The company you keep

These people help make my life feel complete.

Honestly, these people are the reason. . . The reason I’m loving life, I’m inspired constantly, and I’m happy. These people don’t even know how much they mean to me.

Last night’s NAFD was magic – 100 shelton st. love // bonfire // cider // bread // candles// porch lights//talent show [*readings, improv, poetry, videos, math solving, ukelele performances, and dancing] // late night // light rain // laughter // tears // joy // bliss

+ All the love to Laura. Her family. And her community here at UNC.

Happy early graduation Sarah, you’re going far in life and I’m excited to see what path//paths you take!

“Childhood is not from birth to a certain age and at a certain age. The child is grown, and puts away childish things. Childhood is the kingdom where nobody dies.” – Edna St. Vincent Millay

Beauty everywhere







“We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” – e. e. cummings

Happy Monday.

Find someone to believe in you.

Find something beautiful to celebrate.

These photos are my inspiration//the things that are pulling me through the next few days.

What life looks like these days




What life looks like these days:

1.) Grace: A Memoir. A book I have wanted for far too long + filled with notes and pictures from Amirah. One of the greatest gifts I have ever received. It made me laugh and cry (in public. + at a restaurant. thx love).

2.) Official business cards for Grace Farson Photography!

3.) Packages//letters//notes from many of the wonderful, beautiful and inspiring people in my life from home and all around this big world.

What life feels like these days:

1.) Warm. Sunny skies and a full heart.

2.) Tense. I’m tired of using the word busy to define any part of my life. We’re all busy. Little kiddos are busy, old people are busy, college kids are busy, yes! We’ve all got a right to say we’re busy. That said, I have been a little tense lately. I am overbooked, overworked and tired. School is real and it is a big part of my life, yes, but so is planning for the summer, working (two jobs), taking care of myself, my house, my friends. . . etc.

3.) Inspired. I cannot even begin to comprehend just how inspired and motivated I am to do EVERYTHING right now. I have received so many incredible emails in the past few days with opportunities that are beyond belief. Life is happening all around me and I want to absorb it all. . .

Plus, this little email from Andrew in Morocco made me happy:

“Props to you for giving me the best travel advice I’ve gotten yet: candied ginger. Life saver and friendmaker” – Andrew. February 11, 2013
