Happy Summer!

Bryce & Dane, San Diego, Canon Digital Rebel Some great sites: – Threadbared This site is really, really funny. They find vintage sewing patterns and make fun of them. I love good simple concepts like that. – These hand paintings make my little henna tattoo I got in San Diego look like magic marker. {via […]


above & beyond

above Oakland, Canon Digital Rebel As I flew away this weekend, I thought, ‘Holy shit. I did it. I submit my very first book proposal last week.’ This trip to San Diego was a celebration for myself. A way to mark this accomplishment and a way to acknowledge myself for the work I had done. […]


Photo Friday: Sport

Vitamin water, Olympus Epic Photo Friday’s theme this week is “Sport.” Okay, so vitamin water isn’t exactly a sports drink but what the hell. I’m off to San Diego for the weekend so I will see you when I return!

words of comfort

Photo Friday: Rare

a cautionary tale

Andrea, photobooth in Santa Barbara I share the photo above for a few of reasons: 1. It is silly and funny (I wish I owned that wig) and I fell in a big emotional pothole today and I am trying to fish my way out. This photo reminds me of the side of me that […]
