    Hello 2022


    Here it is six days late, the new and improved, SAJ TRADITIONAL 2022 CALENDAR! I added a bunch of holidays in there so that opens up room for more errors, knowing me. So I’m naming it draft 2 just in case there are more drafts coming up. Hope you guys like it! (As per usual, leave your edits in the comments.)

    I have a lot to update you about. Christmas, our doomed trip to the cabin in the snow…My adventures with my car getting old AND a sleep study! Oh, and a photoshoot with pink cupcakes! It’s super cute. Unfortunately, I have a ton of client work to knock out first but I’m promising myself to get back here soon. Happy 2022!

    Love You Babygirl!


    Every Sunday we drive about half an hour to Payam’s mom’s for Persian brunch. When we pull off the freeway at her exit, there is a wall behind a Target that is covered with colorful graffiti. I gaze at it every time we are there waiting for the light to turn. I always think we should go back and take pictures but we always forget because on the way back we don’t see it. Out of sight out of mind kind of thing.


    This time I mentioned it to Payam and Payam being Payam who remembers little things like this,  humored me and drove us there after brunch. We drove around the backside of Target, hopped a short wall, and squeezed through a chain-link fence. It butts up against a homeless camp of sorts. We see people lounging in the bushes and bumming cigarettes off each other. Shopping carts and trash litter the abandoned space. Nobody cares what it looks like.


    In that perfect spot between abandon and entropy, there is an open space for creativity! I know my opinion might not be the majority but doesn’t it bright an otherwise very boring space?   colors-of-graffiti

    And until I have anything better to say these pictures will brighten up this space. :)
