Diversion & Photography

In focusing on myself and getting to a place where I am comfortable with my own mental health and in taking care of myself–sometimes a break is needed. So I’ve been working on that and trying to make myself a happier person in general. Something I promised myself I would do almost 8 years ago […]

Reindeer

This is what I did 2 weeks ago for my weekend away from real life! I went to a Reindeer Farm in Leavenworth, WA. I mean, Leavenworth itself is super fun–tiny Bavarian-inspired village. What’s not to like? So my mom, aunt and I went for a weekend getaway; had fun shopping, wandering and just enjoying […]
