The last time I sat down and had a drink (a glass of rosé with Kim!) was when I visited NYC back in September, 6 months ago. I didn’t have an issue with alcohol abuse, but I felt like taking a break was right for me at the time. Somehow, I stubbornly made it this long without cracking, ha! I don’t think I’ll stop drinking forever, but taking a 6 month break after drinking pretty regularly since the age of maybe 18 or 19 (sorry mom!) was definitely eye opening. I’ve learned a few things in this time and figured I might as well recap and share with y’all. View Post
February was definitely a weird month. It seemed to feel like it dragged on, but somehow also managed to fly by. I felt like I was constantly doing something, but don’t really know that I have too much to show for it. I guess that means I didn’t really make moves on the “busy-ness” I mentioned in last month’s recap post (oops)! That said, let’s take a look at some of the things I did do in February! View Post
I decided to bring back an old recap feature I had on my old blog before I switched over to WordPress. Instead of just doing a photo round up, I wanted to expand and really get into some of the things that I noted or enjoyed from each passing month. Not only will it help me share my thoughts, it’ll also help me really reflect on the positives (even when I might not have thought there were any)! I think it’d be a good opportunity for me to set an intention for the upcoming month as well, so I can try to stay focused and accountable.
I think it’s pretty clear by now that I love me a good photo-dump. Sometimes words just aren’t enough, and photos definitely do a solid job of speaking for themselves (something something about 1,000 words..)! For that reason, I decided to put together a photo recap of 2016 in pictures, highlighting parts of this past year that I managed to capture.
Looking back through all of these, I realize that despite the speed bump that was September (getting stalked/harassed through NYC and then having my house broken into, boooo), I actually had a pretty solid year! It’s definitely important to look back and reflect, because sometimes we can lose ourselves in little things, and forget the overall big picture. Yea, there were some crappy moments, but dang if I didn’t do a lot this year!!
January. I don’t think this was NYE, but I’m sure it was (almost) just as good. I don’t really remember doing much in January, and I assume I was in winter hibernation mode.
February. I went to South Beach, Miami on a long weekend trip with a friend. (I think we’ll go in Spring next time, February was cooold.)
From one of my very first posts on this blog. Crazy how things have changed! View Post
Mini boudoir in Paris.
Sometimes you wake up in Paris and look out the window only to see this lovely view (with the teeniest Eiffel in the distance!) and decide that you’re feeling real fancy and want to shoot a little boudoir-style session… So you put on your cute silk robe, and do the dang thing. (The you I’m talking about is me, obviously.)
I had a lot of fun taking and editing these photos, and definitely think I’ll expand on it in the future. I’d love to do something like this with a model other than myself, but I suppose I’ll deal with that when the opportunity approaches (hint hint friends)!
