"I am sad and have a passion for unknown, distant places. I want to see the world. And I would love it, if I just had the chance to get away for a little while. But sadly, things aren’t that easy; desire won’t change a thing."
— A Dying Flower (Abraham M. Alghanem)
Psychologists suggest that actively editing your negative self-talk patterns is a powerful way to support healthier lifestyle choices. For example, anytime you catch yourself thinking, “I am too busy to work out,” rephrase the thought in more positive, empowering terms, such as, “I choose to make myself a priority.” Or, “I do have time to be healthy.” Or, “I am willing to do something active today.” Over time, those positive thought patterns will elbow out the negative ones, helping you to see your available choices more clearly."
Chicago // 2014
Every time I visit Chicago I literally have the greatest time. That city never lets me down. And this visit I got to photograph my first out of state wedding, which was AMAZING! I’ll be editing those photos and making a blog post with all their beauty soon - but for now I owe a HUGE thanks to Erin & Kristen for hosting Chris and myself at their place for 4 days. It was so nice to visit with friends and having a great place to stay at. Here are some photos from our visit - enjoy!
"Let the beauty of what you love be what you do."
