as i sit in jfk airport at 6:13 a.m. on a monday morning in august,
halfway through a diet dr. pepper and more than a little bit drowsy,
i think about the past few weeks.
the undoubtedly bed-bug infested, harder-than-the-floor bed i slept in last night in queens,
the recent hectic (but awesome) wedding weekend in washington state (including my first time crafting a legitimate bridal bouquet and a beautiful shoot in a wheat field),
the soreness that won't seem to leave my muscles, post workout/boating/move,
the new apartment that awaits me in utah, only 1/3 of the way unpacked,
the adventures with friends,
the finals and upcoming scholastic endeavors that await with a new semester,
and alll the work.
it has all been so crazy.
i know i've said it before, but i really have never slept so many four-hours-of-sleep nights in my life.
but you know what?
i wouldn't change it.
i've made some incredible friends and wonderful memories.
i got some more schooling under my belt.
and i got to work with these wonderful people (among many, many others):
and now i'm off! again.
this time, i'm headed to the dominican republic to do a different kind of photography work.
and i really cannot wait.
i'm so grateful to have all of these excellent opportunities.
see you in a few weeks, america!
