how i spent my 30th birthday

it all started when we bought this new chair a couple weeks ago. i had this idea that it would be great for taking portraits in. then i thought, hey, i'm turning 30, maybe i should take some self portraits to document this time in my life. put those 2 together and here we are. self portraits are never easy, but when you add moody lighting, a crazy chair and a fun prop it becomes fun.

so i took all of these right before we went out for my birthday and thought i should get one with chris in it too. i'm glad i did. :)

after our little photoshoot, chris took me to a 'new to us' vegan restaurant. the food was very flavorful and yummy. then we decided to go bowling and i kicked chris' butt. happy birthday to me. ;)

total score: Tina = 113; Chris = 109
