you have taken these words from my unspoken lips and painted a beautiful picture from it....

“I am one of the searchers. There are, I believe, millions of us. We are not unhappy, but neither are we really content. We continue to explore life, hoping to uncover its ultimate secret. We continue to explore ourselves, hoping to understand. We like to walk along the beach, we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power, its unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty. We like forests and mountains, deserts and hidden rivers, and the lonely cities as well. Our sadness is as much a part of our lives as is our laughter. To share our sadness with one we love is perhaps as great a joy as we can know — unless it be to share our laughter.

We searchers are ambitious only for life itself, for everything beautiful it can provide. Most of all we love and want to be loved. We want to live in a relationship that will not impede our wandering, nor prevent our search, nor lock us in prison walls; that will take us for what little we have to give. We do not want to prove ourselves to another or compete for love.
For wanderers, dreamers, and lovers, for lonely men and women who dare to ask of life everything good and beautiful. It is for those who are too gentle to live among wolves.”

mail time.

hello neglected bogger world....why yes, i have ignored you for quite some time now. no offense. it wasn't you....really...it was me. haha. i was in dior need of a break. several actually. internet break. work break...and oh yeah, spring break. i didn't even bring my computer to siesta keys with me! can you believe it? thank god for corey's iphone b/c i was able to keep up on my blog-reading while we sat for hours in a traffic jam (yeees. we drove to florida. yeees. we were stuck in traffic long, extended periods of time. yeees. it took us at least 24-hours to make it home. yeees. i am still exhausted.)....alas, the trip was WONDERFUL. so many things to say and rant about....but once again, i am lazy. i will post some videos from the trip...if i get around to it. haha. *suspense*
i have to tell you. one of my FAVORITE things about coming home from vacation is getting a ton of mail the day you get back. i wont lie. I LOVE MAIL. if you want to send me mail DO IT!!!! i honestly love. it. recently, my friend kimberly (who lives in MA) and i have decided to become penpals because we love mail so much. it has been fun and i was excited to see a lovely letter from her when i got home.....not to mention, guess what else was waiting for me in my mail pile? the pamphlet from the tim burton exhibit that my friend kat (from ny) went to! i was so excited to see it...if only i could have made it to the show! i love tim burton. creepy...but cool. ALSO in my mail pile was a "save the date" postcard from one of my brides for this summer...i always get geeked when couples send me stuff with the pictures i took on them. i cant wait for their wedding....a beach wedding!!! my first one to photograph. its hard to believe wedding season has already started...i have an engagement session to shoot this weekend and two senior sessions coming up too....so past clients and fellow blog readers...feel free to send me your stuff! i love to look at what you have done with it! 

...as for summer (haha)...i swung by the salvation army today to apply for day camp. hard to believe i have been doing this for over 7 summers! weird. even when i count it out, it doesn't seem like that long. i can't wait. i honestly enjoy that job so much.

and speaking of work...i am in the process of creating my unit lessons. i cannot wait to have the opportunity to get into my classroom and start setting things up....although that means summer would be over and i have big BIG plans.

well...i think that is enough. i will try not to wait so long next time. hope everyone is well! i am off to enjoy the sunshine.


ps. anyone want to buy me a hammock??? hahhaa.
