Hello Friends….

Long time no blog! Life is pretty busy right now between classes, work, and just life. I haven’t had time for creative projects that photograph well, and I’m 100% positive you don’t want to read about Microeconomics and Statistics. I have…

Break

Break

I know things have been rather silent here since Christmas. It’s not a reflection of my offline life, which is a hustle from day to day. I just haven’t had time to create as I focus on other projects. I’m…

Finding Hygge

Photography by Rebekah Burder. Did anyone else feel like you blinked and June was gone? I did. The long summer days are blending into each other, and I’m enjoying them. We’re so far north that the sun begins to rise…

April Color Wrap-Up

Another month has flown by. I really can’t believe how quickly time goes now, but anyway. None of my moping. This month’s theme, Color, was so interesting to me because it’s not an area that I’m naturally strong in. I’ve…
