Scenes from the Summer

Just a few photos from the summer.

Random things. Things that maybe didn't have the biggest impact on the season but happened non the less.



10 years.

10 years ago I was 14 going on 15.

10 years ago I was a sophomore in High school.

10 years ago today I woke up to go to school like any other day.

10 years ago today I wore my favorite pink tank top and sparkly belt.

10 years ago today I watched the news. Like every morning before school.

10 years ago today I didn't understand how someone could accidentally crash their plane into a building.

10 years ago today I watched a second plane on live feed do the same thing.

10 years ago today I was confused. What was going on?

10 years ago today I watched the news in all of my classes. I was so interested.

10 years ago today I wrote in my dairy that the USA had been attacked by terrorist

10 years ago today I cried myself to sleep....feeling helpless. I wanted to help those people who were trapped in the buildings ruble.

10 years ago today the world changed

10 years ago today was one of the scariest and saddest days in my life.

I will always remember 10 years ago from today. As many of you will too.

Today; I'm proud to be an American. Today; I stop and take a minute to think about those who we lost. Today; I celebrate life.

Ps. Happy Birthday to my brother. 19 years old...can't believe it.


a good way to start the day..

Hope you all had a great 3 day weekend! I spent the weekend in Reno with my family. It's an annual tradition. I think it's 6 years strong. I will share pictures from the weekend soon... but wanted to share these pictures first...


The sunrise that started off a good day last week. Is there anything better then seeing the sun rise and have it look like that? gorgeous...don't you think?

Hope the next week treats you well.


the yuba


My happy place.

South Yuba River. Natural playground. Beautiful.



a few pictures from this years fair. didn't take too many photos this year. I usually go everyday but i had to miss the last day this year because I woke up sicker then a dog. I thought it was food poisoning but Anthony ended up coming down with the same thing 2 days later. it was awful. Nothing worse then getting sick in the summer time and to top that on the last day of the fair!
