BDV: Bubbly Moments

It has been one of those weeks where I didn't do much or take too many photos since it was kind of boring, to be quite honest. Boring can be good - hey, it can be very good, especially if you have had a lot of chaos in your life. It can very well be a welcomed relief.

Saturday was a fun and pretty day. My roommate and I went out for lunch, where we split two different burgers (from Blazin' Onion) and had both ordered the Strawberry Lemonade. So yummy.

We later went to the casino, where I've never been lucky in playing slots until then - I won $100! That was completely unexpected and awesome, and it will probably never happen again. Haha


I've been in such a flower frenzy lately since it has been starting to look and feel like spring. I'm very excited to see flowers and blooms again... aren't these flowers gorgeous? We were at Home Depot looking at stepping stones to put in our driveway for safety, and I had to look in their nursery.

I've been teasing Ernie-cat all week with catnip-scented bubbles. At first, he was scared of them when they were floating in the air - until he smelled them, and then went nuts. Going nuts for him is throwing himself down on the floor and passing out though, so it's not quite what I had intended for those bubbles to do. Silly cat! =^.^=

For the first time in a really long time, I had vlogged. I've started anew on healthier eating path in an attempt to lose weight (again) and Monday was my last day of old habits...as you'll see.

I've been trying to clean up my "Inspiration Station" and make it more functional. I have stuff everywhere, but it is slowly coming together. I plan on blogging more about the process of making it look pretty sometime in the future. It's obvious that Ernie-cat was waiting for me to let him back inside.

Speaking of....

I'm now ready to head off to bed and cuddle this little furbaby munchkin - he is how curled up right next to me in his sleepy half-asleep mode waiting for me to get comfy so he can get fully comfy. 

Good night and sweet dreams!

Blossoms & Light : A Pastel Photoshoot

How glorious are the delicate blossoms that sprout in the springtime? It is my most favorite thing about the arrival of springtime - the little pops of pink and white littering residential roads with tiny pastel petals after a gusty wind flow. 
A few weeks ago, inspiration sprung up at me while admiring the poppy pink trees on a drive through a windy country road. I was on my way to visit my sister with my DSLR camera in tow. Our plan was for me to practice portrait shots using my new 50 mm 1.8 f/s lens with her as my subject, and since I was still an hour and a half away, I called Stephie and asked if she knew of any blossoming cherry trees nearby for a chance of scenery. She didn't.
When I arrived, we drove around with our sights set upon finding the perfect setting. We found it serendipitously - in an almost-empty field at the local community college. It was perfect! A single tree with downy white petals bubbling around its dark branches, surrounded by emerald green grass and …

Creating Pockets of Adventures

Blessed. This is the perfect word to describe my life. While not everything goes in the direction I hope, nor does it ever happen in the ways I plan, it's mine and I have joy. More often than not, I face obstacles and sometimes rather painful experiences that I find to be overwhelming at times. All the same, I conquer. I have faith in a few things: a higher power, that higher power within me, and in myself. Faith always carries me through and has brought me to where I am.
I think my life to be somewhat average in many ways. I am not poor, but I am not wealthy. I can usually obtain the things I want if I plan for them and budget in most instances. However, I wasn't always affluent enough to afford small luxuries, such as my beloved Starbucks habit or my car. These two things would have exceeded my budget by far if I were 23-years-old again.  
Though, one thing that I am wealthy with is ambition. I've always been wealthy with ambition. If I want something, I find a way to m…

A Spring in My Steps

For those of you who have followed me for some time, you must know by now that one of my favorite spots here in Seattle is Green Lake. There's something so serene in walking the almost-three mile path around the lake - all while never even leaving the city. It's a short drive away and I find myself longing for a visit when I think only of its lush natural scenery and everything you could want in a park.
I went to Green Lake earlier in the day than normal and spotted these lovely little crocuses, reaching their aubergine-veined petals through the soil. I see them every year scattered about the city, but something about how they always reach for the sky makes them so relatable. 
Starting my walk, I noticed the eerie sky and how white it was with overcast - there were crows cawing and screeching from all over, fields and branches full of birds. My assumption is that after all the earthworms were about and crows were swarming to get a shot at their evening meal. 
Concluding my wa…
