If I read our story backwards, 
it's about how I un-broke your heart, 
and then we were happy until one day, 
you forgot about me completely.



Well, apparently I havent blogged since mid june and here I am sitting at the edge where July meets August finally taking a moment to write. I had every intention of blogging about all 30 days of my awesome, but obviously I didnt. I kept getting awesome though, I just didnt blog about it (or even instagram every time either.) Oh well.

I have done so much lately. I shot a wedding for two of my best friends last month. I went to the pool everyday for 2 weeks. I have been eating clean, with the exception of last week (gotta get back on that!) Its been a great summer so far. But it will be nothing compared to August. I am beyond thrilled with August.

It begins with some days off! Woohoo! Then I leave for New York on the 5th! I have never been before and I am so excited to see as much as I can. I get to visit two dear friends while I am there and I have some fun plans locked down so far. From NY I go down to Baltimore to shoot my first ever real travel wedding! So thrilled about this one! It is going to be beautiful!

Once Im back from NYC and Baltimore it will be my birthday! Not sure what we are doing yet, but Im sure it will be a blast. After my birthday is my little brothers graduation from his program and he gets to come HOME! I cannot wait for this one! You have no idea! Then there are a few more things in the works then its back to my fall schedule.

BUT.... Last night Grady and I bought our plane tickets to Central America!!! In october we will be going to Nicaragua and Costa Rica! I am so so excited. I havent been out of the country (aside from Canada) and I am brimming with anticipation!

There it is, a little layout of whats coming up. Two big trips for me, the person that has always felt like a "traveler" but has yet to actually travel. I feel overwhelmed with possibilities at this point. It has taken me so long to get here, but in the end, I think it will be worth it. Thats just the way my story goes I guess.

“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
