Happy Easter 2013!

Happy Easter (though it’s night time) from Vivography! I hope you all had a wonderful day filled with stuffing your faces with delicious food and chocolate and hopefully you didn’t have to work today. (I’m sorry Meijer employees, I know you’re all working because of people like me who can’t stand staying at home.)

This year, for the third year in a row, I did traditional pysanky eggs. Whether or not I explained this last year, let me quickly enlighten you if you don’t know what pysanky is:

Pysanky (which is actually a Ukranian word, not Romanian) is the art of applying wax designs to eggs, dying the eggs, then melting the wax off to reveal white, or variously colored designs underneath the wax. The first year I did this, I attempted the multi-color designs. Never again. Too much work. The white designs a simple and pretty, nonetheless. Here’s my batch this year! (My mom decorated two of the eggs)

Macaroons!

I know. The amount of time between this post and the last hurts my soul too. But, I did this whole like, finishing college and catching up on life and making lists thing. And researching cameras to upgrade to. (AAAAGHH!!)

Anyway, I do have some new pics to finally share with you guys and they might make you hungry, so PREPARE YOURSELVES.

I stopped by Restoration Hardware a few weeks ago and they had free complimentary snacks in the store, INCLUDING MACAROONS. In case you can’t tell by the capitalization, I LOVE macaroons. If you don’t know what macaroons are, here’s  the link to the Wikipedia page that describes it way better than I have the patience to: CLICK ME.

They were delicious, in case you’re wondering.

Old World Traditions & New Discoveries

On the one year anniversary of this blog being up and running, I give you: DETROIT!

Yes, more Detroit. Here are some landscape/architecture shots from the PeaceLoveSpandex shoot from last month. Also, Canada.

P.S. Michigan is the only place in the continental United States that you have to drive south to get to Canada. The more you know.

P.P.S. To all you Romanians out there, Happy Ziua Martisorului! (Check out last year’s first post for the deets on what that is, in case you’re wondering. Click me, I’ll take you there.)
