Gone to the beach!

I'm out at the Jersey Shore this week with my boyfriend's family. I've decided that instead of writing blog posts, I'm going to read Boys on the Boat (my current book club choice!), take long walks along the beach just after sunrise, play a round of...

Of the moment // 8.22.14

One of the reasons why I blog is simply to have the space to write: getting things “on paper” helps me to process my feelings and organize my thoughts. I also love having a record of my life over the past few years: a place that holds all of my...

Postcard from Istanbul

Istanbul is an easy city to photograph: straddling the East and the West, it's delightfully exotic while remaining somewhat familiar and accessible. It's a colorful  city: the blues and golds of mosques and minarets dotting the skyline, the primary...

The key to confidence: think less

Here's the thing: I choose joy about 80% of the time (hey yo 80-20 rule!). The other 20% of the time, I let myself go into a seemingly-endless loop of personal negativity: there's not enough money in the bank, I'm not successful enough in marketing,...
