Hi, Lady..


Mr Man who lives beneath me (literally. I’d never say that as a derogatory thing) said “Hi, Lady!” and proceeded to jump almost as high as his dog to wave to me. In other news, I’ve thus discovered where the smokey smell has been creeping up from.

I met another tenant who also just moved out of his parents’ home so that was a comforting thing in a way.I think the more connections I make, the better the place will seem. In time, B. In time.

Subject number three! My favorite one! ..How awesome of a girlfriend I am. Allow me to let the photo say it all..Enjoy!


Happy Friday, peeps!




Crayola to the Rescue..

It all began last weekend. I moved into my first apartment. I’m living on my own. The actual packing and moving and unpacking of things all went well, but the transition was difficult for a couple days. Not to mention the loveliest part of all – dropping my diamond earring down the drain on night 3.

Night three lead to me discovering a way I’d make myself cheer up. I bought Crayola color swirl bathtub crayons and decided to write goofy messages on my shower walls to make me laugh. Then I realized they work on my coffee table! I’ve been writing lists of things to get on that surface. 

After the night 3 debacle and realizations, things became much better. Not necessarily because of those moments but I think things just clicked. I became more comfortable in this strange new place. I realized I’m going to be ok, and not only that, but I’ll love being independent. It’s what I’ve wanted for so long. I’m growing into it. 

I’ll post pictures of the place once things are settled down and not still lingering in boxes. But until then, enjoy the first messages to meself. : )


Happy days!






Happy Heart Day!

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” – Lao Tzu

“Love is of all passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart, & the senses.” – Lao Tzu

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched- they must be felt with the heart.” – Helen Keller

I attempted to take photos of my most favorite candle holder in a few different situations. There was photo where the sun was coming through the window and I held the holder up to the light so the word “Love” would shine brightly on the wall. Another where “Love” was reflected onto a stone in the holder. And a third with a shattered golf ball from the adventures of Thanksgiving (keep posted for the November month post for that story!) placed inside the candle holder. I don’t think it came across well, but there is a faded outline of a blue heart within the green mass of the golf ball. I’m obsessed and in love with it. The only broken golf ball we (the boyfriend and me) found that entire day and I kept it because of the little faded blue heart. Alright, I’ll stop babbling and post the pics! 

Before parting, however, I’ll also suggest you pop over to Blest Photography’s page to check out their Valentine’s Day post. It’s quite a memorable one!

I’m thankful for: my guy for endlessly supporting me, usually the USPS (you sort of messed over Heart Day for me guys), photography mentors, practical interviews, my cat and dog, family.
