Marriage Is Not For Me...

I found this article on the website Forward Walking: the pathway to change and it is THE best advice for couples I've ever read. It's definitely made me change my way of thinking about coupledom in very real ways. I had to share since some visitors of this blog are getting hitched. It's a must read! Click here to read!

Tubac Town Tourista

Kim and I ventured to Old Town Tubac to be complete tourists with the cameras around our necks and a soy latte in hand. It's very quaint which I find peaceful and it had great galleries, both art and jewelry. As you can see we were both seduced by some turquoise, one of my all time favorites and Kim's birthstone. Blue was the theme of our walk about, for sure!

Rio Rico Retreat

I'm doing a photo shoot in Rio Rico, AZ this entire week adventuring and capturing travel photos. It's been tough getting up at 5 am and all this stomping of the earth plus daily runs is making me sore! This trip would have been impossible without my friend/tour guide/ photo assistant Kim, she's a blast! Here are some favorites so far and I'll post more later on in the week, also added to the travel gallery on my website!

Remember the Music Event

If you are in Los Angeles this weekend and love music and having a good time for a good cause (Betty's Foundation for Elimination of Alzheimer's) then you should attend this event! And you should bid on a silver or gold LOVE bullet necklace in the silent auction!!! Let's raise some $$$ for a good cause!

The Insta Update

Lately, a lot has gone on in my life. Things just couldnt be better, really! Here are a few things you've missed because I admit I have been neglecting my blog, but I HAVE been keeping up on Instagram so here is a photo story.... and click here to follow me in insta if you like photos of love, food, beauty, street style, nature, beaches, penguins and pasta. And happiness. The main reason for my smile lately is because I've been blessed to have finally met my soul mate. I know that phrase invokes cringe in some people, so I'll use the term "partner in crime" instead and because that seems more accurate. We love going to see live music together, road trips to California or just staying in bed all day on a Sunday laughing. He's basically my best friend and I'm so honored and excited that he has asked me to marry him! I can say with certainty that I know the cliche saying "when you know, you know" to be true because as soon as we met, I was enchanted by him. And growing more and more by the day :)

Phoenix Real Estate Tour 2013

 So, I just got into my place in Scottsdale, AZ and one day later I get this great job opportunity to take real estate photos of houses all around Phoenix, Surprise, Paradise Valley, etc. so it's lots of driving and blasting music but when I get an adorable house, I have so much fun photographing it! Their are a lot of great houses out there so if you are looking for one, let me know your style and desired area and I will keep my eyes open! Here is the guest bath in a house I shot today and I loved the little seating area...reminds me of a spa. Happy Sunday! xo, L
