i spotted a friend while grocery shopping at my local acme. not a close friend. more like the good friend of some of my really good friends. i knew his parents lived on my street, but i hadn’t seen him in while.
to celebrate our thirtieth birthdays and kick off the next decade of our lives, my mister and i traveled to the holy land on an epic pilgrimage. one of the most powerful moments of our trip came as we waded into the cool water of the jordan river. there in the same waters where john baptized jesus, we were baptized.
every night since we discovered we were pregnant, my mister and i took a single photograph in the same spot of our house. we put together this fun time lapse video to capture both the experience of our pregnancy as well as my changing body. we hope you enjoy watching my baby bump grow!
i have been front and center for a shit ton of epic live performances by some of my favorite artists. my mister and i collect vinyl and spend countless hours hunting for treasure among stacks of wax where ever we travel.
