Hello All,

I can not believe that is has been almost two years since my last post. Let me take this post to do a quick summary of what has been happening over the past two years. Buckle up and hold on...

Shortly after writing my previous post in March 2014, my boyfriend(at the time)and I broke- up. The long distance relationship was working but it was looking like the relationship would not last in the long run. It hurt for the both of us but in the end it was the right thing for us to do. I was planning on returning to Oregon at the start of the 2015 year because of the relationship, but I could now look atthe possibility of staying in New York.
New York held my heart while Oregon
understood my past. 

As the months went by I focused on myself, well more like took a break from the dating scene. After the workday was done I was able to focus on myself and the things that made me happy. I would go to my choice of movie, get dinner where I wanted to, caught up on my favorite TV series, contin…

Time for a change

Now don't get to excited, it isn't a dramatic change but it has been some time since my last post and so we need some uplifting change in the blog.
It has been a little over 8 months since my last post and my has a lot happened in the last 8 months. Changes both of good and bad have come onto my path in the past 8 months. 
After ending a 2 and 1/2 year relationship which kept me in New York, I took the opportunity to return home for a change of pace. So I packed up my car and hit the road for the journey home. I was able to make the trip in about 3 and 1/2 days, many travelers didn't believe I could make the trip in such a short time but I was determined. Many assumed I wasn't able to see any sites along the way but I SURE DID!






The trip was fun, filled with adventure and emotions but I made it back to the west coast to start a new chapter. Upon arriving to the west coast, my plans changed drastically as I decided to relocate to Eugene instead of stay in Seattle, which…

Celebrating Independence Day...independently...

Today Hedrick and I went out separate ways after 2 and 1/2 years together. It has been a very emotional day and I am sure the tears will continue to flow for a few more days. It will take an adjustment to living my life alone and thinking of only myself.... I will never forget my relationship with Hedrick as he was the first man I truly loved. He cared for me when no one else did. He travled with me even when sometimes he didn't want to He supported me in all of my activities He pushed me to try new things He loved me.....as I loved him too.

24 Years have come and gone

I celebrated my 24th Birthday on June 1st. It was a simple celebration spent with Hedrick going to dinner, movie and Central park. It has been years since I have had a "big" birthday party. In the past 24 years of life I have lived through quite a few different experiences...

Spent time with my LARGE family

Enjoyed PBJ sandwiches and Disney movies at my grandparents

Making friends and unfortunately loosing friends as well

Enduring through 12 years of school
Working....A LOT
Moving away from home
Going to College
Leaving College
Experiencing living and surviving on my own

Moving ALL the way to the New York and deciding to stay
Going back to College again
Working....some MORE

Meeting Hedrick


Working on my Photography...slowly
Anyway, life has been quite an experience in the past 24 years. I look forward to the great experiences which are yet to come. I hope you will all enjoy the journey with me.

Never

Never ever take for granted the time spent with those whom you love. Take the opportunity to turn off the TV Step away from the computer Put the phone on silent Avoid the hectic mall scene And instead....
Sit with them Listen to them Understand their wants and worries Share with them your experience Laugh and cry together Create memories that will last forever For you never know when they will no longer be there.


It has been almost two years since I lost my best friend, Brittney. I miss talking with her everyday, Skype dance parties, shopping together, spending time together laughing so hard we cried and so much more. I never imagined saying good- bye to her at such a young age but I will never forget her. B, I love you!

What I would give for a few more moments with those that I have lost.
Cherish them!!

I did it again...

I was able to have another photo shoot, this time it was precious infant babe. The session was casual and held with a few props. I believe there is more to learn about holding a photo session with infants but I am glad I had this first experience. Enjoy!
