Happy Birthday Jeremy!

Approximately this time last year:


J's birthday was a significant one last year. I broke up with him. At the zoo. Thank the universe I figured out the right thing to do. That was to be with the man who has treated me better and with more respect than any other man I've know.

To 35 more years of knowing you.

Cuter than you

Allow me to change your life for the better.

Solo Project

I took a solo stroll through Huntington Gardens yesterday. For me, a significant path to change is often just getting in the car and driving. I do more thinking while driving than most other places. Thinking about personal growth, change. I have realizations and find understanding in implementation of the action necessary for change.

Yesterday was one of those days. Good. Productive. Thoughtful. Arriving an hour before they opened with some time to kill, I began and finished the book I brought: It's not how good you are, it's how good you want to be. Precisely what I needed to read yesterday. The drive to the gardens proved insightful. The wander through them, even more. The Gardens were beautiful. Perfect weather.

Photoshoot for Survived with J later.




It was a full day of photography, self searching, and challenging myself to succeed.

Daunting Messy Mess

I did a first sweep of the garage yesterday. Trying to get organized, get rid of stuff, and feel less scattered in preparation for moving, Burning Man, both, or neither. Regardless, it feels good to know that all the boxes of DVDs or J's wires are labeled and in one place. Definitely pares down the search time. I can even tell you where the rug for our tent is now! (in the duffle bad with all the other useful fabricy pieces :)
