Talk it out

11410013
If I was good at this whole thing we would probably be talking about the flower story I have in Brides this month. (And how I totaled my car on the way to the shoot.) Or the classes I'm planning to teach in my new space. (And how I didn't return a single work email for 6 days straight last week.) Or the bouquet I made on set yesterday for a magazine cover. (And how I was forced to wash my hair with cat shampoo that morning because I forgot to go to Rite Aid the night before.)

We could also talk about my visit to Portland a few weeks back. (And the hike that made me question my life's location.) Or maybe my mom, since it was mother's day? (In the meantime, go here and marvel all over again.) Or I could use copious exclamation points telling you that tomorrow I'm headed to Elmwood for the first time this year. (I need to rent a car.)  ( ! )

But right now, let's practice non-verbal communication. Look into my eyes and all of that, because I don't have much else to say.

  3. I've used horse shampoo, if that tells you anything about the state of my life in general (although lately I've been of the not washing it sort because ugh) I think we're all in good company!

    Classes! Ahh! Exiting!

  4. You've had quite the time lately! It all sounds like a beautiful life though...full of dreams.
    I was thinking the other day that we haven't heard about Elmwood in a long time. I love your stories and photos of your visits there...enjoy yourself! I still wish I had an Elmwood in my life. :)

  8. Move to Portland (we're talking about Oregon's Portland, right?)! Or at least, the vicinity. I'm not a big city girl, but I sure do ♥ the Pacific Northwest. If you relocate here, I'll be sure to keep your flower shop in business and your classes well-populated.

  19. Thanks for posting amid the chaos and giving us all a treat. All the stuff we feel the need to catch up on all too often immobilizes us. totally understandable! insanely jealous that you are headed to NH. Have a wonderful, peaceful time. And safe travels!!

  20. Well if the things you have in mind are similar to the pictures you offer us here, they're beautiful ...* I can see deep happiness covered by a thin snow of painfully pleasurable melancholy.. Thank you for these images*

    Can you tell me what camera and lens you are using?
    Thanks,

  23. Non-verbal communication works well with me. I know it's kind of a cliche but your pictures really DO say more than thousand words. I guess life isn't that bad after all, even though the car crashed and washing your hair with cat shampoo?
