A Photographic Adventure

Two posts ago I put up a preview of the mid-winter photoshoot I had with Sharyn Frenkel. Sharyn finished editing hundreds of photos in a week(CRAZY!) and now I can share with you a few of my favorites... although I must say it was really hard to pick only a few! I love them all and am so pleased with how they turned out!

Thank you Sharyn, You're the best! xoxo

When we arrived at the abandon train, Love was spray painted on the walls... how perfect for Valentines Day! :)








Love my friends!!

I mean, I really think you like me...


Yesterday I was looking through(snooping perhaps?) some old photos on Eric's computer and came across this photobooth picture we took about 4 years ago at the Willows in Salem Massachusetts. It was right after we got back together after me stupidly breaking it off with him because I was freaking out about commitment. We were so happy to be back together, and I would say still are. I was going to wait until Valentines Day to profess my love, if you will... but why wait? We don't even LIKE V-day and never do anything to celebrate it!
We met about 8 and a half years ago... He came over to me while I was waiting to go into my art history class in the Kutztown University art building and asked if I wanted to get coffee after class. I had seen him around a ton since we we were both art majors and had the most insane crush on him. I was dating someone else at the time and it was pretty serious, but I of course said yes to coffee, and we became great friends...
That summer the boy I was so head over heels in love with broke my heart and after a few weeks of self pity and crying messes and a little bit of nice weight loss, I received a package in the mail from Eric. It was him singing this silly little song and a mix tape of some really great happy songs. My favorite was the last song which was "Bowl of Oranges" by Bright Eyes. We went to the beach, and I fell in love with him pretty much instantly.

So that is the beginning... we have now been together for 7 and a half years I think almost to the day... Living together has been a huge change for us... but I am happy to say even though it is difficult, I think it is the best decision we have ever made and should have done it way earlier. I feel really lucky to have found someone who 1)Puts up with my silly antics and 2)Is so ridiculously loving, caring and kind. I really adore the life we have together and I can't wait to one day get married, and have puppy children.

So... I hope I didn't make any of you gag on your morning coffee and I hope you'll continue to read my blog. I'm not one to really express publicly how I'm feeling, but I hope you got to know a little more about me through this.

Anyway... I hope you all have a fun and safe weekend! We are going to get our hair did on Saturday morning and then going to look at a couple of house on Sunday. I still have to take photos of our apartment to show you! (After we clean this weekend perhaps??!)

Heart for You

The La Rose Clip in Red Sparkle

Yesterday my amazing photographer and great friend, Sharyn Frenkel, was sweet enough to take some new pictures of my winter goods. The above Valentines Day photo is the only one I have thus far, but I caught a peek of some of the others and they are marvelous! I can't wait to share them with you as soon as I receive them. Once again I used my beautiful model friends Stephanie(pictured above) and Leila and I even jumped into some of the shots. It was a cold out, but we were having so much fun that we didn't even notice until the end of the shoot... my toes were actually in pain as they were defrosting in the car! To celebrate such a successful shoot, and because we love each other so, we went to dinner and drank some peach sangria. The most perfect way to end an incredible day! Yuuuummmmmyyyyy! ;)


PS- Don't forget! Now through January 31st help yourself to 10% off with coupon code NEW2011 <3
