Alley Walker Series:Thorn.

Sunday at sunset I went on a walk through the alley across from my house. I live in the best neighborhood, so many beautiful craftsman bungalow houses, each so unique and colorful. I live in the Whiteaker neighborhood in Eugene, OR. It's known for it's creativity and for being "weird". When you think about it, it's quite trendy. Boys with beards, pubs.. it's like a mini Portland but with less hipsters and it's less expensive to live here. I love my little neighborhood. So, I walked through the alley because I needed a moment to myself. I took a few photos, and found some great backdrops for future projects. After wandering through the alley ways of my neighborhood, I decided that I was going to start a series revolving around alley ways, calling it "Alley Walker", it kind of sounds like someone's name doesn't it? :) I've been in need of inspiration, and this photo has done it. It may be simple, but it's inspiring to me.

What inspires you?

Sweet Nothing.

Valentine's Day is approaching! I'm throwing a Wine and Cheese party at my house for my friends and some family. I have to admit, I am one of those people who LOVE valentine's day. I plan on going all out, it's going to get expensive. Truth be told, I always want to have parties, but the preparation stresses me out because I've always been a procrastinator! I dislike that very much, because I would like to actually enjoy the experience. I hope that I will learn from these mistakes that I'm making this Holiday season and change the way I do things from now on. One can only hope. I plan on posting my party prep on here as I go on, so wish me luck! Also, I'm going up to Portland with my mom to visit with my cousin, Jess, who lives up there now. I plan on doing a few gluten free bakery/restaurant reviews while I'm up there. So, keep reading, my blog will get much more interesting. 

 Took this a while back at the end of Autumn, on one of our last sunny days here in Oregon.

I have my very own bugs bunny ;)

What are your plans for Valentine's day? Are you a lover, or a hater?
