City of bridges. To everywhere, to nowhere. To fate, to choice. To continued paths and dead ends. To answers, to questions. To safety, to danger. To light days and dark nights.

IT’S CHRISTMAS WEEK! To celebrate, here’s some warm, cozy Christmas photos I captured. If you’re not pumped about Christmas coming up so soon, hopefully these do the trick!

My parents still live on property… Continue reading Where I Grew Up
Today I woke up to a winter wonderland sparkly daydream. The snow day was too perfect not to take pictures.
