this is real life

photo by the amazingly talented cori kindred

I started this blog out of necessity.  I started it because I missed having a creative space.  I love color, textures and being inspired and I needed somewhere to explore that.  and so here we are. I am still figuring all of this out, what it is exactly I want to put here, share here, make this place.  I just hope when people visit here they leave with a smile on their face. 

and please don't be shy. leave a comment so i know your out there.
