When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'. - Erma Bombeck 
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” - Albert Einstein
i cannot explain in words how excited i am to show you these. this is brieanna, a dear friend with so many beautiful talents. we spent about two hours yesterday traipsing around georgetown (where the historic houses and volkswagen vans are) looking through church windowpanes and sitting in the middle of the road. along with her shoot, i'm going to share some words that come straight from my heart. and i hope they'll find their way into yours. but until then, happy president's day. i highly endorse abe lincoln's facial hair.

  21. ps

    tell brianna that Acacia (a 16 year-old girl living in England) really really wants her dress. and hair. and lips. and eyes. and, well, you get the gist. geez, I think she should be in an anthro mag or something.

    1. thank you soooo much! also i don't know why it's not pinning my photos. i didn't set my blog so it couldn't do that, so jocelyn is confused....

    2. that's odd. :/ it's probably something in your HTML.

    3. I think it's because they're from Flickr. Either your policy or theirs is limiting accessibility.

    4. i'll try to pin them myself and see if that works. :)
