When it rains, it pours – more than one person said that to me last week. It began with small stresses – flare-ups with eye issues, etc – but last Monday night all other priorities dissipated when Gregor was victim to a violent mugging at our doorstep.
Thank you to those who heard the news and expressed concern via Twitter. It was a horrific and unsettling experience, but as of yesterday he was back to work and solid foods, with only a few remaining bruises and a broken nose left to show of the ordeal. It seems odd to say we were lucky, but I’m well aware it could have been much worse.
After a week of recovery and pain meds at home, Gregor was antsy to get out of the apartment. We had plans to spend Sunday in aimless wanderings and adventures. I even had some new clothes to show off – an eagerly awaited package from Romwe had arrived amidst the chaos of the week. Naturally, the minute we stepped out the door the sky opened above us.

As our plans were forced indoors, we took the opportunity to play a bit with the camera and the glow from the windows. Photos were not as clear as we’d hoped, but they were perfect for me to experiment with editing techniques. I kind of like the results. They have a fun pin-up feel – particularly with the tied up shirt and high-waisted shorts!
