i’ve always wanted to host a give-a-way. so, what better reason, than my 508th post? this blog, from post 1 to 508, has been an unexpected journey to a deeper understanding of myself and how i fit inside the world. after 2.5 years of writing here, i’m beginning to admit that i really do love writing, something i never in a million years thought i could do, let alone enjoy. this blog has taught me so much about community, about how life happens in the details and small moments. it’s reminded me to remember those small moments, to carry my camera everywhere i go, and to be intentional with my words and my actions. i love that my creative journey has been documented here. i love that i’ve met some of my closest friends here. i love that i’ve gained so much wisdom and support from the community that exist here. and i love all the inspiration in blog-world. i am forever surprised by all its goodness.
so, to celebrate this 508th post, i’d like to give away $100 worth of goodies from my etsy shop! the details: leave a comment here in this post, and i’ll draw names in one week. the winner gets to choose whatever they’d like up to $100. yay! i can’t wait to see who wins!
in other news, on saturday we went to the maverick’s big wave surf contest. amazing. the ocean. the massive waves. the amount of people. the bright blue sky. we woke up at 5am to make sure we got there very early. here we are pilgriming our way up the cliffside for the big wave views and here’s a shot of the people watching. pretty cool.
i’ve also been doing a few updates to my website, mainly new photos and an updated news page. oh yes, and i’m now offering mattes for all my prints – they’re up on my etsy boutique now. so, if you’ve ever bought a print from me, and your looking for a matte to fit it, check out my etsy boutique for more info… (**prints to fit my 8×8 prints coming later this week). i’ve also updated my blog’s sidebar with new resources/inspiration/music/books. it’s been a wonderful weekend. i am loving all the sunshine we are finally getting after several days of rain and wind. and i’m loving all the time outside, being in the air.
