Wow, lets just start off with I suck. Blogging constantly is hard. But good news is i've been focuses a lot of my time and energy into planning my travel expedition after graduation and saving up for a nice camera. Which equals more photos! Abbie just got back from Thailand and New Zealand and has convinced me to fly to New Zealand rather than Australia off the bat. We had a lovely time catching up and eating at one of my very favorite restaurants, Green Lake Bar and Grill. This place has the best. cheapest. happy hour food. and is so conveniently close by. Here are a few fun portraits that we took today.

Montana Road trip: Olloclip adventures

This weekend was purely brilliant and I am still in a daze from it. I packed completely wrong and slept most of the car ride, while the boys jammed to heavy metal and rock music. (I'm a very heavy sleeper.) Nevertheless here are some great photos on the drive up there. We stopped quite a few times to take some photos. (Okay, maybe more than a few) I also got to try out my new Olloclip, which is so neat! It's a lens you attach to your iphone to take fisheye, macro, and wide angle shots. Really highlights the beautiful camera power that Apple has designed. Here is a photo of me using it:

Our next stop was near spokane area, right off the highway the sun was going down and we found brilliant shadows created by the trees. These are some of my favorite shots, ever.

This is my glamorous friend, Nick.

I'll post our adventures that we had when we got to Montana later on. In the meantime I am still trying to locate all my essentials that got lost in Pete (the rabbit) on the car ride back home. This was after as we were leaving. Pretty huh?

Reminiscing on Spring

WOW. White pants, picnics and sunshine.

What can be better? Miles and I used to go pick up lunch to go from our favorite restaurants in town and then bring our chilren (cats) out on a blanket and get some sunshine right in his front yard. It was incredibly easy, and requires hardly any effort!

Being Blonde in the Lake Stevens Summers

Maybe blondes do really have more fun? As I am looking back on my iPhoto library, I am really missing summer. People seem happier, weather is nicer, etc. But I know this summer will be amazing. It's going to top them all. Graduation. 21. and then hopefully a whole shift change of adventures in Australia by 2015. In the meantime, here is me reminiscing on my blonde days. Including but not limited:

  • Dancing in my front yard, trying to do cartwheels, tanning and drawing with chalk

  • Heading to Debuke River to have a campfire and fall asleep under the stars

  • Tradition: Ixtapa dates with friends visiting

  • Eating pizza. Enough said.

  • Index Mountain (Secret) Hike

  • Three Lakes in Snohomish, Wa
