In honor of her blog's birthday-- Jamie is giving away some postcards of her photography. And I am writing about "From Me To You" not only because I want some lovely pictures-- but also because, well... I really do admire and adore this blog.
And let me tell you why:
First: I really admire how Jamie is able to communicate her lifestyle through her photos. Not just pictures of what she does-- but the way she frames and styles and lights communicate so much about how she chooses to live.
And I want that life. I do.
Second: Jamie makes photography accessible. Not in "I can totally do that" way -- but in "this is an every day part of being and I'd like to be more of a part of it" way.
Third: Jamie gave me this hairstyle.
And, as we know, I want to look like I stepped out of 1890. So...
Fourth: "From Me To You" (and also "The City Sage") made me feel like there was a community of really talented, creative women blogging -- and I wanted to become a part of it. The enthusiasm for beauty and art is infectious in these blogs... really.
Fifth: I really just think that the pictures are beautiful. They brighten my little cubicle worn day.
So... Jamie, Elena over here at Drawing the Eye wishes "From Me To You" a very very happy first blog birthday.
We hope to follow in your footsteps!
