Self-portrait 24

I recently decided to give Pinterest a try.  My sister and quite a few of my friends were already on Pinterest and all the time I saw the neat things they would find on there.  I wanted to find neat things too!  One thing I’ve discovered Pinterest useful for is hair styles.  I’m constantly looking for new ways to style or pull back my hair, and Pinterest is just exploding with all sorts of ideas and styles.  What I’ve done to my hair in these photos is what’s called a “bohemian twist”.  I got the idea from this video.  Instead of doing just my bangs though I did it all the way back on both sides and then tied off  both pieces with one elastic.  I obviously didn’t take the time to curl my hair the day I did this, but I do want to try it again with curled hair so it has a more finished look.


John, Tori, and William

Introducing John, Tori, and their adorable son William!  We met on a lovely Saturday afternoon to take their family/engagement photos.  John and Tori are such a cute couple and their son William is certainly not lacking in good looks either.

This is me working away on a Friday afternoon after my cousin and I explored the city-wide garage sales going on in town earlier in the day.  Obviously I took a short break from working to stage this photo.  I never have this good of posture when I’m working.  :)  The sunburn is completely genuine though, unfortunately.  I seem to sunburn whether or not I put on sunscreen.  Yes, I know it’s terribly unhealthy of me to not wear sunscreen. I just can’t seem to find any that works.  My shoulders always get hit the hardest and every time I end up with a brand new crop of freckles once the peeling stops.  I’ve found that aloe lotion and Bacitracin work wonders on making sunburns go away.
