i’m really bad at this “wannabe fashion blogger” stuff, but i don’t even care. blogging is something i have thought about for years and one day, when i get better i will look back at all these embarrassing photos and think to myself that i did everything that i had to when starting out in something new. just like when it comes to photography! i look back at some of my photos and think to myself, “how did i get paid for that?” but i did. and i worked hard. and things got better. i got better. i got bigger. and now photography is my job.

fall is definitely my favorite time of year. i am not sure why, but when fall rolls around i just start to feel so alive. and since big things are happening for us, i am pretty sure fall of 2016 will be the best fall yet!
i am trying to soak up these last few warm days and wear out all my summer clothes. i have had such a hard time finding clothes lately. i feel like i am now ready to get away from shopping at stores like american eagle, h & m, and forever 21 and ready to shop for clothes more my age. that sounds so old and depressing and it is even worse seeing it in writing. no really, i feel like i aged 10 years just saying that… i can feel the wrinkles and grey hair coming in as i write this! 🙁
you guys, i feel so lucky. i was given the opportunity to jump in on a family trip to disneyland after i had just gone to disneyland. haha. my mom had already purchased a 3 day pass hopper for my step sister who ended up not going at the last minute. i road down south with my family, spent only two of the 3 days (so sad a day went to waste) and then rented a car and drove back because i had to work. it was so much fun to see disney through the eyes of all my nieces and nephews. they had such a great time. you could tell because they were super hyper and talked really fast and jumped up and down a lot, etc. haha. it was so great! plus, my nieces are getting older and are so much fun to be around. i always say that they are my best friends and don’t even know it. i totally want to be them when i grow up 😉
going to disneyland can be pretty tiring and some of the little ones had to head back for naps. my youngest niece kendall was super sick.. it was really sad. so, the smaller kiddos headed back to the hotel with jay for naps and the older girls stayed with my mom and jen and i. it was totally a flash back to my childhood because us adults really wanted to get a drink somewhere so we made the kiddos sit behind us at the bar. i can remember countless times this happened to me. lol. my mom would kill me for saying this and i am probably being overly dramatic because it may have only happened a handful of times. my family has a home in mexico and i can remember being a kid and having to sit outside of a bar while all the adults were inside having a great time. haha.
first off, thank you everyone so much for all of the comments, texts, and messages that i received from my last post in regard to our miscarriage. i really wasn’t looking for anything more than to hopefully reach someone that may have or may be going through something similar, but the response that i received from so many amazing people was unbelievable! all of the comments showing support or even those who spoke out to say that they have gone through a miscarriage also, just goes to show that when people open up, it allows others a pathway to do the same. often times i think that we hide things that make us feel like we are different or aren’t good enough and that is so far from the truth. truth is, we all walk different roads in life and we all have different struggles. none of which makes us any less. if anything, all of the different paths make us stronger, smarter, and sometimes even more of an inspiration to others.
