I am so grateful for Rachel of One Part Gypsy for taking our engagement photos. I honestly didn’t know I could love pictures more.

recently my life has been filled with unexpectedly lovely surprises, especially regarding work. I love it when this happens. So much better than a string of unexpected shitty events, huh?

What surprised me this week?

I had my first therapy session after many many many years. I expected it to be hard to pull out of my shell but instead I was SOOOO CHATTY. Couldn’t shut me up.

Hello Friday!! So happy you’re here! Other than shooting engagement pictures on Saturday with Rachel, Brian and I have no plans. YAY! I honestly can’t tell you how excited this makes me. I’m going to sleep in, write, read, cook and watch movies. I may even stay in my pajamas all day on Sunday. Just because I can. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

I’ve started reading “Gone Girl” and I’m loving it. The writing is so good.

My friend Katie who’s traveling through Vietnam all by herself! I just love that. I’ve never traveled to a foreign land by myself but she’s inspiring me to start thinking about it!

Looking through all my road trip pictures from driving across the usa last year. Sometimes I forget how lucky I am to have had such great experiences. Expect a post about it next week!
