2016, a day in the life

kindness

Be nice to yourself.   It’s such a simple concept, and yet it is like the HARDEST thing to do. I see more & more articles out there about how horrible body-shaming is and how, as a society, we need to embrace the fact that bodies come in different shapes & sizes. And I love that […]

oklahoma daydream: great salt plains

I love Oklahoma.  I love that I can hop in the car, drive 2 ½ hrs & be in a strange and wonderful place… The Great Salt Plains. If you’ve never been there before, you need to go.  Back back back in the day I went with my high school Geology class & remember it […]

grateful

I’ve been running a lot lately. Ok, ok, you caught me…I’ve been running with a pretty healthy dose of walking mixed in lately (but for the sake of my pride, can we just pretend that I’m running? Awesome, you’re the best).

oklahoma daydream: wichita mountains

With the change of the season and all the awesome things that come with it (like flowers, and warm, sunny days), I have found myself with a serious case of the “Huzzah! Spring is Here!”-itis. All I want to do is be outside…either walking or pretending that I can run (it’s really just slightly faster […]

santa fe daydream

Santa Fe will always remind me of my grandmother.   It is road trips that seemed (as a child) to last forever.  Of being squished in the backseat of her Cadillac Eldorado, listening to the Eagles or Brooks & Dunn.  Of writing silly “We’ve gone to see the world” notes with my cousin & hiding […]

porch mice

First of all…if you haven’t heard the Porch Mice, you really should remedy that right this second.  Because they are awesome.  I can’t describe their sound any better than awesome, so I will borrow their words: “hollering and muttering about love love and sad sad. catchy as the plague though. something papa can whistle in […]

being invisible

Sometimes it’s a good thing.  Just to soak into your surroundings, blend in and become a part of them.  It’s a conscious choice. Other times, it’s a bad thing.  When you feel that you are fading away and not a single person acknowledges it. And then there are the comic books, with invisibility being a […]

minnesota daydream

My friend’s cabin in Minnesota is just a little slice of heaven.  Every summer we pack up the car, put on an epic playlist & escape the insane Oklahoma heat.  11 hours later (and a quick trip to Trader Joe’s), we’re sitting bayside at the most awesome lake cabin on the face of the earth. […]

springtime

Ah, Springtime.  It is my most favoritest season of all.  The weather is getting warmer but it is yet to be the oven that Oklahoma loves to be in the summer.  There are great thunderstorms (just beware of the tornados!) that are awesome to sit on the porch and watch.  Best of all though….the flowers finally […]

bermuda

I have been beyond blessed to visit many beautiful places.  I love getting the opportunity to sit back and soak up all of the sights & culture of different locations…be they near or far.  But really, the best part is spending time with the people I love.   Oh, and the views aren’t too shabby either…

Oh kids!  This is super exciting!   It’s my first official post of my first official, snazzy pants photography blog.  I have a TON of galleries to go through in order to celebrate my beautiful peeps who let me snap pics of them, so please be patient with me as I slowly but surely update them. […]
