Fuji film 400, Canon AE1, 50mm) and would like to finish it up this weekend but I feel I’ve lost all sense of being inspired by something to take a photo. Suggestions on getting back some photo inspiration is welcome. Supposed to be warm this weekend too. What do you do to get inspired?

Let me start out by saying I truly hate cooking from the very bottom of my heart. Unfortunately my mother did not pass on her love of cooking genes to me. I’d prefer to clean the bathroom than cook. Yes, to that extent.
.
.
Ever since the little man could eat solids, I’ve been forcing myself to make homemade meals from scratch for him most days of the week because it’s healthier. I happened upon @smittenkitchen a while back but never really tried out her recipes, just admired them and wished I could make them. One day I stopped wishing and started making. I haven’t looked back since. .
.
While I still don’t like cooking (look, it’s a chore), I look forward to flipping through her recipes online and in her new cook book (thank you again @randa_grams!) each week as I meal plan. The way she explains everything, she’s not only inspiring but she makes it EASY and oh my goodness the recipes are delicious.
.
.
I’m not being paid to say any of this, but take it from someone who abhors cooking - this cookbook and her other online recipes make me want to get into our god awful 1980s-falling-apart kitchen and cook a meal. Thank you Deb Perelman for inspiring me to cook and make delicious meals for my family!

Not ready to go back to work. Can I get another couple of paid weeks off? #beerdsleyjrchronicles

If you have a kid and don’t dress them up in ridiculous clothing then I don’t know what you’re doing with your life. Or theirs. #beerdsleyjrchronicles

Sitting in the middle of Whole Goods flipping through a book. As you do. #beerdsleyjrchronicles

I have a couple of regrets in my life (I’m sure we all do). One very big one is not pursuing photography while at school. Or taking classes outside of school (since my university at the time didn’t offer a degree in it). I wish I could have taken classes on all things film, from how to work a camera and getting to know it, to various techniques, to developing photos. And then I wish I could have taken classes on digital photography. I don’t think I would have ended up where I am today nor would I be friends with or know the people who are in my life today. That thought makes me sad, and yet at the same time, as each year passes I wonder what the hell I’m even doing with my life, sitting behind a desk, everyday, all day for 8 hours. What a waste.
.
.
I’m tired. I have no time in my life to pursue something I love immensely and learn more about it. But most of all, I hope and wish that my son does not end up like me. That he finds something he is passionate about in life that doesn’t require him to sit behind a damn desk all day everyday. Something that will get him outside, go explore, learn, LIVE. Because what I’m doing right now isn’t living; I’m wasting away, slowly.

Moana is babysitting as mama does some work and hopes she doesn’t pass out because SOMEONE refuses to sleep like a proper human throughout the night and instead insists on screaming for no reason. Going on almost 17 months now of the crappiest sleep ever. It’s a good thing he’s cute. 😑 Payback in his teenage years is going to be ever so fun when I wake him up every weekend at 6:30am by using an air horn. #beerdsleyjrchronicles

Daily mess. It always feels like our house - and lives - are in a constant state of disorder and chaos. Send all the coffee. #beerdsleyjrchronicles

Tried to take a family photo with the little man and sure enough as soon as the timer hit 0 and shot off, he planted his face forward right into the book. 😂 It’s a keeper. #beerdsleyjrchronicles

1993 nerd alert 🤓 Fashion was impeccable. Glasses as big as our faces. Braces galore. And f-a-n-n-y packs. This was our 9th grade class trip to Turkey. Well half of us went to Turkey and the other half went to Nepal (we had a choice between the two). I can’t recall how exactly I got my hands on this photo, but I did and 24 years later (WTF TWENTY-FOUR YEARS?!) I can still look back at it. I hope @caldwellal doesn’t murder me for posting this. Love you lady. So glad we are still friends after all these years and when it warms up, we need to schedule another cup of coffee/glass of wine together! #tbt
