Last week I had the pleasure of attending my first local hockey game.  Our minor league team is called the Ontario Reign (probably a subdivision of the Kings).  We started the night at the Lazy Dog Cafe, which I'm sure is a corporate chain restaurant, but they seem to treat each location with enough thought for design, menu, & details that the corporate part of it is hardly noticeable.  Jonathan & I got there a bit late, so our friends had already started on a table's worth of appetizers.  The main courses were perfectly portioned, & you could tell that a good amount of thought was put into each plate.  After chowing down, we headed over to the arena & watched most of a hockey game.

Remembering to take my camera with me everywhere is something new for me, it doesn't come quite naturally yet.  I also found out that I have to carry the biggest purse I can so as to not have my life overflow out of my purse & spill out everywhere.  I've downsized my purse's contents quite a bit in the last year, so having room for a camera is coming a lot easier than it did before.  

In other news, it's supposed to be almost up to 90­°F here in Southern California by Wednesday!  Once it feels remotely like Spring time here, Summer comes up & pushes Spring & all it's bugs & flowers out of the way to begin the process of drying out the native grasses & covering our land in gold.  We are the golden state for a reason.  (If you haven't seen this, I'd recommend a road trip up the California 101, or a look at the book The California Surf Project.)  Hopefully I can take a mini road trip & get some photos up on the blog so you all can enjoy this warmth with me!  

Thanks for visiting.


  1. I know exactly what you mean about bringing your camera long with you. I took mine out with me for the first time with friends this weekend. It felt awkward but I think only to me. I hope the more we do it, the more natural it becomes!

  2. You two are wicked sweet. Isn't hockey a fun game to watch? I hate watching sports but I really enjoy hockey.

  3. That food looks pretty darn yummy, and it seems like you guys had a great time at the hockey game. I'm right there with you about trying to remember to bring my camera everywhere with me, and actually using it when I do have it hehe.

  4. For moments like these I am happy carrying my camera around all the time!
