Can You See Me Now?

Can You See Me Now?

On March 1, my life changed forever. No, I did not have another child. Better! (Arguably.) I underwent VisianICL, a vision correction surgery that improved my vision from worse than 20/800 to 20/20 within 24 hours. A lot of people have asked me about my experience, so...

Year-End Reflection – 2017

I no longer remember where I got this list of year-end reflection questions, but I like using it to think about the past, present, and future. Looking Back What one event, big or small, are you going to tell your grandchildren about? I don’t know if...

Adventures in Film Photography: Flowers

Welcome to this week’s edition of Film Friday! (I say this like I plan ahead enough to actually have a regularly recurring blog feature…bahaha. I can dream, can’t I?) The kinda cool/frustrating thing about shooting in film is the time-capsule...
Facebook-Free February

Facebook-Free February

Yesterday while scrolling through my blog feeds, I read a post on Apartment Therapy about giving up social media for a month. Somewhat impulsively, I thought, “Me too!” and decided to phase out Facebook for a month. (Conveniently enough, I happened to...
