Balloon Festival

I've never seen Hot Air Balloons up close before! I even got to ride in one for the first time! What an experience that was. The average Hot Air Balloon weighs over 800 pounds and can fly as high as 50,000 feet!! WOW! 

It was a gorgeous day for this festival to happen! There were hundreds of people at this festival and the best part of it all was...  When they blew the balloons up, the crowd was absolutely silent! Everyone is in amazement! It was so breath-taking to see! Definitely a very memorable moment. 

Have you guys ever seen or been in a hot air balloon before? Let me know your experience! 

Museum of Art

Every single art museum is different. It's so interesting how each artist views art.

How they all create something so different and unique, but beautiful at the same time. When I was younger, I really didn't see what art was, as I grow older, I understand it more and appreciate it to a whole other level. Then again, we don't need to understand what art really is. That's what makes it ART. 

A Little Flower Garden

The PEAK of spring is one of the most beautiful times! Everything coming back to life from the cold winter months.. Seeing nature take its place again.

It's a little tough since I get the worst allergies in the springtime.. But it's honestly so WORTH IT to be out doors seeing flowers bloom, little animals growing up - It is all so amazing to watch happen! The best piece of advice I can give you, is to take a moment to notice the little things that life offers. You'd be surprised on how much you are missing out.. It'll brighten up your day I promise you.. 

 

NEW YORK CITY

People always say you can never be bored in NYC - Well it's true! I've been recently and it's quite the place to be.. There's so much to see and do, it's crazy!  It can all be a tad overwhelming at first I might admit, but you then become well-adjusted after a while! If you love the city life, you're at the right place. 

The smells of the city, the people of the city, the architecture of the city, - Everything is so interesting and fascinating. I feel as if I am a little ant in the middle of everything as it all happens. Everyone is going somewhere. It's amazing how so many people are in one place all at once. Something is always happening in NYC. 

So if you haven't been to New York yet, you are missing out on some beauty.. Take a trip and see for yourself.. 

How it all started..

 

The beginning of Fall last year, I was going through a tough time.. I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life  - what career path would be best for me. I had felt as if I was in a maze and could go one direction, but also could go the other.. I know a lot of young adults go through this struggle of not knowing what to do and it's frustrating for a ton of people.. I didn't expect to know my whole life plan, but I wanted some sort of idea and direction towards something. 

I have always loved photography. The way a camera can capture memories is absolutely incredible to me! It took me seeing a single small rose to really understand the meaning and true depth of photography though. Depth to me, my soul, my future. 

Every plant at this point of the year had slowly gone to sleep and became dark and quiet.. My dad and I were walking down this long pathway Downtown.  We had our hoods on since it was raining. There was an old water fountain and lots of weeds growing up and down along walls through this pathway. I glanced around quickly but something catches my eye.. In a small corner by the fountain I saw a very very small red rose. It was so bright and still full of life. I went to my knees and became mesmerized by its color and liveliness. After taking this picture, I realized a lot in that moment. 

I wanted to change for the better. I wanted to BECOME better. Become alive and free. Just like that flower was in that dead garden of other flowers. I wanted to bring color to other people's life like that flower brought to mine. I know this may sound corny or overly-dramatic to some. But for me, taking the time to notice the little things in life, will change your life.  As most of us today, we're either on our phones or just in "our own world", far far away in deep thought not paying attention..   We all get so caught up in our day-to-day lives and forget to notice the beauty around us. 

After that day, I grew and realized I wanted to show other's the beauty around us. I'll create and bring the beauty to you.  My World becomes your World. 

So the next time, you have the opportunity to go out and explore, keep your eyes open.. You never know what you'll find. 

"Notice the little things that life creates for us to see.”
