Fill the Frame

In photography, the technique of filling the frame is a common one - and a good one. Many pictures are taken from too far away, not up close and personal. To fill the frame, you need to zoom in or move your feet and this weekend, we did both. We traveled and zoomed around, filling the weekend with lots of fun, people, places and adventures.

For Thanksgiving, we headed back to GP to spend the holiday with family. Paul bucked tradition and made a wonderful beef tenderloin. We had a lovely time. I spent a good part of the day reading The Help - what an incredible book.

We did some visiting and checked in with Paul's friends John and Maria with their new dog, Enzo. I spent some time taking Enzo's picture. He is a cute little doggy and very photogenic ....when he will sit still. We also visited the Tworeks - our favorite Livonia peeps! We all went out to lunch at Red Robin and had a whole lot of fun taking pictures - including their new family member, Franco. He is a cutie too.

Saturday night we celebrated Paul's birthday and stayed downtown at the JW Marriott. We had dinner at six.one.six which was a culinary delight. It was crazy good and surprisingly reasonable for such a neat, trendy place. I had mac and cheese with seafood. Just heaven. We also walked around downtown and through the hotel. It's a beautiful and I will be posting pictures over at my photography blog.

Samson spent the weekend with his peeps at Whiskers Pet Resort. He always comes home with exhausted, but very, very happy. I took a few days off this week to catch up on things around the house, recover, relax, read a little and write some.

Enjoy the week!

Aaaah!!! I couldn't think of that name of this book you told me about last night, but what did come to mind was "Left to Tell" by Imaculee Ilibigiza who is coming to the January Series. Awesome story! Read it if you get a chance :)
