being present.

One of things I both admire and love about kids is their present minds. You can physically see their train of thoughts..."oh, look there's a bird. run. but wait what's this down here? can I eat it?" some might say these poor kids have ADD. I say find me a child that DOESN'T think like that. I recently met a little girl that spent the afternoon going about her normal routine of playing hide and seek, gymnastics, asking questions but decided she was going to speak to everyone in her English accent. She is a trip. Kids are a trip. I don't have kids and am not anywhere close to ready for that step in my personal life but I absolutely love hanging out with them.

These photos are of an awesome family in Florida that I stayed with for a few days. We rode our bikes out to this pier in their neighborhood that opened up to nothing but marshlands and birds. It was such a cool spot! The youngest was on the move the whole time...seriously, check out some of her moves.

You ladies are so much fun. Thanks for taking me out there! See you next time!

resting in peace.

this unique graveyard is both beautiful and eerie. I love how they still stand strong aside from the years weathering. I can't help but imagine the pilots who flew these planes...

a winter engagement.

Before Christmas I met up with Melissa and Scott for their "winter wonderland shoot" as I'm calling it. There was ice-skating, hiking, Christmas lights, climbing trees, laughing, snow... It really was a blast...although, me on ice-skates with camera equipment = not good. Enjoy the images! Melissa and Scott - see you guys in the spring! Thanks for being so open to just play and have some fun! : )

Sprocket's Food Truck.

When I lived in Portland there was an entire town square dedicated to food trucks. You had your pick of food from all over the world all served fresh, quick and cheap. It was awesome. I was pretty stoked to hear Sprockets, a local bike shop in St Augustine, Florida, just opened a food truck right outside the shop! I don't live there anymore but since I've been here for about a 10 days or so I've been working my way through their menu and let me tell you, it is SO TASTY! They are using locally made vegan bread, local tempeh and other fresh ingredients. Derrick's there cooking up some magic. My top favs: the Tempeh Chili (seriously yummy) and the Tour de Vegi. Really whatever you order is quite good. For those of you in St Augustine, check them out. You can find more info on the link above.

As a side note, the yellow beach cruiser had my name all over it...

Thanks for all the good food guys! See you next trip!
