Hey loves ♥

Spring is almost here! So close, that I want to scream.. enough with the cold spells already! lol While autumn is my favorite season, I love spring as well. It’e when all the little babies are born. I am so excited that for the first time in probably about 5-8 years, I will hopefully have ducklings on the farm again. Maybe it is their waddle or their adorable clumsiness that makes me fall in love with them. I can say, speaking from experience, they are very loyal and cling to one person. Much like dogs do. Anyway… enough with my rambling. ♥ If you haven’t gotten these adorable guys from Jian yet… be sure to run to Belle Event and take yours home today! ♥

Keep Smiling Y’all.

Little Imperfections

Taking a break 1024.png

I think after this masterpiece… I deserve a little break 😛 That little project is almost ready! I will admit I’ve been excited and super anxious.. but as I’ve been told, Perfection takes time. I hate that p word.. but I understand the sentiment. To me, it is all the little imperfections that make it unique and makes me human. ♥ Stay tuned! ♥

Keep Smiling Y’all

A perfectly put together mess.

Sunflowers had always been my favorite flower. I feel like we can learn so much from them.  When I feel like things are looking down, I find myself looking for the light. Much like they do, like we all do really. No matter how grey or dark things seem, always keep pushing forward and looking for the light. It’s coming… Just may be hidden behind a few clouds. 😉 ♥

Keep Smiling Y’all

I get by with a little help from my friends

What would you think if I sang out of tune,
would you stand up and walk out on me?
lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song
and I’ll try not to sing out of key.

So many times, we as bloggers are faced with the difficulty of not only blogging the item but showing it in a new light. I knew when I saw this amazing new dress from Blueberry that I wanted to show it in the shorter version. Don’t get me wrong, The long dress is fabulous! The lace is perfection y’all ♥ Just saying. I was talking with a fellow blogger deciding on how I wanted to show it. She mentioned how versatile it is and that it fits perfect with a jacket. So there was my idea with a spin. I can’t take full credit for the idea, so thank you Rina ♥

None of us are perfect. We all struggle in our own ways from time to time. I’m grateful for the people that have helped me grow as a photographer and a blogger along my journey. So, to anyone out there that feels like you are struggling, know that you aren’t alone. Don’t be afraid to reach out and ask for an opinion, some advice or help. ♥

Keep Smiling Y’all.

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
with a little help from my friends.

Only meant for Me

This gypsy heart just needs to wander. Wander to undiscovered mountains and caves that guard the mysteries of this world. I will unturn every stone. I will walk every unpaved path, I will dive through the darkest seas Just to discover the secrets, that are only meant for me.

Messy hair, dirty feet, and wild sparkle in her eye

Waves of waterfall 1024.png

We are the girls with the messy hair, the dirty feet and wild sparkle in our eyes.

One of my favorite childhood memories was going down the creek and playing in the water. There was a spring that fed it and waterfalls that made it that much more interesting and entertaining for a young, carefree spirit. I remember going back home and being soaked, head to toe. Mud covered my feet from the walk back home and hair was all a mess. I would do it all over again if given the chance, even now as an adult. Don’t be afraid to get a little dirty and let life lead you where it may.

Keep Smiling Y’all.

All the right Distractions

New Year Ramble……

So, I’ve been a little bit of a procrastinator with blogging this new year. Trying to catch up with things and get back to the normal every day routines of both RL and SL. I will say… That I’ve had all the right distractions lately. Some may agree, some may not.. and some would just hit the fucking floor.. but you know what.. It’s my life.. and I am so ecstatic to see what this new year holds.

Keep Smiling Y’all.

Caught Up in the Rhythm

Say something 1024.png

{Flickr}
~Everyone knows all about my direction
And in my heart somewhere I wanna go there
Still I don’t go there
Everybody says “say something”
Say something, say something
Then say something, say something, then say something~

Opinions, feelings, honesty, communication…
Communication. We are all looking for some type of validation from someone. Whether we choose to admit it or not.. Sometimes those words are given to us, whether we ask for it or not. Sometimes we just get caught up in saying what we feel is best.

~I don’t wanna get caught up in the rhythm of it
But I can’t help myself, no, I can’t help myself, no, no
Caught up in the middle of it
No I can’t help myself, no I can’t help myself, no, no, no
Caught up in the rhythm of it~

But is it really a matter of just going through the motions or can we say what we truly mean. I know I’ve found myself wanting to say exactly what is on my mind. Fortunately, I don’t live my life in react mode. I’m able to evaluate the situation and look for those empty words left unspoken.

~Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have (maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~Everyone knows all about my transgressions
Still in my heart somewhere, there’s melody and harmony
For you and me, tonight (whoa)
I hear them call my name
Everybody says “say something”
Then say something, say something
Then say something, say something then say something~

Living your life out in the open is a risk. We throw our hearts on the line and openly give anyone the chance to rip us apart. Whether it is through blogging, creating, teaching, public work… whatever.. We leave pieces of ourselves with the ones we run across. They begin to learn who we are. They grow close to us, feeling like they know who we truly are. But do they really know us?

~I don’t want to get caught up in the rhythm of it
But I can’t get help myself, no I can’t help myself, no, no
Caught up in the middle of it
No I can’t help myself, no I can’t help myself, no, no, no
Caught up in the rhythm of it~

Sometimes, the best way to protect yourself.. is let them take those pieces but reserve who you truly are for those that can do the same in return. Watch and wait. I can honestly say that there is a handful of people that know me inside and out. Both in RL and SL… They know my thoughts, they can predict my every move. There is beauty and also tragedy in this.

~Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have (maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have (maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have (maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have (maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have)
Sometimes the greatest the way to say something is to say nothing at all
Sometimes the greatest the way to say something is to say nothing at all
Sometimes the greatest the way to say something is to say nothing~

I’ve come to realize… that just because someone provokes, questions, begs you … in any way or form, to express yourself … It is best to say nothing at all. Keep those reservations to that handful of people. Let the others wonder. Let them have their thoughts and play their games. Let them pick apart your moves and claim they know you. In the end, they are the fool and you are left standing with pride.

~But I can’t help myself, no I can’t help myself, no, no
Caught up in the middle of it
No I can’t help myself, no I can’t help myself, no, no, no
Caught up in the rhythm of it~

Don’t get caught in the middle of what they want you to feel…. or what they want you to say. keep watching.. keep waiting. That building will fall, don’t let the stones from the rubble cause you to stumble. Stand your ground. Stay strong.

~Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have (maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have (maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have (maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have (maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have)~
~Sometimes the greatest the way to say something is to say nothing~

And remember…. Keep Smiling Y’all.
