Tuesday Misc.

Happy Post-Holiday-Back-To-Real-Life-Tuesday! Here's what we've been up to:

Zach:

  • This has been the week of getting caught up on some work that's been on my to do list for a long time. Little website and blog and business things that I'm excited to start putting together. Should be able to begin sharing some next week!
  • Speaking of which, Jodi and I have been brainstorming a photo series that will focus on the role that love plays in all kinds of relationships from newly dating couples to ones that have been married for 60 years. If you're confused, so are we. Still figuring out exactly what it'll be but I think it's gonna be cool. Stay tuned.
  • We finished up an awesome looking set of bags boards so the next project to start planning is a doghouse for Glencoe.
  • What I do know is that it's gonna look wicked cool and he probably won't care at all.
  • Sports talk. The Athletic is a new site and is doing something crazy cool: bring together almost all of the best sports writers under one roof, give them free reign to make amazing content, put no ads on the site. In a world where long form journalism is slowly being replaced by 140-character hot takes, it's incredibly refreshing to see something like this come together.

Jodi:

  • Holy moly this weekend was full to the brim of amazing. Unglued Summer Camp again made me feel like I know some of the best humans in existence. I got to teach hip hop, candle making, and enter a lip synch battle. What a time to be alive!
  • We shot a half Syrian wedding on Saturday and not only was the couple full of joy and absolutely delightful, but we saw the groom choreograph a dance with his mom for their first dance! Plus there was something inescapably beautiful in watching the Syrian side of the family teach the guests how to perform Syrian wedding or group dances. We are more alike than we know.
  • Last week my friend Sarah and I grilled peaches, squash, and tomatoes and then dined al fresco. Is there anything better than a grilled peach?! Probably just eating a grilled peach with people you love. I'm excited for fall, but not quite ready to give up all the summer nights spent on our deck.
  • Zach and I made bags boards! If people still said snazzy, they'd definitely say our boards were snazzy. Now I can practice before getting my tush kicked when I sub in the bags league here.

Happy Trails!
