Long Overdue ♥

I have been wanting to start this blog for a while now, since I have been wanting to challenge myself more on the creative side. I never realized how important a picture is, can be, and the impact it can have on one's life. I never realized how much love can go into a picture, how much emotion can be charged throughout me, all from looking at a picture. I never realized any of this until the subject I wanted to photograph couldn't be photographed anymore. November 2009, a day after Thanksgiving I lost my Grandmother. Thanksgiving Day, I did not get one single solitary photo of her. Which is so unlike me, because I'm usually snapping around like crazy. It's the biggest regret, the deepest sorrow, one that has plagued me for the better part of a year now. Thankfully, luckily, I have photos of her that I have snapped of her over the years. My family deemed me "The Keeper of Family Memories" sort to speak, since I always had a camera pointed in their faces. Thus began my love for VERNACULAR PHOTOGRAPHY.

- I am NOT a photographer! I didn't go to school, I don't play around with manual settings. I don't know anything about lighting, f.stops, shutter speeds, DSLR, etc...

I love the Vernacular aesthetic, especially photos from the 50s-70s. Amazing! Makes me jealous! I've got a digital camera, and tons of beautiful things around me to photograph!

It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Surviving A Long Term Goal

How To Reach A Long Term Goal:Write the goal downKeep doing what you need to do to achieve the goalConstantly look up things that motivate you towards your goalA little competition never hurts!Speak the goal into existenceExpect to fail, but plan to succeed I made it! Holy crap, Batman! I survived Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have no idea how I kept pushing myself. I skipped lunch today to save the extra coins. Yes, you read that right. A co-worker had a snarky remark about it, but guess what? IDGAF! I have goals in my mind, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize. Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.


I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where …
