Trader Joe’s to the rescue!

I came home with lots of good eats, as usual. When I got home from shopping, I opened a package filled with some other yummy treats, including individual almond butter packets and a box of mini Luna Bars – thanks, Mom! I feel like I’m a freshman in college all over again : )

I snacked on a few dried apricots & and handful of raw almonds to hold me over ’til dinner…which was:


  • organic heirloom lettuce
  • tomato
  • avocado
  • cucumber
  • red onion
  • TJ’s low fat Parmesan Ranch
  • TJ’s Garlic & Cheese (monster) Croutons

I quickly realized I enjoy taking pictures during the day so much more. I try not to use the flash, as instructed by the lovely Kath, but since my house is especially dark, it’s difficult not to. I am looking forward to going home, where there is natural light galore!

Do you have any photo suggestions?

    care packages are the best! my photography suggestions are no flash and use the macro setting and use natural light! but i’m still a photography newbie!

      That’s exactly how I try to go about my photography too — no flash + macro + natural light. Have a nice weekend!

    The lighting in my apartment is awful. There is 1 window in the family room! I need all the natural lighting I can get if it means taking photos on my bed :)

    Thanks for checking out my blog! I can’t give you any photo suggestions. I’m forced to use my cell phone for pictures so yours will always be better than mine!

    But Trader Joes = MY LOVE.

    Thanks for checking out my blog – yours looks great. As for the photos, I’m still working on improving mine, but I would just say that maybe buying another lamp would help. I’ve been trying to improve the lighting in my kitchen rather than using the flash – it does make the pictures look much better.
