Roadtrip 2014: Day 2

Through Idaho I felt like I lived multiple lives. Driving through hot air and craggy red rocks was oddly alien, stifling and bright but captivating. Muted colors streamed together like a painting out the backseat window, feeling like I’d traveled back in time where everything was filterless and wonder-filled. Then […]

Lindsay Anne

Saturday I drove up to Portland to meet up with the lovely Lindsay Anne for some coffee and photos! She’s such a kind and friendly person, we immediately started chatting and almost forgot our drinks! Then we found nature right outside the city and took to the muddy paths and […]

Roadtrip 2014: Day 1

This last summer after my whirlwind of rodeos and the end of classes my parents and I took off down the pavement, toting our little trailer with our faces to the east. Leaving Corvallis and snaking across the state towards the Idaho border I was so entranced with the landscapes darting past […]

Gibson Ranch

Crisp clear winter air has always been one of my favorites. The sky seems brighter, the wind on my cheeks is more refreshing and my mind reels with thoughts and dreams. During my whirlwind-quick trip home to California for Christmas I was able to squeeze in some breezy time at […]

Merry Christmas Eve!

This year while I stumbled across some subtly embossed craft paper I knew I had to spend more time on my present wrapping so I could take pictures of the finished product! A few hours and two Christmas movies later, here they are. My favorite is the deer and trees. […]

The Beast

Two-toned blue with a rusty bed and more pops n’ squeaks than you’d think. Smells like spring mornings and summer evenings in the garage watching Dad tinker with things. Feels like being barefoot on the cool cement walking on wood shavings and metal spirals. Like growing up and finding myself. I’ll […]

Newborn Coffee Addict

I used to be pretty opposed to coffee. Coffee addictions seemed at least slightly unsavory. And it didn’t really even taste that good. But then I started working. And caffeine became more of a necessity than a bonus. And I found lactose free creamer (because black coffee tastes funny).   […]

Autumn Equinox

I think this summer will be what surfaces when I think back on what a summer is. Spending so much time with friends that they felt like extensions of myself and I felt like a part of me was missing when I wasn’t around them. Stargazing, barbecues and late nights […]

Clackamas County Fair and Rodeo

  Clackamas County was different than all the others somehow. It might have been the sadness creeping up as I drank in every sight and sound of the last rodeo of the summer. Perhaps it was finding the thirsty calf who suckled on my thumb while I sat outside the […]

Yamhill County Fair and Rodeo

These arenas have a kind of vibrancy to them. It’s not so much in the colors, dirt (and manure) is dirt (and manure) and there isn’t much vibrancy in that. It’s the mood that overtakes when you get near. I can’t quite put my finger on what it is but […]
