the first 10 on 10

Well, we are into 2017 like is it no one business y'all and my brain is churning trying figure out a few of my intentions for the year. One intention I know I want to work on is to focus a little more on my creative side. I feel it like it is so necessary to really make a conscious effort to engage in activities that are completely different from my job (and honestly don't involve talking to people very much since I do it for 8 hours a day 5 days a week). Self care 101 my dear friends. And working on my photography more this year is one way I plan on practicing more self care and working on this specific intention.

And I've decided to join in on a blog circle with a bunch of really talented lady photographers from all over who come together to post 10 photos on the 10th of each month. I am hoping it will help inspire me to keep shooting and to keep looking for all the pretty things around me in my every day life. So, for my first 10 on 10, here are some on my first photos of the year. 

Check out the amazing Trine Lise Nilsen for another view on 10 on 10. 

How's your month so far?



Homemade Holiday Gifts: 2016

I'm back home from a quick visit to the South and I am ready to start on my holiday gift making for the season. I'll a little late to the game this year, but I plan to be a busy bee catching up my all of the holiday hustle and bustle this weekend. On the plane ride last night, I was compiling a mental list of what I wanted to make and this morning I went through all my old posts and thought I'd share it with you if you are in need of a spark. 

Here's what looks good to me this year...

November Life

November was weird. I started it out by finishing my fifth marathon - which was great, but it wasn't great at the same time. The election happened (nuff said), work was hard,  and things were just off big time. I was in a funk. Then I went to the Firefly Institute and got all inspired and energized. It was so needed. More needed than I knew until I got there. I took the time to reflect on my everyday life , focus a bit more my creative outlet and it was GOOD. November ended up with so many thanks and a sweet celebration of me. Lovely, I'd say. So here is a bit of life and what I say. First...that cloud porn!!
