Happy Weekend

50452120e335bea5dee8109b86e4369e.jpgHappy weekend friends! One week of school down, six left to go. Lately I’ve been having fun combing through old black and white photos like the one above to see what gems I can find. I don’t know why, it’s just so inspiring! Photography is incredible.

Anyways, I don’t have much planned for this weekend– brunch with a friend, homework, a little shopping perhaps. But next weekend is Easter, and two of my friends from Germany are visiting me and my family! I could not be more excited. It’s been so long since I’ve seen anyone from my summer in Hildesheim and I miss them desperately.

Well, have a good one friends and I’ll meet you back here next week!

Happy Weekend and Happy Two Year Blogiversary Passports and Paintbrushes!

IMG_8721.JPGYesterday marked my two year anniversary of blogging. And yes, blogiversary is a real word now! Wow how time flies when you’re documenting it online :p This little space of mine has come to mean more to me than words can express. It has followed me to England, Germany, America and beyond, preserving my precious memories in words and photos. It’s my place to reflect, dream, and express myself. It has become my greatest creative outlet and sustained me through hard times. It pushes me to live a more adventurous life. It has allowed me to share my life with family and friends and readers who’ve joined along the way. I’ve published over 300 posts, each sharpening my writing skills and fine-tuning my voice that much more. I feel honored to be a part of the blogging community and don’t plan on going anywhere soon. I’m officially addicted to blogging, for better or for worse! Happy blogiversary Passports and Paintbrushes, may year three be as sweet as the last two.
