Hello.. This past week has been eventful to say the absolute least. To start off last week I ran into some car trouble.. lets just say I will be without my gold Prius for another one to two weeks. I worked Monday and Tuesday, then started college on Wednesday. College is so different. Don’t get me wrong, I love the independence I have here, but I am going to a community college less than 20 minutes away from where I went to high school. In tern, A LOT of people I went to high school with go here. Which can be good for the fact that I have a hard time breaking out of my shell (I am sitting in the library alone writing this.. its amazing). However, the negative side to it is that I feel stuck. I want to go out and explore, but having to work and having class kind of limits my amount of free time. This is part of the reason I did not have a post up last week. But hey, thats not an excuse. I will make time to have a shoot. I actually did make time for a shoot. I just didn’t make time to write up a blog post. So.. here is my choppy blog post followed by a picture of a green house I saw on the side of a road.


Delightful Daze

This post is long over due. A few weeks back, I went out to the gardens with the one, the only, ANTHONY PARADISOOOOO. Yah, it was fun. He braved the Texas heat and put up with my irrational fear of snakes. (There was a guy walking around with a python. I ran away.)

Also, I feel the need to put a bit of a disclaimer. This was not sponsored by any company. Anthony just really wanted a ‘cool’ picture of the back of his Patagonia shirt. It ended up being really cool. (S/o to him for the idea)


Midway Through Monday.


Okay, now that that is over with… HELLO everyone! I am currently writing this at 10 pm eating ice cream and thinking about you lovely people. I am honestly hyper due to the un-godly amount of sugar and caffine in my system, AND I am still riding off the excitement from Midway! I have been working weekends at the stock show along with a second retail job for the past month. It has been so hecktic but I have somehow managed to keep it together.

I had never been to Midway, there I said it! I had never been in all 17 years of my life have never gone out with friends to Midway. If you are unfamiliar with what Midway is, it’s basically like a carnival but within  the stock show. It’s amazingly fun and thrilling. So, when Grace and I had a bit of extra time after work and I just so happened to bring my camera (I take it everywhere it really wasn’t a coinsidence) of course I took some pictures.

A while back I went out with Grace (pictured above). Honestly every time I to this part of town with her we always have a blast. So, this time I brought my camera to capture so of the more pituresque moments (not so much scarfing down pizza at the mellow mushroom). Hope you guys enjoyed!

Lazy Sundaze

Let’s be honest, lazy days rock. But so do sick days.. I had a combination of the two Sunday (hint the title Lazy Sundaze). It was awesome, all I did was sit around trying to convince my parents to bring me ice cream while working on my blog in some cool socks (pictured below) while thinking about life.

Life is one of those things you just can’t plan out. You can try to stay on the yellow brick road but you will run into a few bumps along the way. Every person that I have talked to who tried to plan their life out, has told me, straight up, that nothing went as planned. And honestly, I feel as though that is the right way to go about life, spontaneous and unplanned. Don’t get me wrong, I know you will have to plan somethings out, but little random bits of happiness and laughter here and there is what makes you, you. *end of me trying to be a motivational speaker…* Here are some pictures of me being lazy with a laptop and a wild flower phone case. (not a promo I just love their cases)


Painted Fire.


This is Avery. I shot with her last year at a weird point in my life and in the year.. and honestly getting to shoot with her again was so much fun! She is such a beautiful person inside and out. I don’t think I’ve met one person with something negative to say about her. So here is to the girl with firey hair and an amazing personality. She is on fire. *Queue Alicia Keys singing This Girl is on Fire*.
