Tell me about the dream where we pull the bodies out of the lake
and dress them in warm clothes again.
How it was late, and no one could sleep, the horses running
until they forget that they are horses.
It's not like a tree where the roots have to end somewhere,
it's more like a song on a policeman's radio,
how we rolled up the carpet so we could dance, and the days
were bright red, and every time we kissed there was another apple
to slice into pieces.
Look at the light through the windowpane. That means it's noon, that means
we're inconsolable.
Tell me how all this, and love too, will ruin us.
These, our bodies, possessed by light.
Tell me we'll never get used to it.

I have been feeling so overwhelmed lately. With just life in general. In a weird funk I suppose.

On a much more positive note, I was recently contacted by a husband/wife wedding photographer team to second shoot/assist them. This is a HUGE opportunity for me and I am so flattered and so excited. We've really hit it off thus far and they are such a gorgeous, fun, laid back couple, I have no doubts we wont hit it off. I've been booking shoots as well, and its all just really exciting. This is something I've always wanted so to see it in its begining stages is so empowering and gives me so much hope! I feel really blessed and hope this truly is only the begining of a whole new chapter! I'm hoping that I can start booking regularly enough to start investing in some new equipement. I currently shoot Nikon, and while I'll always hold a special place for it in my heart, I am going to give Canon a spin. My heart belongs to the 5d mark ii, but I plan on making that my reward once I really get to where I want to be. A present for my success. In the meantime, I need to really seriously start looking into other cameras. I've heard Canon has cheaper lenses, which is always a good thing!

I dont know if I ever mentioned here but in August, I'm planning on going to NC to visit my very good friend, more of a BFF actually, Valerie and her husband! They just moved there a few months ago and I am so excited to see them and hang out!! Valerie also wants to do a TTD(Trash The Dress) session while I'm there and I've been seriously dying to do one, so I am even more stoked! Speaking of traveling, I'd also really love to go to Seattle sometime this year. Maybe September or October, before the dreaded holidays hit.

So many of my friends are getting engaged/planning weddings/getting married this year. It is CRAZY!!! Its also pretty exciting, I am so very happy for all of them and wish them so much happiness <3 Despite the fact that I really don't forsee wedding bells in my future, ever, I LOVE weddings. I love all the little details. I love bringing different cultures together, I love the essence and the beauty and especially when couples are creative and original vs the more boring traditional approach. Thanks to this engagement epidimic, I get to spend hours scouring wedding sites online, while emailing back and forth with friends about different trends/ideas. So, just for fun, here are some random things Ive fallen in love with while looking through endless pages of wedding sites.

I adore this cake!!!

I really love mason jars, so when I saw this I fell in love!

ADORABLE wedding favors!! Totally my style.

My favorite color is teal/turqouise, so I've always imagined that being my wedding colors, paired with a shades of silver & white or greens. So I really loved this collage and the peacock spin!

Dessert/Sweet tables? Count me in!

I love DIY projects! The card box idea is really cute!

For the reception tables!

This is another really awesome idea for a dessert table!

These dresses are <3

Girl if you are coming to Seattle we HAVE to meet up. Btw, you totally will get married again. I just know it and I think the peacock theme is perfect for you.
