Puzzle Pieces

Last night I fell back in love with my photography. It goes in waves, in tides, in seasons with my urge to snap a little piece of life. I also came to the realization, that now with this fictitious business license, now is the time to get off the the ground. We all have goals in this here world, and mine is to illustrate stories by linking photographs in a puzzle like manor and having that of an illustrious beginning to end. Capturing the moment on camera simply lasts forever and caters to us humans need for nostalgia, to remind us just how beautiful life really is. Time for me to develop my thesis and put up a website, and one day soon I'm going to be doing what I truly want to do. Wedding/engagement/portrait/commercial photography in a manor that flows as elegantly as the rivers to the sea.

The photo above is one from many many years ago (2006 to be precise), my father gave me one of his old Cannon digital cameras and it was then that I fell in love with photography.

Happy Friday!

We've Got Holes in Our Hearts

Oh how I want to get lost in trees this weekend, however that's simply impossible so this band will have to do! North Carolina's Lost In Trees proves that being acoutstic and orchestral absolutely works. Especially when they swirl in vocals, call upon the subtle strings, and take me by the hand to swoonsville. This song below reminds me a bit of Damien Rice, but a milllllion times better. I just really like the way they build layers and put in haunting oweeees. Who wants to get lost in trees with me?

It takes a thousand tries you'll get it right in time.

If it weren't for this little thing called music, I really don't know where I'd be. After the shittiest of days or those that are simply gorgeous, without it... I'd die. Having a soundtrack-less life would be terrible, then again so would living on the streets, that's terrible. I do love silence, don't get me wrong, however music just fills that void for me. The one you get when you're slaving away at work and a track comes on, and that light in your heart goes off and you say... "I love this song!" Or those moments in your day when you have one track on repeat, playing over and over again putting you in a trance, which results in a meditative bliss.

Music makes my world go round...

I Wanna Hold Her Hand & Show Her Some Beauty

I'm going to come out and say that I have full faith that the soon to be released Arcade Fire album will be to par or better than "Funeral", as their song "Suburbs" is simply beautiful and so well written & composed. This song gets me a bit weepy with its fallout feel and dreamscape of bombs falling from the sky. God I wish they were playing the Bowl this summer, a few years back they did and that was one of the best shows I've ever seen. Hope you like this song as much as I do.

Breakfast of Champions

I believe breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day, thus being innovative and exciting is most important. I like to keep it healthy and balanced by incorporating protein, dairy, nanas, fiber, and a coffee beverage. I highly recommend duplicating this yourself at home, as the whole breakfast is under 300 calories and simply delicious!

What you'll need:

Yogurt Haven
-1 cup Fage greek yogurt (20g protein!)
-Half banana
-slivered almonds
-dash of dried fruit
-sprinkled with honey

English Muff Nuff
-Thomas Better Start Light english Muffins (8g of fiber!)
-Trader Joe's Boysenberry jam
-crumble goat cheese

Hope you guys enjoy this, I'm a savory scrumdiddlyumptious kinda girl... and yeah it's pretty much amazing.

You're My Favorite Flavor

Air's "Playground Love" has a nostalgic affect on many of us and I've just stumbled upon perhaps one of the best covers of it. Oh Phoenix, you french boys have been in my life for some time now, since the days of "Long Distance Calls". Listen and love this track and it's raw goodness...
