May it be

May it be the best and last semester (*and season spent in Chapel Hill)!

This morning, during coffee in bed with Rachel, I felt comforted and supported by the life I have lived here these past (*almost) four years. I’ve moved into a new place, I have paired down my life to the essentials, and I feel a new wave of energy.

I am ready to put in to practice being fully present. I am also ready to gone and away from here, but for now, I want to enjoy this. And all its simplicity.

“Limitation is the condition of our lives. What matters — what allows us to reach beyond ourselves, as we are, and push at the boundaries of our ability — is that we continue. But then everything depends on how we practice, what we practice.” – Glenn Kurtz

No Stopping Me

“The devil works off of idle minds and idle minds are his workshop. So therefore, I try to keep mine idled-up. That’s the reason I have so many hobbies and so many little jobs. It is because I have to stay busy.” – Kelly Wilkins

Back in May, I was involved in a documentary workshop in Eastern, NC.

Over the course of just one week, I worked on this piece and am happy to share it with you now!

In addition to this story, make sure you check out all the other videos on the workshop’s website here.

paula2I have had the honor of getting to know Paula over the course of this past semester and I’m such a fan of this lady. Paula is so full of life and love! She pours herself into everything she does.

I love her creativity and am constantly inspired by her drive and willingness to go above and beyond any task at hand.

Best of luck with everything dear Paula and enjoy all the D.C. has to offer! Lots of love.

I honestly think I could take photos of Kyle Ann all day long and never get tired. She is one incredibly fun, intelligent, and photogenic woman!

I love these photos and how Kyle Ann’s elegance, grace, and beauty shine through each and every one.

I’m so excited for her and all the big things happening in her life right now, but most of all, happy graduation!

What life looks like these days

Life lately has been a hilarious mix of funny events, wild emotions, and dramatic weather. I’ve lived my weekends out of bags and my week in the a variety of places too. I’ve thought a good deal about the big, scary future and feel that I really have no idea what is in store. I know with confidence, it’ll be something I never dreamed of doing and in a place I haven’t ever considered.And I’m excited. I’m ready for a challenge and ready to take on just about anything right now.

Maybe its all inspired by the new warm weather and the snow and ice slowly melting away, or maybe its just the constant reminder Spring is near. . . and with it comes a whole new set of possibilities.
