cloudy with a chance of northern lights

Although it was overcast, the lights shined through.. Its so ironic the one day theres high chance for really powerful northern lights (as far south as to where i live) its overcast! having clear skies for the majority of the week and the one day it really counts..
-better luck next time.

goodbye winter



I am officially saying goodbye to winter.
January and february are usually very slow months for me, I find it hard to get motivated, inspired or even go outside (hence the lack of blogposts). Despite all the bad weather, we did get some days with sunny sunshine (pictures below).

Were in halfway into march and the days are looking brighter and better already, boy am I ready for spring and summer.

turning 23




canon 6D/ ef 35mm 2.8


Today I turn 23 and life isn't what I expected it to be. Confusing, frustrating, exciting, scary, amazing, thrilling, filled with laughter one minute and tears the next..its a wild roller-coaster with highs and lows, never knowing whats around (the river bend) the next corner, before I turn into a Disney song ill get to the point.. I thought I would share some lessons I've come to learn over the years.


Don't take things too seriously.

Its never as bad as you think it is..stop overthinking!

You are your best friend and your worst enemy.

Don't be afraid to get out of your comfort zone. It is the scariest and most rewarding thing you can do.

Failing isn't the end of the world, learn from it and move on.

You can't define yourself from a job title or a degree (or the lack of one), there is more to you than paperwork and diplomas. Value your self.

Gratitude is really the key to happiness.

Don't live with regret. Looking back at missed opportunities is only gonna make you miss the once in front of you.
