Kristy and Caleb.

kristy is one of my dearest friends here in austin. i was totally honored to be able to shoot her engagement pictures with her ever-amazing fiancee, caleb. huere are a few from the laundromat on 29th street. i realize that there are lots of kissy-pictures, but they were my favorite! :)

the a team and mr. rock

here are a few snappy shots of our team, from the work day mentioned in my previous post.

THE richard russell:

our fearless leader, austin:



and i don’t have a picture of jacob, who was there as well…so instead here’s a picture of a rock friend that my bud nick made me. his name is mr. rock:

once upon a time…

…there were four girls who went to a dance party together. their names were shmemily, amandina, lesiline, and may. (their names are protected…you know for their innocence.)

lesiline and may were dancing it up inside the theatre and shmemily and amandina were digging through a huge bowl of double bubble, bubble gum. shmemily selected the flavor ‘blue raz’ and began chewing the gum and blowing bubbles.

shmemily soon learned that double bubble was not, in fact, the best gum to blow bubbles, as when she popped the first bubble it left blue sticky ALL over her face.

after frantically trying to get all the gum off her face, one failed attempt after the other prevented her from completly removing it from her lips.

then, amandina had a GREAT idea of using blue painters tape to remove aforementioned unremoval stickiness from shmemily’s lips.

long story short, the process worked. silly as it may be, it was the only solution shmemily and amandina could turn to in this desperate time of trying to get their groove on.

the end.

this story was brought to you by the letters F and Z and by the number 18.

a little bling, please.

currently i am purchasing items for the flat, which i move into august 1. hooray!

i am looking for some bling-bling shower curtain hooks for my new vintage cowboy print shower curtain (don’t judge me! it’s awesome.).

target carries some excellent bling shower curtain hooks by shabby chic, however, they only come in pink. so i went shopping at the place you would THINK would have everything: bed, bath and beyond. UGH. nothing. NOTHING. yarg.


i think it’s funny when people use the word ‘enthralled’.

i guess that’s because it always makes me think of the psalm that reads ‘the king is enthralled with your beauty.’ to me, the sense of the word enthralled is something so majestic it can’t be described or defined by human words. it paints something so glorious i can only try to picture what this means.

en·thrall : to spellboud, to captivate

i suppose this also applies to words like ‘awesome’ and even ‘love’ (why, yes. i sure do love tacos!), which yes, i do find myself using these words at random.

“hey buddy. you’re so awesome for taking the garbage out.”

i guess i’ve never really been a big ‘i love you’ saying person to those i care about. yes i do use these words but not at the end of every conversation. i feel like that phrase gets thrown around and polluted by the farcest (is that even a correct usage?) of relationships. i feel like i’d rather show them love and give other words of encouragement.

(completely random sidenote: i just thought the person in the office next to me just answered the phone, “thank you for calling meatballs.” what? lies. she did not actually say that. my hearing is ridiculous!)

words are fun. i hope you were enthralled by my awesome post and i love you.

but really, think about that. God is spellbound by our beauty?? woah.
