Photoblog: Free For All Friday

It’s Photoblog Friday! This edition is going to be a little bit of a free for all, with highlights from the last two weeks. Let’s get started!

My favorite thing that happened over the last two weeks was that I got my very first iPhone. I’m so excited! My prior Android was so slow, sluggish, and nonresponsive. The OS on the iPhone is so much faster, I kind of can’t believe it. I can pull up information in an instant and not wait for an eternity at the black screen of death. Yippee! Also, I’m already totally addicted to Instagram. You can find me here.


I’ve been baking a ton of bread lately. And it’s been coming out delicious, if I do say so myself.


John gave me a new pair of checkered Vans slip ons for Christmas (my favorite shoes of all time because I am a 15 year old boy). My prior pair were a little beat up, don’t you think?


On Monday everyone had the day off so a bunch of friends had lunch at the always lovely Henrietta’s Table in Harvard Square.

On Tuesday night a group of coworkers and I went to The Paint Bar in Newton. The Paint Bar is basically an art class where you go and paint a selected painting (ours was a riff on Van Gogh’s Sunflowers). The instructor guides everyone step-by-step through the whole process which was totally great for our group of non-artists. In fact, that’s kind of the schtick. It’s for all skill levels and the instructor gives you structure with her guidance as well as the freedom to get creative. Oh, and there always the bar part of The Paint Bar. You can drink wine and beer and eat snacks here as you paint. Genius! Here’s my painting from start to finish:
