Check out their store!

captured by the fuzz

Here lately I have been slightly obsessing over old mugshot images.
They posses a beauty that no modern mugshot will be able to carry-especially those of women.
Who were these women, and what did they do to get locked up?
I wish there was a way to know the answers to these questions, but for now, i'll continue to make up my own stories about the lives they might have lead.

I have old photographs that i have found & collected over the years scattered throughout my room and in boxes here and there. Now I'm on the search for the next best thing-old mugshots!

the last quarter(at last!)

It has taken me forever & a day to get this last post up, but i've been too busy enjoying life, and now, being sick again.

here it is
2010 year in review

I turned 21 this month-which called for unexpected bands playing on my front porch, champagne toasts, and many days spent outside under the autumn leaves.

November was surprisingly sunny, loaded with school work(as it always is) & a little glimpse into the emotions that would come with December.
(for my birdhouse ladies)

The ever changing month of December. This was a difficult one. I began slowly packing up my room, finished the semester, stayed up late nearly every night talking with my roommates about our lives and the changes that were taking place, and at the end of the month, said goodbye to my beloved Birdhouse, the place I have called home for 2 and a half years. Christmas was spent sick in bed while missing my sister who is far across the sea(boy do i look forward to next christmas!)
Looking back, i realize that "difficult" was definitely an understatement.
But i'm in no way complaining. When i look back on this year & see all the beautiful things that occurred, I have nothing to do but be thankful for what i'm blessed with.

the third quarter

year in review

a month consumed by explosions of light & fiery sunsets(& love, too)

If i could use one word to describe August it would be ethereal. Simply divine. I spent the first moments of August watching the sunrise over the Ozark mountains and alongside a blue river. I traveled to Chicago with friends, listened to music, surrounded by city. I celebrated three amazing years with my love.

A bittersweet month.
School kicked into action, the weather remained beautiful, and my sister departed for Spain, where she will live for a year. The four of us(my mom, dad, Meg and I) spent our last day together hiking to one of the most beautiful spots in Arkansas in the morning light on a peaceful empty trail.
