birthday polaroids: 2 and 26

Last Wednesday, Alice and I celebrated our birthdays together. She turned two and I turned 26. My digital camera hasn’t been focusing well lately (I have to get the lens recalibrated or whatever), so I turned to my Polaroid and a few packs of expired film. Might as well use it because the quality’s not getting better.

These look like how instagrams are meant to look. :)

We had a small party with friends and family at our house–angel food cake, bubbles, sidewalk chalk. Tiny pizzas, round rice krispie bars, and little round cheeses–moon-shaped food. The kids played with moon dough–white homemade play-doh with gray swirls. Alice got lots of books, a moon that hangs on her wall and lights up with changing phases, and sewing cards.

That night I went to the opening party for Big Omaha, a two-day entrepreneurship conference here in town. More on that later, I think.

Happy birthday dear Alice.
Polaroids are fun.

    I just love the way these look. They remind me of MY childhood photos and also my grandmother. What a fantastic keepsake!

The Local List! Meet the Airbnb Team in Omaha

Things

I love my apartment so much. I'm near all my favorite restaurants, less than a block away from my office, and everything is exactly how I like it. I just cleaned and polished all my wood floors and today Alice washed all the windows. I enjoy taking care of my things and maintaining the space. Every thing is a nice thing, every thing feels more luxurious, and you want fewer things, when you care for what you have.

Creep on my apartment, a haven for all things feminine.

I just finished a particularly heavy cleaning session with Alice and wanted to share. It seems like 4 1/2 is when they really start getting useful...she did a GREAT job cleaning the dishes, wood floors, windows, tabletops, mirrors, and dusting. I just organized and folded laundry. New Airbnb guest (a radio DJ!) coming tomorrow, and we can't wait to host her. Until then, take a look. I love where I live.
