I’m excited to announce that I am going to be part of a FOOD + MORE Week retreat at Santa Fe Photography Workshops in Santa Fe, New Mexico May 2019. I have space for 14 students in my Food Photography for Bloggers class!  This will be my second time to Santa Fe and I am so thrilled to go back. If you’re looking to brush up and/or enhance your food photography skills come take my workshop! We’ll be playing with food, light, and composition. There will also be a Farmer’s Market tour in the mix.  I’d love to have you! Read more about the workshop here:  Food Photography for Bloggers with me, Tracy Benjamin!

    I got 5 years old when I made a cake! LOL :):)

    Also, re: loud restaurants … I’m not a sound engineer, but I am an art teacher and even I know that hanging simple foam-backed boards on the wall can drastically dampen sound and wouldn’t be extremely difficult to integrate into a minimalist design. Eye roll.

    My arm is FAMOUS! tee hee.

    Fifi (who is 8), sat in the car duirng our Thanksgiving trip to Reno from Tacoma for 4hours straight while listening to the audio book of BFG. Not a peep from the backseat, except for a giggle or two! I had a hard time getting her to take off the headphones when we had to stop at the rest stop. She is going to flip when she hears about the Netflix thing!

      That is so awesome! I wish I could get Cooper to listen to one. He has such a short attention span.

    I’m always looking for “beauty in the chaos!)

    Well I’m not 90, but I do love a good cornbread. = )
