Etcetera #11

Hello, dears!

Yikes. I haven’t done an “etcetera” post in three months – my computer is about to burst with random photos! I went through these again and again and eventually couldn’t bear to narrow them down anymore, so prepare for the biggest photo dump I’ve posted on here in a while. O.o This may require a cup of hot something or a snack, if you’re that kind of person. 😉

Anyway, I’m rather excited about this mish-mashed collection of cute pups, jelly beans, self portraits, foggy photography, tangled plants, adventures, and aesthetic pictures. 🙂 I’ll keep my captions to a minimum so you can just scroll and enjoy.

(Also happy Valentine’s day; I almost forgot. XD) Let’s do this!

Winter Palette {a Collection of Photos}

Hello, dears!

I’ve been taking lots of winter walks lately and getting pictures which are… kinda blah. Heh. It’s hard to find much variety and color in winter landscapes, you know? I think of blue and white as winter colors, but without snow, the palette is more like brown and gray. However, today I decided to try and embrace that, partially inspired by this lovely post, and pick out some of those photos to edit in a wintery, understated way.

Did they turn out aesthetic or just… brown? XD I don’t know, you’ll have to see what you think of my attempt! Read on for some interesting bits of winter I’ve collected for you. 🙂

Foggy Wanderings

Hello, dears!

I took these photos one morning when a light fog covered our farm. Unfortunately, it cleared up pretty quickly, but I was able to get some nice pictures before it did! I love the way fog makes everything just a little bit magical and enchanted-looking, kind of the way snow does in winter. 🙂 Enjoy a foggy walk with me!

September {Poetry & Pictures}

Hello, dears!

Today I have some more poetry + fall aesthetics for you. I’m really excited about both! I went outside just as the sun was setting the other day to get some September-y photos and then had fun editing to make them even more so. I interspersed a few pictures throughout the poem and added the rest at the end because I couldn’t bear to leave them out. 🙂

If you’re excited for fall, you might enjoy this post! If you’re not – well, maybe you’ll be excited for it now. 😛

Enjoy, my friends!

Vacation 2019 {Part 2)

Hello, dears!

I’m back with the second part of our recent vacation! I’m super excited about this post because 1) I got tons of pictures of the most gorgeous surprise party + my best friend Aria, and 2) I MADE A VIDEO! I sneakily took clips of most of the things we did that weekend and compiled them for Aria after I got back. I hope you enjoy watching that at the end of the post as well as browsing through the photos. 🙂

But before you get started, an announcement: My friend Amanda and I are starting a podcast about books! 😀 You can find out more about it and about us by listening to the first episode here. If you ever wondered what I sound like, well now you can know! 🙂 Also go follow Amanda’s blog while you’re at it, because it’s excellent. ❤

Now, onto the post. Please read this on my site for best formatting results.

Vacation 2019 {Part 1}

Hello, dears!

Last week, my family and I went on vacation to North Carolina. We had a lovely time, both staying at our vacation house, and visiting my friend Aria and her family (but more on that next time 😉 ). Today I’m going to be posting about the first couple of days, including some photography from the beautiful space where we stayed and a bunch of pretty pictures I got when we went boating on the lake behind the house. Enjoy!

Blind Rainbow {Aesthetics + Poems}

Hello, dears!

***NOTE: I had to re-publish this a couple of times since WordPress wasn’t cooperating. Sorry if you’ve seen it more than once!***

Anyway. Here’s an interesting question: how would you describe your favorite color to a blind person? It’s HARD, isn’t it? I tried writing a description of my favorite color without the word “purple” in it, and had so much fun that I wrote a bunch more!

Today I’m going to try to describe ten different colors in no particular order using little poems or sketches in such a way that you can figure out which color I’m referring to without me actually naming it. (Did that make any sense?) I’ll follow each sketch with a photo in case you need a hint, so scroll slow if you don’t want spoilers. XD Have fun!

Small Town Explorations {Fourth Fun, Part 1}

Hello, dears!

Today I have some fun city photography for you for a change! I took a bunch of pictures when our cousins came to visit us on Independence Day weekend and we all went on a lovely day trip to a nearby town. As you’ll see, it’s quite an aesthetic and well-kept place, with plenty of excellent photography opportunities – from painted murals to vintage diners. Enjoy this little walk about town!
