long time no blog.

Guess what, I'm back.

Saying the last month has been crazy would be a huge understatement. I had to deal with some personal things, and therefore decided to take a break from blogging to focus on myself, and my sanity.
I packed, I moved, I got tattooed, I tattooed, I painted, I turned 26, and I chopped my hair off, and I finally am happy to say I feel like me again. <3

Portland is beautiful these days, sunny weather, bike rides, fruits and veggies, BBQ's and friends.

I just wanted to share some pictures of what I have been up to, I'll be blogging regularly again, so please stop by <3






Love you all.

xoxo.

Glad you're back!

What studio do you tattoo at? I live in Norway (Haugesund, Rogaland)at the moment, but my family is near Seattle and I have lots of friends around Portland, I would love to get tattooed by you on my next visit to the States!
Is the dog art you featured on this post yours? Would you consider doing ones similar to those, but inspired by my dogs, for example? That would RULE.

at first glance, i totally thought that was a photo of jayme!! haha, you look a lot like her now with the short hair. it's super cute <3

Sarah said...

P.S. GREAT choice in hair cut.

kt_kthx said...

I was always jealous/envious of your long beautiful black hair, but I also think that haircut looks fantastic on you! You look great! Fresh starts are always best with a new haircut.

I had a friend who got his armpits tattooed, and I was always curious if they'd ever fade or "warp", being in such a strange spot.

Glad you're back to blogging, I was beginning to wonder where you've been!

kt_kthx said...

Ps. I love your little watercolor of the three states you've lived in! <3 Portland, Maine!

Love or Nothing said...

Kristin Ryan said...

I absolutely love your new haircut. I'm chopping all of mine off (down to the middle of my back)in a few weeks when I move. New starts are amazing, aren't they? I'm glad you are back because I missed reading your lovely posts, but it is always good to take a break and have time to yourself. Kristin

Kristin! said...

Beautiful lady, I'm so glad you're back and feelin' all fresh and new.

If you're still accepting them and feeling up to it, can I re-request a pet portrait? (Bandit, the German Shepard)?

Celina said...

I'm so happy you're doing well! Ouch, those tattoos are beautiful, but my tattoo artist told me that is the most painful part of your body to be tattooed on. Anyways, you're hair is gorgeous. I love it!

Anonymous said...

So happy to see you are back, I was a little worried that something might have happened to you. Love your hair, wish I could pull off a short cut (and believe me I've tried...twice...a decade apart...and hated it on me both times) As always, looking forward to your posts!
