a portrait of my son | once a week in 2014

Owen - We just got some film back so maybe I'm stretching the rules of this whole thing, but whatever. I love this picture too much. You are so up for any adventure and when you get going you are so into it. We went for ride on Grandpa Joe's Boston Whaler on the most perfect summer night. you drove with Dad and I took pictures of the river. It's a perfect memory.

a portrait of my son | once a week in 2014

Owen - Somehow I managed to snag a photo of you looking right at me. So often I'll try to get your eyes and you are not interested in standing still. Other times though, you'll give me a silly grin and say "cheeeeeeese." I like when I catch you as you: a bit tired, but ready for the next adventure.

Dooby's Coffee - Mt. Vernon Morning

A few weeks ago, I got to join the bakers at Dooby's Coffee to document their morning routine. Katie, the pastry chef, lead me through their process starting bright and early at 5 AM in the gorgeous Mt. Vernon neighborhood of Baltimore. I tagged along for the dozen or so recipes the three bakers were working on and have to admit, my mouth was watering near the end there. They treated me to an amazing blueberry muffin with passionfruit glaze during our bread rising downtime and the Counter Culture Coffee Dooby's serves couldn't have made for a more perfect breakfast. 

The morning breezed by with flour and duck fat and walnuts and lavender all making their appearance. The recipe we were following was for a Walnut Sourdough in preparation for a MakeTribe event coming up in the fall (keep your eyes peeled!). After the dough was mixed, it was placed in floured baskets to give it that awesome circular pattern you see towards the end. Thrown into individual Dutch ovens, the loaves spent a good while getting all brown and crispy in the oven, as Katie worked on a few other loaves for that mornings cafe supply. Dooby's offers a bread club where patrons receive a different loaf of amazing bread every week. Oh to live closer. The menu here at Dooby's is just mouth watering, from a caramelized onion and gruyere scone to a Ginger Chicken and Avocado on Ciabatta Sandwich (which I got to leave with:). Following Katie, Kathy and Jean really inspired me to bake more at home, even if my results may not be quite as perfect as theirs. Just the act of kneading dough and having to wait for the rise and the amazing smell of the crust as it bakes is enough to make me stock up on ingredients at the grocery store. But to get that heavenly loaf made by Katie, get yourself to Dooby's soon.

Make sure to check out Make Tribe and their awesome skill suppers and craft workshops! (psst. there is a free one coming up at Madewell and its gonna be good).

Thanks so much to Katie, Kathy and Jean for letting me join in on their morning. 
Enjoy!

a portrait of my son | once a week in 2014

Owen -  Dad was building a backdrop frame and you wanted nothing more than to be helpful. You asked if you could help and you worked hard. You have such a strong desire to work hard and we see it with how you play with your toys and help clean up. This will come in handy in the future.

a portrait of my son | once a week in 2014

Owen - catching up a bit and letting Dad take the camera for the bottom photo. We cut your hair again and you grew up instantly. Your latest thing to say is "O.K." but you say it like you're joking: "aaaakayyy". I love it.

Our Different Sameness: July


Velocity. This girl never stops. She fits right in with the older kids now and is some times more energetic than all three of the older ones put together. She is as happy as can be and just wants to keep moving and exploring and trying new things. Ella just turned 1 last month and I am just amazed at how quickly she has gone from a tiny infant to a crazy little toddler. Life never slows down and like Ella it just keep slooking for ways to keep us moving. At the beginning of this summer, I was looking at the calendar thinking "ahh, this will be such a nice quiet break from the craziness of the rest of the year!" But somehow, the weeks fill up, the months pass by before I realize they started and Owen has developed a new hilarious trick. Nothing we do can slow it down except being in the moment and enjoying the pieces that make up the whole. Enjoying Ella in her element is so much fun. Helping her up the ladder and down the slide is sweet. Guiding Owen as he learns about frogs and dirt and water. All of things can add to a busy day, but slowing down and watching and participating is what helps me.

This post is part of a group blog : Our Different Sameness
Make sure to check out the other additions to this months prompt all about Velocity.
