shellysunshine Greetings from Oregon! Consider this a progress report of sorts. I've successfully posted 3 of 6 items to my eBay page for sale, one of the most important steps in getting myself moved out to LA. Nest egg building commences!
To my newfound friends in Oregon, howdy. To my longtime friends in Chicago, I miss seeing your faces but I don't miss the weather. To the friends I'll meet in California, it's to be a grand adventure.
I haven't got a specific time frame for my move but I'll do my best to keep everyone in the loop about my current events. I'm thinking about starting a lifestyle blog including successes and bloopers from all of my escapades. Thoughts? Drop them in the comments. Also starting a YouTube channel! In the meantime, check out my photography tumblr page: shellygrayphotography.tumblr.com and keep checking back here for updates!

shellysunshine Belated Mothers Day: Even on Mothers Day, my mom was out running a race, and at the same time doing something wonderful to help the world. That's the kind of mom I've got. I won't say we always get along because I would be lying. I won't say I always appreciate her because that wouldn't be the truth. I may never be able to even comprehend all that she's done and all that she means to me. I can't say I have any concept of all of the love in her heart because it's insurmountable. I can say with confidence that although I may not understand all of the sacrifice, guidance, patience, diligence and love she's invested in me, I will spend the rest of my life trying to. If and when I have my own family, I can only hope that I've absorbed enough of her love to give that to my own children.
My mom is a fighter, a crusader for justice and hope, a lawyer, a teacher, a mentor, a daughter, a friend, a woman, wife and an amazing mother to two girls who love her more than she will ever know. Most of all she's a person. A person who's spent her life selflessly making other people's lives better. And that's what makes her a mom. Love.

Happy Mother's Day mom. I've never understood before how proud I am to remind anyone of you.

shellysunshine Congratulations!
Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!
-Dr. Seuss
I'm starting a really cool new chapter of my life. I am no longer living in Chicago!
I'm saying goodbye to -50 degree weather, 6 ft snow, blizzards, snowstorms, hot dogs, good friends and even some family to finally take the first step in pursuing a lifelong dream. I'm moving to Los Angeles.
I'm going to be living with my other half for a while in transit but LA is my final stop and I couldn't be more thrilled. I'm certainly not leaving IG! Stay tuned in to my feed for a nostalgic #goodbyechicago series and snaps from my upcoming adventures! 🌍
