"even when the skies were gray, you would rub me on my back and say "baby it'll be okay", method man said it best in mary j. blidge's you're all i need. life is full of ups and downs. things may seem bleak, but there is always a silver lining, knowing that keeps me motivated to be better than i was yesterday. what a lovely cliché. LOL! seriously, we all need encouragement... stay encouraged!
it's starting to feel more like winter, with flurries of snow here and there, but the sun never fails me. these past few weekends have been beautiful!! i recently took a photography class at living social with douglas sonders [which was amazing!] and i felt this weather was a perfect setting to put my new camera and photography skills to work. obviously I didn't take the pictures of myself, but i set my settings, took a few test shots of my photographer and passed on the camera, the rest was magic. our shots came out great! a simple after brunch test shoot in the national harbor turned into a full-on glam session.
when i left home earlier in the day it felt a little warm [to me at least :)] hence, the sheer split maxi. never the less, i felt kute, so nothing much else mattered. ha! it was something very ethereal about this look... whimsical skirt, different shades of grey, curls flowing in the wind... it all came together, funny how that happens when you least expect it.
