These pictures were taken two years ago, but then got buried in my drafts when I had a bad case of writer’s block and no inspiration. It was around Thanksgiving 2016. My mom was in Europe with her sister. There wasn’t much to do, so we took a walk. I don’t have any pictures from […]
Driving along the Blue Ridge Parkway, we discovered a trail during a stop at an overlook. The trail weaved through and around giant boulders, and followed the path of the Blue Ridge Parkway, underneath the busy scenic road.

On the crest that connects the craggy domes, Clouds fly swiftly across, often obscuring […]
These pictures of from a fun Autumn Saturday, two years ago, spent exploring. They were taken on the same day as these photos that I used in an outfit post the other week. Me, Steven and his brother met up for some Chinese takeout and then went on an adventure to find a way to walk […]
