a portrait a visit (or something like that...)

one of my summer goals is to get boyfriend to take a picture each time i see him this summer.
we'll see how it goes... ;)
{he hates having his picture taken}

typically he isn't a good sport,
but i love him and this sort of "documentation", if you will, will allow me
to experiment more with my camera.

visit one (5/2):



visit two (5/15-5/16):




i love this quirky man of mine.

Eddie.


On May 9th, my little pup, Eddie, passed away from cancer. His last twelve hours of life came to a sudden fruition, and (sad to say it) they were really painful for him physically, and for my family emotionally.

He had cancer for a while but he was a strong little guy.
Even in his last few minutes he was relentless, refusing to lie down despite feeling so weak.

He filled my childhood with so much love, humor and mischief.
We miss his feisty little presence every day.

It amazes me how much animals can mean to people.

I love this little guy so so so much,
and I miss him dearly.

About a month ago I got a new camera for my birthday, and it was a week before my birthday that we received Eddie's cancer diagnosis. So, before I headed back to school to finish my semester, I snapped some photos of him just in case he didn't make it to my summer break.
Fortunately he waited it out for me, and died the week I returned home. But I 
treasure my pictures from that little "photo shoot."

So, I want to share some of my favorites.
I may be bias, but I don't think anyone can deny his cuteness ;)

xoxo

Love you, Mr. Edward

in love with nude things lately...

seriously.

attempting to purchase these shoes while in church, i might add,
was a BIG debacle. you could even ask my friend, karli.

i tried buying them about eight times and boyfriend tried, too,
and in the end the shoes sold out and now i can't find them anywhere!
{first world problems...}


also, these ankle boots remind me a bit of shorter heeled chelsea shoes
so i know that i'd really love them in the fall, but summer is practically here, too, so that works ;)


AND THEN THERE'S THESE BEAUTS THAT I JUST CAN'T FIND FOR A CHEAPER PRICE
BUT, OH WELL, JUST LOOK AT THEM ANYWAY.



topshop is a shopping lover's dream, let me tell you.
