Pinterest

I find myself on Pinterest a lot, especially when in search for recipes! Pinterest is my go-to for everything creative. I’ve got boards for tons of different things, from volleyball-specific stuff for coaching to nifty tips for road trips. And of course the typical hair, nails and style boards. 😉

Mostly I like Pinterest because of how easy it makes sharing these wonderful, unique ideas. Not only do I want to share my favorite pins with my followers, I also want to see the fabulous ideas and projects you share. Click here to follow me and I’ll follow you all back!

I can’t wait to see my new Pinterest feed! 😀

Shoutout!

Shoutout to my fan from Brazil, who views my website almost everyday!

Shoutouts to all of my viewers from all over the world – from Singapore to India; Canada to Italy; Australia to Ireland; and so many more – you guys are awesome! I think it’s incredible that my work is reaching people internationally and I’m hugely flattered by the diversity of it.

Someday, I will travel the world like my photos have!

Life = Chaos

I mean, what would life be like if we weren’t thrown a few surprises every so often?

This last week was one of insanity for me. I was away from my laptop for so long, it actually shut itself down while already in sleep mode, because I was neglecting it so bad. Yikes. I don’t think that’s happened before.

Hopefully this week I’ll be able to catch up on editing from last week, before I head up to Olympia for my cousin’s first birthday. I can’t believe he’s a year old already! I haven’t seen his cute little face since December.

Williamson Lip-Sync Competition

The first ever Williamson Lip-Sync Battle happened last night and it was epic. Here are a few of my favorites:

LipSyncOff-48

These two are actually choir members, so you can imagine how awesome their rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen was!

LipSyncOff-34

LipSyncOff-25

These ladies nailed Trouble by Taylor Swift and had some sweet dance moves too.

LipSyncOff-86

And a duet by Cristina and Dan!

Family is the best ❤

A day of editing for me!

I will be hard at work in front of my computer all day today! With a wedding photo shoot in the Columbia Gorge and a trip to  Newport Beach, I’ve got over 400 photos to edit.

It’s July and I said I’d do a series of tips and tricks this month, so I want to hear your ideas! Macro, landscape, portraits, HDR? I’d like to hear them all! 🙂

June Photo Challenge: Day 4

THE WILD

The subject brings to mind things that are chaotic and unpredictable – like kids in a candy store, airports during the holidays or that mall jungle scene in Mean Girls.

Well, today’s photos are ironic in that “the wild” isn’t acting very wild. In fact, they look snuggle-worthy.

Chicago15-54

Lions are my favorite animals, which is no surprise because I’m a perfect fit for all things of the Leo zodiac. I love how majestic they are, truly the kings and queens of the jungle. And yet here they are dozing in the warm afternoon sun and observing the chaos that is The Brookfield Zoo.

Chicago15-55

When they aren’t munching on antelope or roaring their brains out, these guys are so cute. Petting a lion is pretty high up on my bucket list!

Home Sweet Home

Home for now, at least! Chicago was amazing! Bobby and I had an absolute blast exploring Chicago and getting to see his side of the family. Despite Google Maps and Divvy, our trip went pretty smoothly.

I didn’t forget about the Photo Challenge! I’ll be editing photos from the trip all day long! Stay tuned for lots of pictures 🙂
