thesuitcasestudio It's been just about 2 years since I last stepped foot on a softball field, but it felt just like old times. Except for all the new faces. And that we were bundled in hoodies, beanies & scarves. But it was still the SAME, in so many ways. Cheering each other on, laughing at the near-misses, and fumbling all over the place. Yeah... these are my people. And it's gonna be a pretty great season, win or lose. #inbend #bendoregon #pinenursery #softball #beerleague #playball #practice #lifestylephotography #storyofmylife 5d

thesuitcasestudio One year ago today, my life completely changed... •
Watching the run rise from behind the wheel of my tiny roller skate of a car; belting out Taylor Swift tunes to stay awake as I passed fields of green. Mountains rising up to greet me as the smog I left behind became more of a distant memory. •
Goodbye, Orange County, California... the only home I'd ever known till that morning. And HELLOOOOO, Bend, Oregon... the place that already felt like home, the closer and closer I got. •
Turning my head to glance at Erik, still snoozing in the passenger seat, a warm wave of affection washed over me. This man had flown down to help me make my move... helping me pack, dealing with the movers, keeping me calm through it all, and had driven us for most of the long journey thus far.

And as we crossed the border from one state to the next, I knew I was crossing another invisible line, as well. My life would never be the same from this point on. •
And it hasn't been. I was welcomed with arms wide open, embraced by the community I've come to know & love. I've gotten to embrace my creative side, working with SO many amazing people & brands like @spookydawson @spookynation @backdropdistilling @goodlifebrewing @silvermoonbrewing @3sistersequinerescue @yetisnacks @nobakecookieco @holabend @adventuremedics @nevadodemos @bendsnip @armaturebend @birdiescafe and more.

I've truly found mySELF this past year. And with that discovery, I have also been able to give my full self in a relationship. Erik and I have only grown closer, and it's seemed like one of the most natural, beautiful and rewarding things that's ever happened in my life. •
So, happy one year anniversary. To me, to us, to everything that's come and everything that still lies ahead. I'm living proof that it's never too late to find your joy, and that sometimes the best adventures are the unexpected ones. •
Here's to living an authentically beautiful life! •

thesuitcasestudio Yesterday, I:
1. Flew a drone for the first time
2. Visited the Women's Expo at the @riverhousebend, ran into a few people I knew, and discovered the joy of @lularoe.
3. Got my library card & a few good books
4. Hung out with good friends, leading to lots of deep belly laughs
5. Fell asleep in my boyfriend's arms, as he whispered "I'm so happy right now."
...
Yup, life is DEFINITELY good, and I'm squeezing every moment out of it that I can!!! #inbend #bendoregon #lifestylephotographer

thesuitcasestudio Oh, SNAP!!! Trying to capture their toddler's attention for the camera, I heard them dancing directly behind me & asked them to keep doing what they were doing... but back up about 5 feet. They thought it was so they didn't get in my way. Nope... it was so I could capture THIS shot!

thesuitcasestudio Traveling solo, finding solace in such a busy place.
