a huge update, thank you instagram.

shirt, shrug, and bracelet: forever21 / shorts: aeropostale / heels: ross (brand: joey o) / you can’t see it but i’m wearing a watch and bracelet set on my right arm that was a gift from nic.

(this was my outfit intended for a post 2 weeks ago. haven’t really been inspired to dress up lately though, so i apologize for the lack of, well… presence here.)

so like i said, i’ve been a little m.i.a.

so i’d like to share a little update to my life from the past couple weeks.

images from left to right.

row 1: makin’ guacamole / we talked about the possibility of maui / i love it when he wears cowboy boots. workin’ on his truck / ruffles and flowers.

row 2: starbucks and papa cristo’s philly cheese steak / my desk that i’ve tried to make a brighter place / best chipotle in the friggin world / the lovely but scary storm we had.

row 3: only way i eat bananas / i am not ashamed. i make dumb faces often. / pretend house hunting in lehi. we wanted this house and property. so cute and homey!

row 4: nic and i woke up at 5:30am and could not go back to sleep / so we drove out to saguaro and around town / another house in lehi / peacock!!

first 4 on the left: i make excited (excited is equivalent to dumb) faces for when i’m about to photograph a gorgeous couple like those two.

4 photos on the right: bought new flowers for our patio… most of them are already dead. :( / like i said, cute couple with cute invitations / was able to use the mark ii for their wedding. loved it.

and for the most recent instagrams…

clockwise, starting with top left:

went to sahaurita for my mother-in-law’s birthday party. fell in love with my sister-in-law’s sweet little yorkie, lucy. i want one!! / finally bought some watercolor supplies!!! so excited! / best burgers ever: quarter pounder beef patties with montreal steak seasoning, pepperjack cheese, miracle whip, green onions, lettuce, buns (add fresh&easy’s baked sour cream and onion chips for crunchy goodness), and voila. you’re welcome. / i cheat and draw illustrations already thought up by others (paola zakimi).

phew. that was a lot.

understand why i haven’t blogged as much as i’d said i would?

i’ve been spending my time living.

life is busy and full.

and that’s all i could ever ask for.

i’ve been thinking a lot about the things i’ve done, the things i do now, and the things i want to do,

and analyzing the things i’ve wanted that aren’t so important.

and emotions i’ve wasted on stupid things.

i don’t even know how to explain how i’ve been feeling the past couple weeks.

my heart is heavy.

that is all i have to say about that for now.

until next time,
