Meet Olive

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

I don't think I have mentioned this yet on here, but my family got a puppy. The cutest little German Shepherd puppy in all the land! Like seriously, she kills me with her cuteness. It is bad. Especially since she is in a biting stage at the moment, which is NOT very fun for my hands and ankles. You people with cats, I have no idea how you do it. Maybe this will prepare me for my future cats, but probably not.

This weekend my dad and I took our little pup up the canyon, and it was the funniest thing on the planet! She is OBSESSED with eating leaves, so I'm sure you can only imagine what was happening up there. It was also her first time experiencing snow, so that was also hilarious. Oh man, this pup. She is just something else!
This is right before she fell face first into the water. Haha She is definitely a curious puppy.
So yes, this is Olive, and you most likely will be seeing a lot more of her. Prepare yourselves.

I am still going through some older pictures I took this summer/ early fall, and I remembered I still hadn't posted pictures from my very first zacventure! This kid... he just cracks me up daily, and has a way of making every single day a good day. He has been such an incredible blessing in my life, and I am so lucky to have someone so wonderful.

It is crazy going through these photos. I feel like I have developed so much as a photographer (still don't think that is the right choice of word), and it is all thanks to these fun zacventures I get to go on. I am so comfortable behind my camera now, even in the presence of other people. I am just more confident in my picture taking skills, so it is something I continually think about and want to do.

I guess with that said, you should know that these photos are nothing fancy. They are more just of this guy I love, and why he is constantly making me laugh. I was cracking up going through these photos. This was our first adventure venturing up to the highest paved road in Utah. Such a beautiful drive, but you will have to take my word for it, because I didn't exactly take pictures. Sorry about it. Also a few pictures of a little pit stop to watch some trains. My man loves him some trains.
This is what happens when you leave your camera on the picnic table, because you forgot your water bottle in the car. I didn't know any better at the time. Now I do. Haha
See this log?! Zac has skills AND balance, so he was able to walk across it. I warned that if I went out there I would fall. Obviously I decided to go out anyway, and sure enough as I was walking back to land, both feet slipped on both sides of the log leaving me with some good battle wounds, and bruises on the inside of both of my calves. Yay for no coordination! 
These pictures really just make me so happy. I just can't even wait for all the adventures yet to come!

So I have finally decided to stop being lazy, and post pictures I took basically five hundred years ago. No big deal or anything. These photo are from this summer. I guess this is kind of cheating, because I didn't take this pictures. My friend Anna from Anna Apricot did!

I guess this would be the time to let everyone know that I have had some changes in life plans. I am no longer going to be serving an lds mission. It is something that I feel good about, and I decided that school was more important to me. I kind of got caught up in all my friends leaving on lds missions, that I thought it was the right thing for me. I am so much happier with my decision to stay, and I feel like a huge stress has been lifted off my shoulders.

I want to thank all of you for being so supportive throughout this whole process. It is crazy to have such a support system from people I have never even met. You guys are the best, and I am so grateful for you all.

Well, I guess back to the pictures. Again, these were taken by my lovely friend Anna. I asked her to take missionary photos of me. I am so in love with the results, that I just had to share. This was the photo shoot that involved the billion pound chair that almost killed us! Enjoy!

And of course I wouldn't be me without a picture like this!

So I may be EXTREMELY behind on posting pictures. I may or may not have taken these like... 3 months ago. Lets not talk about it.

This is one of my favorite places in Utah. It is a three minute drive from my house. I love having someplace so close that I can go and escape to. There is just something about the mountains that clears your mind, and helps you focus your thoughts. A place to get away from the sound of a fast paced life, and breathe in fresh mountain air. My goodness, it is just wonderful. Plus, it is gorgeous. I mean, look at this place.
Ugh, excuse me while I escape to the mountains forever.

An Etsy Shop

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Alright all you lovely humans, I need your help! I have decided to open an Etsy shop. Yes, I know it is crazy! I wanted to start out with trying to sell a few of my prints. Who knew picking photos would be so difficult!! What I need you guys to do is vote. Vote like crazy! I am going to show you some of the photos I was thinking of, and you guys leave a comment with which ones are your favorite. If you think of a photo of mine that is not listed, TELL ME AND LEAVE A LINK!

Thank you all for being patient with me while I try to make time for this blog of mine, and for always helping me out with silly things like this. Let the voting begin!


I promise that in the near future I will find a better name, and banner. Until then, it is going to be a little boring name wise. Check out what I have listed so far here. 

I love all you wonderful humans, and thank you for helping me!!
