on film

While these were not taken by me but the boyfriend, I couldn't help but share them and since I'm in some it counts right? He has so many film cameras I can't tell you exactly which one took all of these, but it's all film taken somewhere all around Virginia.  This makes me think I should probably get my rolls developed too...

Love Always,

those little moments no. 6

Better late than never right? April was a great month. 

May 24, 2012


There's a new trend taking over all of my summers: adulthood.  I get little windows/flashes/peeks into what it's like to be an adult, in the real world, with a real 9-5 job 5 (maybe more) days a week.  And let me tell you, I sure don't like it.  Last summer it was only 6 weeks, now it's 3 months, and soon it'll be everyday for the rest of my life. It's a HUGE transition that I'm definitely not ready for.  

Anyways, enough with the future, for the summer, I'm interning with a wedding planner which is the job my sister/friends and I have always dreamed about having, and I finally get to live it! I finally get to see what actually goes into planning weddings! No it's not paid. Yes it's 5 days a week from 9:30 to 6:30, but the difference between last summer (in an office) and this summer is that I actually enjoy it.  There are days when I wish I didn't have to leave.  Those days I sometimes wonder if I'm actually heading down the right path with my major. Maybe it shouldn't be Government + Urban Planning? Maybe I should actually be an event planner.  I mean I've been told since I was 7 "do what you love, love what you do" right?  There are definitely some huge questions I have to somehow find the answers to. Eventually.

So for now, despite all the doubts, I'll try to live in the moment and enjoy what's happening now instead of worrying about what life will bring in the future. It all works out in the end anyways. 

On a lighter note, I did some inspirational research for colorful weddings today for my internship and found some awesome blogs (linked below):

Like a Luncheon

I took these pictures probably over a year ago.  I sort of forgot about them.... you know those pictures that are just so uninspirational you can't do anything with them? Well I hate those, but even worse are those that are intimidating.  It's crazy to think I can be intimidated by pictures, but I really am, so intimidated that I don't touch them for over a year.  I guess it's because they had great potential but most were underexposed so that required some tweaking which then lead to more issues to conquer, and I was so worried about messing up these pictures that I just refused to do anything with them.  

So, during a time when I should either be sleeping or studying for finals (or maybe eating), I pulled these babies out and tried to not be intimidated by the editing process, and voilĂ  here they are after a year of sitting around untouched

Love Always,
