sweet summertime : bucket list update 2

It’s time for another update! Even though fall doesn’t technically begin until the end of September, summer always seems to wind down in August. I live for summer, but can I say I’m already excited for fall?! This year has LEGIT flown by (and I know, I’m old for saying that), but how is the […]

alice’s adventures in wonderland

I have been wanting to see the Exposition Park Rose Garden since spring – and what better opportunity to visit than an Alice inspired shoot amongst the roses? I think by now the whole universe knows how dear Alice is to my heart, so I was pretty jazzed about this shoot. I also tend to be the one behind […]

make you smile

There’s a lot of hurt going on in the world today. My husband and I were talking about whether it’s actually more prevalent or we’re just more exposed to it in this internet age. I know there are a lot of daily injustices and tragedies that never make the news, and I know this isn’t the first time […]

instagram spotlight

It’s no secret around here that I love Instagram. Like. love. it. It’s my favorite phone app and really the only reason I wanted a smart phone (I’m only half joking). Anyway, I follow a lot of people on Instagram. There are so many accounts I follow that inspire me in a million ways, but […]

sweet summertime : bucket list update

This past weekend we kicked off summer into full force. Sometimes I get made fun of for planning everything to a T, but honestly, it’s generally the only way to make sure things happen.

Summer is upon us, and I am ecstatic. Something about this season, especially this year, breathes new life into me. Sure, with this sudden heatwave I’m having flashbacks of the unbearable, unsleepable heat in our apartment last year. But even though the heat drains and exhausts you, it makes you feel like you are really living, you […]

springtime

Spring is in the air – and with that, warmer temperatures. It’s a little absurd how happy the sunshine makes me. AND CAN WE TALK ABOUT THE LONGER DAYS. I’ve tried to take lunch outside as often as I can to soak it all in and am anxiously awaiting summer. But until then, here’s what […]

one little word

It’s New Year’s Eve – I’m at the office today and making a trip to San Diego this evening to celebrate. The office is slow, and we’re going to have an impromptu mixed drinks party this afternoon to kick off the new year. I’m reflecting on this past year, and though I’ve shared my goals […]

new year

Yes, I’m jumping on the bandwagon of New Year resolutionists. But, I make them every year along with my bajillion other lists of goals. I could say that this year will be different – that I’ll stick to my resolutions and fulfill all my goals – but I say that every year along with everyone else. All this is to […]

for the love of film

Hey remember how I used to have a film camera that I would take photos with? Here’s a roll of film I never shared, and I figured it’s about time to – moments captured from the end of summer as it transitioned to fall. There are no photos of me and a lot of photos […]
