Yesterday during sound check @dispatch invited me to sit in on a tune! i remember the first time i heard these dudes play and the impact they had on me at that time. they in many ways planted a seed in me all those years ago, showing me and so many that you could be a musician and at the same time use your platform to make a positive change off stage as well. having the opportunity to now hang and get to know these guys has been awesome and feels so full circle. i don’t know if i would be where i am today with nahko and mftp if it wasn’t for bands like dispatch showing us the way. so thankful!
In 2011, this couple was my first wedding!!! and now they have three boys! makes my heart so happy to watch and document their relationship and family grow!! this is exactly why i’m primarily a wedding photographer but still do newborns and families!! because when you’re ready, i want to come full circle with you and watch your family grow!!! i love documenting where it all began and then getting to see you again and again!!! #ncphotographer#fullcircle#lifelongfriends#lifelongrelationships
When i went outside to gather some daisies and clover for my altar this morning this little red dragonfly flew in and landed right in front of me. i knew it was hecate as she has come to me in this way before. you see the red dragonfly was the first to ever come to and became my totem animal. this is my time of transformation. funny thing is, i feel like i’ve made a complete circle and i’m back at the beginning. #dragonfly#reddragonfly#hecate#transformation#backatthebeginning#fullcircle
I never understood when i would hear "there is no living if its a life without you." i wasnt understanding how people could be with someone and feel like they're their whole purpose for living, just didnt seem healthy. but than i think of our relationship and the moment i was told you were dying. that is exactly how i felt. i had no idea how to live life without you. you were my one and only constant in my life. the greatest love i will ever have.
it wasnt until years later being faced with my biggest and hardest milestone alone and me getting past all the anger and sadness associated with realizing from that moment and all other moments, you will no longer be there, that there really is a full circle to life. i know if it werent for you in life i wouldnt be here and in death i wouldnt have my son today.
although its been a decade, i miss you more than ever and so badly wish you were here to have a relationship with my kids. but, until we meet again, may you rest in peace and dance your a*s off everyday. love you oma, rip. #fullcircle
i know some of the educators are still using other products, but i want to do an annual back to school educator mystery host event to mix things up and give you all a chance to see why people are giving clever a chance! what do you guys think?
Was looking through my shelves today for a book i've got on dahlias. of course it's nowhere to be seen but i also chanced upon an old school book of mine from, ahem, 1982. i think it covers most of what we need to know about dahlias ☺️ funnily enough, i've lived all over the place (countless towns and cities, a few different countries), but this flower garden i'm growing happens to be but a stone's throw from the very school. i'd love to go back and tell 13-year-old me.
Ten years ago, had i been told i would be wearing the sandals i currently wear. i would have said the loudest no. no way. "me, adu mercy? you must have the address wrong." i would have sent angel gabriel back or asked him to check on google maps the right direction. i would have even loaned him my compass, my myron.
see these sandals have cut my feet, they have left me blistered. scars upon scars. there are moments i have removed these sandals and walked barefeet, feeling the sand beneath my feet and sometimes thorns pricking my tender soles. while i have enjoyed the feeling of the sand beneath my feet, the thorns have not been pretty at all. my scars are the reason i now walk gingerly, and sometimes behave like casper the friendly ghost.
but this woman in this picture wouldn't have it any other way, i am officially in love with her. yeah i know that sounds vain. i didn't like her for the longest time. i tried to change her, to quiet hwr down, to be less strong willed, to sip water and just shut up.
and then i heard his voice, "i created you. i knit you in your mother's womb. i put your soul together. sunrise and sunset chaser. goosebumps on your skin because you have just watched the starry night. sometimes quiet you. i created you and i love you. i think you are to die for and i did just that. pass on the scars to me. i have a plan for those too. even the wounds you hide so well"
Full circle ⭕️ the last time i was in venice, i took the photo on the left. it hangs on the wall in our guest room. i had no idea where i was when i took it, but loved this little ally. when we first arrived to venice, we had to walk down the same exact little ally. it was a little twightlightzone moment. 👀#fullcircle i love the little pug.. and like the new photo better! 😂😂so so cute! makes me miss my doggies🐶🐶
