life is short, so laugh and flip your hair.

I adore hair. I always have--especially long hair. I couldn't resist the fair weather today, so I dragged Liv out and demanded a laughter-and-flipping-of-the-hair photo shoot. The sunlight was filtering through the trees, and though we only had ten minutes, we enjoyed ourselves immensely.

At least, I did. :]

..And since I am in the photog mood: I have never been to Paris, but our fair city of Portland the other night whispered of it. I'm no city girl, but there is something about the flickering, dancing firefly lights of a thousand windows on a city night that is beautiful. And so is a charmingly European cafe + street bokeh.

I couldn't resist a shot.

...Nor could I resist a few impromptu self-portraits...

^ Attractive, no? ;)

Hey, girl. Slow down. Life is short, so go laugh and flip your hair, take a photo every day, do silly things, curl your hair with socks, make a finger puppet, write a rambling blog post filled to the brim with happy photos, tell someone you love them, and most of all

don't forget who you are and Who's you are.

  6. Loved this post girly.

    I was remembering tonight while watching old family videos of when we were little how life just flies by. Makes me really want to enjoy and embrace each moment each breath I'm given.

    So yes, I'm going to strive to laugh a lot, and live life for Christ, and just be me. :D
