La vie. {Life}

As per Ms. Battistelli...

"So break me of impatience
I've got a new appreciation
It's not the end of the world
Conquer my frustrations."

- Francesca Battistelli, "This Is The Stuff"

This song takes the words straight from my lips and the feelings of my heart.

{Photos from a day of rest... the musings of a full Saturday spent with lovely friends.}
Have a great week my friends!!!!

Dear Self,

This is merely a reminder... you love what you do. Never give up. Climb higher.

Vision is a gift to see what others only dream.

- Eskimo Legend

Good night! 

Sunday, February 12, 2012


I spent my Saturday morning and afternoon perusing the aisles of my hometown flea market. Side by side, I walked the unpaved pathways alongside hundreds of Winter Texans. Some Americans and some French Canadians. I heard country and folk music and almost boogied on down with my boots ; ). The best part, listening in on some french conversations... bwahahaha!

I saw new things and I saw vintage items. I found treasures, lovely ones! The best part, I found exactly what I was looking for... 

These blue mason jars will grace the white shelves of my dream kitchen, some day ;)


Some random updates:
1.  I want to be a Winter Texan when I have white hair and officially become an old granny.
2.  I should not be allowed to have cash at a flea market. Unsupervised!
3.  I have a brand-spanking-new haircut. A major one!

Have a lovely Sunday friends!!!

Par amour...

A little peek into this year's Mini Valentine's Boudoir Sessions, oohh la la...

C'est les petites choses qui importent la plupart des ... le fait de clignoter, un sourire, et une belle âme.

Forward ;)

Please forgive me... it has been a whole week since I last blogged. Yikes! I have become a little, umm... preoccupied with my personal life attempting to balance it with legal assistant work and with photography. I have yet to catch up on my sleep but I have finally caught up on all the Boudoir mini-session editing that I needed to accomplish. Whew... big sigh or relief :)

Unfortunately, I cannot yet share those with you... but soon I hope. I also cannot share with you a beautiful bridal session and have not yet finished some portraits. Thus, here I am tonight sharing with you a snippet into my personal thoughts, the random stuff. 

The past few days have taught me to let go and jump head first into new opportunities. I told myself that 2012 would be the year of yes for me... What?! You read correctly, ever since last year I have had an open mind for many things. I do not want to hold any regrets so I want to make sure I give everything and everyone an opportunity. If you ask me to jump off an airplane with you I may just do it. 

Gaahh! Okay, so it's not that drastic, but my point is that I am taking steps forward and not worrying about the ifs, ors, or buts. I am being me and looking forward to appreciating new things in life ;)

Last week flew by so quickly... whoah! The last I remember is it being January and this week is already February... my time-management skills have been slacking lately but I have been preoccupied. I had a great week and I hope that this week gets even better! I am desperately awaiting the arrival of the weekend so that I can get some sleep and watch some t.v.

So as I sit here on my kitchen table typing while the sound of rains plays loudly behind the door, I leave you with a metaphor... 

Step forward, don't look back.

Hugs and Kisses... Good night!

P.S. That is not my foot ;)
