Goal? Lose a few pounds by the time I return to Ireland. Stumbling block? Finding pictures from a trip to Abbey Garden Tea Room a while back.
I’ve often said, “I can’t be good all the time!” But, I think giving in to temptation too often can create problems and add pounds. So, instead of driving down to the tea room at lunch today, I saved money and my shrinking waistline by cooking for myself and keeping it healthy. I also brewed my own Earl Grey tea, and you know what? It tastes just as good as theirs anyway….
I’ve stated often throughout my blog that I love living in Bellingham. Most of my spare time (when not out on a photowalk) is spent in Fairhaven at places like Tony’s Coffee House, Harris Avenue Cafe, Village Books, Abbey Garden Tea Room, and a long list of other favorites.
I’ve noticed that in many of the local coffee houses and eateries, photographers and other artists are able to display their work. Thinking it would be great exposure, I decided to inquire at Harris Avenue Cafe if they would be interested in allowing me to display my work. Tony’s Coffee Shop and Harris Avenue Cafe are under the same owner and business manager. So, I was invited to display my work at Tony’s in September and then at the Cafe in December!
After the initial excitement of being accepted, I started pouring through my photos trying to narrow down a few to actually frame and display. Here are some of the choices I’ve settled upon. You can view my galleries on Smug Mug if you’d like to view additional work.
So, go visit Tony’s Coffee House in September! Aside from my photography being there, they have great coffee and a delicious selection of pastries. Make it one of your next local hang outs!!
