So I haven't blogged in...uh...something like a week... I've just been chillin' off the radar for the last little while. Haven't seen the guys from the band too much, and been getting ready for the move. (Next week!) So things are a little boring around here these days and there... Continue reading

A couple weeks ago I said that my "Saturday Morning Coffee" was becoming extinct as I just didn't feel it anymore... So welcome to the "Weekly Recap" which is in all honesty, pretty much the same damn thing - minus the photo of coffee. The beginning of the week started... Continue reading

June was a really quiet and chill month compared to May. It wasn't a completly favorable month...but whatever, nothing is going to top May -ever. (Have I told you how much I miss being on tour?!) 1. Hello summer! The start of these fuzzy things adorning my lawn. 2. Also,... Continue reading

It seems like just yesterday I was writing last months "life lately" post. How time flies!!! THINKING ABOUT Stand up paddleboarding. I took an intro class the other day and all I can think about is getting back on the water. Definitly something I need to be doing pretty much... Continue reading

A celebratory drink was had this morning as we signed the papers for the new apartment we will be renting come mid July! (I don't drink and it was 9:30 AM so we went to our favorite Starbucks - which we will be within walking distance to again! SO EXCITED!)... Continue reading

The Unfortunates latest music video for their new single (and my new favorite song) Brick By Brick came out today! It sends a powerful message about bullying. But I will let the video speak for itself... Huge props to Sam for doing such an awesome job as the main character!... Continue reading

"IT MAY NOT BE EASY, BUT IT WILL BE WORTH IT" I think this is something that we all have to remind ourselves of every once and a while. Currently I am creating a brand new photography website and am going through thousands of photos I took to find THE... Continue reading

I guess it is mid year (already, I know!) so I should take a moment to revisit my goals I had for this year and reflect on my progress (or lack thereof) Original content from the first post is in italics and quotes, and my thoughts are after. You can... Continue reading

There is nothing better than looking at a clean and organized bookshelf! Side note, this is only partially organized. Not sure how nerdy I want to get by organization - haha! And yes, these are the books I read for fun. To me there is no sense wasting the time... Continue reading

"Work hard. Stay humble" We can all get caught up in the moment and over inflate our egos when it is really unnecessary, or when we get "there" let our successes get to our head. Yes, one can be proud of themselves, but you cannot forget where you came from,... Continue reading

This afternoon I went out to get some supplies for a DIY project for my office. Currently I am waiting for one side of stain to dry so I can finish up the other side. (Always takes FOREVER!!!) Stay tuned to see what I am making! Continue reading

Good morning and happy weekend! Drinking coffee out of my most favorite mug! (I'm a sucker for inspirational quotes - especially this one!) I'm hoping your week was better than mine! (Let's just say that mine was a little crappy...) But in other news, the last couple days I have... Continue reading

I've wanted to write this post since the huge public clash between concert photographer Rohan Anderson and The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus... There is this ongoing battle with photographers and clients (and friends of clients, fans, etc) with the rampant use of social media and sharing photos without giving the photographer...

Just thought I would share what went into make the digital tour poster. It's always fun to see the before/after and progress, but I'm kind of a nerd like that... And I kind of hope you are too! It all started last summer when I was lying in the middle... Continue reading

The album has been released, the tour is over, we've reorganized band duties so we can all be rockstars at what we do, and unfortunately back to our "9-5" life... So it is safe to say that my workload has dramatically decreased. It's a bittersweet thing. I'm a workoholic... But... Continue reading

This morning I was running late... However, I stopped to grab a coffee anyway, I NEEDED it. Little did I know how much I needed it until I read the quote of the sleeve. "You are here not to shrink down to less, but to blossom into more of who... Continue reading

WOW! Where do I even start?!... I was hoping to write each day on my blog as they happened, but after you drive all day, have a show, haul gear around, get to wherever you are staying for the night, and wind down you are pretty exhausted and just want... Continue reading

PS - It is really no big deal... "You survived?" "How was it being in the van that long with the guys?" "Hope you kept the guys in line..." Were the top comments/questions made when people I knew saw me winding down to the end of tour. My answers to... Continue reading

This quote is my favorite at the moment! Experiencing tour life (albeit for only a short period of time) made me want it so much more!!! I can't even explain how much I loved it. I am actually having a hard time adjusting back to the regular "9-5". I truly... Continue reading

Yesterday I was in a major creativity slump. I pretty much sat there looking at my project all day without really making any progress. I just went back and forth between bins of clips figuring out what I wanted to start on first. Nothing really got started on. But late... Continue reading
