A Day In The Life with Allison Jacobs

While I am usually working full time throughout the week, I took these Day in the Life images while we were on summer vacation visiting family and friends in Texas.  This doesn’t illustrate a typical day unless you consider we are always up for an adventure around here (that would be the chasing the squirrel part of this particular day).  This day included sleeping in until 8:00 am, running in the Texas heat (whew, forgot how hot it gets here), lunch with family, visiting with a macaw, watching my uncles catch a wild squirrel that got in the house, air conditioning at Starbucks, playing, and reading.  Well, at least those are the parts of the day I got photographed.  We also ate good food for dinner and played scrabble but those images didn’t make the cut!
