Love, Sun & Peace


Here lately I have been a little bit more motivated in taking my own photos for my blog. I guess it’s like a challenge that I feel I must overcome.
Each time I go to a site to take photos, I think to myself “Will this post be inspirational to someone?” and I pray to God for help. Him & I, we are like a team. 🙂

Lights, Camera, and Action!!!!!!!!
Another thing I am learning about taking your own photos is you must be comfortable with you and this project and as my boyfriend told me yesterday “Own it!!”.
Basically, don’t be afraid of people staring at you. I almost got a little nervous when a young boy and his Mom went past me on a bike and then I thought “Michal, just zone everyone out. Own it”.
“If you accept it, the world around you MUST follow suit”.

One thing I have learned about blogging is you have to stay consistent, no matter what. That is the only way to build your audience and your brand and sometimes in life there are hurdles to overcome………….(it happens, just roll with it).
Here recently, I have been trying to teach myself how to be my own photographer. The inside story is my photographer, who is my oldest child, works really long and hard hours as a manager in the foodservice industry. I am so proud of him for his work ethic…………(proud Mom moment, let me take a moment. #veklempt Talk amongst yourselves)
Okay, I’m back. The result is I need to find a photographer………….enter myself in the training wheels phase of the world of photography.
I took these photos over the weekend and for the next month, I will try to commit to learning how to master taking selfies. Lift me up in your prayers, won’t you? 🙂

The “E True Personal Blog Story!” behind #OOTD posts are they sometimes have to happen quick. Sometimes, you are about to leave with kids in the car and you’re all like “Hurry up and take this picture so I can post it”. #noliestold

The reason I wanted to post this jumpsuit is that I have been waiting for a few months for this Free People Color My World jumpsuit to go on sale. I saw it originally in the Free People store but when I checked online and it was nearly 50% off at Macy’s, well, I just had to have it. I consider these types of situations as blessings. #thankful
