My Birthday

So, things have been quiet lately. I’ve hit a dry spell not knowing what to write. How this happened, I’m not quite sure, but I know work has been a main contributor as by the time it’s over, I only want to sleep.  Seriously, I just crawl into bed not long after work, and the next thing I know, it’s time to go back to work.

For my birthday though, I took off of work, and my boyfriend treated me to the best day ever! He took me to one of my favorite places, Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. I could have spent all day there, and tried to! It was amazing to have a day with nothing to worry about, and spend it with someone who loves and cares for me. It was pure joy.

Photos were taken of course, about 200 of them. I told you I love my camera. I thought I would share some of them with you whilst I think of new things to write and entertain you with.

Oh I forgot to mention, they had a train display set up. It was one of my highlights, I wonder why.

My Promise to You

My Promise to You

We may pass through storms
But you say: “Don’t you worry my dear,
there’s nowhere else I want to be
than keeping you near.

Hand in hand, let’s take this step.
This first one, speaks the most
as we start over anew,
letting the past become a ghost.

Let me be your strength,
teaching you how to believe.
Giving you hope to hold onto,
showing you that I’ll never leave.

Let’s make the past fade away
and stop being afraid.
I will never let you fall,
always there to give you aid.

I’ll never want you to be different
I love you for who you are
You make me feel better
Just for being my star.”

Why So Serious?

Why So Serious?

For my boyfriend, with all that he’s shown me.

A Little Photography to Brighten the Day

So whilst I was M.I.A., I kept doing the photography. I had some amazing days for it too. I wanted to add a few of my favorites that I took.

Britt’s Poem

So, in the middle of everything that I was going through, one of my friends was having a bad day, and for all that she has been doing for me, and making me smile, I couldn’t let it go and had to make her smile as well. Brittany and I love sending silly pictures and text back and forth and just encouraging each other, so when she was having a bad day, I couldn’t help but try to cheer her up. PS. you should also check out her blog!

Through this journey
Passing amongst despair
Don’t give up, don’t give in
I’ll teach you how to not be scared

I won’t leave you, you’re not alone
This is where you belong
And in a while this shall pass,
You’ll see that you’ve become strong.

We both know what it’s like,
being who we don’t want to be
But I’ve made it this far,
and am guiding you to me.

I’ll put you back together,
broke piece by shattered piece
Making you smile and live
Until those memories cease.

Yes it is short, but half of it was written in a moment over text…

I made a Plan…

I was uploading a new batch of photos I took. I thought I’d share some of them. I’m headed out tomorrow to take a lot more. I’m making it goal to participate next year in the Art Festival here. I have exactly one year to put work together. So I’m trying to make it a goal to go out once a week with camera and see what I can find. Which means you’ll have more artwork to look at! Enjoy lovies.
