The churchyard

There are always things I need more of in my life; time with friends, time alone, coffee, tea, delicious food, sleep, books such as this one, taking outfit photos in Detroit...

There are so many interesting places near my work where I could take creative and amazing photos. There are at least three large churches (like this one)  in walking distance, railroad tracks, a brick-paved road, as well as a few delicately decorated abandoned houses. TONS of interesting things to be captured by my lens and shared with the world via this blog and what do I do on my lunch-break instead of exploring with said camera in tow? I read.

I also think I need more heels in my life. I have come to really appreciate how fast I can stomp through the hallways and the warehouse in them the past week. I love the terrified looks everyone gets because they think someone really important is coming and then they see it's just me, muwhahaha. It's the little things in life that keep your day interesting, no? There is always the occasional rubber-band fight when all else fails. Being a grown-up doesn't always have to be as boring as it seems. I should also refrain from referring to myself as a "grown-up"...

  8. You're only a grown-up if you act like one. It's possible to stay immature forever. :)

  12. I seriously wish we had some beautiful places like that for me to take my outfit photos around! My town is so lifeless and so far away from anything historical or even slightly interesting. Haha, I always somehow rant about my town everyday without realizing it.
    You look so adorable in that gingham dress! I also love that cardigan, it looks so comfortable and the color is phenomenal.
