Not a lot of blogging lately, but for good reasons! 
For one, this wedding,
which ROCKED my socks off -
a beautiful, friendly couple,
the most hilarious bridal party,
and one of the best dances I've ever been to! 
 Then there was this shoot with my friend Alex,
just because she's crazy cute
and I'm trying to get used to shooting outdoors again
(helloooo amazing march weather)
 and last weekend was Northern Light Convention,
full of some much needed friend time,
print competition and
learning from professionals. 

Pretty much, life's been busy,
but good.
Really good =)

"Keep talking," I said
as I put together my camera
"I just like the light,"
So she did,
because for us,
good light is worth
interrupting a conversation

the Piece that is You

it's ok to just be proud of Yourself,
instead of waiting for others to confirm you're enough.

Trying to make Everyone happy,
is like running in circles...
exhausting and pointless.

Work hard,
try your Best,
but at the end of the day,
be secure in the beautiful, unique piece 
that is You.

Things They Can't Teach You

No matter how long you're alive, there are some things the world just can't teach you...

Like how to make, "I'm sorry" mean "I hurt for you"

or how to trust God's Timing when you think it's Too Soon.

But most of all,

Especially this,

I wish I could learn

how to holding Breaking Hearts

together in my Bare Hands.

Dad doesn't approve of my use of the word "necessary",
when it comes to this pretty pair,
but I wasn't going to stop wearing my old ones 
until I had replacements,
and they were getting to be 
"embarrassing," according to Mom.

So now my life has a little more turquoise in it...
which it needed,
I like coming to Sioux Falls
and remembering who I want to be. 
Regrets hurt a little less ,
and Dreams breathe a little easier.
Here, Lonely is simply a word,
instead of a feeling.

Dear Brothers,

I miss the days
when our hearts were too young to crumble
and our minds too new 
to be our enemies. 

love, sister
