Cannon Beach



Earlier this summer my family drove to Cannon Beach, Oregon for a of couple days so that my brother Isaiah and I could hang out at the much anticipated "That PNW Instameet". We had the chance to meet some friends and inspirations that we'd previously only known online through the Instagram app. It was an incredible day taking photos and enjoying good company, not to mention the beautiful sunset and perfect bonfire we all sat around afterward!

The relationships I've formed just by meeting people online and bonding over similar passions are incredible. And the feeling of meeting those friends in person is just unreal! It's always a party. (as long as no one is secretly an ax murderer)

Thank you to those of you who have filled out my blog survey! Your answers have been really helpful and fun to read. The survey is still open if you haven't had the chance to do it yet. Thanks for all the love as I'm hopping back into blogging, you all are the best. I love you and hope you're doing well, friends!

July Playlist





Time Is Dancing - Ben Howard
Saturn - Sleeping At Last
Tiny Fingers - Pepper Rabbit
Blonde on Blonde - Nada Surf
Metaphors - San Cisco
Sunlight - Yuno

I always love making/sharing/listening to playlists, so here's a little one for July. Just a handful of songs that I've been listening to recently, some slow and some upbeat. I've linked to the songs on youtube, but I would highly recommend finding them on spotify if you can. Or, if you prefer, you can listen to a few of them down below on a soundcloud playlist.




Also, thank you for the kind comments on my last post! I am excited to be back and sharing again. I've missed all of you, sweet friends. I created a little survey for my blog and I'd really appreciate it if you answered a few of the questions - it can be found here or via the link in the sidebar.

What music have you been listening to lately?

hey


Hello friends! It's been a good while since this little blog has been cared for, and I'm just dropping in to let you know that things are about to change. I've been feeling lots of feelings lately and struggling to find inspiration for too long but I'm finally waking up and ready to begin creating more!

To be quite honest, I had fully intended to let this blog sit in the dust for eternity and never had any plans to post again. But with a little re-designing (dysfunctional design is an inspiration killer for me) and some time I'm ready to get back into it. I tend to put a lot of pressure on myself and feel as if I need to keep up a reputation and only create certain types of work, but I'm trying to push myself out of that box and find creative freedom. I want to try new things and genuinely love and enjoy everything that I create.

I'm not entirely sure what this new season will look like for this little space of mine on the internet, but a here are just few sneak peeks into my ideas ~

 short films
 illustrations/peeks into my sketchbook
 more videos
 more writing
✚ more photos
& lots of other fun things.

While I do want to be creating what I want to create, I also want to make content that you will enjoy. So please, please let me know any ideas for videos, posts, etc. and anything that you want to see here in the future! I am open to anything and would truly love to hear your thoughts.

In conclusion, I want to thank all of you who have stuck around for so long and supported and encouraged me! You mean more than you know. I can't promise that I'll post regularly, but I can honestly say that I can't wait to start creating freely again!
