Snapshots of July

Hello Everyone,

July is here, and rather than summery pictures, I’ve been dowsing myself in Autumn (I know, wayyyyy too soon).

There is something way comfier about a photo that looks like it’s taken in Autumn. This is psychological, I know, but it still fuels me to take fall-ish photos.

Maybe I am just in denial about all the heat.

Also drinking hot drinks, because I’m that deep in denial. I hope everyone is having a nice July. I am staying as cool as possible and reading as many books as I can get my hands on. Summer is also such a beautiful time for painting, so I’ll have to try and make some more time for that. Me and another friend are looking for a nice park to paint at, maybe some watercolor.

I hope July is good to us, and I hope there are some more thunderstorms. Let me know what you’ve gotten up to in the past month and what your plans are for the rest of summer! Mine are now thankfully including an awesome trip to Maine!

Talk to you soon.

A Glimpse of My Day | A Surprise Party |

DSCF6016DSCF6019

Yesterday, we had family and friends gathered at our house for a party to celebrate the long weekend, to celebrate Memorial Day, and to my surprise, to celebrate my birthday. Technically, my birthday is tomorrow, but that didn’t stop my mom from bringing out a platter of sugary tiny cupcakes and an adorable Happy Birthday banner.

But more than anything, it was lovely to be around loved ones and enjoy our new gazebo in the backyard.

I think it’s important to enjoy those moments, even if they don’t seem very important. Looking back, the day went by so quickly, and I’m shocked that everyone came and went so easily. But sharing a new space in your house with people to enjoy is so exciting, it’s the first time I’m really experiencing it.

It was supposed to be a sunny day yesterday, but the clouds never seemed to break, though I didn’t mind. How did your weekends go?

Talk to you soon,

Today I Felt Anxious, So I Took Photos of Donuts

Photography can be an ailment. With lots of things going on like allergies, taxes, and bloating (oh my!) I needed an outlet. So I took some pictures of this delicious chocolate glazed donut.

Did this magical donut take away any of your anxiety? Well, I hope so. If anything, maybe you feel more hungry.
