Day #6: favorite food
I have to be honest, I am not doing so well with this whole 30 consecutive days of blogging, but I am doing my best! I will get through 30 posts, until then I’m still on day 6.
I have been a little busy and that is why I have not blogged. The last few weeks I have been trying to get a passport, working, finalizing everything to start my masters and trying to do things that make me happy and allow me to relax! Grief has a sneaky way of creeping up on you to create anxiety, feeling sad and everything in between so you have to find things that work for you to not push away the grief but ways to manage and heal through it and that’s exactly what I do when I bake and take photos. Side note, I got my passport so I can go abroad! I will be here waiting for it to come in the mail in the meantime because the passport agent would not accept my Prime Membership 2 day shipping so I will have to be patient for a few weeks! I love food and I love capturing food with my camera, I think I love food photography a little more than taking portraits of people. While I’d love to just hop on a plane and try a bunch of different foods and take pictures of the excellent food, that is not going to happen tomorrow so, for now, I’ll take pictures of the things I bake.
I love baking but more importantly, I LOVE baking and eating cupcakes. Rather than sit at home just watching Bachelor in Paradise (BIP) all night or falling asleep at 7 PM, I baked in between Carly and Evan’s wedding and the actual BIP episodes. Tonight, I made a gluten-free vanilla cupcake with chocolate buttercream. Baking gluten-free is difficult to get that same taste as non-gluten free things because it is missing that key ingredient of the protein: gluten. Although, I live that GF lifestyle, I do splurge and eat some non-gluten free things every once in a while (a girl’s gotta eat, okay?). These cupcakes tonight though, were on point with taste and how they looked! (I wish I could eat cupcakes all day and not be at risk for diabetes or other health issues, I guess I can dream, right?) But it also helps when you have a great camera! I recently got a new Canon camera and honestly, my new baby does a great job at capturing everything especially these little beauties.
I use a Canon EOS Rebel T6 for all of my work and I literally took these pictures, connected to wi-fi and downloaded these pictures to upload them to my Instagram and blog! How cool is that?! Enjoy swooning over these pictures!
