Hand Me Downs

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

I think my favorite thing so far about having two kids is seeing Truman in my favorite Spencer baby clothes. These duckie jammies were one of my favorite things that Spencer had as a tiny baby and now they fit Truman. A little earlier than they fit Spencer. At 11 days, he almost has outgrown the footies.

Wordless Wednesday: Rocket Park

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

Spencer has a new favorite park and even though it is out of town and a bit of a drive for us, we’ve been twice in two weeks. I love the old school equipment and gorgeous setting; Spencer loves that in one of the swings he can literally touch the trees. Plus, it abuts a riding path so there are bonus horsey sightings.

Photo Madness

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

I got a new laptop (yay!) and I imported a corrupted iphoto library (boo!) and it has caused any number of problems. Part of the problem is that my iphoto library is huge, nearly 100 GB and 20K + photos. I like to keep them all accessible (which is dumb, but my laptop backs up to the cloud and I worry about losing a backup drive) and I’m trying to find a workable photo management system. iPhoto seems to get a little clunky up at that size, but if I split out the libraries, I have to reboot iPhoto to choose a new library.

I’ve been googling some options and here is what I’ve found so far:

  1. Continue using iPhoto and wait for it to implode.
  2. Split iPhoto into multiple libraries and buy Aperture to do light editing and toggle between libraries.
  3. Use Picasa to edit and access photos, but I still need to figure out where to store the darn things. Picasa is more of an overlay than a management system, unless I’m not understanding how it works.
  4. Export dud photos (especially the 1000s of early Spencer pictures that aren’t great or there are a ton of the same thing) and store them on the cloud or maybe Flickr and set them to private.
  5. Get Lightroom.  I must admit that Lightroom freaks me out. I got the 30 day trial once and could barely wrap my brain around it.

Is there something I’m missing? I want a simple import to something and have most of my pictures right there sort of system. And I am a bit of a photo hoarder so telling me to delete all the things probably won’t help. What do you use?
