desert healing

i tried to stay away from the blog in an effort to give my emotions a rest. i drove to the desert to the brick house to see morgan and her puppies and my other favorite ladies, abby and laure. a little thrifting, pigging out and time spent out on a rock in the desert was really what i needed. who knew. those ladies make me smile. and the brick house makes for a lovely place to relax and get away (barking chihuahuas and all).
and now i am back to blog about it, because what i also realize is how much i love this blog and sharing with you all.
thank you to everyone who has reached out to give me words of love and comfort. it means so much to me. if i could hug each and everyone of you, i would.
while out in jtree, i took my time staring at all the little details we sometimes miss out when taken by the gorgeous vast landscape. seeing all the little flowers fighting their way through the heat and dry dirt, the funny bird fountain built out of found objects, the basketball court in the middle of nowhere, the multiple colors of quartz rocks, the seeds hatched, roots split, animal droppings and bottle caps... reminded me of all the happenings and moments that make up the experience of the desert so amazing. in focusing on all those details, i tried to apply the same thinking to my life. i am going to take it a day at a time and really try to focus on those little moments that make it so special.



  1. Hey, what lens are you using? I need a good one with some shallow focal depth and cannot decide what to get...

  2. The desert always does it for me too, just clears everything in your brain and releases the bad stuff. You look so cute in that reflection on the car!

    PS Jtree? LOVE!
