Oh Murky

>> Friday, March 27, 2009

I'm at Murky Coffee in Arlington.. my old stomping ground. Don't really have time to be "blogging" right now since I actually need to spend the next 4 or so hours being really productive... but... I would be kicking myself if I didn't post while I am here.

I am very much enjoying my caramel latte. I really wanted to take a picture of it but I am self-conscious enough not to do that (Murkyites tend to be a little on the snobby, intellectual side).

My morning started by metroing out to Old Town where I walked down to La Madeleine for breakfast and then headed up to meet my advisor in person for the first time at the VT extended campus in Alexandria. Kind of insane that I've emailed this lady 100s of times and watched her on a tv for 2 hours every week last semester (polycom class) and never actually met her in person. She was pretty much as I had expected.. her hair was a little darker than I had thought and she had really blue eyes. Nice lady overall.. she was really busy so I only spent about 5 minutes saying hi. 

I had a blast walking around King Street. I spent most of the time people watching and tried to soak up as much as I could while I was there. Funny how you take where you're living for granted. I think pretty much everyone does it. 
On the way out, I found a really cute cafe that just opened. The lady who owned the store made me a "specialty" turkey and swiss on wheat.. I had no idea what was going to be on it so I was a little nervous. It ended up having spicy honey mustard, pesto and some other spread (maybe sundried tomato?). She also added a little garden salad to the plate with a great balsamic vinaigrette dressing.  It was very yummy and I was really glad to spend 6.50 there instead of at a generic sandwich shop. 

Probably my favorite part of the morning was watching an older indian man play a harmonica from his car while driving. He must have been using his knees to steer, which is scary, but I'm still glad he chose to entertain the public proudly with his windows rolled down. 

Tonight I'm meeting some dear friends out for dinner and drinks and I'm so excited. I don't think I could have planned this weekend any better. 

Random side note... there's a guy journaling at the table I'm sitting at. I am so close to asking him what he's writing about but I know that would be weird.. but it's nice to see that people still write in journals. Prob a very healthy habit.

About Me

My photo
Tia Nicole Photography has launched this summer after many practice photo sessions and the encouragement of some dear friends and family ("Life Through Tia's Lens" was a recommendation of my good friend, Kristin, who has been an avid supporter the whole way through!). This blog has documented the process from the beginning and also dates back to some older rantings during grad school and football seasons. Feel free to get to know me and my work. I like to focus primarily on natural shots, true emotions and beautiful landscapes. I also absolutely adore kids and pets so you will find a good bit of my work in these areas. Feel free to contact me anytime! I love blog comments!

My pup, Rylynn!
