Rows of Smiles


I haven't given spring enough credit in past years, it might just be becoming my favorite season! It's the great awakening of the Earth from the dead and cold of winter. The air is fresh, the colors are brighter, and everyone starts to find all the GOOD life has to offer!

I got back from San Francisco on Monday morning, unpacked, rested, worked out, got some homework done, and headed over to my Dad's. I drove the truck over on the ferry early the next morning and picked up Alissa at SU and we headed north for the Skagit Valley Tulip Fields outside of Mount Vernon! It was supposed to rain the whole day but lucky enough it ended up being overcast, the sun would peek out in between the clouds, and then after walking around taking silly iPhone pictures and enjoying our day outside, it started raining hard for probably 5 minutes. Everyone fled inside to the little market area but I told Alissa that we were staying. And let me tell you, it was so worth it. I love how you can kind of see some raindrops in these last few images. I am proud to walk away with these images. Not going to lie, it took me a while to find the creative energy here because the tulips are so short and flat and it was much smaller than I may have made it seem in these images. ;) You never know when or how inspiration will hit you.

Alissa and I have been finally checking many things off our little bucket list of adventures we talked about doing when we became roommates! On our ferry ride back to drop off the truck at my Dad's, I thought to myself how it's crazy how comfortable you can get around someone. It feels as if Alissa and I have known each other forever. I feel really lucky to gotten to this stage in our friendship because it really means a lot to me. Understanding how others live, and taking note about how even you portray yourself at times is something I've learned this year and it's important to take the time to slow down and recognize what you need to do for yourself to make your days the best they can be. Whenever I'm with Alissa, she teaches me so much about how I see the world. She says somethings that totally resonate with me but I would have never been able to find the words to explain what I was thinking. She feels like a sister I have never had.
