I could get used to this.

So if a single rainbow leads to a pot of gold, then it only makes sense that a double leads to doggies!!!

And just like that, the early morning light reminded me it was spring.

Sundays are for open houses, especially when they are in St. Helena and include a gorgeous Victorian from the 1880s with a carriage house and lemon trees.

Slowly easing myself back into social media after a month away. I'll be the first to admit, the initial days were challenging, the motor memory was strong but I quickly found myself engaged in more meaningful connections and only missing ways to share instantly with loved ones.
During the past 28 days, I said a tearful and heartfelt goodbye to our beloved family dog of more than 17 years, spent a gorgeous (and delicious) weekend in Napa, finally booked a much-deserved vacation, shot court side at a NCAA game as the only woman photographer, found some incredible furniture finds for my new home, creative directed a hospital photo shoot, and snuck in some 1:1 time with friends and family.
I have yet to re-download all social apps but once I do, notifications will remain off and icons will not live on my home screen.
Here's to small changes with pleasant rewards.

After a lot of consideration and conversation with friends, I've decided to take a month-long vacation from all forms of social media. This means all apps will be removed. All notifications will be silenced. I'll be forced to let go of the distractions, critical comparisons, and political/current state of affairs anxiety that ultimately fills so many minutes of my day. Nevertheless, I'll continue to devour real news but through my own searches rather than click bait algorithms. I'm hoping to be more mindful, more present, and cultivate a more holistic approach to my creative practice. My momma said this may be harder than kicking caffeine, we'll see if she's right.
See you all in March.
