The Imposter & The Sexy Mexican..

DAY 169

Allow me to explain.. I wound my way through the Father’s Day Food Truck Rodeo earlier today with my mom & brother. While touring the foody festivities, I bought an “Imposter” at Baguettaboutit & a “Sexy Mexican” cupcake at Sweet Stacey Cakes. [That sentence really didn’t help my case much, but at least everyone is now up-to-speed on the current way to name your food!] It was a bit hot out today, but well worth the wait. I cannot leave Cafe Prost off my list of places I stopped by. I got a Smoked Gouda pretzel there – awesome! B stopped for fro-yo at LoYo (Local Yogurt) & BBQ at Stoke & Smoke BBQ. Monuts Donuts was on my list to try as was American Meltdown, but Monuts was sold out (so close!) & AMeltdown had a lengthy line (I’m sure they would have been worth the wait!). Lots of people, good weather, tons of trucks, & yummy eats!

I even got a picture of each of us (mom, B, & me) while we were out. Where was the daddy – you know, since it was all put together for daddy’s day? He doesn’t like the crowdage, so he stayed home. He was happy with mom taking him out for lunch.  🙂 Simple pleasures.

I am thankful for: my daddy – the man who held me on the way home from the hospital, danced with me, seen me cry, & been the rock (& sometimes the barbed wire I needed).


Is blurry – I know & am sorry!

Remembering What Has Been

Happy Easter!!

Between seeing new friends and old, celebrating my birthday early, and simply thinking about what this holiday truly stands for I’ve been thinking quite a bit about where I’ve been, what I’ve done, and who I’ve met. It’s always been fascinating to me to think about how a person can change in only a year.

In the spirit of remembering and reflecting, I’ve gathered a few photos that I’ve taken in the past (no specific timeline). I can, however, assure you that these were not taken on my Canon EOS T2i. I think they are primarily camera phone pictures. And hopefully the alignment will work for the comment/picture placement – fingers crossed!

First off, ladies & gents.. a picture I took while sitting in the car outside my mother’s doctor’s office. Yes, I know – way more detail than necessary. 🙂 Note to self: You’re creativity thrives in moments of boredom.

Next is actually a painting I did in the 7th grade with my favorite phrase cut up, laying on top. Nothing like mixed media!! 

This picture is of my most-prized piece of what I’ve deemed “Sharpie Art.” I was a band geek for 3 years and music has always meant a lot to me. This is the best way I’ve found to express that. 🙂

 I visited the greatest family ever (that I used to babysit for) last summer. We took a number of little trips while I was there. One trip was to a little island called Boy Scout Island. The boys ventured off into the “crazy jungle” and the girls hung out in the boat. I took pictures!

 This was a picture I took on my way to visit the aforementioned family. I traveled by train, – Angels & Airwaves keeping me company on my iPod, while reading Eat, Pray, Love. Oh the details.. I’m a self-professed elephant – I’ll remember details until I leave this earth.

I was the proud director and subject of this photo shoot – graduation pictures! My daddy was the photographer. He did a lovely job with this picture, if I do say so myself. 🙂

I have a fascination with taking pictures while in my car. This particular picture has always been a favorite of mine! Powerlines and all. 🙂

My best friend and I were cruising the streets of a nearby neighborhood and stopped to take a picture of what is going to be his future way, way off in the future.

Love the  beach! And especially the sea shells!! Not to mention B&W photos! That is all. 🙂

And to close out this look at past photos, a picture of where I’m headed – Sleepy time! I have an odd habit of taking pictures of pillows. This happens to be one of those pictures.

I’ll hang on to these photos for as long as possible. I love looking at documentation of where I’ve been and thinking of how far I’ve come. One of the many reasons I love photography!
