I used to think my first love was Charlie Meier in the first grade, but that was just puppy love (obv); it turns out my first true love was writing. My mom told me that the day before I started second grade, I said, "I just want to learn to weed and white." As in, read and write- or so she chose to believe (and I choose to support).
All this say, I love love love to write. The reason I started this blog (back in 2007) was to have a central place to collect my thoughts, inspirations, and photos, and to motivate myself to write something coherent every day of my life (or, most every day).
Turns out, I love a lot of things: food, crafting, succulents, feathers, gems, shadows, geometric art, socks, perforated edges, avocados.........and, well, plenty of things. My blog has been like a gateway drug for me: unlocking things I always knew I appreciated but never knew how much. I guess what I mean to say is that blogging every day helps me not only appreciate the beauty all around me, but to actually see it in the first place. It's helped me find my vision, and, consequently, helped me shape a goal of my contribution.
In case you came to this "About Me" page to learn more concrete things about me (and why wouldn't you?), I'll cover some of those bases now. I grew up in Shoreline, WA, a suburb of Seattle. When I was 16, I moved with my dad and sister to Orange County, CA. Can you say culture shock? I didn't even own sunglasses.
I moved to the LA area in August 2011 and am slowly setting my roots down here.
Ten years later, southern California is the place I call home. For now. There's a part of me that craves adventure, gets wanderlust multiple times a day, and refuses to picture where I see myself in five years. But that's ok with me. I own a few pairs of sunglasses now, so that's a start.
Thanks for visiting my little blog, for being curious about my life and how I see my world. Do say hi! I love interacting with readers and other bloggers!
Oh, and for those of you who are curious: I shoot with a Canon 5D and typically use a 28mm lens.
all the best to you,
