Words for you...

"If I could bottle up the sea breeze
   I would take it over to your house and pour it loose through     your gardenSo the hinges on your windows would rust and colorLike    the boats pulled up on the sand for summerand your sweet clean clothes would go stiff on the lineand there'd be sand in your pocketsand nothing on your mind."-Josh Pyke

Song for you...

I love Fleetwood, I truly cannot live without them. Thanks Ben for letting me know that...

Art for you...

I am captivated by the work of Brice Bischoff.  If dreams or ghosts could be captured, here is how I would want them to be.  Imagine the scientists put vapors in the air and if the spirits walked through them this is what was created?  Or an unearthly dream, perhaps the hot air internalized.

Frozen herbs?


Cape Cod has my heart.

I have been going to Orleans, Cape Cod since I have been 5 years old.  In many ways it feels more my home than Boston, where I grew up. I was fortunate enough to have a mother as a teacher so summers were 100% here.  Now, as I have gotten older and have had less time with the salty air and open skies I realize how lucky I have been and am to have such a sanctuary of peace to call home.  Do you have a special place in your heart that now matter where you roam  in this world, due to memories and love will forever be your favorite space of peace?  Would love to hear your thoughts...

Art for you...

I am loving this esty shop and artist Unitedthread.  Such beautiful organic colors and detail to each image.  The one of the animals drinking in the water breaks my heart with joy.  So good!

Sounds for you...

Turning 30!

This summer I turned 30.  It was wonderful and amazing and I had not one second of fright.  I feel lighter and more focused then ever.  I took some moments the week of to reflect upon and take note of the work I have done as an individual for personal growth.  I made a huge list of thoughts and learning's.  A lot of what I wrote is only awareness of, perhaps I haven't made into just practice yet.  But that is my work.  Over the next few weeks I want to share with you some of these lessons.  I will offer 10 every Wednesday.  I humble share with you things I have learned/am learning:

Things I have learned

Everything changes, all is in movement.  This can be secular to you or to others, as we shift to the moon, we also shift in collaboration with other planets (people). Be sad and be happy about it.  Life is a process, forever.  Think it not as an end of things, but only the dispersion of energies and love.

When you are younger you rebel against that which seems standard, that which seems commonplace.  But sometimes happiness is right there in front of you if you can only accept where you truly find joy.

Make a list of things that are important to you in life.  Do this often.

Disappointment and understanding can happen in the same instance. Disappointment is part of all relationships and how we deal with this is learned with maturity.  Understanding is something learned.

Resentment and jealousy are empty emotions.  When they creep in remind yourself of this. 

Everyone has a past to keep, that which is only their own.  You are a unique human.

Nothing you consider important is without value.

We are all recovering from our childhood  (as in we are our childhood).

It is ok to find joy in children; it opens your heart and brings you to new places.

Yoga loves me back.

Words for you...

When I was younger I had these enormous vanities about what I expected from myself. I`m glad to have a comfortable and fascinating life, but now I see it for what it is, so I can be braver and more spontaneous and say to myself, "Oh, screw it, just go out there and do it."- Diane Keaton

If I were a rich girl...

What hair products do you use?  I recently went to Parlour and Jill my stylist gave me samples from Davines.  I have really dry course hair that almost never dries soft.  Until now!  I love LOVE this stuff!

I did get convinced in purchasing their alchemic silver conditioner.  She said I should use it once a week so keep my highlights from going yellow and orange.  An insurance on my investment she said (in getting my hair highlighted).  It's miracle stuff!  I even went to bed with wet hair and woke up with somewhat manageable hair.  Which some of you can empathize, never happens with very thick hair.

The only thing is it's very expensive for me!  What other products do you use?  I use Dove, Alba, Aveno, whatever!  I am forever in search of the perfect hair product for my time of hair.

Hello world!!!

It has been a long long time.  My apologies for having been MIA for so long.  My efforts had to be put elsewhere for just a bit of time.  My company Red Anchor Photo still needs a lot of tender love and care and has been taking up loads of time with wedding season.  I guess I still have some balancing to learn... Where have I been?  In photoshop and lightroom!

But I am back,  I have missed this daily exercise in sharing what I find worth sharing with you and missed your conversation in return.  Some highlights of what I have been doing:

  • Being a part of wonderful days of love and wonderful moments with children photographing weddings and baby's!
  • 1000 hours photo editing!!
  • One trip to Atlantic city
  • 4 trips to the beach
  • 2 trips back home to Cape Cod to see the family
  • My first attempt at clam chowder
  • Too many tacos and glasses of wine.
  • 1 trip to Idaho 
  • Countless trips to Beacon, NY
  • Game of Thrones, Mad Men, The Killing, The Wire, Girls...omg so much TV!
  • Eating salads and homemade Gazpacho daily
  • Reading 3 Bret Easton Ellis novels and the History of Love (I needed some female tenderness)
  • Working, babysitting, working, living, loving!

Here is some light I have collected...
