There is something about life that absolutely captivates me, inspires me, and often leaves me dreaming. Sometimes the dreams are vast and wild, other times the dreams are lovely yet simple. Many may sleep to dream yet I find myself avoiding sleep so I can keep on dreaming. It’s a crazy thing, I know.
I dream of traveling, of living wholeheartedly, loving well, of pursuing life where I am, embracing the seasons, basking in the beauty of another day, the list could go on. I’ve decided to follow the nagging inspiration inside me which wants to blog more. Blogging to share photography with the world, to write my thoughts and most of all share the beautiful and sweet moments from life. With this inspiration, I plan to be back to blogging!
Two weeks ago, I followed the map to a new destination for a destination wedding. Dawn (my second photographer) and I hit the road a day early to embrace the travels and arrive in plenty of time while even adding a few stops along the way for inspiration. All in all, it was perfect. We found inspiration everywhere, happened upon the loveliest of places, photographed along the way, dined in the local cafes, talked of ice cream and donuts all weekend, and basically covered every topic of wonderful conversation you can imagine. By Saturday we were ready and excited to capture the big wedding day. (Which I can’t wait to blog about soon.) But for now, here’s to me being back to blogging starting with recent travels.
(All photos of me were taken by Dawn.)
:: As soon as we spotted this adorable VW Van, it was a must for a photo background. Dawn posed, then I posed and as we decided to have a bystander snap a photo of both of us, the classic moment happened, a UPS truck pulled up right beside it, blocking it from view! You should have seen the disappointed look on our faces, you would have thought we were children at candy shops being told all of the candy was gone. It gave us a good laugh to say the least.::
::Every good road trip has detours to beautiful places. We happened upon this cute little town by taking a backroad, and while making a U-Turn I spotted this adorable place and my sense of adventure had to follow the road to see what else this beautiful street held. To our great surprise, we happened upon the donut truck we had heard about every single day of our trip! It had just relocated days before. We were thrilled and decided to get donuts but once we arrived once again, we had the moments of pure laughter from the disappointment we felt when the sign read, “Closed” and “Sold out of donuts for today”. Clearly, we weren’t meant to have donuts::
