You can go your own way…

Its been a year. nearly. I can’t believe I haven’t drawn or posted for a year to all you lovely people.

In that year I quit my job to focus on my own business, spent a whole summer photographing people in love and editing weddings.

I crashed completely burnt out in October with no idea what I felt or wanted. Went to a party, met a boy… you know how it goes. Fell in love and now, here I am.

Altogether changed and altogether more focused than ever. Completely in love with the man I want to spend the rest of my life with. Because when you know, you know. And I believe that now.

Here are some random snippets of my year, from rainy London streets to photoshoots in the woods, red lips and taking baby steps into drawing again.

This year I have big plans for my little corner of the world here but more on that very soon…

You see the world in black and white…

Sometimes it’d good to take things back to basics. Pen and paper. Ink and water. To stop looking at things in colours or shades. Or ‘maybes’ or ‘one days’. To just take people for who they are in the moment that you have them and nothing more. Seeing things in black and white makes me stronger than ever. Makes me less fooled when people have no intention of sticking around.

I remember when this year began and someone told me that it was going to be unlucky. That the number 13 was set to change things up for everyone. Well I wish I knew then what I know now. Because now is beautiful. Now is worth everything that changed this year, its worth all the so called mistakes and lessons. I am exactly where I’m meant to be.

Plenty of beautiful things from lately. Grace and the Heart adventures with my besties, sneak peek at a fashion photoshoot I just shot for my friends final collection (more on that real soon!), and lots of things to spend days in the sun thinking about. How great is the ‘a beautiful mess’ app for photos?! And how beautiful is my little god daughter to be?! Despite a lot of changes lately, I like finding myself again in amongst everything that happened this year. And I like finding that I’ve learnt a thing or two. Now that can’t hurt.

Everlong

I’ve had more time to draw lately. I think I forgot for a while just how much it means to me. I let life and love get in the way, and I let things change me. But if theres one thing I know its that when I draw or take pictures or hear certain songs I start to work things out in my head. I make sense of things that dont make any sense. This song was ours for a good little while. And now its all mine.
