2013: Winter Months: #4 NYC!

Before the holiday season rolled in, I was able to go spend some time in NYC. I went with my good friend Steph and some of my camp friends on two separate occasions. These are the photos that resulted!

Project update

The 31 days of January project is going well. I am really enjoying it.  I have taken the creative liberty of not being amazing at taking photos every day.  The photos are mediocre at best, but some I have really enjoyed taking.  The process of taking photos every day is challenging, but it is absolutely wonderful.

The photos I have taken, I love them, I love the process, I love that I have to think about taking a photo every day from the moment I wake up to the moment when I go to bed.  I see my life through my lens and I’m absolutely loving it.

Thoughts about: Road Trips

I love road trips. I love the car feeling underneath my feet. I love the speed, the crossing of borders, and the visiting of friends.

Every year I take road trips, ever since I could drive I have traveled to visit friends at college, at their homes, wherever my friends were, I went to them.

There is no greater joy that taking the time to spend the time to visit friends. Whether I am going alone, or with someone, I love that time spent in the car, singing my heart out, or talking for hours with someone I love.  There is something magical about taking a road trip. There is something about the memories made on the road together that I hate to give up.

I get to go someplace new this coming week, I get to take a trip to someone who I have not visited yet, and that is the most exciting thing in the world!

2013 in Review: Favorite Photos

2013 has been a crazy year, I quit my first nursing job and found another. I’ve been at my current job for 8 months now.  I’ve traveled a bit, to Virginia again, NYC and to camp a few times. Lots of memories have been made, lots of films have been watched, so much tv as well, and even more books.

It’s been a great year, here’s to 2014!













The Best of…

I just made an album of all my favorite photos from the past 4 years (not including this year). My friend Heather gave me a discount coupon for shutterfly yesterday when I was driving back from the weekend away at camp. This coupon expires tomorrow. I got home last night at 830, worked on it for 2 hours, and now I just finished it, 2 hours since coming home from work! My dinner was eaten and my water bottle was drunk as I edited the pages and photos for this little book! I did the majority of it last night, and fine tuned it today. I’m actually kind of proud of it! I’ve never had something like this, to display my photos, besides the albums from years ago and the albums on facebook, but nothing as specific as this!
