That little part with the lion and the giraffe had my jaw hitting the desk.

I took a little longer than normal, but my review of the new iPhone 7 Plus hit Tools & Toys yesterday.
This one clocked in around 5,000 words, which is probably too long for most. I guess I had a lot more to say than I originally thought.
Long story short, I’m thankful for a slowly-evolving iPhone. Drastic changes are starting to feel almost stressful — I know how my iPhone has always worked, and I don’t want that to change one iota. I have enough other things to think about during the day, so the last thing I need is an iPhone that cuts ties with its perfectly-operable past.
This is my third iPhone review for Tools & Toys in the last three years. Each year, the review is photographed amidst the yellows and reds of autumn outside. I think the autumn colours complement the ultra-minimal silver iPhone 7 Plus quite well.
As always, head over to Tools & Toys to read — and view — the whole review.

If you listen to Candid at all, you may have heard me go on and on about buying a GoPro shortly before our trip to Europe in June. Of all the photography tools we brought with, the GoPro footage easily houses our most treasured memories. I don’t regret spending the money on the GoPro in the slightest, even if I haven’t touched it since our trip.
This video is a collection of those memories. I’m not videographer, so don’t expect much. And I found myself creating this for Jaclyn more than anyone else, so it may even be a bit sappy for some viewers.
Either way, I figured it was worth sharing.

When I find a way to convince Josh to redo our new home’s backyard, this fire bowl is going to be the center-piece. It’s perfectly minimal and elegant, all at once!
Did either of us mention we bought a house?

I designed and built a new responsive website that saw 3x growth year-over-year in pageviews, unique visitors, and revenue with Tools & Toys.
I still feel my photography and written work look best on Tools & Toys.

Apparently I forgot to point out this review as well.
Our trip to Europe proved many things to me, but one of them was the fact I needed a new wallet. My older Roots wallet couldn’t fit international currency, had far too much leather, and couldn’t carry everything I needed in as efficient a manner as I wanted. I had my eye on a Bellroy Note Sleeve for quite some time, so our Euro trip was the final nail in the Roots wallet’s coffin.
Without a doubt, the Bellroy Note Sleeve is the best wallet I’ve ever owned. It’s minimal, small, and somehow capable of carrying more than my prior wallets. It’s even a nice teal colour, which brings a little pop to my everyday attire.
Check out the review of the Bellroy Note Sleeve on Tools & Toys.
