I'm a wife, an artist, and a lover of dogs, rock music, and abstract art. I'm a Virginia girl with equal love for California sun and New York grunge. 
I see the most beauty in imperfect things. Ripped jeans. Asymmetrical art. Vintage everything. And a photo with a little girt and grain. I love things that are rugged and little bit off the beaten path.

Four Lovely Days In London

8/05/2013

After the mission trip, Dre & I backpacked up to London and stayed in a hostel. We figured we were there so we must see London. Everyone has asked, “How was London!?” I must say it was brilliant (British would say that) but there was one thing that was pretty terrible; no ice. They were experiencing a heat wave, as we were also here in the U.S. Its always cold and rainy there so they don’t quite know what to do. Everywhere we went they either didn’t have ac or barely had ice. I was so glad to have a glass of ice cold water when I got back!

The changing of the guard was so exciting! There was such a large crowd and I think it had to do with the royal baby being born!

These little girls were so excited while waiting for the guards to walk out. They were dolls!

I know this guy was completely annoyed with me. His annoyance egged me on more.

It seemed like a lot of people were just so exhausted from life. A lot of people had given up. I just wanted to hug them and say, “Don’t give up, your life is not over!”
