Happy birthday to me! ⋆ Lindsay Docherty Photography

Happy birthday to me!

Personal

BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!

Mine, to be precise. It’s 11am and I’m parched and dehydrated from my party last night. Don’t confuse this for the post-party hangovers of my 20s that resulted from plenty of booze and uncomfortable shoes. This feeling is the result of an overabundance of salt from my CHEESE PARTY. Oh yes.

I am beyond proud of my friends who contributed about 18 different kinds of delicious lactose products. Here are some of the winners: a bright green pesto gouda, cinnamon asiago, mango stilton, a Dutch gouda that was special ordered by my friend Neil across the pond, a mustard seed cheddar called Red Dragon, bucheron, cracked pepper Polly-O string cheese, gruyere, a robiola that had divided appreciation, Armenian mozzarella string cheese, and so so sooooo many more. It was a dairy lover’s dream. There was also a crazy assortment of accoutrements: homemade orange honey, apples, dried figs, walnuts, crackers out the wazoo, 85% dark chocolate, raspberries, jams, breads, and fruits.

My fridge is now fully stocked for a month of grilled cheeses, omelets, quiches, and whatever else I can mix together with my fromage.

And because I have the Oh, snap! Photo Studio at my disposal, I can show you some of what went down!

Holiday 2007 Part II
Fast forward a few weeks to December 22nd when Rich, Emma, and I traveled to Berlin, Maryland (basically Ocean City, MD) to celebrate Christmas with my mom and uncle. A good time was had by all. There was the obligatory putting-the-santa-hat-on-the-dog and fire potatoes my uncle swore by (yeah, those black nuggets aren't coal).We watched Scrooged, a family tradition, and opened all of the gifts Christmas Eve since we had to leave early on Christmas. My awesome gift of the year is my brand-spanking new photography case with wheels and everything.* I now have license to bring even more stuff. Yay!*Cancun was the Xmas gift between Rich and ...

I Ran the Disneyworld Marathon to Stop MS
People run marathons all the time. I know this and yet the process felt so personal. Perhaps it’s because all of the training is solo and because I do it all for me.  I’m not competing against anyone but myself. Working up to the race took hours upon hours of running, logging over 1000 miles last year in anticipation for my very first 26.2 miles in Orlando, Florida for the Disney World Marathon last Sunday. In 2011 I completed Philly’s Broad Street Run in May, the Chicago Rock n Roll half marathon in August, and the Las Vegas nighttime Rock n Roll half marathon in December. When I started running 2.5 years ago, I never thought I’d r ...

July Desktop Images
May and June were huge this year. I’ve never been so busy in my life. I’m still going through the thousands of images to get wedding images out to my incredible brides and grooms. I’m thankful for July’s heat that seems to slow down the weddings and give me time to grab a breath and get to more post processing before the fall season comes along and wallops me.Perhaps some of you are teachers and are collectively celebrating the beginning of summer. Or maybe you’re a 9 to 5er with a few weekends to spare down the shore. In any case, think of me slaving away at the computer… and grinning at all of the memories I’ve been so lucky to share ...
