One More

Still Life

Today was a challenging one- in studio- I attempted a 60's style still life with lava lamp- It didn't turn out the way I'd hoped- I'm going to re-shoot... The picture above is inspiring- Human creativity- its an amazing thing- I can't begin to imagine what Heavenly Father's brain must be like!

A beautiful night to all- or day, depending on what side of the hemisphere you're on~

Hair Creme?

I did my first "hair shoot" yesterday- Loved it. Sudie was a fantastic model- such a sweetie- and her stylist, Hannah, was extremely helpful- it was a gorgeous afternoon in the park-side. I had tons of fun and can't wait to do it again!

Ghostly Calm

I have a lot to be grateful for... I attend an awesome ward (congregation). I have a wonderful family. Heavenly Father blesses me often. I had a wonderful Sabbath today-

Last Night: Kristen hosted a ghoulishly delightful party at the Lawrence Manor- Loved the music, freshly baked bread, and the sabotage of the "Hanging Doughnut Garden". Derek wins a silver!

As Justin and I walked back to the car after the party, it was closing in on 1:30 a.m. The street was silent black- the only sounds were the harmony of piano and Catherine's voice spilling out of Kristen's opened door, carrying down the road- It was so still and so peaceful last night- We stood in the middle of the street, almost holding our breath- absorbing the calm-

October Goodness

Fall, how I love thee- Let me count the ways! I love the cooling of the weather. Even though an Indian summer is in full force, my morning walk was crisp, breezy, and cool- It filled me with excitement for the months to come.

I just spent the last two weeks with a former missionary companion; Michelle "Williams" Ma Chong. We engaged in a light-speed tour of Southern California and now she is in Salt Lake, getting ready to experience General Conference up close and personal.

It's been a blessing to see her again- I've learned so much from her during our brief visit together; what it means to love, "It's not about you", Aussie culture and life... The list is lengthy, but I'll stop there.

In sum, I am grateful for the people Heavenly Father places in my path.
