I appreciate your concern, but...

So there I am at 9:00 a.m. waiting in the Chiropractors office awaiting the relief that will soon follow from a little crackin of the back. It's early enough in the day that I don't have a lot of things on my mind yet and it's a good day. The Dr. calls my name because it's my turn, I lay on the table and the first question out of his mouth before he asks how my back is doing is "So, how's the boyfriend?"

So much from my good morning.

I had to break the news to him and inform him that, once again, there is no boyfriend.  I had hoped by the tone of my voice he would catch the fact that the topic should be changed and conversation of "boyfriend" over.


He then proceeded to tell me that around his office, they all guessed I was jugglin multiple men each weekend.

That sounds sketchy, I know. But it wasn't.

15 minutes of my 30 minute appointment was consumed of DATING ADVICE from my chiropractor!


Things like, "well, the guys are most likely more nervous than you to talk to you, so you should initiate some conversations to ease their nerves." or, "a smile goes a long way." and "you'd be surprised what a touch on the elbow will do".

OK... I can understand the little nudges here and there from the family and friends, but really? Him?

It's not as weird when I walk into my aunt an uncles house and the first thing Devin asks me is whether or not I'll be getting married anytime soon. Then after I reply with that answer that everyone hates he says "Oh... I better start praying for you then. How about we say a prayer right now?"

Thank you for your deep concern world, but I'm fully aware of the fact that I am single. And, it's okay.

Most days :)

{Mason Moore} St. George, Utah Senior Photographer

Remember me? I used to take pictures all the time, then I decided that I needed to take the year off so I could focus on finishing school. I've missed it SO much - not school, photographing cool people like you. I've been working on a few things that I will be posting here soon! 

A few weeks ago, I went down to St. George during a week off of school and was able to do Mason's senior pictures! Before this shoot, I was thinking of maybe not doing photography anymore. Thank goodness for this shoot and helping me realize that I never want to take a year break from photography again. Worst. Decision. Ever.

Here is Mason Moore. Mason is pretty cool. I mean, he plays Lacrosse! I feel like my life is that much more cool now that I know someone who plays Lacrosse. Mason also loves having his picture taken. I'm really glad that I was able to be apart of the highlight of his senior year of high school ;)  And, how cool is it that he wore a TUX?! 

And show me some love down in the comments section. It's been a while!

"If we spend our days waiting for fabulous roses, we could miss the beauty and wonder of the tiny forget-me-nots that are all around us."

"Never stop striving for the best that is within you. Never stop hoping for all of the righteous desires of your heart. But don’t close your eyes and hearts to the simple and elegant beauties of each day’s ordinary moments that make up a rich, well-lived life." -- President Uchtdorf.

"The happiest people I know are not those who find their golden ticket; they are those who, while in pursuit of worthy goals, discover and treasure the beauty and sweetness of the everyday moments. They are the ones who, thread by daily thread, weave a tapestry of gratitude and wonder throughout their lives. These are they who are truly happy." -- President Uchtdorf
