2018 was challenging but it also brought me closer to so many others in my life and gave me new friendships. I'm so thankful for my friends and family for being there for me this past year through so many changes. Thank you for the growth, 2018. ✨ HAPPY NEW YEAR 2019! ✨
I turned 22 on Friday and spent the evening with people I'm so thankful for. 💓 I think 22 will be my best year yet ! 🎉✨ ²²! ✨🎉
I didn't do anything super amazing this semester, but I did take a letterpress class and fell in love with it. Here's my second project using photopolymer plates. I cut off my registration marks, so getting the black to align took me nearly 10 hours alone, but I'm pretty happy with the outcome. 💗
I like adventuring with you. ☀️
So I made this animation based on the idea of rotoscoping and Muybridge's photos of motion for the second project in animation. ✨ The framing here cuts of the sides but I didn't want it to look too tiny, haha.
@fosterthepeople it was so good to see you again. Can't wait until next time. ⚡🌵
Hi, I love you. Also the interior of Monsoon Chocolate is inspo forever. I mean, just look at those tiles. .
( I also aspire to be as cool as the woman in the Gucci Saturn silver sneakers but you already knew that. 0: )
Last month I went camping with Danny and his family near Yosemite. The air quality wasn't the best in Yosemite so we didn't get to do as much as we wanted, but we still had a lot of fun visiting Tuolumne Meadows and Tuolumne Lake. We also checked out Mono Lake, the Tufas, Panum Crater, and in Mammoth we saw the Devil's Postpile and Rainbow Falls. Definitely need to go back soon. 💕🌲🏞️
Never been better ✨ // photo by @kasuebu & top by @bigbudpress // I had a photoshoot on Saturday with Katie and it was so much FUN. This is something I've wanted to try since high school and I enjoyed myself immensely. All these photos are a dream. 💖
We visited the Phoenix Art Museum on July 3rd. Kids 17 and under get in completely free now through September! Take your kids to see art! ✨🖍️✏️🖌️✒️🖋️
Spent the first days of July in Alpine with my grandparents and my boy. 🌲 We visited the Lavender Festival in Cocho, saw some roadside bighorn sheep, watched grandpa dig a big hole (he's restoring the pond), visited the tavern, ate good food, and played rummy while watching HGTV. ✨ It was pretty great. ❤️
Had a yard sale and became grandma all in the same day. I'm gonna miss this place ✨
I didn't post anything before, but I'm so proud of you. ❤️ Congratulations on graduating this year with your bachelor's in mechanical engineering and landing your first degree requiring job! You worked so hard to be where you are and I couldn't be more proud, especially having been by your side the whole time and knowing it wasn't easy. You did it! 🙌 🎉 🎓 ✨
(I'm also glad to have you back from your first work trip today. Hurry up and land so I can give you a big ol' hug! 💕)
Thank you for today and for being a part of my life these past four years. 💓 I love you lots
