He Looks How I Feel

e're home from being gone four weeks and finally settling back into the regular hum of life. I suppose I could pretend the laundry was done and put away, or, heck, even pretend I'VE UNPACKED MY BAG, but why front? My biggest accomplishment in the past two days was putting on yoga pants and getting the steps, Internet, baby steps.

Polo and I have mostly taken refuge under a blanket, talking only when necessary. And by necessary I mean turning to my suitcase and asking, Why haven't you unpacked yourself?!?

Today we're going to LA to see the premiere of Hunger Games...and if I go in something nicer than yoga pants, I'm going to high-five myself.

Vanessa Balenovich - Thank you so much for doing this!! The night was truly amazing!! I can't beging to tell you how The FIX has chaged my way of thinking not only in my business but also my life. There are so many times during the week that I go back to points you made. I must be rubbing off on my family -the other day my daughter said- "what would Jasmine do?" -LOL. Just wanted to say thank you for all the hours and hard work you, JD and Polo put into this and know that you have touched so many people in such a positive way. xo  03.27.12 - 6:36am
Anil Fernandes - Sorry this is off the mood here. I had a question. I noticed that Polo is like smooth satin white and usually merges with the background light? do you ever face challenge to seperate him from the background and avoid merging him. I sometimes face similar problem when photographing my pet cat and He is super white on his face and abdomen and has super black back and shooting him b/w because whichever i shoot (over or underexpose) it merges with the background some or the other way .   03.26.12 - 2:21pm
