day 230 : another one done!

day 230: My newest model is now officially finished. Now if I was only packed for our trip I could get some sleep. I guess that will have to wait for the plane. After all there’s plenty of time to sleep on a 10 hour flight… to FRANCE! Yes that’s right… Ben and I will be out for about 2 weeks in Normandy and Paris (with a brief stopover in New York) so posting might be a bit sporadic… but hopefully I’ll get some photos up during the trip. The laptop is coming along!

day 229 : sky on fire

day 229: The last week has been so crazy. If it wasn’t enough that most of San Diego and parts of Orange County and LA were on fire… at the same time Ben and I are trying to pack up for a big trip we’re leaving on this Friday AND I had a model deadline this week. So needless to say I was up VERY late all week. This was the color of the moon (thanks to a smoke-filled sky) sometime in the middle of the night.

day 228 : evacuation with a view

day 228: As my family waited out news of the situation down in San Diego and were “evacuated” to Orange County, they actually moved to a location with a more vivid view of what was going on. Ben and I drove down to meet them for dinner and I was shocked to see how close the fires appeared. While the fires you can see in this photo are quite far away and didn’t pose any real threat to where they were staying, it was quite a reminder of what is going on all around southern California this week. My thoughts are with those who are still evacuated and to those who have lost their homes. Hopefully this will all end soon!

day 227 : fire storm

day 227: What a difference a day makes! When we left San Diego on Sunday night the fires were something that was way out in the east county and not something to worry about at all. By Monday morning it was a totally different story! I spent much of the day listening to or watching the news, as my family headed up to Orange County and out of harm’s way. Luckily everyone is a-ok and our place here in LA was way out of the way of danger as well.
